SLEEPING IN NEW YORK
one of my favorite parts of traveling is the hotels. i’ve just always loved that first couple minutes when you check in and look around the room to see what they have. things like nice robes, cute bathroom products, delicious mini bar treats…
this time while we taught blogshop in new york we stayed at the nolitan hotel just north of little italy. it was a great location right on the other side of the williamsburg bridge so we could quickly get over there for class. we could walk to a bunch of really cute shops and cafes. and the beds were super comfortable, which is always a plus.
when i got to NY, the JFK airport was more of a mess than it usually is and after waking up at 4am, flying in a middle seat, carrying 3 bags while hungry and tired…it was a REAL treat to show up at the hotel while they were serving free drinks and snacks. they did that every day in the hotel from 5-7 pm and i thought it was such a nice touch that i rarely ever see done in hotels. it’s those little things, eh?
it was a nice change from some of our normal hotel spots and fun to explore a new neighborhood. (this restaurant was right across the street!) and hotels that offer free wifi win serious points with me. have you ever stayed here? what are some of your other favorite hotel spots in the city?
take note: it’s usually a total mess on the other side of the photograph. ha!
