hotel grace nyc.

just a few of the many reasons why this is where i, along with a best mate, will be staying for our next trip to the city;

theres a mezzanine-level pool with an under-water sound system that sits centre-stage behind a glass wall in the lobby • djs spin every night until 3 • a 24-hour kiosk in the lobby houses such necessities as french vogue, your favourite pack of cigarettes & anything else needed to keep the mini bar in your room chicly stocked • its decor is fabulously minimal & modern • each room has big enough windows perfect to keep undraped for the city lights • the beds lay low to the ground on leather platforms - a look i just love • you can have an in room massage any time of the night • its in the center of midtown

oh, & it was also the hotel of choice for roisin murphy, who stayed here the last time she was in town for a certain show at mansion i attended last month.

as if that alone wasnt enough...

Wow-ee. That place looks incredibly chic. I'm in Brooklyn but wouldn't mind spending a few nights there just for the heck of it.

yeah it's a cool hotel...nice design/accomadations for a good price. i live in nyc so i've hung out there in the pool for friend's parties there and seen the rooms. they are tiny but designed cool and you are right off timesquare if you are visiting and want to be near all that.

oo yes we should definitely arrange a little borrowing session hehe ;)

that hotel looks amazing. you should definitely go there, and you should do it next time Roisin Murphy goes so you can "casually" bump into her in the hallway. you'll become friends and you can travel all around the world with her. haha a little carried away here..but it could happen ;)

have a lovely sunday evening xxxx

what an incredibly fabulous hotel.
as soon as i read a 24 hour kiosk stocking french vogue and cigarettes i think i was in... or was it the under water sound system, or the djs until 3 every night, or.... wow. the whole thing just sounds marvellous.
