For my husband’s 40th birthday I decided to take him on a weekend trip to New York City. I booked roundtrip seats on Amtrak, purchased tickets to a Broadway play (Front Page with Nathan Lane, John Goodman, and John Slatterly—so funny!!), and made dinner reservations at the epic Eleven Madison Park. And, of course, I had to book a really special place to stay, which led me to reserve a room at Park Hyatt New York . From the magnificent service to the gorgeous space, we were not disappointed!

The Room: When you arrive at the Park Hyatt you will be warmly greeted at the door, and then whisked upstairs in the elevator. Upon check-in your bags will be taken to your room, which will be impeccably clean, spacious, and have stunning views. Our king size bed was piled high with fluffy pillows, and the sparkling free-standing tub in the bathroom is right by the window so you can enjoy the view while soaking in bubbles (and hopefully drinking bubbles!) The bathroom also had double sinks and a huge shower. Needless to say, we never wanted to leave this hotel room!

The Special Touches: Knowing it was my husband’s birthday the staff presented us with a chocolate mousse dessert, a box of truffles and a bottle of sparkling wine as soon as we arrived in our room. It made the occasion especially memorable.

The Food & Drinks: We grabbed a quick lunch before the Broadway show and then headed back to the hotel to enjoy coffee with our complimentary chocolate mousse. It was as decadent as it looks! Before dinner, we went to the hotel bar, called The Living Room, where we enjoyed a glass of bubbly and a hand-crafted cocktail. The next morning we ordered room service to enjoy with our bottle of bubbly. Marco and I shared crisp Belgian waffles with fresh whipped cream, berries, and powdered sugar. It was the best possible start to the day!

The Verdict: Park Hyatt New York is luxury at its height! You won’t want to stay anywhere else after a night at this gem.
