Staff and correspondents from The Boston Globe recently published their top recommendations on where to travel, where to stay, what to do and what to eat in 2014. We are thrilled to share what Christopher Muther had to say about his recent ‘fantasy’ stay in The Towers.
A NEW YORK FANTASY STAY
I am a fan of posh hotels (I immediately check the brand of soap and shampoo to determine the level of hotel I’m patronizing) and I tend to be a bit of a snob about accommodations. Checking the brand of shower gel was not necessary at The New York Palace. Mine was a room like no other, and I’m pretty sure the suite was larger than my Boston apartment. In a fantasy, I strolled from the giant bedroom and surveyed my temporary domain. A bath and a half, a palatial living room, and a full kitchen. Foyer? Coat closet? Check. The property just underwent a $140 million renovation and was dripping in rich materials. It was, hands down, the nicest (and priciest) place I’ve ever stayed. I even hosted a party. With a view of St. Patrick’s Cathedral below, I enjoyed a lovely night sampling the one percenter life. One-bedroom suites from $995 a night.
