When you're traveling to New York City, where you stay is important. I love being in the centre of it all, somewhere central to all the things I love—Fifth Avenue for all the shopping, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Broadway Theatres.
I just got back from my favourite trip to New York City. I had the amazing opportunity to stay at the gorgeous Omni Berkshire Place Hotel right in Midtown Manhattan, in the luxurious Madison Suite, overlooking 52nd Street and Madison Avenue, steps away from the places I mentioned above.
A few words come to mind when I think about the Omni Berkshire Place Hotel: Classy. Elegant. Traditional. Modern. Clean. Chic. Basically, everything I want in a luxury hotel.
As soon as we walked into the Omni, we were greeted by a gorgeous flower arrangement, which perfectly matched the spring-like temperatures outside. (We were so lucky with the fabulous weather during our stay in NYC—we even had coffee on a patio... outside!)
The front desk staff were extremely friendly, and we were checked into our suite on the 10th floor right away. Concierge was also very helpful during our stay, and even printed our Broadway tickets and made dinner reservations for us.
When we opened the door to our 781 square-foot suite, it instantly took our breath away, especially because we're used to smaller hotel rooms when we stay in New York City. This suite was massive—and so beautiful.
The suite had a separate living room with a gorgeous pull-out sofa, several chairs, a desk (where I did some writing, feeling very much like Carrie in Sex and the City!) and three very large windows, with a ledge I would sit on, overlooking the bustling, busy streets below. It was an absolutely stunning room—luxurious in every way.
Our beautiful master bedroom had built-in closets, a large window, and an oversized bathroom with a separate shower and soaking tub, with huge Italian marble countertops.
Our very posh suite was so lovely, we almost didn't want to venture outside. I was quite content looking out the window, listening to the busy streets below.
I loved the attention to detail in our room, right down to the drapes and paint colour on the walls of our suite. (If you're wondering, it's Sherwin-Williams Realist Beige, and yes, I am painting my bedroom walls the same colour now!)
The Omni Berkshire Place Hotel provided us with more than a suite to stay in during our trip to New York City—we were given an authentic New York City experience, one that made us feel like we were true residents of the city.
We were treated to some bubbly and chocolate covered strawberries on our first night, welcoming us to the hotel. It was the perfect way to start celebrating our weekend in NYC.
I'm already planning our next escape to New York, because I know the perfect place to stay. Without hesitation, the only place I'm staying when I'm in the Big Apple is the Omni Berkshire Place Hotel. It's luxury in the heart of all the action, with personalized service and attention to detail you won't find at bigger hotels in the area.
- Omni Sensational Kids program: Upon check-in, children receive a backpack filled with fun items like toys and books, and children also receive milk and cookies delivered to their room on the first night and can even borrow games, books, and toys to make their stay feel even more like home.
