Located on W 55th just a stones throw from Central Park and just a 5 minute walk to Times Square; this hotel couldn't be anymore convenient if it tried! Situated close to 5th Ave, Museum of Modern Art and a subway station just one block away - this hotel really does have it all! Let's take a closer look at why I think the Pesthouse just *might be the chicest hotel in New York City!...
Where? 201 W 55th St, New York, NY 10019
Checking in: The hotel lobby for me is what sells this hotel as uber-chic, from the huge world map print, gold draped curtains, stacks of books, globes dotted around and an array of old keys displayed behind the check in desk - this hotel really does have the 'Wow-welcome'. I was really woo-ed on first impressions and couldn't wait to get to the room and check out the luxe decor! I have to say that the staff were just so incredible; they offered me so much advice on the best bars, closest subway stations and gave me a map for to help with the remainder of my trip in the Big Apple!
The room: As I mentioned I was bowled over by the lobby/lounge but oh my god the rooms were B-E-A-utiful (Bruce Almighty anyone?!), from the EPIC view of Manhattan, to the full marble bathroom (hello bloggers dream!), and the luxe toiletries and king sized bed - this place was honestly the dream! During my stay I had the pleasure of enjoying a Luxury King Room; complete with glass front rain showers, bespoke Danya Decker bath and body products and a 46" HD television!
The bar/lounge: The Den had to be my favourite part of the Westhouse; it was a luxe lounge/bar that was SO divine! With it's crystal chandeliers and antique fireplace; The Den was a dreamy destination to relax! During the late afternoon/evening I'd take my book down there and enjoy a glass of rose or cheeky cocktail; it was the perfect place to unwind or catch up with friends - the ambience was just everything you want and more!
I still stand by the statement that the hotel is the chicest in New York City (that I've seen/stayed in anyway), I adore the hotel and would highly recommend it for your stay; from the perfect location; luxe decor and incredible service - this hotel needs to be on your bucket list when visiting New York!
Have you stayed at the Westhouse before? Is this somewhere you'd like to stay? Do you have any plans to visit New York this year or in the near future?
*A HUGE thank you to the Westhouse for helping with accommodation during my stay!
