Am spending a few days in New York to see friends and celebrate a friends’ recent marriage. I still marvel the fact that you can leave your house at 6 pm and wake up in another continent. May in New York is a perfect time to visit – warm enough to walk around without a jacket but not stifling. We are staying at the marlton hotel , small boutique style, right in Greenwich village; the rooms are very small, but of high quality and simple decoration – the communal parts of the hotel make up for the size of the bedrooms and offer lots of sitting areas. another new hotel is the broome – again smallish rooms, but centred around a patio.
When we took the kids a few years ago, we stayed at a boutique style hotel ‘60Thompson’, which was perfectly situated in downtown Soho, its now renamed sixty soho. The rooms were a good size and the service was both friendly and polite. they were also lovely to the kids and breakfast was also great!
love this wall display – made out of cans of beers!
