Hudson Hotel, New York City
I know I am Flower: The Converted Bostonian, but I MUST share with all my fellow Bostonians how much fun I had in New York City on Saturday evening.
My friend and I went to The Hudson Hotel located on 58th Street in New York City. I was expecting a typical hotel and bar. Was I wrong or what! As soon as you walk in, you are greeted with an escalator that escorts you to the lobby of the hotel. The lobby itself is absolutely breathtaking. The brick walls are garnished with vines and a huge chandelier. I was already smitten, but that was just the lobby.
The lounge has lit up floors that stimulate an urge to strut yourself over and show everyone what you've got. The interior decorating is kind of crazy, in a good way. While I definitely felt like I was at an upscale hotel/lounge, I also sometimes felt like I was in a forest...or maybe that was the effect of the vodka-cran.
Not only was the place beautifully decorated but the ambience and energy was great. Everyone seemed to be in a dancing and socializing mood. The drinks were really, really strong - I am convinced I was roofied. JK, wait actually no, I very well may have been. LOL.
All in all, I will definitely hit the Hudson Hotel up next time I am in the city. It was an absolute pleasure and I felt nothing but stunning and fabulous. The drinks were good, place was beautiful, good music, and most importantly wonderful company. If I do end up moving to NYC, I already know this place will be in my top 5. I suggest to anyone visiting NYC or who live there already and have not been.
PS. It makes so much sense why this place is so aesthetically pleasing -it's owned by the Morgans Hotel Group! This group owns the Ames Hotel in downtown Boston - another favorite of mine. Enjoy the array of photographs that only capture a small essence of how beautiful the Hudson Hotel actually is in person. I had a marvelous time here, whatever I remember of it... CIAO! XOXO
