Splurge: Just One Night New York
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple and book a night at the Langham Place on Fifth Avenue. Even the smallest room (420 square feet) has a sense of space, something of a luxury in NYC. And luxury goes beyond here: it’s the luxury of flexible check-in/check-out times, a bellhop who explains how all the fixtures work, a Nespresso coffee maker, Measure (the main-floor lounge with street views and a perfect small-plates menu to satiate while waiting for your room to be ready) – and live jazz till 11 p.m. for that much-comforting night cap – and walking distance to the Empire State Building, Times Square and Grand Central Station. And, if you’re travelling with a friend, the hotel has a few rooms with twin beds, so there’s no sharing a queen-size with a pillow jammed between you. Now, that’s luxury.
