We found heaven in New York: The Four Seasons

Amidst the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, there is a sanctuary of elegance and sophistication. Of class and contemporary design. And it’s name is the Four Seasons Hotel.

We were thrilled to combine the excitement of our New York Fashion Week fun with a night’s stay provided by the Four Seasons and loved experiencing their impressive hotel.

Our favorite part of our stay? The attention to detail. Nothing is overlooked by the staff of this hotel. Upon returning from having a delicious raspberry martini at The Bar (complete with a mini cocktail shaker, silver platter, fresh raspberry garnish and dried cherries!) we came back to our room to find the lights turned down, curtains drawn, the TV turned towards the bed, a mat put down to take our shoes off and slide into cozy slippers and our favorite part? The soft classical music that was playing. If we weren’t ready to hit the town to take in New York as much as possible during our long weekend, this room would have been amazing to crawl into bed or take a long bath in the incredible tub. Le sigh!

Another highlight of the Four Seasons experience? The Garden wine bar. The Garden is actually a new setting in the grand lobby of the hotel and offers wonderful wine and champagne selections. If we lived in Manhattan, we would host a girls luncheon or wine night here in a New York minute.

We could not have loved our stay more. While rates can be high for us urban darlings, we would completely recommend splurging for a romantic weekend with your significant other here or booking a room with one or two of your girlfriends to have a totally fabulous and indulgent New York weekend.

Check out our photos to see some of the highlights!

The view we first saw when we walked in! Two walls full of windows overlooking an expansive New York below.

The rooms are the biggest of any hotel in New York. The difference between this and other places we’ve stayed is definitely apparent.

Heavenly, no?

Hello, gorgeous. What beauty gal wouldn’t love to pamper and get ready in this room?!

It’s the details that make the most of an experience. The Four Seasons leaves no detail overlooked.

Hello, heaven. This photo doesn’t do the incredible walk-in closet justice. We had to scrape our jaws off of the floor when we first saw it. Dear Four Seasons, we’d love to have one of these in our apartment, ok?

The Four Seasons Hotel New York is located at 57 East 57th Street between Park and Madison Avenues. Make a date with it! We promise you won’t be disappointed.

Virgin America goes golden with service to Fort Lauderdale

Virgin America goes golden with service to Fort Lauderdale

Oh the joys of PR…thanks to our day time job we joined our client, Virgin America on their inaugural flight from LAX to Fort Lauderdale this past week and mixed and mingled with celebs while working a party on the airport tarmac and an after party at the amazing W hotel. The launch celebrated the new service from both SFO & LAX to Fort Lauderdale for low fares and stylin’ ammenities.

We thought we’d share some of the fun pics from the day…enjoy!

We’ve been in love with Gilt Groupe since it launched so it is of no surprise that we’re super duper excited for their announcement of Jetsetter- the insider access pass for all fab ladies for luxury travel with members-only pricing.

Like Gilt, Jetsetter sales are live for a limited time of just 2 days, and the travel offers are sold on a first come, first served basis. Of course, the earlier you log in, the better the selection. Members of the Jetsetter team visit the properties they feature in order to provide first-hand information and insight, which is indicated by their “Jetsetter Verified” seal. Doesn’t sound like a half bad job to us!!

Keep in mind that while they are in beta, they’re still working out the kinks in the site.

Membership requires an invitation but if you’re a Gilt member you can use your existing Gilt login and password to get access to our amazing offers. If you need an invite to Gilt just e-mail us at witwhimsy@gmail.com and we’ll hook you up!
