Located in the Lower East Side, between Houston and Stanton Streets, the hotel offers 184 guest rooms, including 20 suites and can cost up to $2,000 one certain nights, but other rooms have fare, accessible prices,  so don’t worry! It sure is “the place to stay”.

With a cool décor that includes marble mosaic floors, handmade silk rugs, artisan-crafted Moroccan pendant lamps and huge industrial windows, the hotel offer every luxury you expect when you want to travel in style.

Their mini bar offers even gluten free options! How cool is this?!

A few of the amenities are: free wifi, concierge service, outdoor dining area, a fitness center, a fantastic rooftop with the most breathtaking view of the city and so much more!

Furthermore, be sure to check out their lounge area and garden, where you can chill and grab a drink.

And still, the Lower East Side is one of our favorite spots to explore in the city. There is always a few store, restaurant, bar, coffee shop or gallery opening, making it one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in Manhattan.

What to explore while you’re there? Well, that’s a very tough question, but here are a few ideas:

Restaurants, you can try: Souvlaki GR, a charming greek spot and Sweet Chick that also had a location in Williamsburg;

Fashion: We are in love with Vaute, the first full Vegan fashion brand! Simply fantastic.

Nightlife: Rockwood Music Hall is one of the coolest places to watch upcoming bands just vibe off each other and meet some of the most interesting kids in town; and Piano’s is also on the top of the list!

Yup, it’s “the place to stay” in town! Enjoy!

Jenna Rice: 10 Great NYC Tips From A NYC Blogger

Curiosities Insider Interviews Jenna Rice

The NYC Blogger, Jenna Rice, from the Blond Well Traveled, shared with us a mix’n’match of 10 great NYC tips! From restaurants, hotels and bagel spots, to upstate trips, art galleries and beauty salons.

Curiosities Insider Interviews Jenna Rice

Jenna Rice was born and raised in Florida, and currently lives in New York City.

She told us: “I followed my heart around the globe and landed in New York City.” Definitely a great place to land, right?!

She launched her passion project: a travel and lifestyle blog called Blonde Well Traveled, in 2015. Plus, she’s visited over 15 countries and doesn’t stop counting.

Since she moved to the “City that Never Sleeps”, she’s been sharing a glimpse into her experiences both within the city and beyond. All this, in addition to working full time in Public Relations.

Such a busy bee!

Take a look at her 10 favorite NYC spots and in nearby towns:


Brooklyn Flea

Curiosities Insider Interviews Jenna Rice Brooklyn Flea

“Brooklyn Flea is basically the cooler younger sister to Chelsea Market. There’s something for everyone, from vintage rings and designer bags to viney plants and eclectic home decor. Not to mention, they have some of the most popular food vendors from Smorgasburg minus the lines.”

We love Brooklyn! We’re Brooklyn-based and even though the Brooklyn Flea can get a bit touristy, we still love it!

In addition, you’ll find 75 vendors with everything from clothes and accessories, to furniture and jewelry, plus 25 food vendors with the most delicious dishes.

During the winter they have only one location and it happens during the weekends: Saturday + Sunday from 10am – 6pm – called Winter Flea + Smorgasburg.

Location: 1 Hanson Place, Fort Greene

Mile High Run Club

Curiosities Insider Interviews Jenna Rice Mil High Run Club

“Mile High Run Club is probably my favorite place to break a sweat in the City. It’s essentially a treadmill class with dimmed lighting, bumpin’ music and strobe lights…with a coach cheering you on through a series of intervals and hills. I recommend Dash 28 because it finishes with strength training utilizing kettle bells and core exercises.”

Do you like “the burn”? I mean, REALLY like it? Well, if your immediate answer was “YES!”, then this is the place for you!

Mile High Run Club’s running program is uniquely designed to challenge your body and get the best results you’d ever imagine. Go to one of their 2 locations to try it out.

Plus, they offer indoor and outdoor classes, with amazing coaches! We’re sure it’ll become your newest addiction!

Locations:
28 East 4th Street, NoHo
24 West 25th Street, NoMad

Heyday

Curiosities Insider Interviews Jenna Rice Heyday

“Heyday is easily one of my best NYC finds. My skin went nuts when I moved to the City in the heart of winter from Florida, and this place introduced me to several natural products that I now swear by.”

The weather in NYC can be pretty crazy and will test your skin to the limit!

And, summer can be burning hot, hot, hot, while the winter can be pretty damn harsh where we feel our skin will rip with the cold.

Yeah, we know, it sounds terrible, right?

Well, we are IN NEW YORK CITY of obviously that helps make it easier to accept, LOL.

HeyDay is a great place to go if you’re looking for the perfect facial, with a good price, at the time that’ll suit you best. Carly Heitlinger also loves it!

Harriman State Park

Curiosities Insider Interviews Jenna Rice Harriman State Park Kanawauke by Mwanner

“For those who need a breather from the City, Harriman State Park is your sanctuary. It’s just a quick train ride from the city and much less crowded than some of the other hiking spots like Breakneck and Bear Mountain.”

Harriman State Park is located in Rockland and Orange Counties, Upstate NY – a little over 1h drive from Manhattan. The drive is actually a very quick and surely a gorgeous car ride up there.

They have almost 52,000 acres of mostly forested landscape and over 23miles of hiking trails.

So, what are you waiting for? Go grab (or rent here) a car, and have fun!

And, more about them:

At 47,527 acres (192.33 km2), Harriman State Park is the second largest state park in New York. Located in Rockland and Orange counties 30 miles (48 km) north of New York City, it is a haven for hikers with over 200 miles (320 km) of hiking trails. The park is also known for its 31 lakes, multiple streams, public camping area, and great vistas.”

“The Jane is easily my favorite spot to go out in the City. It basically feels like you’re at a mansion party where your favorite songs are always playing and dancing on the furniture is encouraged. Every time I have a friend visiting, I take them there and they’re never disappointed.”

Yup! It’s one of our favorite spots too!

The Jane Hotel, is located in the West Village and is certainly a destination for the cool NYC crowd.

In addition, the hotel was launched in 1908 and has rooms that replicate luxury ship and train cabins. On the other hand, rooms are pretty small, but come on, “Who” comes to NYC to stay in the room, right!?

Location: 113 Jane Street, West Village

Rockwood Music Hall

Curiosities Insider Interviews Jenna Rice Rockwood Music Hall

“For an intimate live music experience, hit up Rockwood Music Hall. A friend introduced me to this venue and it was everything I could’ve hoped for. While there are shows that require cover, there is a smaller room to the left of the main entrance that is free of charge.”

Rockwood Music Hall is known for having hosted performances of great artists like Lady Gaga, Gary Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and Mumford & Sons.

It’s one our favorite spots to have a cool night out and listen to some of the best emerging NYC bands and musicians.

Plus, musicians from other nationalities are a big hit too, like Aline Muniz and André Vasconcellos.

They have 3 stages, full bars for all tastes, drinks aren’t so pricey, like expected in Manhattan. We love it, and we are there quite a lot!

Location: 196 Allen Street, Lower East Side

Black Seed Bagels

“After a night out, nothing compares to Black Seed Bagels. Option #11 always satisfies! Another favorite is Tompkins Square Bagels if you’re in the mood for trying out a new cream cheese flavor like birthday cake or one of their French toast bagels.”

Bagels! We just love Bagels!

And, New York’s bagels are said to be one of the best on this planet, since our water is so fantastically clean and tasty!

Black Seed Bagels is certainly one of the most famous in town. In addition, Tompkins Square Bagels’ are hand rolled, kettle boiled and baked over wood planks….yum!!!

Original Buddha Bodai is an incredible vegetarian spot in Chinatown. The food is delicious (you can’t even tell there’s no meat) and the atmosphere is so authentic. I highly recommend the sesame “chicken”.”

OMG! When our Founder, Fê Paronetto, went with a very good friend to Buddha Bodai, she became c-o-m-p-l-e-t-e-l-y addicted to it!

She’s vegetarian, but loves Vegan food too, and she couldn’t believe how amazingly tasty everything was!

The dumplings are to-die-for, but everything is remarkably good! But, it’s actually hard to know what exactly to order, so you might just have to go there multiple times to try it all.

“One of my favorite things to do on the weekend is pop into galleries in the LES and Chelsea. It’s a great alternative to hitting up a crowded museum, plus they’re completely free to enjoy: David Zwirner, Paul Kasmin, and Richard Taittinger are a few of my go-tos.”

David Zwirner

David Zwirner is one of the top contemporary art galleries, with another location overseas, in Mayfair, London. They currently have 2 great exhibitions: “Yun Hyong-keun” up through February 18th and “Drawn Together”, up through February 18th.

“The David Zwirner gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of large-scale paintings by Yun Hyong-keun (1928-2007) from the mid-1970s through the 1980s. The exhibition includes an unprecedented selection of paintings in the artist’s unique style of monochromatic abstraction, several of which are shown here for the first time. The exhibition marks the largest solo presentation of Yun’s work in North America to date.” ~ Read more here.

David Zwirner is pleased to present the gallery’s first exhibition of the collaborative work of Aline Kominsky-Crumb and R. Crumb. Both pioneers of underground and alternative comics, Kominsky-Crumb and Crumb have created a groundbreaking portrait of their shared lives and creative collaborations over the past four decades. In their ongoing “Aline & Bob” comics, the two artists have rendered their innermost thoughts, fears, and fantasies alongside the day-to-day realities of family life in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, each in their own distinctive style.” ~ Read more here.

Paul Kasmin Gallery

Paul Kasmin Gallery works and supports influential Modern and Contemporary artists. They are showcasing two exhibitions: NATURALIA” up through March 4th and “WILLIAM N. COPLEY: WOMEN”, up through March 25th.

Paul Kasmin Gallery and Sotheby’s Old Masters Department will present their first collaborative exhibition, Naturalia, curated by Danny Moynihan. The show will be comprised of works spanning six centuries which share a fundamental focus on the examination of natural science and its myriad presentations in art.” ~ Read more here.

COPLEY: WOMEN unites a selection of paintings that highlight the late artist’s preoccupation with the opposite sex, which he employed as an endless source for inventive figurative and narrative paintings that explored eroticism, sexual politics and the pursuit of pleasure. Originally defying painterly trends of the 1950s by making personal and narrative works, the self-taught artist developed a radical fusion of European Surrealist vernacular and a rogue, humorous American sensibility. Sex, eroticism and cultural critique were mainstays in Copley’s oeuvre of paintings that embraced idiosyncratic figuration, candy-colored palettes and Matisse-like decorative patterning.” ~ Read more here.

Richard Taittinger Gallery

Richard Taittinger Gallery works in Presenting works by contemporary artists with significant global recognition. Stop by their gallery, in the Lower East Side, to see their current exhibition: “The Wsanderers: Contemporary Painting From CLUJ”. It will be on through February 19th.

For this exhibition, the curator has endeavored to make visible that, beyond the ascribed label of the Cluj School by way of international media, there is much more to be explored when considering this group of artists. Therefore, this multigenerational exhibition tracks a shared dialogue between masters and students in order to define certain Romanian traditions. Traditions, that has within the last decade, projected the painters of Cluj-Napoca, into the limelight, astounding the international art world.” ~ Read more here.

Lastly, to wrap up this great interview and a beautiful selection of hot spots in New York, we asked Jenna:

What does NYC mean to you?

“I could honestly answer this question so many ways, but I think NYC means being able to wake up each morning with every possibility in the world at your feet.

There is always something to do, someone to meet, something to see. To me, personally, it means perseverance. The people who live here are tough. For the most part, we all struggled in some way to get here, and continue to struggle now that we’re here. But somehow, it’s all worth it.

There’s no place in the world that can offer up this kind of experience to a person.”


Thank you Jenna for being part of our Insider Interviews and sharing these 10 great NYC tips.

The OutNYC was rebranded and now, it’s called Cachet Boutique Hotel NYC. If you’re curious, The New York Times explains what happened to the former hotel.


Discover a home away from home in one of the at this urban resort, that hosts a total of 101 contemporary guest rooms. Guests gain access to their unique outdoor spaces, expertly curated art collection, and comprehensive amenities. The place is really something!

At their new restaurant (opening soon!), Eden on 42nd, Chef David Laris delivers a menu created with locally-sourced dishes, hence the produce comes from trusted local farmer and their meat is hormone and antibiotic free. Their cocktail list is also great, therefore you’ll surely have a great time trying their diverse options. The space is great and has not only communal and private tables, but also a sidewalk, perfect for sightseeing. Definitely recommended in NYC!

In addition, relax your mind and elevate your senses at The Spa – a 5,000 square foot wellness center – where their team of expert masseurs, facialists and personal trainers deliver outstanding results. The space has a backdrop of a glass 23-foot high glass atrium, a cascading waterfall and private year-round cabanas. You can be sure to expect a wide variety of treatments.

As we mentioned, the hotel is surely a beautiful urban resort hosted in the heart of Manhattan.

The location is pretty good and relatively central, in the neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen – easy to get to multiple spots in the city. The closest station (A/C/E – blue line) is just 2 blocks away, inside Port Authority Bus Terminal.

Here are a few spots you can visit close by:

a gorgeous rooftop bar called Press Lounge, the Fountain House Gallery that hosts great art installations and a delicious Middle Eastern cuisine restaurant called Hummus Kitchen.

Finally, don’t forget to walk a few blocks to the Hudson River side to witness one of the greatest sunsets and New Jersey views.

Enjoy NYC!

The beautiful $18 million dollar renovation of HGU New York, marries both style and substance. The hotel definitely stands as crown jewel to the Park/Madison area.

Preserving the history of the 1905 landmark Beaux-Arts structure, designed by architect Frederick C. Browne, Alfa Development collaborated with hospitality designer Peter Guzy (of Asfour Guzy Architects) as well as DD Allen (of Pierce Allen Design) to ensure all spaces are both comfortable and chic.

Furthermore, Gallery 151 provided the curated art throughout the hotel featuring New York’s emerging artists among icons such as Fab 5 Freddy and Liz Markus. The walls are bursting with artwork accented with large, ornate flower arrangements that create an atmosphere unique to HGU New York.

Establishing a home-away-from-home experience, each of the 90 guest rooms is decorated with serene grey and white décor. Also, you’ll find 300-thread count Frette bedding, bath and beauty products from New York’s own C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries.

Also, the pillows deserve a special mention – they are incredible. Varying in firmness with white goose down and feather fill, the hotel provides guests with options to complement their sleep.

The 1905 Lounge is complete with a fireplace from the building’s original structure.

A large TV is masked behind a mirror, not competing with the décor. Eventually, it will serve as the perfect place for film screenings as well as meetings and intimate events.

In October 2016, the hotel’s restaurant opened and now provides room service. Plus, in 2017, guests will enjoy the city’s night lights when the rooftop inaugurates.

Lastly, there is so much to do in the City, that is can be pretty overwhelming, so do contact us to learn more about our Concierge Services. We will make your trip to NYC a perfect, seamless experience! Do you need help organizing your company’s business trip? Look at the Corporate Services we offer and how we can help.

For fun or business at NoMad NYC: Innside New York

For reference, the “North of Madison” (a.k.a. NoMad) area is contained to East 25th Street to the South, East 29th Street to the North, Sixth Avenue (Avenue of the Americas) to the West and Madison Avenue to the East.

The Nomad area is bursting full of new boutiques, restaurants and hotels including the INNSIDE New York, which opened in March 2016. Meliá Hotels International, one of the largest hotel companies in the world, opened INNSIDE New York as their first INNSIDE by Meliá brand hotel in North America.

To start, the 313 room (eight suites and three terrace suites) hotel, serves the business traveller and discerning tourist who wants subtle solitude. That, combined with central convenience of being able to head Downtown and Midtown with ease.

Also, guests are treated to a complimentary minibar stocked with water, soda and juices and standard complimentary Wi-Fi access. My favorite part of the hotel room was the large oversized window that overlooked the city’s water towers. In the distance, the beauty of the One World Trade Center.

While there is a Nepresso coffee machine in each room, you need to pass and try out the signature restaurant. Impero Caffè is helmed by the celebrity chef, Scott Conant.

Guests can grab Italian coffeehouse fair before starting their day and host lunch/dinner engagements later in the day.

The lobby bar which seating spills out on the outside (heated) patio, serves old-fashioned drinks and seasonal hand-crafted cocktails. In addition, a good selection of local draft and bottled beers, wine, champagne and spirits.

Staying for business? This is a great option to consider.

INNSIDE New York features two meetings suites that are equipped with Smart Kapp. This program has modernized the experience of a dry erase board. It allow meeting participants to receive content as it’s created on the board across multiple devices.

They can also connect to a laptop or mobile phone via Bluetooth. This allows guests to upload images directly from their device to the board.

Finally, the rates start at $146 (depending on the season), but are very reasonable. As we said, it’s a great hotel for fun or for business, in the Nomad area.

To relax after a full day and get some down time, visit our friends at City Wellness Collective, just around the corner from the hotel. You may also go for a delicious gastronomical experience at By Chloe.

Escaping NYC: Exploring Narrowsburg In Upstate NY With Juliette Hermant

Insider Interviews Juliette Hermant Narrowsburg By Julie Holder Powell

Upstate NY is gorgeous. Juliette Hermant, Founder of Maison Bergogne, gave us a full itinerary so you can visit and enjoy a long weekend in Narrowsburg!

Insider Interviews Juliette Hermant Narrowsburg By Julie Holder Powell

Upstate NY is so beautiful and most visitors and even New Yorkers don’t know about the amazing people and places they can find.

Our Founder, Fernanda Paronetto, fell in love with Maison Bergogne, an antique, décor and design services shop in Narrowsburg, upstate New York. So, she decided to interview Juliette Hermant, the owner.

To start, Juliette Hermant is a painter, photographer and interior designer, who moved to the U.S. from Paris in 2007. She lived in Los Angeles working as an artist. Then, moved to the East Coast in search of a stronger sense of community.

Juliette didn’t really find it in Williamsburg (where she lived). Her strong, buzzing energy left her yearning for a different life. She wanted a place she could do meaningful work that was needed while feeling grounded in nature.

So, in 2012, she ended up in Narrowsburg, a historic Catskills hamlet perfectly situated along the Delaware River, just across the bridge from Pennsylvania.

There is a long history of artists in the town. So, it seemed full of potential to her.

Juliette acquired a beautiful brick 1920’s industrial building that had been boarded up and breathed new life into it, opening Maison Bergogne. She filled this emporium with antiques and vintage pieces, 90% of which are local to the Catskills, and offered her interior design services to local homeowners and businesses in partnership with Anie Stanley of Woolheater Wares.

She also set about engaging with the community to work on revitalizing the area. Moreover, this included developing a community garden and tending beehives on her rooftop. Over the years, she has become very invested in enhancing the town through initiatives with the Narrowsburg Beautification Group and Main Street Merchants.

Juliette’s interest in permaculture has crystallized through her latest venture Fish & Bicycle. Foodies and makers collaborate with her desire to serve the Catskill’s bountiful flavors through local feasts, while also passing on skills and knowledge.  

Sharing flavors create bonds between people, which works to foster a sense of stable, collaborative community. Join them for a leap in the Catskills through their one-of-a-kind events & workshops and get a bite of their terroir cuisine with Fish & Bicycle’s catering services.
Fish & Bicycle Apiaries now offers the opportunity to join a honey-share, where your contribution supports permaculture ethics and edible pollinator’s friendly-gardens around her small town, as well as Juliette’s nearby Monarch butterfly nursery.
Launch date is still to be announced, so stay tuned!

Below are Juliette’s top tips in Narrowsburg and surroundings. It’ll be of great help to plan your Day-Trip or Weekend-Trip:


Part of Narrowsburg’s charm is its ideal location, perched above the picturesque “Big Eddy” of the Delaware River. Wild flora and fauna abound, including white-tailed deer, bald eagles and black bear. Lately, there has been an influx of New York City transplants and visitors to the area. In addition, new businesses are springing up.

The most beautiful approach to the town is along Route 97, a scenic byway that runs along the river. And, the nearest bus and train stations are more than half an hour away – in Monticello and Port Jervis, respectively. So, coming up by car is a good idea. (You can rent your car through our Concierge Services).

“In addition to his day job as Editor of Out Magazine, Aaron Hicklin runs a bookshop named One Grand Books, on Main Street.

He asked his glamorous circle of friends and acquaintances (including Tilda Swinton, Jay McInerney and Marianne Faithful) to name the 10 books they’d take with them if they were marooned on a desert island and has stocked the shop accordingly. Plus, occasionally, local authors have readings there.”

Le Petite Cabine

Insider-Interviews-Juliette-Hermant-Narrowsburg-Le-Petite-Cabine

If you need time away from the city and want to be immersed in nature, this is surely what you’re looking for.

“Just a 5-minutes drive from town, this rustic 1950 timber-frame cabin delivers quiet seclusion in nature. Le Petite Cabine boasts private frontage on the bucolic Ten Mile River.

A clawfoot bathtub and an outdoor shower and a fireplace made of blue stone. In addition, plenty of old-fashioned in-the-mountains charm, thanks in large part to the artful styling of Maison Bergogne and Woolheater Ware’s collaboration.

You can also inquire about rental, time-share options and the nearby queer-friendly artists’ retreat with Smokey Belles.

“With their special brand of tongue-in-cheek humor, set designer Roswell Hamrick and his partner, fashion maven Johnny Pizzolatto, bring loads of style and character to this delightful Stickett Inn.

Plus, it’s located just 20 minutes South, in Barryville. From the little shack in front that functions as kind of lobby—think Intelligenstia coffee, Malin & Goetz candles and locally made treats — to the themed rooms, outdoor hot tub and fire pits, it offers fun and relaxation in equal measure.”

Prices range from $150-$245.

“This mini chain of eateries, Ba and Me, is a great example of the new fast-casual: delicious, healthy and totally addictive. Owner Nhi Mundy saw a real need for ethnic food in the area and opened up two Vietnamese cafes.

The first, in Callicoon (about 15 minutes north of Narrowsburg), is a glorified takeout window. The second, for which Maison Bergogne and Woolheater Wares collaborated on the décor, is over the bridge in Honesdale, PA. And, they also offer indoor seating. Don’t miss the summer rolls!”

New York City has infinite hotel options and it can be quite overwhelming.

Dream Hotel Downtown was the last hotel opening of Dream Hotels! Located in Chelsea, the hotel offers 315 loft-style rooms with all the amenities you can possibly think of. From high-speed WiFi to custom Etro toiletries and 350-thread-count Egyptian cotton bed linens.

Furthermore, if you enjoy the nightlife, the hotels hosts one of the coolest clubs in town named Electric Room. Since you like to party…this is a perfect spot, since it’s opened ’till 4am!

And still, it also offers a couple great dining options like the Mexican restaurant Bodega Negra with a fantastic menu created by Chef Michael Armstrong. Megu has a fine modern Japanese cuisine by Executive Chef Frances Tariga-Weshnak and The Beach bar and grill offers great cocktails and small, light bites right beside the pool.

Finally, The Guesthouse is a great option for a private gathering with friends. This luxurious duplex penthouse comes with it all – security guard, sneaker stylist, personal barista, a jacuzzi and a spacious garden terrace! The place will definitely “wow” your guests!

Dream Hotel is located close the some of the best spots in town. You’ll be walking distance from Union Square, several Chelsea hype art galleries, the famous (and touristy) High Line and other neighborhoods such as SoHo, West Village, the Garment District and Gramercy Park.

Certainly, it’s a great hotel for leisure, but also for a business travel, since it’s close to several important companies’ HQ!

Stay tuned because Dream Hotel will soon open 2 new locations.

This time, in Long Island City and Time Square – that we personally don’t really enjoy. But, it’s surely a super central location if you want to feel a little of New York City’s bustling energy.

And still…

If you’re looking for ideas on what to do close by, try these!

Explore the super iconic Empire Diner that reopened last November, the hidden bar under the Chelsea Market called The Tippler, the unique theatrical experience Sleep No More perfect for a night out and Bathtub Gin – a the speakeasy secret bar.
