“Congratulations”, he said as he threw over the keys to our new apartment. “You now have a home in New York City”.
We didn’t care that we were only in the city for a total of 72 hours – we had 3 days to experience New York, and, come hell or high water, we were going to experience an authentic NYC lifestyle! This meant finding a hip and stylish apartment to call home in a trendy NYC neighbourhood.
Sound difficult? Surprisingly it wasn’t!
The answer to finding a boutique apartment in a great location in New York City is MySuites.
A small set of boutique suites splashed across the most sought after locations in New York, MySuites caters to those who care about traveling in style and luxury, and choose to base themselves in hip locations close to understated hotspots. Each apartment is absolutely unique, and features one of a kind design pieces by hip upcoming Brooklyn designers. And we absolutely fell in love with our apartment for this reason.
There is no better way to describe our apartment than to use the words of the designer himself – it was a “patchwork of design”. Vibrant murals covered the beautiful white walls, trendy artwork hung from the halls, and pop culture quotes were placed throughout each room.
It was hip, edgy, stylish and classy; it was everything I imagined an authentic NYC lifestyle would be, but with an added a twist of luxury.
Our stay with MySuites was truly unparalleled from traditional luxury hotels. After having been on the road for so long, we took incredible pleasure in the comfort of a full service apartment.
We made full use of our fully equipped kitchen, and loved that the layout of the suite (“The Standard Deluxe“) allowed for a living and dining area as well as a workstation for my insane blogging/computer addiction (free wifi also included).
Space is normally in high demand in a city like New York, however the open floor plan of the loft apartment allowed us to truly sprawl out and settle in comfortably. Our bedroom was separated from the main living area in a loft upstairs. Once again, cutting edge design and fantastic use of lighting and space – the bedroom was gorgeous.
One step outside and we found ourselves in the trendy MeatPacking district, within walking distance from both the subway station and some of the best bars and nightlife in town.
As navigationally challenged as I am, somehow I managed to easily make my way to the subway and found myself at the Staten Island Ferry within 10 minutes. The next morning I was at Times Square for a New York TV & Movies Sites tour within another 10. I couldn’t have asked for a better location.
For three days we lived out our fantasy of living like a local in New York. When we head back we’ll be sleeping with MySuites.
Have you slept with them yet?!
