I have been looking forward to my stay in New York for months. I decided to splurge and had booked into a four star hotel in the Theatre District.
There's always that nervous moment when you arrive at your hotel. You've been given your room key and as you slide it into the lock and open the door, to inhale slightly hoping you like what you see on the other side of the door.
I LOVE my room. I have a king sized bed with two pillows, cable TV, a bath tub, iron, hair dryer, a proper sized towel (actually 4 proper sized towels) and all the other standard amenities. There's nothing here that's better than what you would expect for a hotel of this class, but since I've been in hostels for over three months, I am in pure heaven. A room to myself, no waiting for the bathroom, no snoring roommates to ruin my sleep.
I have been looking forward to the next five days for weeks : meals at Per Se, Eleven Madison Park, Momofuku, tickets to four Broadway shows and a visit to one of my favourite cities in the entire world. This is gonna be good.........
