We're attending an advanced screening of Sex and the City on Wednesday night thanks to Coty Prestige and Sarah Jessica Parker's new frangrance, SJP NYC. To make it a true girls' night out, we invited a couple of our besties to join us to make our own foursome. Next the usual planning ensued: what to wear, where to eat, and where to stay.
We chose the Carlton Hotel, a Preferred Hotel and Resort, in the Madison Square Park district of Midtown. The Carlton has a long history, known early last century as the Seville Hotel. The lobby is grand:
It has been updated but keeps its Beaux Art charm, from the rediscovered Tiffany skylight (below) which had been painted over to camouflage the hotel from WWII air raids to the vintage bar that Frank Sinatra frequented when he was in town.
The rooms are stylish and comfortable:
Check back soon for a review of our stay at the Carlton.
