Stay, Eat, & Do - The NYC Summer Getaway Guide




The Trendy (Yet) Touristy Traveler 

Dream Downtown  |  CHELSEA  

Why: This super swanky hotel has a sexy rooftop pool worth diving into (you'll understand that reference more after checking in) Not to mention it's surrounded by some pretty great spots too...Chelsea Market for lunch anyone? 


The Fashion Blogger / Shopaholic Traveler 

Nomo Soho  |  SOHO  

Why: Nomo is in a great location for those that like to shop during their visit to the city. The trendy hotel is close to Broadway, China Town, and Little Italy. So Nomo, "I have nothing to wear" ladies!


The Cool Traveler 

The Standard, High Line  |  MEATPACKING / WEST VILLAGE  

Why: The Top of The Standard rooftop has one of the best views of the city. If you're looking to mostly hangout in the Meatpacking District and be surrounded by an attractive crowd during your visit, then day drink on the roof and head to The Boom Boom Room later that night.
