New York Magazine addressed the trend of NYC hotels that have seen-and-be-seen clubs, a la The Standard, the Gansevoort and more. We’ve long been a fan of these types one-stop hotels for girls’ trips. Yes, it can seem unadventurous to eat, party and sleep all in the same building, but it makes life so much easier when you’re with a group, though you certainly have to be in the right hotel.
On our last trip to Miami, we stayed at the W South Beach. We hit Wall at the hotel two of the nights we were there. Not only was it the place to be back in March, it also made it easy when two of us wanted to go to bed earlier than the other two. There was no expensive cab ride, no worrying if our friends were going to be able to find their way home. It was the perfect mix of safe fun.
