It's within the cast-iron accommodations of the Duane Street Hotel where quintessential city activities are just a New York-minute away; think quiet cocktail bars, pop-up boutiques, intimate art exhibitions and Michelin-starred eats. With weekenders ...

THE STAYCATIONERS x BROOKLINEN: Sleighcation Sunday at Bar Fortuna

'Twas the night before everyone had to go to work in the morning, and all through the clandestine cocktail bar above Casa Apicii, there were creatures a-stirring giant pots of spiced boozy concoctions for pajama-clad partygoers. The verdict - a sleighcation of epic, festive proportions. There was a live photobooth. There were Vestment robes.

THE STAYCATIONERS CHICAGO: AMBASSADOR CHICAGO

If walls could talk, this historically-significant hotel would reminisce about the days that Frank Sinatra walked its hallways, the nights that Elizabeth Taylor lounged on its beds, and the times Marilyn Monroe fixed her iconic lipstick in its powder room. But, alas, the walls are good at keeping secrets. The STAYCATIONERS, however, always slay and tell—and there’s plenty to divulge about the Ambassador Chicago. To pay homage to the beauty of ...

THE STAYCATIONERS FL: The Diplomat

The term "diplomat" carries plenty of meaning: important international affairs, super short airport customs lines, and being generally skilled at carrying oneself in everyday situations. While Hollywood's new crown jewel requires neither lengthy political conversation nor passport control, its moniker is apropos given its stately status and air of refinement. After all, we'd expect nothing less from a cool $100M renovation. Without further ado, THE STAYCATIONERS present a candy and ...

THE STAYCATIONERS Chicago: The Gwen

Glamour, art, and culture—an entire weekend dedicated to just that, spent inside of a place that lives by those rules exactly.
