Ahh, Park Avenue South. There’s no place quite like it in New York: a polarizing frenzy of faceless commercial buildings, essential restaurants, and a sea of suits together set the scene for one looming respite on the corner of 29th Street, where guests make like true Manhattanites and lounge poolside stories above the madness. In short, the perfect location to round up ten professional STAYCATIONERS for the littest pool party of all time. Carry on.
THE SPOT: Gansevoort Park Avenue | 420 Park Avenue South
THE STATS: 249 rooms and suites, three-story atrium lobby ideal for Instagram lighting, rooftop pool/bar/sundeck situation, ground floor Italian restaurant, Cutler Salon, Exhale Fitness + Spa, Flywheel studio, Juice Press, pet-friendly vibes and programming
PERFECT FOR: Rooftop-centric staycationing with a crowd (yes, it’s open year-round)
You can’t exactly host a mass slumber party without a good facialist, makeup artist, and hair stylist (unless you’re an amateur). With the sunshine in full effect, the crew set up shop by the pool for some serious pampering and beautifying courtesy of LINNÉ Botanicals, Cutler’s Karla Serrano on hair duty, and Jenn Dockendorf manning the makeup chair. #squadgoals
Armed with cocktails, lipstick, and serious resort aesthetics, THE STAYCATIONERS took over the pool for basically the entire day before retiring to their suite for quality bathrobe time. Let there be floats. And cocktail pitchers. And endless snacks.
Shoutout to Lively, Tommy Hilfiger, Rhode Resort, WRAY, and Winky Lux for the LeWkS.
Next look: bathrobe chic. If you thought you couldn’t fit 10 ~influencers~ on a bed, then you were wrong. With a few more outfits left in the closet, half of the crew took advantage for a balcony photo opp while the other half napped. That sun sure is exhausting — if you need us, we’ll be dreaming of plotting our 2018 pool party schedule.
Keep up with THE STAYCATIONERS as they take over new hotels in new cities each month. This round made possible by Gansevoort Hotels, Cutler, LINNÉ Botanicals, Jenn Dockendorf, Tommy Hilfiger, Lively, Rhode Resort, Wray, Juice Press, and Winky Lux.
Special thanks to our guest staycationers:
