THE STAYCATIONERS: LANGHAM PLACE NEW YORK

There’s no place like home — especially when home comes in the form of an über-luxe pied-à-terre favored by Saudi royalty and businessmen with champagne taste. Soaring past the NYC skyline, the 57-story limestone tower that is Langham Place sits proudly on its Fifth Avenue perch in an air of chic, modern luxury second to none. THE STAYCATIONERS reveled in the lap of luxury for a night. Pass the champagne, darling. It’s about to get fancy.

THE SPOT: Langham Place | 400 Fifth Avenue
THE STATS: 214 residence-esque guest rooms and suites, one Michelin-starred restaurant, lounge, spa, and fitness centre
PERFECT FOR: Girls’ Night In: Opulent Edition

It’s not every day that we as New Yorkers enjoy the luxury of floor-to-ceiling windows in the comfort of the home setting, let alone a kitchen in which one can spread both arms without touching any walls. That’s what luxury is all about. Langham Place has the right idea, combining airy, zen-esque space with modern refined touches, all while maintaining the coziness of home and the feel of a five star hotel.

THE STAYCATIONERS — along with the stylist babes of Art + Autonomy — set up shop in a 27th floor suite, complete with a fully decked out kitchen, massive living room space with panoramic skyline views, a stunning king bedroom with a pillowy Duxiana bed, Pratesi linens, and more insane windowage. Moving right along to the marble-clad bathroom, featuring his-and-hers sinks and a bathtub fit for a very, very large king. Cue the salts (and the Popchips. Our STAYCATIONERS are serious fans of the new Crazy Hot variety, perfect for those who like a bit of heat. Bonus: these bad boys are gluten free and #nobread approved.)

Clearly the idea of a staycation is to spend the entire time in a bathrobe. That said, Langham Place’s Chuan Spa & Soul is the perfect place to fulfill such goals whilst making the most of the period between check-in and dinner– among plenty of others (albeit less robe-friendly) being that this bad boy is smack dab in the heart of Midtown. The spa is currently undergoing a makeover, so stay tuned for the reveal this fall.

It’s 10 o’clock. Do you know where your drink is? We do. Enter Measure, Langham Place New York’s sexy lounge hugging the corner of 36th Street at Fifth Avenue. Step one: grab a Notorious F.I.G. (wish we could take credit for that one) with Avua cachaça, fig, lime, cinnamon, and crème de cassis or a Pisco Inferno (nope, didn’t make that up either) with Pisco, Licor 43, red pepper agave, egg white, cayenne, and bitters. Step two: snag a table by the window and let the people-watching ensue. Bonus: the daily continental breakfast is BANGIN.
