If you’re ready to do a little holiday catch-up with your besties, make a beeline for Conrad New York Downtown. The lobby metamorphosed into a holiday forest of heavenly scented, decorated Virginia Spruce trees. Make your first stop ATRIO Barista Station in the lobby for a complimentary hot spiced apple cider (until Dec. 3) or hot chocolate (Dec. 22–24).
Book the Girlfriend Getaway and enjoy a sumptuous girl dinner in in your suite (pajamas and pearls optional), along with a $100 in-room dining credit. Fresh, local ingredients are featured in menu items, including dishes like octopus carpaccio with saffron aïoli, almond romesco and squid ink tuile; and russet potato white pie, made with gruyère, mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, basil pesto and Espelette pepper.
Add on the Goodnight Conrad option and enjoy dishing about your favorite Netflix celebs before dozing off in silk sleep masks to the sound of a natural white noise machine. Guests also receive an indulgent Byredo nighttime care kit and Scentered Sleep Therapy Balm. Don’t worry about staying up too late: You can sleep in the next morning thanks to a guaranteed 1 p.m. late check-out.
Holiday season guests have the option to add on a decorated tree to their suite booking, along with a delivery of milk and cookies. And on Dec. 23, 24 and 25, Santa himself will be on hand to bring greetings to guests in the hotel lobby.
Other special stays include Candle Garden Workshops, offered in partnership with The Candle Garden candle company. Pop-up classes in candle making are available to guests through Dec. 30, with expert guidance in the process of creating two 9-ounce soy candles in a choice of scents. Candles are ready to be taken home the next day. Check the hotel website for dates and availability of workshops, as well as specific times for Santa’s lobby visits.
After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
Don’t risk losing all the money you’ve spent if you must cancel your trip at the last minute. Allianz Travel Insurance can give you:
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
