Element Times Square

Sometimes a girl just needs a weekend away from it all. A change in scenery to get a little r&r and a fresh new environment to get some work done. The winter slump, given the number of snowstorms we’ve been getting here, really motivated me to find a local hotel deal. As luck would have it, I ended up booking a room at the Element New York Times Square West.

I love the fact that they have a complimentary breakfast buffet (which I brought up to the room) and wifi access (something I think all hotels should have). The beds are heavenly — signature of the Westin brand. I could cocoon myself in there all day. The Element hotels are part Westin’s eco-friendly initiatives.

Say hello to my MCM keychain charm, newly added to the Pashli bag.

The weekend away from home gave us a chance to just walk around and discover new places.

Our view from the room’s window and the Empire State Building.

…and the evening view.

Flowers to pretty the place up.

Desk and entertainment area.

Having a kitchenette was all sorts of perfect for a cozy home away from home experience. Fully equipped!

A look inside the modern and minimal bathroom. Love waterfall showers!

Last, but not least, the view from the rooftop lounge. Hi, New York ;)
