Thinking about heading to New York soon? For the ultimate bolthole look no further than Refinery Hotel.
The location is perfect. Uptown just off 5th Avenue, department store Lord and Taylor is at the end of the street (the shoe and handbag floors are not to be missed) and all of the big name stores are just a stroll away.
Once you are shopped out, Refinery becomes a haven for relaxation and downtime. Providing a homely setting, from lighting that makes you want to curl up on the sofa with a nice glass of wine to a magical rooftop with breathtaking views of the Empire State Building. It's pretty tempting not to leave this hotel at all on a NYC visit.
A warm welcome goes a long way, and what better combination than wine and cupcakes?
Be sure to stop by Magnolia Bakery, this was my second taste, and they are definitely still the best cupcakes in town.
