This past week I’ve been traveling in Italy, and when the journey began, RecipeGirl and I stopped off in New York City for a quick night’s stay, and to visit some blogging friends.

We enjoyed our stay at The Court – A St. Giles Premier Hotel, located at 130 East 39th Street, New York City, in the middle of Murray Hill, only a few blocks from Grand Central Station. This location is on the east side, naturally closer to the airport.

We stayed in their beautiful sister hotel, The Tuscany, a few years ago, but The Court is a more budget-friendly hotel, (you can get rooms as low as $119/night), with large, clean, modern rooms. If you’re buzzing in and out of the city, and you want a convenient place to stay that is affordable, this is the place!

The Court is also in the perfect location, easy walking distance from The Empire State Building, Chrysler Tower, Bryant Park, the 9/11 Memorial, the Liberty Tower, Times Square and Central Park.

When we arrived, we took a cab to Central Park, to enjoy the blossoms and beautiful sunset.

The room

We stayed in a suite with a large private patio off the bedroom that overlooked The Empire State Building, with a separate living room space, wet bar, and large desk.

The bed was super comfortable, with premium sheets, great Wi-Fi, and very little street noise – a huge plus! Bathroom was superb as well.

We also enjoyed the fully stocked mini bar, with an assortment of snacks and beverages.

Where to eat in NYC

For dinner we walked to Quality Italian for a fabulous meal. Would totally recommend this restaurant, not too far from Central Park.

The next morning we met up with our friend Amie, from The Healthy Apple (who posts all gluten-free recipes on her site), who, by the way, has a brand new book out, Eating Clean. That’s us above, where we breezed in to Maison Kayser for a quick peek. I mean, the pastires are soooooo beautiful!

We dined for breakfast at the lovely Buvette, with tea and amazing food. The sundried tomatoes on my egg and toast were out of this world. The West Village is so charming, if you haven’t visited there.

Of course stopped off for treats at Magnolia Bakery, to try their Snicker’s Icebox Cake. Yumm-o!

For lunch we met up with our good friends Gina (Skinnytaste) and Andie (Andie Mitchell). Andie has a brand new book out that I posted about a few weeks ago (PJ’s Meatballs and Sauce), and Gina (who wrote The Skinnytaste Cookbook), has a new book out this fall. It’s going to be fabulous!

We met up at Ma Peche and filled the table with fantastic dish, one being their famous fried chicken served with fresh lime, and the other the Buns, like all Momofuku restaurants serve, and they were awesome!

Later that day, RecipeGirl and I headed to the airport, very excited for the next adventure, I must say!

Siamo sulla buona strada per l’Italia! (We’re on our way to Italy!)

Our night’s stay was sponsored by The Court, who graciously paid for our visit. But as always, all opinions are my own!

  1. Fun. My youngest and I and a friend of hers are hopefully traveling to NY next year for her 18th birthday/graduation present…she’s already been researching places to stay, etc..

  2. Loads of fun! We stayed at the Algonquin last summer and loved it.
