New York Day 2: Wine & Cheese Hour + Stay @ Hotel Giraffe

One of my favorite parts about staying with the Library Collection Hotels is that every night they serve a bouquet of complimentary wines, cheese, & hors d'oeurves. Their displays are elegant, their hospitality is generous and warm, and something about that combination makes you feel at home. I put on a new dress, asked my dad to join me, and had a beautiful time sipping on champagne and feeling welcomed in this beautiful city. 

When I arrived earlier that evening, Chris, one of the lobby receptionists offered me a complimentary upgrade to the balcony suite and hand delivered chocolates and a welcome note to my new room. That balcony was enchanting. It filled the room with the warm late afternoon sun and all of its golden color. All I wanted to do was put one of their robes on and watch the city pass by me down below. It's a view and a memory I hope to keep with me as I go. :)
