Staycationing With Arlo Hotels

Monday, October 31, 2016

Only since making friends with fellow working girl influencers did I start hearing about staycations. I've quickly learned that once we trade college for career, it becomes too easy to get wrapped up in the stresses of everyday life. While the idea of spending a weekend just a few miles away from home may sound less appealing than traveling abroad, the benefits are significant.

Victor and I spent Halloweekend at Arlo Hudson Square, a newer addition to the New York City hotel scene that blends efficiency with design. Despite being just a subway ride away from my apartment, it was the retreat we needed after a busy week. There is something refreshing about changing up your daily surroundings regardless of the distance. Amidst the chic, studious atmosphere of Arlo, we were nothing but relaxed. New York almost felt like a separate city from the one we scramble through from Monday to Friday.

Scroll on for highlights from my favorite corners of Arlo Hudson Square.

Space efficiency is the name of the game in urban hotels. Arlo does it best with these cozy nooks.

There is plenty of space for studying and lounging on the main floor. I loved this small stretch of hallway seating that encourages daily reading in the most stylish way.

At the end of Arlo's main hallway is Harold's Meat + Three, where we dined for breakfast every morning. Aside from delicious food, the decor offers a colorful welcome to each morning.

On the eleventh floor is Arlo's rooftop bar, offering weekday happy hours and scenic city views. We were lucky to have warmer days this weekend and spent some time lounging out in the fresh air.

Thank you to Arlo Hotels for sponsoring my visit. All opinions are my own.

  14. The star rating is by all account not the only thing which recognizes a lavish lodging from different inns. Frequently an inn will be viewed as a lavish inn if the rating is no less than four, and there are other one of a kind things about the lavish inn, for example, a specific concentration or extraordinary advantages that are not normal to different inns that are not thought to be in the lavish lodging class.

  15. One can enjoy complete tranquility in these hotels without any intervention. These hotels, however, haven't overlooked the business travelers who might check into these hotels for both business and fun.

  16. The city has something to offer every visitor, ranging from pubs, museums, shopping malls, to its rich culture and heritage. Amsterdam has a great list of hotels ranging from mere breakfast and bed motels to five star hotels.Kingsford Waterbay Layouts
