Roses are red, our entire wardrobe is black, the boys crashed this staycation and we never looked back. THE STAYCATIONERS stocked up on the ultimate baecation essentials in honor of V-Day courtesy of Ode à la Rose flower delivery service, Perrier Jouët, Snowe, and Todd Snyder, serving romantic realness in the comfort of the Smyth’s sexiest suite – snow-capped balcony and all.
THE SPOT: Smyth, a Thompson Hotel | 85 West Broadway
PERFECT FOR: A Valentine’s Day staycay fit for a king and his queen
(We couldn’t help ourselves). Our Brads suited up in their Todd Snyder threads while las Angelinas (Angelinae?) got their glam on with our girl Elena Miglino on makeup duty and Andrita killing the hair game. #beachwavenation
Flowers are a given on the most romantic day of the year. Don’t say we didn’t remind you. We’ll up the ante with a special offer from the Smyth and Ode à la Rose, featuring two nights in a Studio King or higher, a bouquet of roses, a bottle of champagne, and daily breakfast for two at Carmellini’s Little Park – all yours with code “sweetie.” Opting for just the bouquet? Head to Ode à la Rose and enter code “staycationers” at checkout for 10% off your entire order. Ah, the suite life.
In case you live under a dismally decorated rock, Snowe’s the hottest thing to happen to home goods since chic humidifiers. THE STAYCATIONERS couples reveled in the glory of plush Snowe bathrobes and aptly named Staycation candles (juniper twig, tonka bean, and cardamom FTW) while sipping from both Snowe’s own and PJ’s fancy flutes. After all, you can’t just put Belle Époque in any old peasant glass. Stock up here.
No staycation is complete without a bubble bath, and no bubble bath is complete without a glass of bubbly. THE STAYCATIONERS poured themselves a splish splash of Perrier Jouët’s finest (oh, how Belle Époque rolls off the tongue) and hopped in the tub amid scarlet petals and the soft glow of wicks alight.
The clock struck cocktail hour and our baecationers were downward bound, slipping behind the lobby for a low-key nightcap and bite from Carmellini’s kitchen.
Ah, the dulcet tones of glasses clinking and shakers a-shaking. Here’s to a Valentine’s Day done right.
Keep up with THE STAYCATIONERS as they take over a new hotel each month. This round made possible by the Smyth, Perrier Jouët, Ode à la Rose, Snowe Home, Todd Snyder, Jil Sander, and Little Park/Evening Bar. Huge thanks to Andrita Renee on hair patrol, Elena Miglino on beauty duty, and Aliana Galán, lioness of pop-up architects Lion’esque Group.
