The Kimberly Hotel, a Gem in the Heart of New York City

On a recent trip to New York City, we had the pleasure of staying at the Kimberly Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Manhattan.  It has recently made Conde Nast Traveler’s Gold List 2013. I’ve always preferred boutique over large corporate chain hotels because I love to appreciate the beauty and character in the details. The details at the Kimberly hotel were all about European flair, lucky me.  The “Upstairs” rooftop was an amazing spot for an early morning breakfast with a view. Being as beauty obsessed as I am, I always check out the hotel’s bathroom products. I was delighted to see Neutrogena and Bath & Body Works products in this one. On our tour of the hotel, we learned that the owner named it after his daughter. We also learned that some celebrities that have stayed at the Kimberly Hotel include Jennifer Hudson, Lauren Dern and Mira Sorvino. I would definitely recommend the Kimberly Hotel to anyone who wants to be in the middle of all that NYC has to offer from Broadway to Central Park. Follow the Kimberly Hotel on Facebook and Twitter and if your name is Kimberly, you’re in luck!
