Just a few blocks away from the epicenter of New York’s Times Square, the Citizen M hotel opened it’s doors and we were invited to come check it out. As we strutted down the red carpet beautiful hostesses welcomed us into the spacious lobby. Seconds later we found ourselves with a glass of wine in our hands, mingling with the eclectic crowd that had gathered around the lobby bar. For a moment we just stood there, taking in all the beauty of the hip and playful art displayed in gigantic bookshelves. The space gave us Dutchies a homey feel, especially after we spotted a bicycle mounted the wall and a painting of our former queen Beatrix.
The lobby was quite impressive, but when Evelyne and I stay at a hotel, we rate it on the quality of the bed and shower. We decided to take the elevator up to the rooms and explore. Every room had a fun quote on the door which somehow helped to unleash the inner child in us. We played with the curtain remote, the digital art on the wall and felt compelled to do some rigorous bed testing! And what better way to test a bed then jumping up and down the mattress? The pillows withstood a proper pillow fight and we just had to sing a song in the luxurious and futuristic shower.
Needless to say, we had a lot of fun and came to the conclusion that we would totally stay here and recommend this hotel to our friends. Our excitement must have been infectious as one of the guests asked if we were paid actors. We laughed and answered; “Nope, we are just here to give our unbiased opinion and we both agreed that this hotel makes us happy and is officially “Model Approved”.
XO Jill & Evelyne
