fills the air and creates an instant feeling of euphoria. Starting

sweeping views of the city. Huge feather beds, plush goose
down pillows and exceptionally spacious bathrooms combine
like magnets, inviting relaxation; but with the wonders of NYC

highlights including free music and dance performances, fairs
and a variety of restaurants and shops. Oh, and a fenced dog run
