Four words: “the hours of indulgence.” Perfectly named, perfectly phrased. The moment when we fell in love with the 1920s-inspired WestHouse Hotel NYC was the moment when they said, “complimentary, unlimited champagne (and wine or beer) from 5pm to at least 10:30pm every night.” EVERY NIGHT. And they called it, “the hours of indulgence.”
Dare we say, both of our mothers would be proud; we took advantage. Total advantage.
Here’s our experience, wrapped up into an easy-to-follow, grab-a-glass-of-wine step-by-step process:
Step 1: Check in, learn about, “the hours of indulgence.”
Step 2: Look to each other.
Step 3: Smile.
Step 4: Grab our bags, take the elevator up to our floor, and to our room.
Step 5: Gasp.
Step 6: Gasp some more.
Step 7: Quietly realize to ourselves that, because WestHouse is a smaller boutique hotel in Midtown, EVERY room is super luxe (and we lucked out with a suite).
Step 8: GASP GASP GASP.
Step 9: Jump on the king bed.
Step 10: Run out onto the terrace.
Step 11: Scream out onto 7th Avenue.
Step 12: Take a selfie in a robe.
Step 13: Drink every bottle of complimentary Evian water.
Step 14: Turn on the TV to Bravo.
Step 15: Head straight to “the hours of indulgence.”
All steps necessary.
That, and we also gorged on complimentary breakfast every day. BOOM. The WestHouse won our hearts. Champagne + food. We just felt like everyone should know that.
