Last week, I took a trip to NYC with my best friend for her birthday. It was a little work, a lot of play. Just the way life, itself, intends. 

We had the best stay at the SIXTY LES, located in the heart of one of my favorite neighborhoods, the Lower East Side. 

The Lower East Side, also known as LES, has that kind of downtown grit you'd hope to experience in NYC. The cafes are filled with character, and the bars are filled with...well, characters. 

The SIXTY was the perfect spot to call home for the weekend. The rooms are cozy and the views are to die for. Although central to blocks of trendy eateries, you could enjoy an equally indulgent night-in at Blue Ribbon sushi (located on the hotel's lower level) or upstairs at Tiki Tabu.

Looking for nearly every excuse to visit again soon...
