Call your favorite girlfriends. Book your spa treatments. Plan to shop on Madison Avenue. Enjoy amazing tastes at new, world-class restaurants. And do it all with your favorite girlfriends. New York City is the perfect destination for a girl-only getaway because there is so much to do. And because the city never sleeps, you and your friends can fit it all in.
Where to Stay
Think about where you and your friends will be all weekend. Where do you want to shop and play? Where is the spa you want to visit? The answers to these questions can help determine where you should stay. Don’t book a Brooklyn hotel, if everything you plan on doing is on Madison Avenue. Avoid commuting back and forth and reserve the best rooms in the middle of the actions.
We love The James in Soho because it will put you in the middle of everything. Plus, the luxury hotel boasts inviting and luxurious spaces, a rooftop pool and free coffee and wine hours, creating the perfect way to relax with your friends.
Or reserve your room at The Ludlow in the Lower East Side and with luxury that will make you want to move in. Enjoy stylish rooms, a beautiful lounge area, included breakfast and an ideal location. You and your friends can sip drinks in the Dirty French, the on-site restaurant, an make your plans for an evening out.
Indulge yourself at PUBLIC. The refined and sophisticated hotel offers thoughtful design with distinct spaces for sleeping, relaxing and entertaining. Plus, each room’s design offers seamless technology, placing everything you and your friends need in arms reach.
What to Do
Take in a Broadway show while you’re in NYC. Even if you can’t score tickets to Hamilton, try to see Bette Midler in the revival of Hello Dolly, the critically acclaimed Dear Evan Hansen or a modern classic like Wicked. Be sure to plan ahead to get tickets, as this essential New York City experience can sell out fast, especially for the bigger and newer shows.
If you’re a baseball fan, then make time on your itinerary for a Yankee’s game. Maybe not considered a typical girl weekend activity, a baseball game lets you root for the home team with your hair down. And there’s nothing quite like the atmosphere in Yankee Stadium.
Plan some of the touristy things to do too. If you don’t travel to New York very often, or even if you do, take the time to stroll through Central Park or goggle the views from the top of Rockefeller Center. Even plan time to see the exhibits in Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, which is always busy, but boasts an incomparable collection that everyone should see once.
Where to Shop
Many girls weekends focus on the shopping, and New York City is the ultimate location for unique and luxury shopping that you can’t find anywhere else. Stroll up Madison Avenue for world class shopping, but visit the neighborhoods some something a little less expected, like Artist and Fleas in Soho that boasts handcrafted goods from up and coming artists.
Look for sample sales from your favorite designers and brands. Time Out shares a weekly list of the dramatic sales at your favorite NYC shops, making the high-end brands accessible. Besides, it’s always more fun to shop a sale.
Where to Relax and Indulge
Take the time to slow down on your weekend and enjoy the pampering and luxury that is always best shared with friends. New York City offers some of the finest luxury experiences in the world, and they’re waiting just for you and your girls. Schedule a luxurious treatment at the Mandarin Oriental Spa. One of the most highly regarded spas in the world, you can enjoy an array of services while looking out over skyline views.
Drybar is a must visit before any big night out with your friends. Enjoy a luxurious wash, a glass of champagne and the perfect blow out while you and your friends laugh talk. Walk out feeling transformed and ready for a late night in the city.
A manicure and pedicure with the girls might seem like something you could do at home, but when you experience it in New York City, it becomes a luxurious decadence. Try out Red Door Salon & Spa on Fifth Avenue for the ultimate treatment to leave you and your friends feeling and looking your best.
