Livin’ the High Life

I made a last minute decision to visit numรฉro unย (my eldest son) in NYC last week, and luckily, I found a room at theย Standard Highlineย in theย Meatpacking District. It was hands down one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in Manhattan in terms of the level of comfort and hospitality, and how about that view from my room on the 15th floor?

Can’t wait to go back!
