Luxury Hotel HamptonsHamptons Here We Come
There's no place like home for a New Yorker than the Hamptons in the summer. The recession of 2008 may as well be the crash of 1929, where both are a distant memory. This year feels like a renaissance in the Hamptons, where Montauk continues to be hot (Surf Lodge on a Sunday evening is the place to be), the Golden Pear on a Saturday in Southampton becomes the scene of the previous evening's debrief and East Hampton and Amagansset seem to be where all the celebs, including the Clintons for their annual rental, have decided to call home this August. Yes, Ibiza is trending high and a yacht in St. Tropez is always en vogue, but the Hamptons this summer is undeniably the place to be.
While we like to crash out with our generous friends at their lavish spreads, sometimes we just want to check into a luxury hotel incognito, do our thing for a few days and rest our head on a $10,000 Hastens bed at night. For that, luckily there is c/o The Maidstone, which is hands down the coolest boutique hotel on the East End. They have cleverly coined the phrase, "Scandanavian cozy", which is the theme, from the rooms named after famous Swedes, decor from the homeland and their farm-to-table Swedish-inspired cuisine at their restaurant, The Living Room. Besides high-design rooms and top-notch service, this August 2014, Galavante members get 20% off weekday rates, from Monday to Thursday, subject to availability. As if we needed more incentive for a ditch day this perfect summer. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll upgrade your lifestyle.
