We woke up as early as humanly possible the next day after a fabulous first night in NYC, and decided to check out the hotel and head down for breakfast.
Beautifully styled, the most impressive part of the hotel for me (apart from the pink velvet sofa of dreams) was the 9 story atrium which is a true show stopper. With Victorian ironwork and flourishes throughout, its definitely a hotel with personality.
With beautiful jewel toned velvet furniture and bohemian Esq floral arrangements I kept finding things to love
I have to say, from a design point of view The Beekman Hotel is the prefect place to stay for a girl weekend. Its fun, stylish and totally Instagram friendly. Not far from Brooklyn bridge, its great for exploring downtown Manhattan.
We headed for breakfast at the rather fancy and decadent temple court, which was perfect for planning our next few days in the city.
Its all stained glass windows and chandeliers fabulousity
I ordered the banana bread french toast which was absolutely incredible, and the prefect (but a bit naughty) start to the day. Along with about 20 coffees to help with my extreme tiredness
Every detail of the interiors was total goals, and felt sumptuous and decadent with impeccable attention to deal. The Beekman has fast become one of my favorite places to stay when in New York City.
See, I wasn't joking about that pink sofa of dreams (is it wrong that this was a big influence in the "where should we stay talks" ...
We had a fabulous time at The Beekman hotel, its somewhere id definitely recommend staying if your planning a trip to NYC

Breakfasts at Tivoli Palacio de Seteais are a wonderful thing, so much so I wanted to share our last one with you. Firstly, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. Probably because I rarely have breakfast as i'm normally too busy, so when I do its usually while i'm on vacation and can really luxuriate over it.
On our last day, we took one final walk around the hotel, and gardens trying to preserve the memory of such a lovely place.
We found the super cute herb garden, and even learned a few Portuguese words for some of our favourite herbs
Once we were ready for breakfast, we made our way to the restaurant. Its actually served in the same lovely room as dinner but took on a whole new appeal in the daylight
We were treated to the freshest pastry basket, filled with warm bread and croissants. And the most elaborate table was laid out with every fresh fruit you can imagine. Along with cheeses, cold cuts and freshly squeezed juice all served on the loveliest china
The chef is only too happy to make you breakfast al a carte, so naturally I ordered pancakes too
The prefect ending to a prefect trip to Sintra
We set off from Lisbon for a few days in Sintra, which is around an hours drive away. When we researching our road trip, Sintra popped up and I knew instantly that I would love it. It is the most beautiful magical place and such a contract to Lisbon
We drove to the hotel first, Tivoli Palacio de seteanis Sintra Hotel
The hubbs had kept me completely in the dark about this hotel, but he said as soon as he saw it he knew id fall in love with it and wanted to surprise me
So arriving at this beautiful stately home with no expectations completely took my breath away. It is incredible. And not only is it incredible, but the service and attention to detail was absolutely second to none. Not a hair out of place as they say
Floral arrangement upon floral arrangement adorns the beautiful, grand and often whimsical rooms. The interiors of the hotel are in complete cohesion with Sintra itself, as its such a magical, mystical place.
The most beautiful orchids in ornate pots are everywhere. Glimmering chandeliers adorn the ceilings and beautiful antique furniture is in every room
And despite its size and grandier, we felt like we the only people there. It manages to be immense yet intimate at the same time. You feel like you were meant to be here, at least we did- so much so that we didn't want to leave
I Completely feel in Love with this room. It was so enchanting wit its delicate whimsical pastel tones and the hand painted walls
We were no less delighted when we arrived at our suite. This is not one of those all foyer and no bedroom type hotels (don't you just hate that?)
It was sumptuous, luxurious and every little detail was taken care of. We even had fresh fluffy white hydrangeas in our room. That was the deal sealer for me
With views of the fairytale Palácio da Pena, I almost pinched myself. Just how romantic
After checking in and freshening up we headed down to dinner and more importantly to check out the bar.
Which, just like the rest of the hotel was super cute and incredibly detailed.
After an aperitif or two, we noticed the sun was setting behind the picturesque Sintra mountains in the most spectacular fashion. It literally looked like the sky has caught fire.
A sunset, especially one as spectacular as this one is one of nature’s greatest shows so we never miss an opportunity to watch one. And there really are no excuses to miss one while your on vacation.
To complete an already perfect day, we enjoyed a beautiful and decadent dinner at the hotels restaurant, Seteais.
I Literally can not recommend Sintra and specifically the Tivoli Palacio de Seteais enough. Not just because of its obvious beauty, but because the service we received was flawless and we felt like we were whisked away into a perfect, romantic bubble for the duration of our stay. Just lovely
