Jessica Minh Anh was invited to stay at Virgin Hotels New York, one of the city's newest luxury lifestyle brands this Spring 2023. "I did my Master Degree in Marketing Communications in the UK and our biggest media case study was the Virgin Group. It's very exciting to experience Sir Richard Branson's newest venture in New York City" said Jessica Minh Anh.
Located at the heart of the booming NoMad neighborhood, Virgin Hotels New York delivers a vibrant yet sophisticated hospitality experience. Richard Branson's hotel intermixes a passion for food and beverage with music, design, and culture. To create a contemporary space that seamlessly melds the classic Virgin aesthetic with the dynamism of the Big Apple, Virgin Hotels tapped the local design team at MARKZEFF and community-minded architecture firm Stantec.
"The best part of Virgin Hotels New York is its incredible views of Manhattan and the iconic Empire State Building. I can see it vividly from my bedroom window" said Jessica Minh Anh.
Another aspect of the hotel that Jessica loves is the dressing room. "I find it quite challenging to get ready in hotel rooms due to lighting and space. The fact that Virgin Hotels New York features a vanity desk with lights around a large mirror and comfortable seat to do your makeup is brilliant."
Against the backdrop of the Empire State Building, the Pool Club, which features a heated swimming pool and a modern cocktail lounge, is the perfect spot for a summer party!
An epicenter of cultural activity, restaurant Everdene occupies the entire third floor of the hotel. Everdene's Bar offers an elevated food menu and an inventive list of craft cocktails in a stylish setting, accented with Virgin's quintessential rock-and-roll vibe. Everdene also serves breakfasts and a wake-me-up cappuccino might just be what you need to start a productive day.
The current portfolio of Virgin Hotels includes seven cities: Chicago, Dallas, Nashville, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Edinburgh and New York City.
