Of course we could stay in my apartment when Pat visits, but why not make the time seeing each other a little more special and intimate in a hotel? I let him take the reins of finding out where to stay. This top floor penthouse room has been a room that we’ve come back to! Much love for The Martinique in Herald Square by Hilton.
