Cookies and Chill: Doubletree (Bedford Glen)

I did not intentionally plan a weekend getaway from NYC but it so happens that my husband wanted to visit a jiu jitsu school in Boston so who am I to say no to a road trip? As the work week went on, from the first time he mentioned the trip, I anticipated the get away more and more. I jumped onto the Doubletree Bedford Glen website to check out the hotel’s amenities and saw that there was a pool and a gym. (FYI, I still have not made it to the gym.)

I envisioned myself reading magazines, my book and sipping coffee by the pool. No tall tropical drinks here because it’s cold. I have to say, upon entry to the Doubtree, I was not let down. The hotel is clean, spacious and beautiful. There are tons of real plants that are used to decorate the hotel’s lobby which offers a feel of the outdoors while you are inside. Brilliant!

The rooms are spacious and there is enough room for all three of us to lounge comfortably.

Plenty of counter space in the bathroom and the lovely is a flat lay lover’s dream.

For a super reasonable fee, you can feast like a queen for breakfast at the hotel’s buffet. There are newspapers like USA Today and The Wall Street Journal that you have access to daily.

We definitely made it to the pool and Angelique got a chance to use her beloved Mermaid Tail. The little boys who were in the pool cried out in delight, “A Mermaid!”

There is a desk and a very comfy lounge chair area in the room.

Angelique applied some press on nails for me and now I’m feeling myself.

The weekend wind down is essential in order to conquer the many work weeks ahead.
