Two weekends ago, Thomas up and left me for his bachelor party. We’ve already discussed how unfair his destination of choice was because it’s my favorite city ever. Austin. Yes. Whatever. I’m over it. No hard feelings. Especially because I spent the weekend at the Thompson Beverly Hills with my girlfriends.
I firmly believe in staycations. They just need to happen every once in a while. Plus it’s fun to pretend you’re on vaca and get all dolled up for a weekend that doesn’t involve hoping on a plane! I’ve been dying to stay at the Thompson for a while now. Friends always mention how fun the pool and outdoor bar is, for I figured what the heck! Why not splurge on a fun weekend while the boys are away.
It was exactly what the doctor ordered.
A quality 7 hours poolside soaking up the sun.
Delicious cocktails like this Jalapeño infused silver tequila, agave nectar, fresh lime, basil, and cucumber served over ice. Umm, yes please.
and infusions. Trouble. With a capital T.
And a phenomenal dinner at Caulfield’s, which was fab. There were a few of us and we split the Burrata and Peppers, Mac + Cheese, Burger + Fries, Roasted Salmon, Brussels with Bacon and Charred Broccolini with a Fried egg. Everything rocked my socks off. Plus the service was spot on!
Basically it was the perfect staycation and the hotel was just fab. The rooms were gorgeous, sleek and modern.
The pool was perfect. Not too big or crowded with an awesome bar and pool menu.
All in all I’d say it was pretty much the perfect girls weekend! Although I must say, it would kinda be the perfect place to take your significant other too! In fact, I’m thinking of throwing Thomas’ birthday party on the pool deck in one of the cabanas!
Staycations are the best.
You should totally do one. At the Thompson. Because let’s be honest here, I’m obsessed. The food, the people, the atmosphere. Everything.
In fact, next time I head over to NYC, I’m for sure staying at the Thompson LES.
Happy Tuesday folks!
Full disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. I paid for my own hotel room too! Caulfield’s did however host me for dinner.
