The Adventures of Jada and Mommy: Manhattan, NY

This year I took Jada to the most wonderful place on Earth. No, not Disney World. Manhattan, NY! We spent Three days and two nights in Midtown! 

There were a lot of "firsts" on this trip. Since we live close enough to NYC we decided to take NJ transit to the city. We drove to the Hoboken station and took the train for $15 each (children free on weekends with adult). It was a no brainer.

Once we arrived in the city, we stayed at The Chambers Hotel. Chambers is a fantastic Boutique Hotel that I definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area. The personal service and style is completely unrivaled. This place would specifically appeal to those wanting to stay in the shopping district- at 56th Street and 5th Avenue. Prime location. It would also appeal to those with artistic interests. Every room displays unique one of a kind art organized by the floor. The staff is extremely helpful and kind. If you ask I am sure they would be willing to give you a tour!

They had a small robe just for Jada! Great attention to detail!

 Nice letter of welcome and tickets to MoMA!

great quail sandwich at Ma Peche inside of the hotel.

getting ready to hit the town for the night!

The next morning we decided that we wanted to explore the area. We visited Carnegie Hall, Rockefeller Plaza, FAO Schwartz and Nintendo World (we like games!).

 after walking back, I saw this....A few doors down! This is where I wanted to work for YEARS! Love Baby Phat and Pastry!

As I said before this hotel is AMAZING. I took a few shots of the rooms but the lobby is one place you have to see! The photos just do not do this place justice!

I definitely recommend that you look into this hotel. You will not regret it!
