Maritime Chic

Fear not maritime enthusiasts, we are living the life the rich and famous aspire to, or at the very least, play at. New York's nautically themed Maritime Hotel promises to give guests the maritime experience without ever leaving land.

How? you ask.

According to Stephen Beaumont it's the ambience. "Entering the hotel lobby is akin to wading into a warm, welcoming sea, with intensely marine blue carpeting and soft lighting combining to produce a romantically nautical sensation." And then there are the rooms with "walls that curve rather than angle into the ceiling and large porthole windows that actually open."

For those of you planning a cruise to New York City - rooms run from $245-$295. Official Maritime Hotel Website.
