Hip Hotel: The Broome Opens in New York

Next time you need to book a hotel room in New York, check out the brand new boutique hotel The Broome. Tucked away in a Federal Revival Style building built in 1825 that was a former artists’ loft located on the corner of Broome Street and Crosby Street, The Broome is like an oasis in the middle of SoHo, which in case you didn’t know, is one of the city’s most stylish neighborhoods, and filled with luxury boutiques, see-and-be-seen restaurants, and lots of people watching.

Once inside, be prepared to get impressed by The Broome’s art collection, which is filled with works by Chaz Guest — a favorite of Barack Obama, Jean Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. Then, head out of the lobby and into a nice courtyard that makes you feel like you’re in Europe. There are only 14 rooms inside The Broome, making it feel more like you’re a New Yorker living in an intimate apartment building and less like you’re staying a hotel in the middle of the Big Apple.

The rooms feature cool Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams furnishings, plush-top Queen and King Sealy mattresses and Bellimo sheets, which gives you the most amazing sleeping experience. If you’re in the mood for a little television, there’s a Samsung Smart TV, or if music is more your fancy, put some beats on the Tivoli sound system. The mini bar is filled with local goodies like Nunu’s Chocolates and Tate’s Bakeshop Cookies, and if you’re feeling a like being a little naughty, there’s a Henley e-cigarette and a kit full of condoms and sex toys.

Enjoy a cappuccino in the café in the morning and read your paper while feeling as if you’re in Italy, while enjoying a breakfast of Ronnybrook Farm dairy products and Cei Cela pastries, fruit, granola, yogurt, and juices. Then, play a game of Foosball, and look for goodies to bring back home in The Treehouse, which is filled with all sorts of interesting gifts. Now, you’re all ready to head out and enjoy a day or night out in the Big Apple.

The United States is seeing a significant uptick in new passport applications as travelers seek new experiences in 2023 and beyond. In response, the U.S. Department of State is hitting the road, giving prospective travelers in select states a unique way to apply for passports.

The Department of State passport initiative is called “Special Acceptance Passport Fairs.” The fairs will take place in local public libraries, recreation centers, and city administrative offices. Travelers should only attend the fairs if they are looking to submit a new passport application. The passport process for renewals can be done via mail. Unfortunately, there’s still no option to renew your passport online — that would be too easy.

Everyone has their favorite airline they stay loyal to — and the airline they swear they'll never fly again, even if it was because of one flight experience. If you've ever wondered if anyone else has a deep distrust of the same airline or airport you do, let's find out. Price4Limo analyzed both Twitter and data from the U.S. Department of Transportation to see which airlines and airports people complained about most, and what their dissatisfaction was about.
Which ones are topping Twitter
Keep in mind that Twitter is where people go to make a grumble rather than to give a compliment. But keywords (like "angry," "horrible," and "frustrated") were flagged and totaled up.
