This review is almost (an embarrassing) year late, but I wanted to share my two week stay at Tressies house last May (2011) with other travellers.
After a very late arrival at 1.00amish in the morning, Tressie my host, greeted me at the door with a smile and a hug – to meet someone so nice was comforting after 29 non-stop of long-haul travelling and no sleep was appreciated.
Tressie showed me to my room and what I didn’t expect was how HUGE the tastefully decorated room and en-suite bathroom (especially by New York standards (and this was my 4th visit to New York) was! The room had a very comfortable double bed, single bed, microwave, mini fridge, plasma TV, desk, draws and free Wi-Fi. Welcoming touches included fruit, water, yoghurt and milk in the fridge (from memory) and bath products/fresh flowers in the bathroom.
Tressie is the perfect host and cleaned up after my mess (and my friend Kat’s when she arrived a few days later) every day and made us feel at home. One thing I do remember about my stay and think about it every time I am in a home wares shop is the beautiful scent at Tressies that greets you at the door when you arrive home after a busy day at shopping (must be oil or something). Something small, but welcoming and memorable about the stay.
Georgia and Marie were fabulous with confirming the reservation, preparing our communal breakfast (and again cleaning up after me) and humoring me with general chitchat and reassurance while I got over my bad jet lag! Thanks so much ladies!
The location itself is great – 4 short blocks away from the 116th street subway express stop – 15mins later your in Times Square! There is a train every 10mins or so. Kat and I took an afternoon to walk down 5th & Madison Avenues (one block from Tressies) to Central Park West then onto Columbus Circle. We walked along Broadway towards 106th/Amsterdam where we caught the bus for the last few blocks to Tressie’s place.
I loved my stay and I have recommended this B&B to my friends who are travelling to NYC and will continue to do so.
