What makes it couture is obvious: the fashiony prints on the wall, the style books on the shelves, and the sparkly chandeliers. (Oh! And the wine fridge!) But there are some other key points we think the fash pack will love about this suite, too.
Functional things like: loads of space for practicing your catwalk spin; huuuge mirrors in the entryway and bedroom for close-up and full-length inspection of your outfits; and an abundance of closet space to store all your couture. The bedroom's closet is the largest, but there is another one in the hallway and one more in the little office/den.
Staying in the Couture Suite certainly made us feel stylish, even when we were simply curled up on that comfy white leather couch reading. (Maybe because we were browsing the big Rizzoli book about stylists?)
Our room-service server loved the room, too. She hadn't been into this suite before, and gave it an appreciative once-over and told us, "Oooh. This is nice." She especially loved the Jackie Onassis quote on the print in the dining room: "The first time you marry for love, the second for money, and the third for companionship."
The sentiment seems tailored for the Couture Suite when you think about it. The digs are pretty enough for a romantic getaway, expensive enough for the twice-married dames, and spacious enough for two to enjoy without getting all up in each other's business.
Couture Suite rates start at $1,500 a night.
