Spoiled princess? Grandma chic? What's your take on this week's all-pink bathroom?. After last week's all black-and-white affair, we felt a little color was necessary. Perhaps we ventured too far to the other side of the spectrum?

As a bonus, we also are including a special video we shot from the wraparound Madison Avenue-facing balcony, attached to the suite. Though, when you're this high up, "avenue-facing" becomes more a figure of speech than anything else. It might be more accurate to say "avenue-defying."

The suite in question is none other than the Rodgers & Hammerstein Suite at Omni Berkshire Place, a roomy (there was a whole other half bath that we didn't even have time to photograph!) spot that goes for $2,500 a night. Toiletries courtesy of Institute Swiss.

Interestingly, the suite derives its name from the award-winning songwriting team Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. In 1943, the duo stayed here and penned the well-known musical Oklahoma!.

As for the terrace: though all guests aren't always clued in to the stunning, sky-high balcony (it's usually reserved for special occasions and private events—but if you're curious, just ask!), our faithful tour guide Trine led us straight out. In between stomach-turning views of the street below, we learned that the terrace is up for a renovation and new furniture will be brought in to spruce the whole place up.
