The Quin Will Let You 'Freshen Up' With Fresh Toiletries
One of the New York openings we're most excited about this year is The Quin, a 205-room luxury property located on West 57th St, two blocks from Central Park and one block from Carnegie Hall (we've walked by ourselves, so we know).
Location? Check. Gold leaf ceilings and leather-wrapped columns? Check. Touch-screen tablets on the nightstand? Check.
But here's another thing for the Quin to brag about: it'll be the first hotel in New York to offer "Fresh" toiletries in all the guest rooms. Whoopeee!
For those of you uninitiated into the world of hotel toiletries, Fresh is a French boutique skincare line that uses yummy—and, err, fresh—ingredients like sugar, milk, soy and rice in all their products. They're one of our absolute faves.

We took a sneak peek at The Quin's model room last week, and there are definitely some other goodies in store for guests here: in-room check-in for all guests, exclusive handcrafted Swedish Duxiana beds, Nespresso machines, and a minibar that will sell jewelry and perfume, in addition to snacks and booze. That's right. So while you're lounging in your bathrobe, applying your Fresh moisturizer, you can also do a little "in-room shopping," just as if you were at the airport.
The hotel is currently set for a "mid-2013 opening" (probably sometime around June).
