As you know, I am not the world's best photographer, nor, it appears, am I the most prolific when it comes to vacation snapping. While going through the photos from our trip I discovered that the majority of them were of our hotel in NYC - The Jane. That's okay though, because The Jane is really a place worth talking about.
I have no idea if this is the most expensive hotel I've ever stayed in (you'd have to ask Mr B as he usually takes care of our travel accommodations), but it is definitely my favorite one. Have you seen The Grand Budapest Hotel? Well, The Jane is kind of like a hipster version of that. Maybe not quite as grand, but it certainly looks like it should be in a Wes Anderson film. They have an amazing lobby complete with taxidermied peacocks and classically uniformed staff.
According to the literature, The Jane was originally a hotel for sailors. One of it's claims to fame was housing the survivors of the Titanic (a little Belfast connection there) until the inquiry into the ship's sinking.
I found this article from the NYTimes about The Jane, if you want to read more.
