The Waldorf had a little Instagram challenge recently and I won by receiving the most likes on an Instagram. (It ended up being between me and another blogger, but still… Life Lesson #3847: you have to play to win.)
The prize was a stay at the Waldorf and to take over the @WaldorfNYC Instagram account for the night. What a perfect excuse for a staycation!
Garrett and I checked in on Friday afternoon and spent some time exploring the hotel and suite. The suite was legitimately four or five times the size of my apartment… I didn’t want to leave.

I don’t think I’ll ever not get lost in the Waldorf. It’s so big and there’s always something new around the corner. But getting lost is half the fun, right?
Legend has it that the Waldorf invented the red velvet cake because of food rationing during WWII. Chefs used beet juice to sweeten the cake, which gives it the red color! So. Good.
I swear the matching pajamas were Garret’s idea. Seersucker for him and red chambray for me, both given to us by Sleepy Jones!
We slept in on Saturday… a serious luxury for a puppy owner! We would have gone downstairs for breakfast, but room service was too tempting. We ended our little stay with a trip to the rooftop garden. It’s been almost a year since our last visit and still just as breathtaking.
A big thank you to the Waldorf for letting us take a micro-vacation!
