bowery hotel. things were quiet so they seated me in the lobby, usually reserved for hotel guests, and they gave me a sunday times from the desk!
last week i was invited to an event at the venerable parker house hotel in boston. unfortunately i couldn't make it. it was a brunch my friend john zindar, an international business consultant, orchestrated for a trade delegation from latvia, including the prime minister! apparently i would also have been welcomed at an evening reception for them- i like stuff like that, oh well...
i did once spend a week at the parker house. more about that here.
and pictures of a stay at the bowery hotel here.
