I'm in New York City this week, the capital of all things sparkling and fabulous. And am I ever enjoying the luxury of staying in a suite at the venerable St. Regis Hotel.
The room is done in beautiful shades of gold accented with pinstriped wall coverings, bombe chests and a secretary trimmed in brass scrolls, a marble fireplace and lots of chandeliers.
But the most decadent surprise awaited in the bath, where I found the menu for the signature Krug champagne baths. Just ring the butler (every floor has one) and he'll conjure up a rose petal bath with Krug Rose; a Maison du Chocolat and Krug Grande Cuvee bath; or the Ultimate with four ounces of Osetra caviar and a magnum of Krug definitely designed for sharing!
As the price tags for these baths range from $525 to $1650, you can always resort to B.Y.O.K.
