City Pulse

By Beauty News Staff

The Pool Deck, at the UWS’s newly refurbished Empire Hotel (the rooms are lovely, BTW) has one-upped the whole rooftop scene and offers its hotel guests only (wink) two levels of ultra-elevated outdoor space with uncompromising views – both on the inside and out.

The rooftop at The Empire is like a non-slutty version of Vegas right in Manhattan. The cabanas are a dream, each pimped out with flatscreens, refrigerators, iPod docking stations and extra-cushy, big-enough-for-two loungers (if you really want to get cozy, you can even draw the curtain). This level also offers loungers to the devoted sun-worshiper and cushion-y papasans for sipping cocktails. Spa services are also available on the roof, so that you can get your rubdown al fresco.

The upper level is where you’ll find the plunge pool. You won’t be swimming laps in this bad boy, but it certainly does the job in the city’s sweltering heat and beats any day at John Jay.
