I’m currently writing this post laying in a fluffy white bed while sipping fresh brewed coffee and stuffing my face with gourmet buttermilk pancakes. I’m overlooking the city of Columbus, in my cotton bathrobe and slippers. There are no screaming children or breakfast demands this morning. Last night, I slept 8 hours. Eight blissful hours of uninterrupted sleep. I feel rested, renewed and ready to embrace the chaos that awaits me at home.
But I don’t have to leave right now, and I am 100% cool with that.
My cousin and best friend, Natalie and I were spoiled rotten yesterday with a complimentary spa day and stay at Le Meridien The Joseph in downtown Columbus. The experience was first class from the moment we valeted the car.
We checked-in early and were quickly whisked away to a 4th level spa suite with a massage table, white sofas with fluffy pillows, duel showers, heated chaise loungers, and a porcelain bathtub. The room smelled of lavender and light elevator music filled the elegant yet tranquil room.
I enjoyed a 60 minute full body massage, and left the room feeling the most relaxed I’ve felt in months…scratch that, years!
We decided to step out on the town and visited a new sushi restaurant in the Short North – The 1126. Wow! DELICIOUS cocktails and fresh sushi, make my mama heart happy. Later that evening, our moms and my sister-in-law joined us for a girls’ night out at we Cameron Mitchell’s The Guild House. We were treated to unique appetizers including ahi tuna and a variety of different desserts, including apple fritters with house made apple butter and ice cream. YUM!
After dinner, we crashed around 10:30 PM and it was fabulous! Can I just tell you what 8 hours of solid sleep can do for the mind, body and soul??? I really need to take better care of myself, but I digress…
So here I sit this morning, drinking my last cup of coffee and stalling until the very last moment before I have check-out.
I can’t rave enough about how fabulous this hotel is. The Joseph features 135 chic guest rooms and preferred member suites (we were lucky enough to be in a suite!). Honestly, from the lavish spa, to the delectable room service…it’s no wonder why this luxury hotel is a 5-star experience!
