Religion aside, for many Easter is all about scoffing chocolate eggs with impunity – it’s Easter after all. In addition to indulging in cocoa smothered treats why not take your indulgence to new levels by booking a stay at the five –star New York Palace. President Obama and Orlando Bloom have stayed at this luxurious hotel where old –world elegance and new –world opulence seamlessly collide.

With its sweeping city views, beautifully furnished rooms and being ideally located in the heart of mid-town Manhattan, at 50th Street and Madison Avenue, it is no wonder that the hotel is immortalised on television when it was used routinely as a location for the TV show Gossip Girl.

On –site amenities include the spacious Spa & Fitness Centre where you can work out overlooking St. Patrick’s Cathedral then relax with a rejuvenating spa treatment. Guests can enjoy a range of dishes at Gilt, the new restaurant and bar, along with Istana, an American brasserie where afternoon tea is served.H84WF_27276026_NYP Lobby July 2008
