Last week, a good friend of mine asked if I'd heard anything about the new luxury boutique hotel in the Hamptons. I remember hearing about Topping Rose House back when it was first opening last year, as it's quite a big deal for the Hamptons. Full service hotels are few and far between in this luxury beach area. I'm so glad my friend reminded me to check out Topping Rose, the online reviews rave of the accommodations not to mention the accompanying Tom Colicchio restaurant. A quick glance at the impressive architecture and the stunning interiors, designed by Champalimaud Design and I'm ready to book a weekend there myself.
Word to the wise, if you don't like traffic and waiting on line for coffees or newspapers, follow my lead and look into visiting the Hamptons this fall, when everything is still just as lovely, only a bit quieter.
