My movie date.

The screening room at Covent Garden Hotel. Minus the people. Plus the Champagne.

The best place to watch a movie.

In my humblest of opinions, the Covent Garden Hotel's private screening room is the absolutely perfect for watching a movie. No people. No mobile phones. No circulating germs and ...

Within Reach V.

Within Reach IV.

Within Reach III.

Within Reach II.

Within Reach I.

I adore a hotel that notes my preferences aka peculiarities. Thank you Covent Garden Hotel for ensuring my tissue is always within reach.

Points for Buca.

Sweet and simple. I adored the fact cutlery was placed on the plate as opposed to on the table.

The perfect amenity.

I found this in my room at the Hotel Le Germain in Toronto. A perfect welcome for the Hygiene Hunter. If you are not fluent in French, Google Refermables.

The No-Hand Press.

The best way to avoid germs on elevator buttons is by not directly touching them. A room key can be really useful in this situation. Especially if you do not want to carry around a tissue box like me. Just remember to handle the right end.

Overprotective at the Mercer.

Just the way I like it;) You'll find complimentary protection among your bathroom amenities AND sneeze-proofed food delivered to your room. This is my mighty Kale Shake that helps boost immunity.

This is how I like my carpet.

Lint free. With a sold-out hotel this was a triumph for Mercer housekeeping staff.

A bath at the Mercer anyone?

No, this is not an invitation. Instead of waiting over an hour to strip naked for the Carsten Holler: Experience at the New Museum I chose to bath in my clothes in private.

A bath at the museum anyone?

The only thing missing from the Carsten Holler: Experience at the New Museum is the smell of corn dogs. Thank you Carsten Holler. You can literally slide through the museum starting on the fourth floor, have your retinas fried on the second by flickering lights and take off way more than your shoes on the third for an out-of-body experience in the sensory-deprivation pool entitled the Giant Psycho Tank. Even though the policy for the tank is one person at a time, a shower was mandatory, the water salt, I passed on this experience since sensory deprivation is said to lead to bizarre thoughts. And quite clearly, I do not need any more of those.

A perfect start to the New Year.

The Mercer's Resident Pillow Fluffer ensures no fruitcake, turkey basters or New Year's Resolutions have slipped through the cracks in the sofa.
