A while back I hit up The NYLO Hotel over in Plano for a staycation and had a blast.
Taking advantage of a package deal, we checked into our New York loft inspired funky urban room which featured a NYLO NYTE™ bed with custom bedding and free wired and wireless high-speed Internet access. Our room also sported a handheld rain shower head, exclusive NYLO amenities, free bottled water, coffee and tea, a large 32″ flat-screen HD LCD TV, pay-per-view movies and an iPod docking station.
After settling in, we were off to explore the hotel’s bar and restaurant. As we coursed through NYLO’s high polished concrete floors and exposed interiors and just off the entrance, found the restaurant, lounge and bar area. Packed with seating and tables designed for intimate gatherings and conversation, we also noticed the space had a relaxing patio courtyard with cool swing-style seating, a lap pool, lounge beds, and bar area with tables and chairs. My companion and I remarked how perfect these areas would be for say a bachelor/bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, or wedding and reception.
Also as soon as we sat down, we were greeted by the hotel’s chef, Nick Amoriello, who joined us for a glass of wine. He made for a charming conversationalist and the food we enjoyed was incredible. Nick explained the dishes to us, how he found his was to Dallas – long story – and made sure our NYLO experience was top notch.
After a quick nap, we found our way back to the lounge later that night to discover that NYLO’s lounge literally turns into an outdoor nightclub on the weekends with DJ Julio, a piece of NYC in the heart of the Plano burbs!
