Hi Upper East Siders, Gossip Girl here. If you’ve always dreamt of living that luxurious New York life (it’s giving Dan Humfrey Vibes) I’m here to tell you it’s possible. Remember the iconic Palace Hotel that Serena and her family lived in? Well, it’s a real hotel near St. Patrick’s Cathedral in the heart of midtown NYC. When I was 15 I lived out my Gossip Girl dreams with a 4 night stay and it was everything I ever dreamed of. The glamorous hotel is a bit pricier than it was back in 2015 but I’m here to say it’s worth every penny.
