My Ultimate Escape

How many times have you fantasized about being rich and famous? Living as a
famous rock star or actor, signing autographs for your fans? Staying in the
finest hotels and private residences in the world. Walking down the red carpet at
the Oscars, with flashbulbs popping, fans screaming your name, and paparazzi
clamoring around you to get the perfect shot for the magazines and newspapers?

Well, now you can actually experience the feeling of being one of the elite and
famous crowd every time you vacation without having to worry about being in
the public eye. As a member of
Ultimate Escapes, an exclusive luxury
destination club, you’ll be able to vacation in 100+ beautiful private residences in
over 40 resort and metropolitan locations – Tuscany,  Maui, Beaver Creek,
Costa Rica, Los Cabos, Miami and so many more!  You'll enjoy five-star
service, pampering and catering to your every wish and desire. And your
private, luxurious "superstar" experience is personalized for you by the Ultimate
Escapes staff. Read on to hear about my recent experience – it was fabulous!

Last week, this very lucky writer had the opportunity to see what it’s like to be
an Ultimate Escapes  member right here in my own hometown of New York.
My first escape was at one of the Ultimate Escapes homes located in The
Trump International at 1 Central Park West, a 52-story glass tower with floor to
ceiling window views of Central Park, Columbus Circle and the gothic
skyscrapers that surround the park. The excitement was building as the
limousine slowly cruised down Central Park West in the sixties. Two doormen
greeted me when I arrived and escorted me into the lobby of this incredible
residence hotel. Venus, my Escape Planner who outlined and arranged my
ultimate escape, covered everything from Broadway show tickets to dinner at
Jean-Georges, a five-star award-winning restaurant just steps from the lobby.  
She also gave me a long list of other events and services offered, including
room service and the option to stock the fully equipped kitchen of the two-
bedroom suite with champagne, chocolate, wine, flowers, gourmet foods or
anything that my heart desired.

As a jaded New Yorker used to attending swanky invitation-only parties at
exclusive Manhattan locations, I thought I had seen everything and looked at
this as just another cool place to write about. I was so wrong. Instead I was
filled with a burning desire to live like this as often as possible. I had the feeling
of being majestic, special, and part of the elite without having to deal with any
of the pretentious people that make up that crowd.  This was a far more private
venue than any I’d experienced, and my guests, a few writers and artists who
work with me at, were content and entertained
An exciting addition to the Trump was the pool and spa, and I looked forward
to a swim and a visit to the wet or dry sauna rooms, being that I arrived a little
late in the evening.

My guests and I decided to dine in, listen to music and drink plenty of
champagne while sitting in some of the most comfortable couches and living
quarters that I have ever seen. After several glasses of champagne and hors d’
oeurvres, we all strolled into Central Park across the street from the Trump and
enjoyed the beautiful weather. When we returned to the room, one of the
writers discovered one of two huge bathtubs with water jets and exclaimed that
he had to have a bath, and he did while the rest of us continued to enjoy the
living room area which overlooked the park.  I can truly understand why this
New York venue is one of the favorite of Ultimate Escapes destination club

In the morning I decided to take a brisk swim and have a hot sauna followed by
a shower. Afterwards, I stepped into the business area of the hotel and took
care of some work-related tasks in the hotel’s business conference area fully
equipped with computers printers and any office supplies you may need.

Ultimate Escapes has a special offer for The New York Optimist visitors to try
