Chic Stays: NYC Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week is upon us and with so many gorgeous clothes to see, it's hard for a gal to turn down a summer trip to the Lincoln Center shows.

However, the hard part isn't picking the wardrobe or jet setting stat, but getting a coveted spot near the presentations. Don't fret, LadyLux is here to make sure you have a place to rest your head after a long day of runway-watching. These five luxurious hotels aren't only super chic but also offer stylish deals you can't pass up, especially if you're a gal on a gawk-and-shop mission this F/W season.
