We’re taking a leave of absence this issue. Maybe a winter getaway at the Grand Geneva or a sartorial sabbatical with Topshop isn’t your cup of tea? But the little time you do have to spare can be spent on some serious relaxation and mental repose—right in your own city! Sometimes an hour (or three) of pampering and self-serving beauty treatments is just the type of quickie we need to get turbocharged to make you feel like you’ve just taken a very energizing trip.
above: THE POOL AT THE PENINSULA—HELLO, LUXURY!
We’ve got splurge and steal options for you to enjoy the best of the best in the city. Swap your cable knit for an eye mask, sit back and relax—it’s time to do a little spacation staycation.
