Treated Like a Princess at LOTTE Palace

March 29, 2016
by Cari Stein
Executive Producer
 
Women are a growing market for the hospitality industry.  A recent article found an increase in female millionaires and billionaires, yes billionaires, is driving travel agencies, hotels and tour operators to focus on “wellness” holidays that combine business and work. Often they might even take their daughters with them.
 
Now I’m neither a millionaire nor a billionaire but I recently had the extreme pleasure of being treated like a princess for a night. It was at the LOTTE New York Palace, formerly a  renowned mansion and now one of the finest hotels in New York City.

As my biography of Doris Duke continues to simmer in the editing vats at Farrar, Straus—I imagine the editors there adding a bit of salt, scraping off a few grains of pepper—with a pub date of 2017, I must for my salvation begin to write—again.

Doris will be my fourteenth published work, but now I’m once more a raw upstart, a woman daring to intrude into the magic kingdom of creativity, where there are no dirty socks on the floor, no sinks full of food-caked dishes. There is only the terrifying other of the empty page; I write my first drafts by hand, with an ink pen that inevitably leaks, staining my right middle finger. When I see that stain in the midst of other activities and preoccupations, I know I have begun.
