The Art Deco landmark now offers indulgent spa therapies using diamonds and Champagne.
For those who argue that skincare is forever, the National’s new Ms. Taylor Facial is an anti-aging ritual that uses diamond-infused products to exfoliate and enrich the skin. The Marilyn Facial uses a Champagne sugar scrub and fresh strawberries, while An Affair to Remember Mani Pedi adds a Champagne sugar scrub to blueberry juice and soy yogurt to refresh skin. The Happily Ever After treatment is designed for brides, and combines a 20-minute refloxology session with a manicure, make-up application and hair appointment.
Since its 1939 opening, the National Hotel has hosted such bold-faced names as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, among others. It recently renovated the oceanview suites in its historic tower area. The Triplex, which will combine three one-bedroom suites beneath the hotel’s historic cupola, is also in the works.
