There are lots of great things happening in March—from Women’s History Month to St. Patrick’s Day. To celebrate, we’re showing you some of our favorite places around the world for women to travel on their own, including great cities and relaxation destinations as well as how to have an amazing weekend in Dublin, Ireland. And with spring still a few weeks away, we’re still dreaming of warm-weather trips. If you’re looking for inspiration, our F1S insider Marisa tells us why Aruba is a great place for young families.

Fans of Soho’s Crosby Street Hotel will be thrilled with the opening of The Whitby, its new ‘sister’ in Midtown. We were among the first to see the British-based boutique hotel on W. 56th Street last week.
Once again designer Kit Kemp’s inimitable style is on display everywhere. Eye-catching and eclectic fabrics, colors, and textures rule. Attention to detail is everywhere from her specially commissioned “Friendly Flowers” curtains in the Orangerie to the colorful thread-loom installation on the lobby ceiling.
The hotel features 86 individually appointed rooms and suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows, many with private terraces. A dedicated events floor incudes a 130-seat state-of-the-art cinema.
Guests have the exclusive use of a beautiful drawing room off the lobby. A dedicated butler adds to the posh experience. There’s even an honest bar for guests to serve themselves.
Also off the lobby is the bright and airy Whitby Bar and Restaurant, which will feature modern American fare.
