Postcards tagged: Hotels We Love
NEGRIL, JAMAICA – A North American Indian-inspired compound in the middle of Negril? Enough said to get designer Geren Lockhart on the next plane to an island nation of the Greater Antilles.
PALMETTO, GA – You were the place that my locavore-preaching foodie friends, crickets-worshipping writer friends, and boonies-craving city friends could agree on.
WEST VIRGINIA – My daughter found an empty ballroom and started dancing on the stage. Suddenly, she saw her moving image on the surrounding walls. It was heaven for her.
FLORENCE, Italy – The location, the antiques, the canopy over the bed, the trattoria around the corner, the very grand Italianness of it all. Who wouldn't fall in love?
KRAKOW, Poland – You stood in the heart of Old Town, tucked just off the square, confident in a land of old and new. Once inside the Gothic structure, I knew I was in for something special.
PARIS, France – With a naughty chuckle he explains, "Madame Pompadour was fond of this glass because there was no stem. She preferred to stick it in her cleavage."
BUENOS AIRES – Kate Donnelly checks into the Home Hotel. It's comfortable and vintage, completely hip and totally unpretentious. She doesn't want to check out.
BAJA, MEXICO – The tropics, the calm, and the beach beckoned. But all she wanted was a jolt of energy.
PARIS – The private underground hammam pool is free for guests. Can you think of a better way to end a hard day in Paris than swimming naked in your secluded candlelit grotto?
AUSTIN, Texas – Lived-in leather Chesterfields, chandeliers hanging from trees, the old Jaguar parked in the middle of the property. You make it all look so effortless.
