Atlanta for the Untourist | Sponsored Content by W Atlanta - Midtown

Sep 27, 2016  |   Contributor: W Atlanta Midtown

These days, Midtown Atlanta is known as a bustling cultural center in a city that is as eclectic as it is metropolitan. In years past, however, this neighborhood was underutilized and unappealing to city-dwellers and visitors alike. From the 1970s to the present, local organizations such as the Midtown Alliance helped to shape it into the vibrant blend of businesses and hotspots that it is today. ... Read More

The Best Prohibition Cocktails in Chicago | Sponsored Content by The Gwen, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Chicago

Sep 21, 2016  |   Contributor: The Gwen, A Luxury Collection Hotel

Sep 14, 2016  |   Contributor: JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE

The sprawling City of Angeles has long been home to entertainment industry insiders and beach bums alike. The fabric of Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA), by contrast, has been considered a dead zone when compared to areas like Venice Beach or West Hollywood. More recently, however, the locale (which incorporates Little Tokyo, the Arts District, the Fashion District, and the Historic Core neighborhoods, just to name a few) is engaging in a cultural renaissance which promises to make it the thriving heartbeat of a newly realized urban metropolis....

The New Luxury V Palm Springs Resort

Sep 14, 2016  |   Contributor: Jill Weinlein

You’d probably never guess that the new luxury boutique hotel V Palm Springs was once a budget Travelodge when you walk into its lobby.
