Jan 29, 2015  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

Located only a short walk to the famous French Quarter, the newly reimagined Le Méridien New Orleans is just the place to kick off your exploration of the Big Easy’s legendary culture and cuisine. A $29 million redesign concluding early 2015 seamlessly blends the brand’s European roots with the vibrancy of the property’s new home in downtown.

Jan 27, 2015  |   Contributor: Steve Mirsky

Apparently game hunting was all the rage in wealthy Bostonian circles back in 1914. That's when Cape Cod's Chatham Bars Inn made its debut as a semi-private hunting lodge.

Pier South Resort Sets the Stage for Imperial Beach's New Eco-Tourist Scene

Jan 27, 2015  |   Contributor: Courtney Driver

As the most south-westerly city in the United States, Imperial Beach is the one of the last stops in San Diego before hitting the San Ysidro Border going into Mexico. Not well known as a tourist spot, the area is mostly residential and fairly sleepy; a typical California beach town. And while the oceanfront does have a bit of a main “drag,” with beach bars and the new Pier South Resort, IB is really about the more natural elements: the quiet, sand, waves and nearby nature reserves.

From Butchering Classes to Alfalfa Treatments, Sonoma's Fanciest Farm Has a Genuine Farm-to-Table Ethos

Jan 23, 2015  |   Contributor: Katherine Bond

You Can Finally Jump in Bed With Richard Branson at His Virgin Hotel Chicago

Jan 16, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

We've been waiting for quite awhile to finally get in bed with Sir Richard Branson and now it can finally happen. The aviation mogul's very first Virgin Hotel opened yesterday in Chicago and shocker, it's pretty darn amazing. Looking less like a hotel and more like the super cool home of Christian Grey, it's everything we've come to expect from Branson—meaning it fills us with a joy generally reserved for Charlie Bucket as he enters the chocolate factory for the first time.

InterContinental Toronto Yorkville Shines in One of the City's Swankiest Neighborhoods

Jan 14, 2015  |   Contributor: Maria Yates

Before 2015 rolled in, I took my yearly pilgrimage to Yorkville, which is, without a doubt, one of Toronto's swankiest areas. It's also my personal favorite city in the vicinity. Any time of the year Yorkville is trendy and glamorous, and maintains a small-village feel within a large metropolis. But during the month of December, with the extra twinkling of festive lights, it is especially attractive and romantic.
