Feb 11, 2015  |   Contributor: Eric Rosen

Though it is a new brand, you might recognize the properties from Jason Pomeranc’s SIXTY Hotels group. That’s because the hotelier split with the Thompson group and launched his own new venture using some of the former Thompson hotels. The flagship is the former 60 Thompson, now the SIXTY SoHo, and as is fitting of a newly-launched brand, it is sporting a hot new look since reopening in the fall.

Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia: The Sheer Beauty of California's National Parks

Feb 10, 2015  |   Contributor: Cynthia Dial

Polished granite mountains, groves of giant sequoias and meadows of minuscule wildflowers, all beneath endless blue skies—this is California’s High Sierra mountain range. From Crescent Meadow’s colorful carpet to Mount Whitney’s windswept summit (the highest point in the 48 contiguous states), glaciers sculpt this landscape that is now home to Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. Though a multi-decade Californian, it was my first time in a setting so intense. I felt like James Earl Jones should be narrating my visit.

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. And while this swanky Southern hotel easily brings all the action within reach, it’s removed enough to offer a peaceful respite after a long day of sightseeing or night on the town.

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. Early advertisements boasted rooms with plastered soundproof walls, electric lights, steam heat, long distance phones and private bathrooms with both fresh and saltwater baths.

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

Farms aren’t typically too fancy. Or at least, they usually don't house a Michelin-starred chef, half a dozen concierges, three-course breakfasts, and private spa cabanas overlooking meticulous gardens. The Farmhouse Inn is, however, one such fancy and indulgent farm (if you can even call it that).

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.
