Quintessentially New York: The Quin Hotel and The Wayfarer Restaurant

Aug 12, 2014  |   Contributor: Katherine Bond

New York City never aspires to be anything but itself. Unlike Dubai, Shanghai or any newer cosmopolitan cities that grasp at designing parks, centers and buildings that look globally appealing, New York City loves its textured past. In fact, I go to New York City just for its celebrated history even though I admittedly also revel in its modern revampings.

The Cromwell: Vegas' Newest Boutique Hotel Proving Refined Luxury is Anything but Boring

Aug 4, 2014  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

Las Vegas is endlessly busy; the constant noise of slot machines buzzing in casinos, young party scenesters hitting pool parties and nightclubs, and travelers joyfully snapping shots of the bright city (with drink in hand) on their smartphones—it is always alive with excitement. While these are some of the reasons people visit, it can also be pretty draining.

The More Laid Back Las Vegas Experience for Travelers of All Ages

Aug 1, 2014  |   Contributor: Donald Herrera-Fairbairn  |  1 Comment

As the rare Italian, blueberry-infused beer slid flavorfully to the back of my throat, the cicerone for Public House at The Venetian in Las Vegas described the undeniably unique and especially bold flavors of the aptly named My Blueberry Nightmare. Hints of oak barrel aging and a spicy kick from hot chili confused my taste buds unlike any beverage I've ever experienced before. Imagine expecting a semi-sweet brew only to be confronted with a savory bitter flavor followed up by a punch of heat and a tart blueberry finish. It was nowhere near what I expected, yet I ended up thoroughly enjoying the new combination of tastes, which now stands as a perfect analogy for my entire trip to Las Vegas.

Aug 1, 2014  |   Contributor: Vicki Arkoff

There’s no better town in America for culinary adventure than New Orleans. With hundreds of fine dining and regional-cuisine restaurants, it’s tempting to do nothing but eat and drink yourself into a double-wide seat requirement for your flight home. No wonder Saveur magazine picked New Orleans as “The best food city in the nation,” last year.

The New Hard Rock Ibiza Sets a Five-Star Standard on the Sunny, Sexy Isle

Jul 31, 2014  |   Contributor: Jared Paul Stern

Think of Ibiza and the mind conjures images of all-night dance parties on the beach, neo-hippies and modern bohemians indulging in too much sun, sand and libations. Think of the Hard Rock Hotel and you probably picture a pool party in Vegas, perhaps with the same spirit of carefree abandon but different clothes (or lack thereof), and music. Now the two have merged with the opening of the new Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza, an impressive beachfront development that brings a new dimension to Ibiza’s burgeoning luxury hospitality scene.

The Value of a $1,500 Skin Treatment Program: In Search Of The Gold Orchid at the Waldorf Astoria's Guerlain Spa

Jul 31, 2014  |   Contributor: Susan Kime  |  1 Comment

I am one of the lucky ones, as I was introduced to the Guerlain brand when I was about five, and could actually smell my mother’s Shalimar perfume before she entered the room. It was a heady scent, of vanilla and other things I couldn’t yet name. But I associated Guerlain with Shalimar and Shalimar with her, for years.

Jul 30, 2014  |   Contributor: Cynthia Dial

What do you do when it’s pitch-perfect weather in San Diego? My choice was a bit unconventional, yet warmly rewarding. I headed 90 miles from home into the Anza-Borrego Desert for a stay at its most iconic and best known lodge, La Casa del Zorro. Upon arrival, our dash registered a temperature of 106 F, but I was not deterred.

Jul 30, 2014  |   Contributor: Vicki Arkoff

A steaming bowl of New England clam chowder at Legal Sea Food, a dozen freshly-shucked Native Cherrystones and Littleneck Oysters at Union Oyster House and a thin-crust Neapolitan at Pizzeria Regina in North End—these are all among Boston’s best bucket-list restaurants, ranking among some of the best regional cuisine in the country.

Moulin Rouge and Le Crazy Horse Provide Sizzling Parisian Entertainment

Jul 29, 2014  |   Contributor: Sean Hillen

After feasting on tasty patisseries, fine wines and French gourmet food, fancy something different in the City of Light? An evening’s entertainment at the Le Crazy Horse or Le Moulin Rouge in Paris might just be the ticket. The Féerie show at Le Moulin Rouge involves between around 40 male and female dancers on stage (often altogether) dressed (sometimes not so dressed) in costumes ranging from flamboyant ostrich feathers to transparent silk to colorful military uniforms. The performances make for a wonderful experience, transporting one back to the days of the late 19th century La Belle Époque and Henri... Read More
