Conde Nast Traveler says..."Created from abandoned tobacco and bourbon warehouses, and doubling as a contemporary art museum with more than 9,000 square feet of exhibition space, this property has reclaimed-wood floors, hand-blocked linen upholstery, exposed brickwork and timber trusses, and glass transoms. “The art collection makes it such a fun place to stay.” “Unique and creative” guest rooms have Herman Miller chairs, high ceilings, pewter mint julep cups, Malin and Goetz bath products, and rubber ducks in bathtubs. Proof on Main’s menu is inspired by Italy and the American South, hence dishes like Marksbury Farm Bone-in Pork Chop or rye pasta carbonara, and a choice of more than 50 Kentucky bourbons, several bottled exclusively for the hotel. “It’s an incredible place for such a small city.'" ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

National Geographic Traveler says..."Contemporary art-filled boutique property behind several Main Street historic iron facades. Gallery-minimal interiors showcase rotating art exhibits. Pre-programmed iPods, mint julep cups; two rooms boast terraces. Kentucky bison, rabbit, and produce in the restaurant. 91 rooms.

"Conde Nast 2009 Gold List 2009 says..."Doubling as a contemporary art museum, this "very hip hotel" in a refurbished warehouse has exposed brickwork and original timber trusses coupled with "urban, sleek, clean lines." Rooms have 500-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets, and rubber ducks in the baths. At Proof on Main, try country ham fritters or Kentucky bison and choose from 50 bourbons. The artwork is "cutting-edge, stimulating, thought-provokinga metaphor for the hotel itself."

Conde Nast Traveler says..."It's difficult to describe the uniqueness of this hotel," the top-scoring Gold List property in the United States. Created from abandoned tobacco and bourbon warehouses, the property features reclaimed-wood floors, hand-blocked linen upholstery, and glass transoms, "striking design that mixes old and new to stunning effect"a9,000 square feet of exhibition space are a backdrop to the revolving collection of contemporary art. Guest rooms have high ceilings, Herman Miller chairs, exposed brick walls, and silver mint julep cups. Proof on Main cooking is inspired by Italy and the American South, hence dishes like handmade tonnarelli, and sides like simmered grits; its selection of Kentucky bourbons includes some bottled exclusively for the restaurant." -From Conde Nast Traveler

Travel + Leisure says..."Louisville’s 21c ranks as a bona fide cultural institution in the making, not just a hotel with art. Designed by New York architect Deborah Berke, the 90-room property houses a multi-million dollar collection of paintings, sculptures, photos, and video installations by living artists (hence the hotel’s name, a reference to the 21st century). Most of the art comes from the personal collection of owner and philanthropist Steve Wilson and his wife, Laura Lee Brown. Occupying five 19th-century brick buildings, 21c showcases Berke’s spare-but-polished industrial style of exposed-brick walls and bead-board ceilings. Old poplar floorboards were turned into bar fronts, and recycled carpet backing became the bar’s floor. ~From Travelandleisure.com

Travel + Leisure says..."1832 Gothic Revival château on a sprawling parcel of parkland that includes a Robert Trent Jones Sr.–designed golf course. " ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Surrounded by medieval ruins and castles and hidden by the Maigue River and a barricade of trees, this nineteenth-century neo-Gothic manor is “a photographer’s dream.” With a village just beyond the grounds, authentic Irish pubs are within reach. The “fairy-tale setting” includes rooms with lush fabrics and marble bathrooms. Seek out the condos—“they’re spacious and modern and have every amenity.” “Staff make sure you’re well taken care of,” while “the golf course is world-class.” At the Carriagehouse Restaurant, the food is “tasty and addictive.” Go to the wood-paneled Oakroom, overlooking the river, for dinner by candlelight." ~From cntraveler.com

This hotel says...

Beautifully situated on the edge of the Borghese Gardens and close to the famous Via Veneto and Spanish Steps, one of The Leading Hotels of the World, the Aldrovandi Palace is an excellent starting point to visit the wonders of Rome or to easily reach the commercial centre. This splendid palace, built at the end of the 19th century and surrounded by its own pine tree park, was once one of the most exclusive girls' college in Rome. The hotel has recently been renovated, respecting its aesthetic and architectural criteria and represents today one of the most exclusive and comfortable examples of Italian tradition in hospitality. The rooms are distinguished by fine furnishings, air conditioning, radio, satellite color television, direct dial telephone and minibar. The twelve elegant suites are furnished with antiques which allow you to imagine the inestimable furnishings of the wonderful Royal Suite.

Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."This “intimate hotel that’s achingly gorgeous” sits between the greenery of the Borghese gardens and the Valle Giulia. “Beautifully put-together rooms” showcase traditional European design and have marble bathrooms with mosaics, as well as mirror TVs. The 1,620-square-foot Royal Suite, on the penthouse floor, has a separate living room, a capacious dressing room, and large windows that look out onto the private gardens and the pool. Chef Oliver Glowig serves contemporary Italian cuisine." ~From cntraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."The posh Alvear Palace Hotel, which celebrated its 80th birthday in 2012, recalls Buenos Aires’s Europhile past. Afternoon tea in the L'Orangerie restaurant combines English tradition with Argentina’s obsession for sweets (try the Alvear Cake, smothered in dulce de leche); chef Jean Paul Bondoux’s La Bourgogne serves the city’s best French cuisine (using Argentine ingredients); the design is pure Louis XV; and even the bathroom amenities are French (custom-made for the hotel by Parisian designer Hermès). A top-to-bottom 2011 remodeling dropped the room count from 210 to 191, expanding room size, adding a new Grand Suite, and installing hydromassage bathtubs and LCD TVs in the bathrooms. Service remains top-notch: a bilingual butler assists guests with everything from unpacking and ironing to drawing a bath." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."It's "class all the way" at this "old-world Belle E�?Âpoque landmark" with soaring ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and Corinthian columns near Recoleta Cemetery. Built in 1932, it has rooms designed in Louis XIV and Louis XVI style, with silk drapes, Empire-style furniture, and paintings by Argentine artists. The cuisine is French at La Bourgogne, while L'Orangerie y el Jardin d'Hiver serves a breakfast buffet that's "a real treat" and afternoon tea with white-gloved waiters. The spa has a trompe l'oeil mural." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com
