Travel + Leisure says..."This Southwest-style resort, made of low-slung adobe casitas in central Arizona’s Boynton Canyon, blends into the iconic red-rock cliffs of Sedona, a town known for its artsy, New Age vibe. Opened in 1987 and set on 70 acres, Enchantment’s 218 rooms and suites (fresh from a renovation in 2012) look out onto undulating canyon walls and green cottonwood trees, while neutral interiors are inspired by the surrounding terrain and are filled with accents that refer to local Native American culture (kiva fireplaces; area rugs inspired by traditional basket-weaving). Within Enchantment’s grounds, but separate from the main complex— also home to several pools, six tennis courts, pitch-and-putt golf, and hiking trails—is the transformative Mii Amo, a 24,000-square-foot destination spa with 16 casitas as well as a dedicated pool and regionally inspired restaurant. A three-, four-, or seven-day stay at Mii Amo—or a “Journey,” as it’s called—is priced on an all-inclusive basis (accommodation, spa treatments, and meals), while Enchantment guests can book treatments on an à la carte basis.~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."This former private ranch surrounded by pine trees in Red Rock Country offers an “unbeatable experience,” with “great family programs and Native American teachings.” Rustic adobe casitas have beehive fireplaces and Southwestern furnishings that are “in keeping with the location and theme.” Decks open to views of Boynton Canyon that will “take your breath away.” The “superb, customer-oriented staff are great,” and the property recently went through a renovation, upgrading all rooms. Expect “spotty cell phone reception, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing!” Che-Ah-Chi has floor-to-ceiling windows with 180-degree views of the surroundings, and Southwest-accented American cuisine, hence dishes like buffalo tenderloin and baby carrots." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

Luxurious accommodations include tented suites featuring four-poster beds graced with duvets and plaid accent fabrics. Colonial furnishings in all and outdoor showers in some bring a sense of history and location to this safari outpost.

This hotel says...

Sitting atop the famed Spanish Steps with the glory of ancient Rome below it, the Hassler Roma artfully blends Swiss elegance runed by its Owner and General Manager, Roberto E. Wirth, and service with the best of warm Italian hospitality. The Hassler Roma s 82 rooms and 13 suites overlook Piazza di Spagna, the Spanish Steps, and the Villa Borghese gardens, offering a unique panoramic view over the Eternal City.

Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."An 1893 institution on the Spanish Steps, "it's by far the best location in Rome." Individually designed rooms are filled with art, antiques, Venetian lamps, Limoges porcelain, and trompe l'oeil paintings. In spring 2010, one wing was updated with new decor and larger closets. Imago's panorama of the Eternal City accompanies inventive dishes such as cuttlefish on a "potato cloud." -From Conde Nast Traveler

Conde Nast Traveler says..."What’s Rome without the Hassler?” Atop the Spanish Steps, this 1893 institution has “the absolute best view over the historical heart of Rome.” The sixth-floor restaurant, Imàgo, has panoramic vistas and serves regional cuisine. Interiors are in shades of ocher, red, and cream, while individually designed rooms have Limoges porcelain, velvet headboards, and Venetian lamps. The seventh-floor Penthouse has a beige C-shaped sofa, a walnut-paneled sitting room, and a 1,700-square-foot terrace with expansive Eternal City views. “The elegance, sophistication, friendliness, and warmth can be seen and felt here.” “Staff are incredible, especially the concierge.”~From cntraveler.com

Travel + Leisure says...Grace Kelly honeymooned at this turn-of-the-century palace at the top of the Spanish Steps, and it's still the hotel of choice for many of today's celebs and stylish tastemakers in search of old-world elegance (Gwyneth, TomKat, and Victoria Beckham are all regulars). Renowned for its personalized service, the Hassler is a family affairaa place where guest relations are taken very seriously. The 95 stately rooms are a checklist of classic good taste, with elaborate moldings, gilded furniture, French silks, 16th-century antiques, Limoges porcelain, playful frescoes, and marble, marble, marble, plus mod cons like flat-screen TV's. Imgo, its modern Italian restaurant, has heart-stopping views of St. Peter's Basilica and Rome's terracotta-tiled roofs. And the concierges can accommodate just about any request, including mapping out routes through the Villa Borghese gardens, near the hotel." -From Travel + Leisure

Juicy Tidbits

Juicy Hotels says..."The Hotel Bel Air is a cool combo of Hollywood star power bling and comfortably welcoming and friendly. You don't HAVE to be someone to stay here, thank goodness, because the property is absolutely lovely. Every pore of this recently renovated beauty oozes history and charm. It's well worth doing some reading on the property about its illustrious past.

While the rooms are so lovely it's hard to peel yourself out of them, peel out you must to enjoy the jewel box pool, outdoor terrace restaurant and in the evening, do NOT miss the bar. If you come back from your evening exhausted or are just ramping up to head out…seriously, this is a bar not to be missed. Friendly bartenders shake up mean concoctions in unique style and will help suggest fun things to try. The people watching, it must be said, is over the top, but in an understated way.


The onsite La Prarie Spa is gorgeous and well worth booking a signature treatment.

The grounds are simply spectacular, with rooms spilling into canyons, hillsides, clustered in little enclaves some with private patios, private hot tubs and wood buring fireplaces. The recent renovations have brought this timeless beauty into the modern world without losing it's historical charm. This is a truly Juicy property and one not to be missed if you are looking for something special in Los Angeles. ~Laura van Hoff, Editor, JuicyHotels.com


Travel + Leisure says..."What sets the Bel-Air apart is its sense of sanctuary; despite the property’s relatively large size (12 acres), the warm staff, the cozy Spanish Mission-style architecture, and the old-world gestures like complimentary tea service in the lobby lounge create an intimate ambience. The 103 uniquely decorated rooms all have luxurious, understated touches; many include fireplaces. Those with private patios are tucked behind walls covered with cascading bougainvillea, flowering shrubs, and giant California oaks. Lunching on the Bel-Air terrace, while gazing over the swan pond and pretending not to notice the Oscar winner at the next table, is a decades-old L.A. pleasure. ~From Travelandleisure.com
