Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."This sprawling beach-house-style inn looks like it was airlifted from Nantucket and dropped on the Santa Monica shore. Inside, the common areas (like the fireside lounge with chairs and sofas upholstered in seashell colors) and the 198 rooms (all with subtle blue and yellow accents, four-poster beds, walnut furniture, and custom linens) reinforce the laid-back, summer-house vibe. But there’s real luxury here too: The on-site spa offers organic body treatments by Red Flower and facials by Omorovicza, and the nautically-themed One Pico restaurant serves exceptional seafood dishes such as wild snapper with housemade cous cous ~From Travelandleisure.com.

Travel + Leisure says..."Nantucket-style shingled property, centrally located along Santa Monica Beach, that offers the perks of a luxury hotel along with a laid-back beach-house vibe.Rooms to Book: Ocean View rooms are worth the $105 upgrade for their idyllic views and proximity to the surf (you'll wake up to it every morning). The Presidential Suites have two balconies apiece and with this location, they're actually worth the hefty $3,500 price tag per night.Insider Tip: Order one of the organic tequilas, vodkas, or beers at Coast, the beachside cafe. This sprawling beach-house-style inn looks like it was airlifted from Nantucket and dropped on the Santa Monica shore. Inside, the common areas (like the fireside lounge with chairs and sofas upholstered in seashell colors) and the 198 rooms (all whitewashed wood and blue-and-white patterned upholstery, with wicker-furnished balconies) reinforce the laid-back, summer-house vibe. But there's real luxury here too: The on-site ONE spa offers decadent massages, facials, and body scrubs using Ole Henriksen products, and at the nautically-themed One Pico restaurant, chef Michael Reardon serves elegant seafood dishes like Petrale sole grilled whole with salt and bay leaves."-From www.travelandleisure.com

This hotel says...

Voted Top Ten Hotels in the World in Conde Nast Travelers Readers Choice Awards 2009/2010/2011. 21c Museum Hotel in Louisville is the first of its kind--a 90-room hotel dedicated to world-class luxuries Southern-style hospitality and contemporary art from living artists. Nestled in the heart of Museum Row and downtown Louisville 21c is an epicenter for culture activity and artistic expression.

Juicy Tidbits

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

This hotel says...

Amangani is located on a high mountain valley in North West Wyoming. Nearly 7000 feet above sea level, it looks across to the Grand Teton Pass. Perched atop East Gros Ventre Butte, Amangan's unique location offers panoramic views of the snow-capped peaks around Grand Teton National Park.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Cliff-top hotel with staggering Teton views, Asian-inspired platform beds, and large soaking tubs. " ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."You think you are riding up into the clouds” as you arrive at this “unmatched resort” overlooking the Snake River and the Grand Teton mountain range from its perch atop a butte. The rooms “exceed all expectations” with their deep soaking tubs, metal fireplaces, and floor-to-ceiling windows, and provide “much-needed comfort after long days spent enjoying the outdoors.” The “Zen decor” of Pacific redwood walls, Oklahoma sandstone columns, and a neutral palette gives it a “hushed but elegant feel. It integrates into the local landscape.” Try the American fare at The Grill, or gaze at the “killer views” while soaking in the quartzite-tiled outdoor pool, maintained at 80 degrees year-round. The service “makes you feel very pampered—you are not a room number, you are a VIP guest.”~From CondeNastTraveler.com

This hotel says...

Amangiri has been designed to blend into the landscape of Canyon Point in Southern Utah, with natural hues, materials and textures as a feature of the design. The structures are commanding and in proportion with the scale of the natural surroundings, yet provide an intimate setting from which to view and appreciate the landscape. Arrival to the resort is via a winding road that descends into the valley and leads to the central Pavilion. Built around the main swimming pool, the Pavilion embraces a dramatic stone escarpment. Within the Pavilion is the Living Room, Gallery, Library, Dining Room, Private Dining Room and Cellar. Two accommodation wings lead from the Pavilion into the desert: 16 suites are located within the North Wing and another 16 suites together with the Aman Spa are located within the South Wing. Outward views from the resort look over the untouched valley surrounded by lofty bluffs.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Encircled by dramatic, earth-colored rock formations, Aman Resorts’ second North American property is hidden away on 600 acres of Utah wilderness alongside eroded hoodoos and 5,000-year-old petroglyphs. In its squat cement buildings, each color-matched to mirror the subtleties of the landscape, you’ll find 34 suites that frame breathtaking views of the sculpted sandstone. A 25,000-square-foot spa has hydrotherapy treatments and generous spaces for yoga and Pilates. Meals are served in the wood-and-stone-accented dining room, which overlooks a dramatic pool that wraps around a huge boulder. At night, after a dinner of roasted elk with cherry sauce, the region’s stillness seems somehow musical, a soundless evocation of the American West." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Travel + Leisure says..."Staking a claim to 600 remote acres of Utah’s vast desert landscape, this exclusive resort guarantees coveted alone time—at a price—and has attracted privacy-seeking celebs such as Brangelina. Thirty-four cement low-slung suites blend seamlessly with the dramatic sandstone formations. Twin rain showers, soaking tubs with uninterrupted views, and private outdoor desert lounges with fireplaces complete the ultra-modernist look. Laze poolside and gaze upon the dramatic 150-foot-high rock breaching the waters, or see the dramatic sights from helicopter or hot-air balloon rides." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Opened in 2009 in the center of the Grand Circle, this resort, designed to blend into the landscape, is located on a perfect-scoring 600 acres surrounded by the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, and Grand Staircase-Escalante. “It’s understated but absolute luxury in the desert.” Entry to each “spare but very comfortable” suite is via a private courtyard with a Douglas fir timber screen; inside, white stone floors and concrete walls complement rawhide furniture with natural timbers, blackened steel fittings, and light-colored cushions. Concertina glass doors open to a lounge with a fireplace and views of the natural landscape. “Staff are low-key, friendly, and attentive—but not always immediately on top of anticipating guests’ needs, such as towels by the pool.” The Dining Room uses locally sourced seasonal produce and has an open kitchen with a wood-fired oven that creates “spectacular food.” Activities are “excellent, from the outstanding via ferrata to a superb spa.” ~From cntraveler.com
