At Sloane in London

02 . 22 . 24

A certain British interior designer has been decorating hotels all over Paris so it feels only fitting that a French interior has just designed the chicest and buzziest new hotel in London. At Sloane is a new hotel in Chelsea from Jean-Louis Costes, the man behind Hotel Costes, and Cadogan Estates who tapped legendary interior […]

If you’ve walked down Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris in the past few years, you might have noticed a renovation project happening by Chopard. It was actually for their newly polished gem, 1 Place Vendôme, a five-star hotel located in an 18th-century six-story mansion that was originally designed for Louis XIV’s secretary Pierre Perrin. Paris-based architecture […]

It is a bit exciting that so many new hotels are opening in Paris and now you can add Le Grand Mazarin to that list. The 50 rooms and 11 suites that look like they take their color schemes directly from a box of Ladurée macarons. They were designed by London based interior designer Martin […]

The Saint James and Relais Christine hotels in Paris are beloved by guests and now the group behind them have just opened a new hotel, Hôtel Norman. Billed as “open, vibrant, lively”, the hotel which opened today has a younger and more contemporary look for its 37 rooms and suites located at 9 rue Balzac […]

Nondescript hotel decor that doesn’t reflect the city in which you are staying is anathema to me. Luckily, that definitely does not describe the J.K. Hotel Paris. I’ve been aware of the hotel since before it opened but I’m so glad I stopped by to see my friend Callie Stanton who was staying at the […]

Last week, many of my followers on Instagram were lamenting that a lot hotels in Paris are already booked up for this year. Lucky for all of you, I can announce that the new Château des Fleurs five-star hotel will be opening on 14 April 2023. I don’t think anyone else knows about yet so […]

I waited all summer for September to arrive and I can’t believe it’s already over. Time flies when you are having fun! New York is back and even better than our pre-pandemic days. There are new restaurant and store openings, premiers and parties happening all over town. There are also so many television shows filming […]

Nine Orchard

06 . 22 . 22

I love living uptown but we are seriously lacking in the hotel department. That’s why I’m very jealous of the new hotel, Nine Orchard, that just opened downtown. DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners has transformed a 12-story Lower East Side Beaux-Arts landmark building into an elegant hotel and culinary destination. Originally built in 1912, the […]

Cour des Vosges

02 . 13 . 22

While I was working on my posts about the film France and 24 Place des Vosges, I came across a very chic hotel. Cour des Vosges sits at 19 Place des Vosges and is the only hotel with views of the square from every room. The 17th-century historic site is known as the Hôtel de […]

When I visit Paris, I usually rent an apartment because I tend to stay at least 10 days. But I always keep a list of hotels for recommendations and will be adding the new Château Voltaire to the list when it opens in mid October. It is located in the 1st arrondissement which is quite […]

Have you always wondered what it would be like to live at Versailles? Well, now you can get your chance at the newly opened five-star Le Grand Contrôle Hotel from the Airelles hotel group which sits within the gates of Versailles. Le Grand Contrôle was built in 1681 by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, Louis XIV’s favourite architect […]

I’ve mentioned many times how hard it’s been not being able to travel or even go to a museum for inspiration in New York since the pandemic began. We are so lucky that we were able to flatten the curve and now many of us are feeling more comfortable venturing father afield. Last weekend, I […]

Mayflower Inn and Spa

07 . 23 . 20

Everyone is upset that Americans can’t travel outside the country now but luckily, there are a lot of wonderful places to go within driving distance of New York City. The Mayflower Inn and Spa in Washington, Connecticut has always had wonderful reputation but it became an even more luxurious retreat when Auberge Resorts took over […]

I saw photos of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Upper Michigan on Instagram last year and immediately put it on my must visit list. When I asked Michelle Adams who moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan about going to visit the hotel, she said it was a long drive from her house which meant […]

Castello di Potentino

03 . 26 . 19

I fell in love with the story of Castello di Potentino in T Magazine this weekend. If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a villa in Tuscany, this story is a bit of a cautionary tale of just how much work it can take to bring back a “bedraggled historic estate” to its former glory. Charlotte […]

Beaverbrook Hotel

01 . 10 . 19

The Beaverbrook Hotel is a luxury British country house hotel in Surrey that makes me want to book a flight to England immediately. Beaverbrook takes it’s name from Lord Beaverbrook, William Maxwell Aitken, 1st Baron Beaverbrook, a “Canadian-British newspaper publisher and backstage politician who was an influential figure in British media and politics of the first half of […]

I’ve never been to New Orleans so I’ve been thinking of planning a trip this winter. Now that the Hotel Peter and Paul has just opened, I have even more motivation to visit The Big Easy. The hotel, restaurant, cafe, bar, library, and event space are located in an abandoned group of 19th-century buildings that […]
