Have you guys heard about A Hotel Life? It’s my new favorite website to peruse for dream vacation ideas and travel eye-candy. It’s an editorial site that focuses on hotel reviews that are presented with an insider’s view. It’s like looking at your friend’s shots of their luxury vacation and getting their first hand tips and recommendations—except the people are famous and oh-so-stylish. Case in point: the latest addition is the Chateau Marmont reviewed by Yigal Azrouel. They give you all the “important bits” – best way to book, price, number of rooms, vibe, whether you should bring kids or not, whether there is a bar or restaurant or not. With it, they also include the Must Dos in the area – for example: Waris Ahluwalia and his favorite boutique hotel in Paris. He recommends where to go while you’re there, like Cafe Flore or Jardin du Luxembourg, and the Must Haves are there too: what to wear and take with you for that city, that lifestyle, that hotel.
I adore it. You also get a little bit of an inside peek into these glamorous jet-setters lives. They tell you who they went with and why there were there. Love that kind of US Weekly information. Some day, I will take one of those recommendations and see one of these glorious hotels and cities for myself!
The Raleigh Hotel, Miami Beach
