dog day afternoon

August 26th, 2014

In honor of National Dog Day, we’ve decided to let our blog go to the dogs, much like the VIP treatment at some hotels…

WOOF Cottages, Nantucket

The Woof Cottages at The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin welcomes its furriest guests with Draper Canine beds, welcome basket of treats and toys, personalized pet tags, doggie turndown, walking, and more.


Park Hyatt

From Argentina to Chicago, most Park Hyatt hotels offer fido friendly amenities.  In the newly opened Park Hyatt Vienna, the concierge recommends local walking hotspots and the kitchen is happy to prepare a special meal.  Park Hyatt New York has also gotten into (dog)bed with Friends of Finn.


Cliveden House, Berkshire, England

No better place to treat a pooch like royalty than the English Countryside and Cliveden House offers more than 250 acres of dog-walking woodland paths with views of the Thames.

world’s best pools

August 19th, 2014

When it comes to the pools we dip in, we prefer ones hanging in the Costa Rican rainforest or perched on a mountain range in Jamaica. Or anything at all like these:

1. Aventurine healing waters at UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa

2. Swimming with Pitons Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort

3. The high life at Strawberry Hill

4. Treetop swimming at Nayara Springs

5. 100 meters of awesome at Point Yamu by COMO

6. Desert oasis at Park Hyatt Dubai

7. Dripping in gold at Park Hyatt Vienna

8. Birds-eye view from the rooftop at Park Hyatt Sydney

9. Soaking up Low Cay Beach at GoldenEye

10. Sunset sailing and swim on Crystal Cruises











stepping out

August 7th, 2014

Harper’s Bazaar just called on the “in” shoes of this season and next. We feel utterly compelled to decide precisely where they should be shown off.  Read on to see where we’ll be taking these styles first…


Isabel Marant

See and be seen during fashion week next month at Park Hyatt New York.


Proenza Schouler

The only thing hotter than wearing these out, is wearing them at Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach.


Saint Laurent

Stroll the galleries of SITE Santa Fe in these cowgirl-chic booties before heading over to Inn on the Alameda for a southwestern-style evening.

Sophia Webster

Polka dots were meant for Paris and these shoes were meant for Pavillon de la Reine.

Stella McCartney

These “sneakers” scream Tokyo high design, much like Park Hyatt Tokyo.


“Beautifully Boyish,” wear these at The Living Room cigar and whiskey lounge at the new Park Hyatt Vienna.


Wear a work of art in a work of art, such as the ROOM suite by Antony Gormley at The Beaumont.

Laurence Dacade

A disco ball has nothing on these boots shining brighter than the London city lights; wear them at The Halkin by COMO.

Delpozo shoes

Classic, timeless beauty, sounds just like Belmond trains to us.



Gianvito Rossi

These chic suede boots will be fall’s best accessory at Flavor! Napa Valley. Reservations at The Restaurant at Meadowood anyone?
