Hotels I Really Want to Visit
Staying in old-school, proper hotels has been my favorite pastime since I was a kid. They totally enthrall me and I am constantly looking forward to the next one. Here's the bucket list...
- •Colombe D'Or, Saint-Paul de Vence, FranceThis 1920's cafe-turned-hotel in Provence boasts one of the best art collections in the world because artists like Picasso, Matisse, and Miró traded artwork to pay their tabs.
- •Le Sireneuse, AmalfiLooks stunningly beautiful and has its own parfumerie.
- •Post Ranch Inn, Big SurI've been to Big Sur many times but have never been able to shell out the cash to stay at this architectural gem. Someday...
- •Ocean View Club, Harbour IslandTotally secluded and under the radar. Perfect for a week of drinking rum and getting lost on the beach.
- •Hotel Lungarno, FlorenceWhen I studied abroad in Florence, this was on my daily walk and I fell completely in love with this charming, old-school European hotel.
- •Crosby Street Hotel, NYCBecause I get energy from being in beautifully-designed rooms.
- •The Carlisle Hotel, NYCSo many reasons.
- •Cheval Blanc, St. BarthI ate lunch here once and totally swooned over the entire hotel. It's crazy expensive and owned by LVMH but still... Every detail is perfect.
- •Soniat House, New OrleansBecause I am a sucker for courtyards, terraces, and French doors.
- •Claridge's, LondonSets the bar for old-school, swanky, European hotels, which is, incidentally, my favorite type.
- •The Beverly WilshireI've had the chance to stay in many great hotels in LA, but this place feels like a classic. Joan Didion's choice.
- •Bowery Hotel, NYCMostly to hang out at the bar and order from the bangin room service menu.
- •Park Hyatt, TokyoBecause I am a cinephile.
- •The Raleigh, MiamiMostly because of Instagram, if I'm being honest.
- •Poetry Inn, NapaSupposed to be the best in Napa.
- •The Ritz, ParisJust for one night, for nostalgia's sake.
