Ok, so I decided to give-in to all the emails and calls I receive from friends asking me about my favorite hotels because they are just planning their vacation. -As I run a travel search - they tend to look up to me. I do travel myself a bit and I am a user as well. Not sure if it is ethical( well if it isn't- then post a comment) But:::::::
Below is my personal highly subjective and not exhaustive list.
I have stayed as anonymous guest and paid a full fare for each of them. I like each of them because of some unique features that are important to me either for my business trips or for my personal trips.
I will be updating this list ( the order is simply by just what comes to my mind at any given time )- here goes the first:
Brazil - San Paolo Hotel Unique- the hotel is truly Unique - from the outside design and Lobby interior ( lots of Starck works there) to rooms design, to faboulous top deck and swimming pool and impeccable service!
Speaking of Sao Paulo I cannot stop myself from mentioning couple of faboulous restaurants I tried there- that should be almost a separate post in itself!
London- Soho Hotel
The hotel is both modern and Cozy. Each room is individually decorated and apparently the owner is personally involved in choosing the style and details to create relaxing atmosphere.
The room are very good size. The concierge and the employees are very attentive.
Library, Drawing room and restaurant good for meetings and hanging out. Definitely try afternoon tea !!
It is a sister Hotel to Charlottes Hotel- also amazing an amazing property.
Buenos Aires ( Argentina) - I have tried few hotels here so stayed tuned I will be writing up moreFaena Hotel- Dramatic entry and truly impressive entry corridor. Go there even just for drinks! Rooms are feng shui and very comfy.
