New York has a lot of luxury hotels, but the St. Regis is truly the best in class. From the butlers who are on call 24/7 to the incredible King Cole Bar, this hotel offers every amenity a traveler could want. The location on 5th Avenue in midtown makes it prime position for getting around the city, and the beautiful guest rooms are the most amazing you will see in any NYC location.
One of the most stunning settings for any hotel in the world, the Post Ranch Inn offers breathtaking views over the pacific from the cliffs high above. Enjoy waking up in your "green" room (with no TV!) to the Pacific Ocean below. The spa offers fantastic options for relaxation, the restaurant is one of the best in California and the grounds are incredibly cool.
Miami is one of the liveliest cities in the US and the Edition Hotel is the most luxurious in town. The rooms are great, the pool scene is packed with celebrities and the amenities are some of the best around. The Jean George restaurant on-site has great food and there is an ice skating rink (in Miami!) in the basement, along with a bowling alley. Whether you are a family looking for a fun getaway or a couple looking for a romantic vacation, this hotel is a great option.
Dallas is a city like no other and the Rosewood Mansion is our favorite in the state of Texas. When you arrive at the Rosewood you are instantly blown away by what locals really mean when they say everything is "bigger" in Dallas. The parking lot is littered with Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Maseratis, and the hotel amenities live up to the clientele. The pool scene is great, the rooms beautiful and the food in the restaurant on-site is fantastic.
If you love wine and good food, then a trip to Napa Valley is a must. Napa offers one of the most beautiful settings in the world, and Auberge du Soliel is the best hotel in town. Overlooking beautiful vineyards, Auberge has two great restaurants, a fantastic pool and incredible rooms that often include a fireplace. Auberge embodies luxury and spending just a couple of days will be the most relaxing thing you can do. Our favorite thing about a Napa Valley vacation is the wineries and we would recommend that you check out Plumpjack, Robert Sinskey or Opus One.
