Unwind, Breathe, & Relax at the Little River Inn - Hotel, Golf, and Spa

The perfect getaway awaited me at the Little River Inn located on the Mendocino Coast. I had heard many great things about the area from other travelers who have experienced the Mendocino coast but have never taken the initiative myself. The Little River Inn gave me the perfect Mendocino Coast experience that went well beyond my expectations. The aqua blue water reminded me of the color of the water at a tropical beaches of Hawaii or Big Sur.

Sao Paulo: Guest Urban Hotel

  Guest Urban Hotel is a boutique hotel located in a renovated 1960’s house in the bohemian / hipster Pinheiros neighborhood; defining it welcoming would be an understatement with its always smiling and helpful staff, the vintage furniture, unassuming but perfectly curated art gallery in the lobby and homey breakfast in the garden. The rooms are cozy,decorated in a NYC loft style (Soho circa early ‘90) with comfy bed and impeccable wifi and the service for the visiting tourist is amazingly well thought : tablets and cellphones are available for rent (European and US phone usually don’t work in South America or cost an eye and a leg per minute), information regarding what’s going on in town , bikes for rent , public transport cards and a very good eye for everything off the beaten track.

Hempel Hotel - London

Review and Photos by The Cobrasnake The Hempel is a really quiet hotel located in Paddington. It’s far away from everything. When you are inside it feels really relaxing. The reception is very quiet and clean -as is the rest of the hotel. The room was completely white. The bed was so big you could comfortably sleep 4 people. Perfect for a last minute late night orgy. Its kinda hard to find things because everything is located behind hidden doors which are also white.

Langham Hotel - London

Old world charm meets new world decadence at the Langham hotel in London. Langham London is an icon among London hotels, and rightly so. The legend of this hotel is true: impeccable service, restaurants, swimming pool and a full fitness center you won’t be disappointed. A walk through the lobby and halls will transform you back to the Victorian era with its elegant décor and poise. The hotel has undergone a complete refurbishment to the main areas and its 380 rooms, thus preserving the original details of the late 1800’s.

The Wellesley is a gorgeous luxury boutique hotel situated in London’s exclusive Knightsbridge area. What was formerly an iconic jazz bar in the 1920’s is now a beautifully art deco inspired hotel landmark. The hotel features an indoor/outdoor lounge, a restaurant and a very attentive staff. We spoke with the Wellesley’s Chief Concierge Jim Cameron: Tell us a little bit about the history of the Wellesley hotel: The Wellesley is a 1920s Knightsbridge boutique luxury hotel with a famous musical heritage.

InterContinental - San Francisco

The drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco always seems a little shorter and a little easier. When I finally arrived there I was a little frazzled from the traffic and having anticipated a few less hours at the wheel. Making matters even more challenging was navigating downtown on a busy Saturday night before I could finally get to the hotel. I’ve come to expect good things from the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts over the years and tonight I was going to need those expectations to be met.
