I’m a total hotel geek. There’s not much more I adore than checking into a new hotel. I examine the toiletries, inspect the linens, and investigate the amenities. I’ve lost count of the number of hotels I’ve slept in or toured since starting this site in 2011, but it’s likely close to 500. Every hotel listed on this page is one that I absolutely recommend. Either I’ve spent the night in the hotel or I’ve spent a significant amount of time in its restaurants, spa, or bar. My recommendations are based on personal experience. In addition, some of these links are affiliate, meaning I make a small commission, with no additional cost to you. This helps keep me stocked in French wine, as well as a roof over my head.
