Hotel Villa Flori-Italy
Boutique Hotels have always held a special place in my heart. Maybe it's my E.M. Foster romantic sensibility coming through. However, being in a hotel where guests say good morning to each other before they set off for their days journey, and then telling each others favorite finds in the evening is just my cup of tea. I am girl who prefers letters to email and getting lost versus carrying a map. Lucy Honeychurch is never far from my mind when I am traveling. I have included some of my favorite boutique hotel from all over. Even if you don't plan to stay a night, going for a drink is always a wonderful way to end an evening. Enjoy!
|I have never been to Lake Como, although my Grandmother says Villa d'Este is not to be missed. This little boutique was recommended by a friend as a "must have" on my blog. Indeed it's stunning.|
This used to be an old printing factory-hence "Ink48" The Rockwell Group were the architects who renovated this building and did an amazing job.
|I attended a private party here, that's how I heard of the hotel. This roof deck lounge is a must see. I have heard service is not the best, BUT you get a view.|
|The Private Suite|
|The Inn At Little Washington|
I am sad to say in all my years growing up in Washington DC I never was taken here. (I hope you're reading this Mom) The accommodations are of course wonderful, but it's the food you go for.

|The Pelham- London|
Love the use of gray in this room. This is totally my style.
|This was my room # 21 AND there was wine waiting when we arrived.|
|It's always one of the few hotels with a roof top terrace. Having drinks up here with a perfect view of Florence was like being in a movie.|
The Hôtel des Académies et des Arts- Paris France
I went to the tea room here while I was staying in Paris for a few weeks several years ago. This hotel was so beautifully decorated. It was a perfect blend of old and new.
|Jérôme Mesnager- artist famous for his white bodies. The hotel is covered in them.|
|This hotel is "old school" royal with a bit of shabbiness. We loved it!|
|Ummm this WASN'T our room. lol However, our room had a small balcony AND an awesome view of the Eiffel Tower.|
