Chicago: The Palomar Hotel

The Palomar is a Kimpton boutique hotel with the one in Chicago located in the heart of downtown. The Magnificent mile is a stone's throw away, as is the famed Billy Goat Tavern and Millenium Park. Everything you want to see is just around the corner. It was the perfect location to be for Rebecca Minkoff's #RMRoadtrip at Nordstrom.

Luxurious, contemporary and ecclectic in design with wonderful service and attention to detail, like the animal print bathrobes, perfect for wearing to the rooftop pool (also can I have those at home please?)

Vermont: Stowe, Green Mountain Inn

If you're ever in Stowe over Easter weekend, like we were, where not a whole lot is open, and the town is quite deserted, you had better have booked a room at the Green Mountain Inn.

With all the cosiness and history of a charming lodge, all the ammenities you could ask for, all the luxury in the rooms (that you never want to leave!) and all the Green Mountain coffee you could drink, it's a wonderful place to stay.

I wasn't even paid to say so!

Miami: Fontainbleau Hotel

What a glorious stay at Miami's Fontainbleau Hotel.

Not only is it one of the most beautiful hotels in South Beach, it also has the best service I've ever encountered, both indoors and out, not to mention the incredible Hakkasan restaurant.

After I was stung by a jelly fish one afternoon, the Lapis Spa staff's immediate concern and quick response helped ease the pain (and who knew vinegar is the solution!) and allowed me to get back into the ocean soon after.

We're immensely thankful to the kind staff of the Fontainbleau, who generously donated the luxurious Lapis Spa products for the Nashua Soup Kitchen. We were happy to bring back a giant box of mini shampoos and lotions, that we distributed at the NSK this past weekend.

Thank you so much Fontainbleau, we'll most definitely be back!



Greece: Santorini, Goodbye 

Guys, it's finally time to say goodbye to Santorini, and Hotel Sunny Villas, easily one of the most unique hotels in the world.

Here's a last look.
