Tour this Luscious London Micro Hotel

January 13, 2016 • By

Today’s stylish vacation rental is actually a tiny, two-guestroom hotel called 40 Winks.

(My dad used to always say he was going to catch 40 winks, just as he would lie down on the sofa for a nap…)

This lovely house was built in 1717, so it’s almost 300 years old. It’s quirky, eccentric and playfully glamorous. The kitchen is completely over the top!

Take a tour of this United Kingdom Vacation Rental with a Theatrical Vibe - 40 Winks. Grace, glamour, art, and design can be found here - so magical!

Is This The World’s First Non-Profit Hotel?

While visiting friends in Winter Park, Florida last weekend, I was treated to brunch at Hamilton’s Kitchen. Hamilton’s is located inside The Alfond Inn, a new boutique property that may be the world’s first non-profit hotel.

The lobby of the inn is bright and open, filled with contemporary art and modern Moorish influences. Hamilton’s opens onto the courtyard, and we chose a table outside. The weather was as perfect as you’d expect in a Florida resort town.

Yes, that’s right.  An Instagram-themed hotel called 1888 has just opened in Pyrmont, Australia, a suburb of Sydney, Australia.  The rooms are decorated with Instagram photos – and if you have more than 10,000 followers on Instagram you can, supposedly, stay for free!

Hotel Love: The Rittenhouse Hotel, Philadelphia

imageWe loved the Rittenhouse from the moment we arrived – so much so that we changed our plans and stayed for two extra nights. That’s the beauty of a planned (but not overly planned) road trip!

Keswick Hall in Virgina – on Rover@Home

Keswick Hall in Charlottesville, Virginia is one of my all-time favorite hotels. I have great memories of being snowed in here once, years ago. There were only a few other guests and it seemed like just one or two staff. Most people were spending their holidays at home, but READ MORE
