The Luxury Hotel Insider:Exclusive luxury hotel deals, features and special rates from the luxury hotel experts at Five Star Alliance.

Named one of Tripbase's Best Luxury Travel Blogs for 2011, below are Five Star Alliance's newest articles featuring exclusive information on luxury hotels worldwide including special offers and deals at the world's best hotels.


Destination Spotlight: Dublin

From distilleries to art museums, there's plenty to see in Ireland's capital city. Set at the mouth of the River Liffey along the country's east coast, Dublin was originally a Viking settlement. During the 17th century, the city prospered, and Georgian style architecture flourished. "The Fair City" became a cultural center and destination for artists and writers.

Today, the charming and bustling city offers an eclectic mix of Victorian pubs, modern buildings, and historical attractions such as manuscripts at The Book of Kells at Trinity College, the Jeanie Johnston Famine Memorial Ship, and the Kilmainhaim Gaol where visitors learn what life was like in Ireland's prisons. Literary enthusiasts will want to discover Dublin's writer haunts, cyclists can venture the Three Rock Cycle Loop in the Dublin mountains, and those that seek fresh sea air can explore nearby coastal towns like Howth. And no visit to Dublin would be complete without some shopping along Grafton Street, the Guinness Storehouse, and a visit to a few local pubs in Temple Bar. 

Plus, there's an array of events happening throughout the year including the Dublin Film Festival every February, the St. Patrick's Day Festival on March 17, soccer matches, concerts, and performing arts events. 

To compliment Dublin's activities and cultural options, Five Star Alliance offers a selection of luxury hotels that will appeal to a range of travelers including Irish Classics, Contemporary Properties, and Country Estates.

Italy, known for food, art, and culture, it seems as if there's something new to discover at every turn. In this edition of Featured Journeys, we're going on a Romantic Trip Through Italy. While there's so much to explore, this journey will feature three of the major cities, along with a stop in Tuscany for wine and enjoying la dolce vita. 

Rome
Siena
Florence
Venice

Rome

The journey begins in Rome. Founded around 753 B.C., the city is a haven for history lovers. Three of our favorite hotels below provide ideal locations to explore all the Eternal City has to offer, including the Colosseum, Pantheon, St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican, and the Trevi Fountain. Thanks to Italy's fashion houses, many of the city's major landmarks, including the Trevi Fountain have recently been refurbished, making it an ideal time to visit. 

Here are a few of our top Rome hotels:

Siena

Offering a medieval setting, the city of Siena makes for a great base for exploring Tuscany. While the town itself is charming, we recommend spending a few nights (or why not an entire week if timing allows?) at one of the area's vineyard hotels where you can relax, sip some wine, and take in the beauty of the Italian countryside. 

Here are a few of our top Siena hotels:

Florence

Considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is a must-see for art lovers. Yes, Michelangelo's "David" is here, but there's so much more to see. Il Duomo, the Florence Cathedral was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi, and was built on the site of 7th century Church of Santa Reparata, where visitors can see the remains of the foundation in the crypt. On the piazza outside of the cathedral is the Baptistery of St. John, considered the oldest religious site in all of Florence.

Here are a few of our top Florence hotels:

Venice

The final stop on the journey is Venice. The City of Canals offers a romantic setting with ornate palaces lining the Grand Canal, narrow mysterious streets, and arched marble bridges crossing over canals with gondalas. Popular with artists and writers for centuries, the city is an ideal place to roam and wander with the one you love. Designed to approach from the water, Venice's iconic St. Mark's Square is a must-see, but can get crowded. We recommend visiting in the early morning.

Here are a few of our top Venice hotels:

Boscolo Venezia
