Trianon Palace and SpaThis has been quite a year for the hotel known formerly as the Trianon Palace and Spa, a Westin Hotel. Earlier this year the hotel underwent a re-branding to the prestigious Waldorf Astoria Collection, and with it brought in many luxurious upgrades. In addition to the property being fully renovated and restored, Gordon Ramsay, the celebrated 2-Michelin-starred chef, has opened his first French dining destination, Gordon Ramsay au Trianon. Guests can expect exquisite French dishes in an intimate, stylish setting.

With the Waldorf name also comes the Versailles Guerlain Spa, a 2,800-square-meter sanctuary of beauty, relaxation, and fitness. Here, guests can enjoy custom spa therapies, a stylish cut at the Leonor Greyl hair salon, or a relaxing dip in the heated indoor pool. Lavish and contemporary, this is a step above most spas. With the reemergence of this luxury property, they are also introducing special new rates. Book now, and you can stay in the Classic Guest Room, with breakfast for two, for under 200 Euro a night.

By: Alison Victor

W New York Times SquareOnce known as the destination for college spring breakers, Fort Lauderdale has been shifting the focus from party destination to upscale oasis. The downtown area has been steadily growing over the last decade with art galleries, high-rise condos, and gourmet restaurants. As we reported last month, the latest stake in Ft. Lauderdale's claim to luxury destination is the addition of the new oceanfront W Hotel. This stylish and sophisticated 23 story retreat celebrated its grand opening with a star studded bash, attracting the likes of Cindy Crawford and Blake Lively. The property not only boasts an infinity edged pool and suites with panoramic views of the gold coast, but also a Bliss Spa, the ultra-hip Whiskey Blue Bar, and many chic retail boutiques. The W Brand, with destinations in such cultural hubs as New York and

Los Angeles, has been known for its young and modern vibe since its first incarnation over ten years ago. It looks like Ft. Lauderdale will be a new luxury force to be reckoned with in the years to come.


What’s Hot in New York: The New Penthouse Suite at The Tribeca Grand


By: Mary Winston Nicklin

Tribeca Grand Hotel, New YorkTalk about the height of luxury. There's a new penthouse suite on the block in Manhattan, and it's pretty swank. What's inside the Penthouse at the Tribeca Grand? A full-sized living room, dining room with sweeping city views from floor-to-ceiling windows, master bedroom with a custom-designed bed draped in luscious fabrics, and a rooftop terrace where you can dine al fresco under a teak pergola or sip cocktails under the stars. The best part of all? It's your own private hideaway, only accessible from the suite's interior staircase. These lavish digs are certainly paramount in NYC. Like a haute private residence in TriBeCa, the place comes equipped with all kinds of high-tech gadgetry: flat-screen plasma televisions, an iMac G5, and Sony Dream Machine Speaker Dock digital music system.

PS. Even if the Penthouse isn't your thing, the Tribeca Grand has other rooms that might be more up your alley, priced at just $229 over the July 4th weekend.
