||What are the hallmarks of exceptional
lodgings? Atmosphere! Inspiring architecture! Beauty in design, color
and well-chosen furnishings! Fresh flowers, luxurious toiletries,
comfortable beds and pillows! A commodious bathroom! Exquisite food!
A discreet and excellent staff! A gym, business center, valet services
and, hopefully, in the not-too-distant future, internet connections
in every guestroom!

seaside resorts and dude ranches can also feel like a home away
