    The Grand Del Mar is ending up on everybody’s list for a top hotel. I think we’re going to need to visit there this year!

    I can´t believe I didn´t read this before going to Almagro. What a shame, fabulous looking hotel in a really lovely town – I thoroughly recommend it and hope to return.

    The Elysian Hotel Chicago is now called the Waldorf Astoria. This year, it was ranked the #1 Large City Hotel in the Continental U.S. in the Travel + Leisure 2012 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey!
