I travel A LOT! And because my mission is to make every day as beautiful and life affirming as possible, I REALLY care about where I sleep. (Not to mention that I have been in the bedding business for over 20 years). I spend real time researching (and staying in) hotels.
Here’s what I’ve found: a great hotel room envelopes you and answers all your personal needs and in the best cases, educates and entertains your aesthetic.
A great hotel room gives you that “aaah” feeling, so you can finally relax and give yourself permission to just…watch a great movie, read a much put-off book, to actually have a moment to be in the moment!
A great hotel room has a great bathroom—more “aaah”– so you feel like you’re at your favorite spa.
Some of my favorite hotels rooms are courtesy of Kit Kemp and her company Firmdale Hotels:
Firmdale Charlotte Street Hotel
Firmdale Crosby Street Hotel
Firmdale Knightsbridge Hotel

3. A great bathroom with shower and tub and lots of fluffy, absorbent towels.
4. A comfy robe.
5. Good reading light.
6. Water by the bedside.
