Rivertown Lodge, Hudson
Opened last October in Hudson, New York, Rivertown Lodge doesn't look like much when you pull up (or walk the 20 minutes from the Amtrak train station). Formerly a 1920s movie theater later converted into a motel in 1958, the new 27-room hotel on Warren...

Elewana SkySafari: The Parks
On the fifth day of safari, Tanzania’s vastness really hits me. It happens mid-flight on our journey between parks, as the steep verticals of the Rift Valley fade in the distance and the enormity of the Serengeti plains creeps into view. Tanzania...

The Laslett, London
On the hushed street of Pembridge Gardens, lined with pristine Victorian townhouses, one would hardly have any idea that five of these Notting Hill residences—which date from the mid 1800s and Grade 2 listed—actually conceal a hotel. The exterior of...

Hanky Panky
The brainchild of American expat Berit Jane Soli-Holt, Hanky Panky is an impeccably appointed speakeasy with an equally well-considered bar program. And it's no wonder; this hidden gem is inspired by Ada Coleman—head bartender in the 1900s at the Savoy...

Taquería El Caifán

The plot might be familiar: a young start-up disrupts big, sleepy industry that nobody young wants to touch—but the ending is sweet and actually, available to purchase on the day of its launch. Raden is more than a container to hold your clothes...

Anantara Hotel, Chiang Mai
Though it’s often referred to as Bangkok’s laid-back cousin, Chiang Mai bubbles with the same electric energy as the Thai capital. It’s become a bucket-list destination for thrill-seekers across the globe, where al fresco tuk-tuk rides, sizzling snacks...
