Sleep near the Swans in Bradford on Avon

With the perfect canal-side location in Bradford on Avon in Wiltshire, England, Timbrell’s Yard provides quirky brilliance with modern décor, excellent service and plenty of atmosphere. Choose a room in the new wing, and enjoy a multilevel room with loft and views of the canal and its resident swans just beyond your window. Cozy touches include calfskin-covered chairs with sheepskin seats, sloped ceilings with skylights, original art, tea and coffee stations, complimentary WiFi and individual decorating surprises like retro clock radios, vintage what-nots and black-and-white geometric bathroom tiles.

Refurbished in 2015, the Grade II listed building has a total of 17 en-suite guestrooms, plus an excellent restaurant and bar. Look for freshly baked, oversized croissants at breakfast, and creative British fare from head chef Ricky Ford at lunch and dinner. The changing menu highlights fresh local ingredients, served up in dishes such as organic salmon cured in Plymouth gin with horseradish, bay and pickled beetroot; and celeriac, spinach, parsnip and driftwood pie with pumpkin. For dessert, select from an array of West Country cheeses — or head straight for the rum, cherry and chocolate tart, served with honeycomb and thick cream. While there, opt for a seasonal cruise along the Avon aboard a river cruiser from Barbara McLellan Canal Boats. Operated by the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust, the purpose-built, wide beam boats can accommodate up to 51 passengers (meeting on the move, anyone?) and are equipped with full bars.

JW Marriott New Orleans Review

Family gatherings are extra special this year and we chose to celebrate a milestone birthday in New Orleans. The JW Marriott New Orleans, across the street from the historic French Quarter, is ideally situated for exploring the city. Streetcars roll in front of the property and are especially fun for first-time visitors. Within a ¾-mile radius, we could walk to the National WWII Museum, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Sazerac House, Harrah’s Casino, the Shops of Canal Place and numerous restaurants.

Arth Bar + Kitchen Review

You can always count on your trusty neighborhood Indian restaurant to offer most of Northern India’s greatest hits (baigan bartha, butter chicken, dal, spinach paneer) and several favorites from the south (Thali platters with sambar and masala dosa wraps). However, aerospace industry executive-turned-restaurateur Mihir Lad and veteran chef Sagar Ghosh get their well-traveled and experienced Los Angeles foodie customers want an Indian dining experience they won’t find at regular spots. What makes Arth Bar + Kitchen a “destination”? Think Kolkata fish fry, Sexy Fries (Ghosh’s spin on poutine topped with curry, green chutney, tomato gravy and mayo), Old Monk Drunken Wings (rum-infused chicken wings), and the addictive LAAL Mirch Ka Paneer Tikka. And that’s just the appetizer selection.
