Yearly, non-refundable, high-end travel experiences are regularly canceled for unforeseen reasons. ELUXIT is an exclusive, first-of-its-kind resale marketplace, just launched, that will help solve that problem.

Founded by Bahar Schmidt, ELUXIT offers a StubHub-type model for travel, where sellers recoup most of the cost associated with purchased trips they cannot take and buyers acquire trips at more affordable prices. ELUXIT brings together buyers and sellers of unique and prized experiences, benefiting both parties.

Vacation destinations can list and sell otherwise empty rooms to generate secondary revenues, and ELUXIT also includes dedicated access to packages in popular seasons — all complemented by 24/7 customer service.

The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago Review

Though the Chicago area has been my home for decades, the view from the Water Tower Suite on the 26th floor of The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago made me gasp. I had admired Chicago’s dramatic skyline many times, but never from this angle. Through expansive windows, the skyscrapers of 900 N. Michigan Ave. and the John Hancock Center, now named 875 North Michigan Avenue, rose to my right. Far below, the landmark Chicago Water Tower nestled in a ring of trees. One of the few survivors of the Great Chicago Fire, a turning point in the city’s history being remembered on its 150th anniversary in 2021, the Gothic Revival relic resembled a fairy-tale castle in a children’s playset.

Airlines Elevate the Premium Travel Experience in the Air and on the Ground

Airplane travel evokes a lot of emotions these days: excitement, anticipation, uncertainty and nervousness, just to name a few. But when you do take to the skies again, the giddiness of getting pampered at 35,000 feet can most certainly wash away the surrealness of the past year and a half — at least for the duration of a long- haul flight — as you sip Champagne and slip your feet into plush slippers. While some global airlines have paused or pushed back plans for upgrades and refreshes to their premium cabins, others have introduced exciting changes that await in your pod or lie-flat bed in first and business classes. What’s more, amenities like privacy screens, sliding suite doors and space to spread out all serve a dual purpose as methods to luxuriate in the air while keeping social distance. Here are some nice- ties to expect now and in the near future, from retrofitted seat configurations to updated décor to Michelin-starred meals:
