Leopolis Hotel

Arrival/Check-In: The Leopolis Hotel, nestled in the heart of Lviv, Ukraine, is a 5-star boutique property perfect for business or leisure travelers. The lobby is on the smaller side, with a limited seating area, but the hotel itself felt spacious. I arrived with a group of four and, despite a one-person manned front desk and the multiple check-ins concurrently, it only took a few minutes to retrieve my room key and head up to my third-floor deluxe guestroom.

Guest Quarters: My two-night visit was jam-packed, which didn’t afford me the luxury of spending much time in my guestroom. If I’d had more time to enjoy the accommodations, I know they would have proven comfortable.

A king-sized bed flanked by nightstands sat opposite a desk, above which a TV was mounted. A small sitting area occupied the corner near the window. The décor, neutral colors and clean lines, offered a soothing palette and allowed for natural light to stream through the windows. A marble bathroom rounded out the offerings in the 290-square-foot room.

Other room features include plush bedding and linens, complimentary WiFi, window black-outs and a minibar.

Services/Amenities: This boutique hotel packs a lot of punch with its amenities and services. Guests can spend an evening at the Cigar Lounge or enjoy fine dining at Leopolis Restaurant, off the lobby and boasting a menu of modern Ukrainian cuisine. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet in the restaurant one morning. Four tables on the Rooftop Terrace offer a beautiful view and an exclusive dining experience. Rounding out the culinary offerings are On Shevska, serving homemade pastries, coffee and business lunches; Summer Terrace, serving breakfast and cocktails when weather permits; the lobby bar, Hartwall Bar; the Library, where you can enjoy an evening cocktail by the fireplace or host a business meeting; and a cozy patio hideout. Room service is available 24/7.

The Spa is open daily 10 a.m.–9 p.m., and the modern gym also offers personal trainer services.

Three different conference spaces — Leopolis Hall, Karelia and Inkerman — can host events of all types up to around 250 people. The staff at Leopolis can also provide ancillary services including flowers, music and entertainment, menus and invitations and photographers.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

◆ You cannot beat the location of Leopolis Hotel, right in the center of Lviv’s historic area and just a few minutes’ walk from many of the city’s best sights, including Market Place, Opera Theatre and Vernissage.

◆ The luxury hotel’s boutique size — 72 guestrooms, including three suites and three Superb Executive suites — gives your stay an exclusive, private feel.

◆ The hotel offers first-class car, VIP minivan or bus transfers to and from the airport, a nice perk for business travelers.

Saudi Arabia Fosters Sustainable, Regenerative Tourism Along the Red Sea

 My first experience of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast now seems like ancient history. It was 1995, and I was visiting my ornithologist cousin and is wife. Getting into the kingdom wasn't easy; I needed sponsorship letters. and a pre-trip interview at the Saudi Arabian Embassy. When I arrived in the country, there was no tourist infrastructure. We toured by SUV ad often slept under the stars. Thus, one morning, we woke up on roll-out mattresses on a Red Sea beach 200 miles from Jeddah.
