Paso Robles’ La Bellasera Hotel & Suites

Arrival/Check-In: After a day of road-tripping up the coast of California from Los Angeles to Monterey County and then to Paso Robles, I arrived at the hotel late at night and parked for free in the property’s large lot. Check-in was quick, taking less than five minutes.

Guest Quarters: I stayed in the king whirlpool suite, measuring about 500 square feet and accommodating two to three people. The room included a king-sized bed and a single sofa sleeper; the sleeping area and living area are separated by pocket doors. The best part of the room was the whirlpool, a fun component most hotel rooms do not include. It was actually quite a grand, central part of the room. The spacious living room area included a sofa, a television and a large writing desk. The bathroom’s walk-in shower was huge and newly remodeled.

Services/Amenities: La Bellasera offers 60 guestrooms and suites, including luxury whirlpool, fireplace and patio suites. Guests can enjoy Central Coast cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Enoteca Restaurant & Bar, complete with wine pairings. Wine lovers will appreciate the lobby’s The Cellar, offering an extensive selection of local wines. The Spa at La Bellasera provides wellness treatments such as its signature massage, warm stone massage, revitalizing organic grape seed scrub or lavender and patchouli massage, as well as customized corporate spa events and a fully equipped fitness center. La Bellasera is also home to the Central Coast Conference Center, which accommodates groups up to 40 for meetings and events.

The Experience: La Bellasera Hotel meets both the business and leisure traveler’s needs. It offers business travelers convenient amenities such as internet access, spacious meeting facilities and the latest audiovisual equipment. Conveniently located midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, it is ideal for corporate retreats and business excursions.

La Bellasera is also perfectly suited for Paso Robles leisure travel, close to some of the Central Coast’s best attractions such as the Hearst Castle, Lake Nacimiento, the State Fairgrounds and, of course, several local wineries. The property is perfect for kicking back and relaxing after a long day of tasting some of California’s best wines.

Former 1940s-Era Italian Bank Transformed Into Rome EDITION Hotel

It is hard to resist the pleasures of Rome, a city filled with world-renowned paintings; sculptures; thousands of colorful cafés; and hundreds of ancient buildings still standing and often used as offices, homes and museums. Certainly, Rome is the cradle from which all that is best about Italy emerged. It is difficult to open a new hotel in Rome without connecting it to the city’s history, art and culinary tradition. When Rome EDITION opened last year, it was the perfect fit for a city that lives and breathes all things extraordinary.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.
