The marriage of travel and food has been a long and healthy journey. For chefs, a location isn’t happening to rate as a favorite unless its gourmet — be it Mexican meals in San Diego, Fish in Seattle, or the hodgepodge of tastiness that would be New York — is something unique. For us, the same logic applies to resorts where you stay in a city: not just resorts with good restaurants, sites that combine foodies and enjoy the total hotel experience. These resorts we embrace offer great foodie handouts, from indulgent a carte breakfast to free evening wine hours. Chat about the delicious extras!.

cocktails in the Lobby

The Copley Square Hotel in Boston, which offers online coffee, Breakfast, and hot chocolate all day, is one of our faves, partly because it’s nice to sit flat and drink in its elegant atmosphere, snug position.

Arriving in your room and finding a delicious surprise waiting for you goes a long way to making you feel like a visitor, rather than a client. Fifteen Beacons in Boston deserves a special note for the tiny pastries and chocolate dipped pineapple ready by the hotel’s chocolatier that will be provided to your hotel after check-in.
