Metropolis’ Dream Hotels Directory
As a companion to our April issue cover story, The Dream Hotel, we have created a Directory of the most interesting, designer-approved hotels around the world.
I have many pet peeves that, I wager, are shared by most travelers today. Among these moments of discomfort are the endless security lines and rude TSA agents, tight seats on planes, indifferent service, noisy and hyper active hotel lobbies, rooms with inoperable windows and loud AC systems that cannot be turned off, making even the most balmy night feel like an ice station on the North Pole.
In hopes of escaping from the torture of travel, each time I check into a hotel I expect to find moments of respite, beauty, ease, and comfort. When this happens, all the bad memories of travel are gone and the harried traveler is able to recharge–become human again. Beautifully designed hotels that offer great service are a gift to the human race.
