For me, writing-wise, wine is to food as spa is to hotel. Okay, I used to hate those analogies on the SAT's, but I couldn't resist. My point is that, if I were to single out a particular facet in each field that I enjoy writing about most, wine would be my choice for food writing, and spas would be the part of a hotel I prefer investigating to any other. I can talk about seaweed wraps, hot stone massage, mineral baths and steam-sauna combinations for days.
Perhaps that is why my HotelChatter editor assigned me this story about the new SO Spa lines that Sofitel is starting in London and Marseille. Wait till you hear about the business package that includes a suit pressing and shoe shine!
