HotelHostess: Hotels for Foodies Part One

This is the first piece I have written for a new site called Hotel Hostess, which was started by the folks over at another of my outlets, LowFares.

As you might guess from the name, the new site is going to be completely hotel-focused, much like HotelChatter, though rather than a cheeky, newsy slant, we'll be doing more hotel spotlights, and thematic roundups, like this piece on the top foodie hotels around the world. I basically picked ten of the properties I've heard of lately that have most piqued my interest (and my appetite), and rounded them up in one convenient piece.

Part one features a couple of U.S. properties like the Ace Hotel in New York and the Affinia Chicago, as well as some more far-flung destinations like La Colombe at Constantia Uitsig in South Africa, an amazing-sounding property in Mexico City called Las Alcobas (pictured), and an old classic favorite of mine outside Reims in Champagne, Les Crayeres.

You can't go wrong with a visit to any of these...and you won't have a bad meal! Stay tuned for Part 2 in the series, but for now, bon appetit!
