Discover the perfect meeting of luxury, comfort, location, and, surprisingly, value, at the 5-star boutique Hotel Vernet. Located on a quiet street near the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysee, the rooms are plush and comfortable, the food is excellent, and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful.
The Palace Hotel in San Francisco is indeed San Francisco’s first luxury hotel, iconic, with gorgeous architectural details. But iconic luxury can come at the sacrifice of comfort. We stayed here and can share the good and the not-so-good about staying here.
We recommend San Diego’s Marriott Marquis. It provides a resort-type experience in a downtown convention center hotel, and we’ve found it’s a great choice as a vacation home base for families. It’s also an easy place to bring your spouse and kids if you’ve got an event at the convention center to sneak in some family time while you’re not working.
