    Road Tripping with Shane Fonner Down the Dreamy Pacific Coast Highway

    Palmiers du Mal Creative Director and friend of A Hotel Life Shane Fonner recently took a road trip down the Pacific Coast Highway. While many people spend the end of summers traveling abroad, Fonner dove into California culture, visiting quaint towns, boutique hotels, and, naturally, the most scenic landscapes on the West Coast. Check out why this was a “bucket list” road trip below, in his words. We started in San Francisco with a stay at the fabulously remodeled Kabuki Hotel, set atop a promontory with expansive, panoramic views over Japan Town towards the Pacific (and the Golden Gate Bridge if you’re lucky enough to land a higher floor), and…

    14 Hotels Made From Old Monasteries — The Agenda by Tablet Hotels

    Sometimes you need a little rest and reflection. Sometimes you need a little spirited self-indulgence. These monastery hotels are for those times when you need quite a bit of both. It’s ironic that so many hotels are made from old convents and monasteries. What were once sacred spaces dedicated to service and quiet contemplation have been converted into destinations that are not unfamiliar with a bit of boisterous hedonism. The hotels below split the difference. Their monastic history makes them ideal for some rest and reflection, but there are also plenty of modern amenities and activities in which to indulge, like gyms, spas, restaurants, and of course, bars. After all,…

    Laufen has unveiled its latest Kartell by Laufen project during London Design Festival, creating an artistic museum-like installation at the Kartell flagship store in Chelsea. Signed by designers Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, the washbasin installation was characterised by an east-meets-west theme and combined innovation with thoughtful research. The showroom was divided into two main display areas: the first a luminous raised platform hosting the concept inspired by the iconic Chinese ‘dim sum’ tableware, objects with very free and playful forms utilised to set the large table. The pieces took shape through the use of Saphirkeramik, a ceramic that permits the production of extremely thin walls with very small radii and smooth…

    The Museum of Broken Windows Wants You to Demand Reform

    Recently we’ve seen a surge in the ‘museum pop-up’ concept, taking a niche interest like ice cream or pizza and creating a silly experience for those seeking something frivolous and Instagram-friendly. The New York Civil Liberties Union is offering something different with their take on the pop-up exhibit. At their new pop-up, The Museum of Broken Windows, the NYCLU flips the joviality of the concept and instead takes viewers on a reflective journey through police brutality, racial discrimination, and ‘broken windows’ policing. The theory of broken windows is that visible signs of crime begets more crime; unchecked disarray—a literal broken window for instance—alludes to disorder or lawlessness, enabling further criminal…

    Travel Guide to Cape Town — The Agenda by Tablet Hotels

    From the city to the coast to the countryside, Cape Town is the kind of place that has something for everyone. The Mother City, Tavern of the Seas, Cape Grab — Cape Town’s three historic nicknames stand in for its three defining characteristics. Respectively, it’s a sprawling urban center, a seaside foodie capital, and a place for innkeepers looking to make a buck. An honest buck, we’ll add, at least these days. Travelers have passed through Cape Town perennially but today it’s more worth a visit than ever. For the nature, the food, the adrenaline rush, the beaches, and also the history — apartheid museums and tours are a testament…

    The Pure Opulence of Palace Hotels — The Agenda by Tablet Hotels

    William Blake wrote that “The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.” Conversely, there are few better ways to achieve excess — the good, healthy kind — than through the incredible opulence of a palace hotel. In the hotel world, “palace” doesn’t just describe a type of building. It’s a commitment to a lofty set of ideals; a designation that signifies lavish luxury served with a side of romance and intrigue — and there’s no shortage of impressive examples on Tablet. When mansion hotels aren’t grand enough, and monastery hotels are too introverted, what you need is a stately pleasure-dome that’s intended to make you feel like you…
