How do you like to reach your hotel? By car? Public transport? Chartered helicopter? Or by chariot?
Yup, when we stayed at the Cape Colony Inn in Provincetown MA, we found chariots mentioned in their detailed transportation guide.
Of course, they’re not real chariots – they’re pedicabs. But any hotel with a sense of humor is a hotel for us.
In fact, although the Cape Colony Inn is more of a motel than a posh hotel, we couldn’t fault it. Large, spotless rooms, tasteful – nay, even boutiquey – decor, Keurig coffee machines, and comfortable Simmons beds. They have a pool… and shuffleboard... and, more importantly, great customer service (they actually upgraded us to a two-bedroom suite because we had a terrible cold and feared passing it on to our travel companion).

Are you a fan of the Mirbeau Inn & Spa in upstate New York? If so, you might be excited to learn that the award-winning property has just announced it will be opening a second location just outside of Cape Cod in the Pinehills in the spring of 2014.
Offering 50 rooms, the new Mirbeau will no doubt provide some healthy competition to the area's bazillion bed and breakfasts. Plus, the property will be only four hours from New York City and just under an hour from Boston.
The inn itself will be designed in the spirit of an old manor house in the French countryside, with Monet-inspired gardens. There will be fireplaces in every guest and massage room, and a restaurant and wine bar on-site. Not to mention, the property will overlook Pinehills Golf Club, which contains the only two 5-star public courses in all of New England.

It's not even April and yet we already have a pretty great guess at what 2009's buzzword will be: bailout. Everyone wants in on the free stuff action, and so it's no surprise that a whole packet of hotels have risen up to offer some "stress bailout incentives," taking their cue from the American Psychological Association's report that "eight out of ten people say the current state of the economy is a significant cause of stress."
From the CasaMagna Marriott Resort & Spa in Puerto Vallarta to Miami's Doral Golf Resort and Spa, hotels are chomping at the bit to both help you relax and spend a little cash. But only a little cash, as they're attempting to attract those budget-conscious folk most in need of a deep-tissue rub.
It was blazing hot day, the flowers dazzled and the clouds, all two of them, looked like cotton puffs. We were driving around the storybook town of Chatham, Massachusetts -- agog at the view of Lighthouse Beach, past a whale-shaped topiary alongside a saltbox house, off to buy a badminton set at Ben Franklin's General Store, a stop for an indescribably good meal at The Impudent Oyster...
When, still drooling at the views of the sea and sand, we drove up to The Chatham Bars Inn.
"Holy #$%@" was uttered as soon we realized this place was gorgeous.
Next summer, when you're traveling through Cape Cod with the sun still high in the sky and warm on your face, turn off onto a little curvy road in the beautifully leafy shore town of Chatham, Massachusetts. The road terminates at a perfect sand beach and off to your right is The Chatham Tides.
The hotel website is ferociously out of date and doesn't do it justice (hint to hoteliers: hire a web architect and give that archaic thang an overhaul.) And some of the Tripadvisor reviews were rather negative, but what Atlantic beach doesn't have seaweed?
