The Sun Palace, Cancun
We at HotelChatter know Spring Break exists even though our school days are long gone. March and April seems to be the months when kids from elementary to college age are let loose upon the world, meaning vacation time for some lucky adults too. So you know what? We decided we want in, too. There’s still enough time to book a getaway, so with that in mind, here are some vernal equinox escapes, in case you want to get on the bandwagon.

The bar at The Sanderson Hotel in London.
Mr Hip Hotels himself, Herbert Ypma, has finally decided that there are enough hip (Highly Individual Places) hotels in Britain to write a book about them. Despite living there much of the time that he's not traveling, Ypma thought that
when Hip Hotels started there were only three or four hotels [in Britain] you could say were Highly Individual Places, but now there are enough to fill a book ... He also credits global warming with improving British weather to the point where people think they can escape into the countryside with a fair chance of not being rained on.
In general, Ypma's hippest hotels around Britain tend to be either "gastro-pubs-with-rooms" complete with cosy open fires, or "groovy grands": old manors that have had a trendy makeover, perhaps with funky furniture added to a regal ballroom and creating a must-see mix.
Personally, we just love to groove along to the funky music at Ypma's website, but getting our hands on the new Britain's Hip Hotels book would also give us something to do.

Some of us at HotelChatter aren't content to sleep in a regular hotel room with four walls and a view of the boulevard. No...occasionally some of us intrepid travelers want to marry their love of adventure and travel to accommodations that are out of the box... and in the clouds.
Here then is a roundup of some of the best -- and worst -- of the world's Treehouse Hotels.
