5 More Reasons Why Hotels Are Better Than Your Everyday Existence

Hotels, How Do We Love Thee? Help Us Count the Ways

This recent story on CNN was a bit like preaching to choir for us. Of course hotels are way better than our apartments/homes/friends' couches. If they weren't, we wouldn't be staying in them.

While we agreed with the author's list of things she loves about hotels, we've got even more to add. Here are 5 more reasons why we love hotels better than our everyday existence. Hopefully, this list will get your mind off this one.

· 1. Design. We can't afford fancy artwork and we swore we wouldn't buy new couches until our toddlers grow up and stop spilling milk on them. But in hotels, we can admire all kinds of interesting art and design from the lobby to the guestroom to the restaurant and bar. And it only costs us a couple hundred bucks versus a couple thousand.

· 2. Spas. If there's a spa on site at a hotel, it's going to be hard for us to say no. We'll try our best not to walk around the lobby with our robe on though.

· 3. Fast Internet. It doesn't happen often but a few times this year we have stayed at hotels with crazy fast internet speeds. So we can catch up on "Breaking Bad" while emailing and uploading photos without frustration or guilt.

The Fancy Shows Some Hotel Love

October 12, 2011 at 9:45 AM | by | ()

Just in time for the holidays, a new social networking site has launched that allows users to create wish lists of all their favorite things from the web. Say, for example, you like the Loden Dager denim bathrobes at Hotel Americano; or this vintage photo of the original Ace New York building. By "fancy-ing" each new item, you start to build a virtual "collection" of stuff that allows other users to follow you, be inspired by your things, or recommend new things for you to like.

Like any lifestyle blog or online store, The Fancy has quite a few categories to browse through (men's, women's, gadgets, art, food, etc), but one tag that seems to do particularly well? Hotels.
