The 11 Best Hotels in NYC: Fall 2011

November 2, 2011 at 1:58 PM | by | Comment (1)

This year has proven quite eventful on the NYC hotel front (then again, when hasn't it?). Hotels opened. Hotels closed. Hotels wore itsy bitsy tuxedo short shorts. And now, it is time to take stock of the hottest hotels on the NYC scene.

As with all our reviews, commentaries, and other long-winded musings, every hotel on this list has been HotelChatter tested and approved. In no way have these rankings been bought or influenced by eager hoteliers and/or pr reps.

Of course, everyone's got their own unique take on what they would consider "the best" hotel in a given city. Some go for design. Some go for affordability. Some go to party. But those varying opinions only make the conversation richer; so we hope to hear your thoughts on what you feel should (or shouldn't) have made the cut. Drop 'em in comments below!

How to Stay at The 10 Best Hotels in Miami for Less (Big Hint: Go Offseason)

August 2, 2011 at 5:07 PM | by | Comment (1)

Everyone loves Miami (except maybe Cleveland Cavaliers fans) but not everyone can do it up J.Lo style paying $1,000 a night without a glance inside their Fendi wallets. So there's only one way to do it--go in the offseason which is conveniently happening now.

We found totally doable rates for people with champagne tastes but limited budgets. And these are the deals you can get directly from the hotel. No Groupon, Private sale or Hotwire roulette needed.

However, what you will need is a little cash flow. The best hotels in Miami (HotelChatter approved, that is) aren't going to bottom out completely just because it's August and hurricane season is nearing. So expect to pay about $300 a night. Hey, it still beats a $1,000, right?

The 6 Best Hotels in Boston: Winter 2011

December 15, 2010 at 12:58 PM | by | Comments (10)

For over six years now, we've been chronicling, photographing and filming the best and the worst in hotels around the world. And now it is time to impart our PH.D-like hotel wisdom on you in rankings form. You wanted the best and you got the best, the hottest hotels in Boston...LIST.

Our one criteria? All hotels on these lists must be HotelChatter tested and approved and in no way have these rankings been bought or influenced by eager hoteliers and/or pr reps.

Now, the rankings can and will change which is why our aim is to let you know who is moving up and down the charts on a seasonal basis.

In this Winter 2011 Best Hotels in Boston edition, we looked for hotels worthy of putting up with wind chills and black ice where you could enjoy the wonderfully low tourist count that Boston possesses in the winter. Yet while the winter can bring easy access to excellent chowder and pubs, thanks to hospitals, colleges, and corporations, rates in Boston don't fall as much as we would like.

We found sample price quotes using the HotelChatter booking engine and searching for rates between January 14 - January 17. Of course, rates are not guaranteed and are subject to change.

In this inaugural Fall 2010 Best Hotels in New York City edition, we looked for hotels worthy of a holiday getaway. Yet while the holidays in NYC can be magical, the damage a New York City hotel stay does to your budget this time of year is not fun. We found sample price quotes using the HotelChatter booking engine and searching for rates between Nov. 29-Dec. 3. Of course, rates are not guaranteed and are subject to change.
