Even though The Bachelor has ended (congrats Sean and Catherine, we give it a year!), this only means that The Bachelorette is just beginning. According to RealitySteve.com filming has indeed commenced for Desiree Hartstock and her boys.
While Steve has hinted that he knows where the show will go after they do a few elimination rounds in LA, he hasn't spilled the beans just yet. But that's ok because our friend Johnny Jet has a first-hand scoop on where the Bachelorette filmed one of their dates--The Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. And boy, it is not good. For the hotel at least.
Johnny and wife headed up to Ojai from LA last weekend for a nice quiet retreat. Instead they got helicopters, an over abundance of production crew and rude staff. He writes:
When I tried to pull up to valet, the hotel staff questioned where we were going ó he almost seemed surprised we were hotel guests. He told us that only self-parking was available and he guided me to the parking lot as the Bentley was quickly coming up from behind. While waiting for them to finish their shot, I snapped the photo above. In between the retakes, we walked to the lobby to get a golf cart to the room since itís a long walk and Natalie wasnít feeling well.

We now present you with our VIP Hotel Reviewer Series in which we hand-pick experts in the travel and media worlds and beyond to tell us what are their favorite hotels and why. Once a week, we'll feature a hotel review from said VIPs about their favorite leisure or business hotels. Pay attention: These VIPs are experts at what they do and they don't mess around when it comes to their hotels.
The next VIP in the series is Johnny Jet, aka John DiScala, the man behind the extremely popular travel website and newsletter JohnnyJet.com. If there's ever a question you have about airlines, airfares, hotels, resorts and travel in general, Johnny Jet is the man to ask. And that's probably because he's been there. Twice. Enjoy.
It's an honor to be writing for HotelChatter.com and when they asked me to pick my favorite hotel - I had to think about it. It's been over 10 days and I'm still thinking about it. Seriously, reflecting back, I realize I might be one of the most spoiled or luckiest S.O.B.'s on earth as I have been fortunate to stay at some incredible places over the years.
However, to pick one thatís totally unique and definitely in my top 10 has to be Longitude 131. Itís far far away in Australiaís Red Center in the town of Uluru/Ayers Rock. The 15 luxury "tents" resort is built on a sand dune. Itís for adults-only (over 12) so forget about bringing the kids. It has won many awards, including The Robb Reportís Top Ten Haute Hotels in the World, and is eco-friendly.
