Tips / Travel

With summer in full bloom, here are four floral experiences you can enjoy at your next hotel stay.

The Bloomsbury
London property The Bloomsbury is a picturesque spot to spend a summer’s day, but its all-day dining restaurant Dalloway Terrace provides a fresh and seasonal menu and decor that takes perfection to another level. The totally Instagrammable restaurant is themed after a secret garden and, for this season only, the decor and menu puts the spotlight on the beautiful bee. Book a spot at the Honey Bee Afternoon Tea, served at 4 p.m. daily.

The Chatwal
Across the pond, book the Garden Suite at The Chatwal. The Manhattan retreat is situated on the seventh floor, with a south-facing terrace that boasts plenty of space, a fountain sculpture, heat lamps for chilly nights and an herb garden. Plus, for a limited time, when you book this suite exclusively, you get access to a butler who specializes in floral arrangements.

The Lowell
Nearby, at The Lowell, guests can book a morning with Charles Masson, restauranteur behind the on-site restaurant Majorelle. With a penchant for flower arranging, Masson teaches guests the art, starting with an early morning trip to the flower market and wrapping up with a lovely breakfast.

Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons
This property offers both a cookery and gardening school, but if it’s flowers you’re after, the gardening school is the perfect fit. Explore the 11 gardens and orchards, from the Japanese tea garden to the Hartley Botanic glasshouse. Full-day courses cover topics like edible flowers and pruning. All courses include equipment, a working lunch in the glasshouse, tea, coffee and viennoiseries.

This app is a huge step up for those that rely on their memory or pen and paper to help them remember everything to pack. It happens all the time when someone believes they packed enough, but it turns out they’re missing a few items and it’s almost always something that is impossible to go without. This app will help travelers cut down on their forgetfulness and aid in making a trip stress free.

Under $100: Lyon, France

Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.
