Of course you get a little extra room and often a little extra luxury when you book a suite, but what other perks can you expect? Some hotels deliver on the suite perks better than others. Here are a few to add to your travel bucket list.

 

The Chatwal New York

If you stay in one of 14 Chatwal Crown suites, you can book insider experiences curated by a LOCALIKE tour operator. Some of the experiences in the past have included private workshops and tours at the world’s largest rooftop farm and exclusive tours of The Morgan Library and Museum. All experiences are themed.

 

GoldenEye

This James Bond-inspired Jamaican retreat was Ian Fleming’s former home. If you book the five-bedroom Fleming Villa, you not only get a private beach, but you can also book a showing of your favorite film in a private screening room.

 

La Reserve Geneve

Stay in a suite at this Swiss luxury property, but make sure you stop by in the summer months. Your personal assistant will gladly book you a private cabana by the outdoor pool so you can enjoy the views of Lake Geneva uninterrupted.

 

White Elephant

If you’re staying at the historic White Elephant in Nantucket, don’t miss the White Elephant Loft. This suite gives you great access to the local scene, but you’ll also have the opportunity to explore further afield, as you reserve the use of your own BMW hybrid SUV.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

3 Gifts Travelers Want

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often.

Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.

Under $100: San Martino de Castrozza, Italy

This delightful ski town is a friendly place filled with locals more than visitors. Here's what to do if you're on a budget.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
