First glimpse into the first ever Nobu Hotel

Best hotels in Las Vegas Nobu

Everything in the first ever Nobu Hotel is a nod to his Japanese heritage.

I still remember the first time I ate at Nobu. I was still at my very first job out of school, and sitting in that famous Tribeca restaurant, I thought I had made it. Chef Nobu’s food is so amazing that I guess it was only a matter of time that the brand expanded, but when I heard that it was taking over a tower at Caesars Palace, I thought it was genius. There was no way it wouldn’t quickly become one of the best hotels in Las Vegas. Earlier this year, I had the honor of sitting down with co-owner Robert De Niro for a story in Vegas magazine. Since then, I’ve been counting down the days until I got to see this project for myself. He talked about this exciting launch of the very first Nobu Hotel, which was his idea and now building locales as far away as Riyadh.

But for now, I have stayed in the only one in the world!

L’Auberge de Sedona: the loveliest of pauses

Getting some sun on my cabin’s balcony at L’Auberge de Sedona.

In this world of online projects and juggling a million things at once (let alone my full time job, two rambunctious big dogs, plus three to four fancy fashion soirees, magazine parties, and premieres a week — and I try to save some time for friends), I think it’s become extra-important to take a pause every once in awhile.

One Trip, Four Hotels

Buenos Aires, ArgentinaSome people think it’s a pain to move hotels once you get settled into a new city, but I pack really light and like seeing different neighborhoods. On my recent trip to Argentina, I stayed in four Buenos Aires hotels in two weeks. Scoring a discount for being a “lonely” traveler (I have to assume they meant “solo”) was just one of the highlights.

La Recoleta

My first stay ended up being cut short, since we arrived in Argentina a day later than expected. I don’t have much to stay about my first hotel, the Dazzler Libertad, in the La Recoleta neighborhood, but it was great to have a room reserved so I could throw my bags down after such a long trip and pass out.
