Earlier this year, a good friend working in a publishing house emailed me and asked if I’d be interested in contributing to a book on hotels. The book, it turned out, had been commissioned by Institutional Investor, a US-based magazine started by a friend of my family’s. How’s that for a small world! Called The World’s Best Hotels, it is a compendium describing what Institutional Investor readers consider the world’s top 80 (city/business) hotels. (I was thrilled to read that my own favourite city hotel, the Four Seasons George V in Paris had been voted number one!)
In between the descriptions of the hotels, the publishers commissioned me and a couple other writers to pen a few essays on hotel trends. My 3 essays were centered on f&b trends, amenities, and architecture and design. Today, I was emailed a copy of the cover, which I love and have posted above. The book should hit shelves in June 2005.
