Hotel with a Touch of Whimsy In Dijon

Like the rest of France, Dijon, the capital of Burgundy, has seen an explosion of refurbished midrange hotels. Housed in a renovated 1926 Haussmann-style building, this 42-room, five-story property in the city center was opened in 2015 by the hotelier brothers Bruno and Christophe Massucco. It is Dijon’s first Design Hotel member, and interior spaces are accordingly whimsical and contemporary, a refreshing touch in sometimes stodgy Burgundy. But at times, spaces are confined and overly designed. The lobby is cramped, the breakfast room is crammed with chandeliers and a D.J. station, and a small glass-floored elevator barely fits two pieces of luggage and seems to be the sole reason for the hotel’s name.

Location

Ideally located in Dijon’s ancient city center, the hotel is a flat eight-minute walk (or three-minute tram ride) from the train station and a 10-minute walk to sites like Les Halles Dijon, the city’s covered food market; the 13th-century L’Église Notre-Dame de Dijon; and many shops, restaurants and museums. There’s a bus stop just outside for going farther afield.

Karisma Hotels & Resorts

When Karisma Hotels & Resorts Executive Vice President Mandy Chomat was asked what he attributed the company’s ongoing success to, he wasted no time with his answer. “The philosophy was always to deliver a better all-inclusive experience,” he said. “One of the key objectives was to go after the market attuned to exceptional food and service, which is what we’re known for.”

But Chomat stressed that was just part of the equation. “The other objective was to train a distribution system of agents that would be different from anything else out there,” he said. In 2008, Karisma created the Gourmet Inclusive Vacation Consultants (GIVC) program to attract these high-caliber travel advisors, who are paid 21 percent commissions.

In addition to those high commissions, GIVC agents are privy to exclusive offers for their clients that are not available to non-GIVC agents or OTAs. “We want to work with travel agents who want to market themselves to consumers, and we’re here to help with any marketing assistance they need,” Chomat. “Agents are really important to us, because we recognize that when somebody really knows our product and how to sell it, the consumer has a better experience with

South Beach Hotel

1 Hotel South Beach opened in March 2015 as the first hotel of an eco-focused, “nature-inspired” brand created by Barry Sternlicht, the chief executive of Starwood Capital Group. (There is also a 1 Hotel Central Park, which opened last summer, and a 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge opening later this year.) Driftwood accents, billowy curtains and muted tones imbue a relaxed, sophisticated ambience, while living-plant walls add a tropical element. A pleasant scent of eucalyptus, cardamom, cedar and oak wafts through the air. In the lobby, the nature theme takes a whimsical turn as decorative mushrooms sprout from columns; moss clings to walls; and driftwood-inspired furnishings are topped with cactus-filled terrariums. Reuse and recycle is a pervasive message. Key cards are fashioned from reclaimed wood; hangers are made out of recycled cardboard.

Location

The blocklong oceanfront hotel sits at the northernmost fringe of South Beach. Museums, shops and restaurants are within easy reach. There are also three Tesla electric cars driven by staff members and available between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. for free drop-offs within a three-mile radius of the hotel.

Way to Get a Hotel Upgrade

Who doesn’t love a hotel room upgrade? The chances of getting a better room than the one you booked aren’t a pipe dream, according to Jack Ezon, a hotel specialist at the New York City-based travel consultancy Ovation Vacations. “There are lots of ways to get upgrades at a hotel,” he said.

Below, he shares tips for snagging better accommodations for no extra cost but cautions that travelers should make sure that they actually want the upgrade they’re getting. “I’ve had clients who booked a junior suite and got upgraded to a duplex suite that they hated because of the steps. In another instance, I had four couples traveling together who booked separate rooms and got upgraded to a four-bedroom villa. They were irate because they wanted space from each other on their vacation,” he said.

Book with a Travel Adviser. Booking the old-fashioned way has its privileges, according to Mr. Ezon, because many advisers have close relationships with hotel managers. “An adviser can call or email the manager and instantly get you an upgrade,” he said. And, he said, travelers usually don’t have

How to Choose the Right Bed and Breakfast

Check if their rooms have en-suite bathrooms

In the traditional sense, B&Bs were just a bunch of spare rooms in a family’s house which were let out to guests. Many of these, even today, do not have en-suite facilities. In case you can’t conceive the idea of sharing a bathroom with strangers, do clear up this aspect before you book.

Check if they allow pets

Pet owners mostly tend to find favor with like-minded B&B owners who don’t mind the guests bringing their pets along. This generosity is hard to find in most hotels, and in the rare event that you do, keeping a pet at the hotel ferociously escalates the cost. Pet-friendly B&Bs are a dream come true for animal lovers, so if you are one yourself, it’ll be easy to find the perfect accommodation.

Check if they allow children

Yes, you read that right. There are quite a few B&Bs that aren’t too keen on having young guests below the age of 12 on their property. So, if you plan to travel with young kids, take extra caution with your research.

Check if they provide ‘modern’ amenities

Grimm’s hotel in Berlin

Welcome to the fun house. Opened last year, the second Grimm’s Hotel in the German capital is bigger, bolder and more tranquil than its little brother, thanks to an eye-catching wedge-shaped building and nearby green spaces. The design is inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales, infusing the flamboyant lobby and 110 rooms and suites with bright colors and strange characters. Outfitted with a wall of wooden shingles and a fireplace crackling with digitally generated flames, the faux-lodge lobby is a kaleidoscope of hues and textures. Trippy, color-soaked forest scenes — maidens, wolves, giant mushrooms — cover the wall over the reception desk, while the lounge is inhabited by a sculptural wild boar (propping up an end table) and a lamp shaped like a rabbit. Chairs and couches in a mishmash of forms, colors and patterns (calfskin, plaid, orange, turquoise) complete the hallucinogenic atmosphere.

Location

No bread crumb trail is necessary to find your way to the hotel, which is tucked in a niche alongside a tranquil park and canal near the bright lights and crowds of Potsdamer Platz, the Times Square of Berlin. A 10-minute

Tips for a Healthier Hotel Room

REDUCE CONTACT WITH GERMS Bedspreads are notorious for holding germs, which is why many hotels use duvets with removable covers that are easy to launder. If your property doesn’t have duvets, request upon check-in that your bedspread be laundered. You can also reduce your exposure to germs by using antibacterial wipes to wipe down commonly used objects, such as television remotes, doorknobs and telephones.

IMPROVE AIR CIRCULATION Paint, furniture and cleaning products degrade the quality of the air inside because they are often made with toxic materials such as formaldehyde. And poor indoor air quality can cause headaches and fatigue. If weather permits, Dr. Chopra said, opening a window in your hotel room to allow for circulation can improve air quality. Or, choose a hotel that uses nontoxic cleaning products — the property’s reservations desk should be able to tell you if that’s the case.

USE A DAWN SIMULATING ALARM CLOCK While the hotel’s alarm clock will wake you, Dr. Chopra said that waking to sudden loud noise was a stressful way to begin your day. He suggested traveling with a dawn-simulating alarm clock,

How to Get Great Hotel Deals

No matter where you plan to go for a holiday or how long your trip is, the desire to get a good accommodation deal with tidy rooms and an at-home service is universal. Here are a few things that you can do, in order to pay less and save more.

Compare Prices on Different Websites

This can really help you get some of the cheapest hotel deals available. Look through different websites, such as Expedia, Travelocity, and Quikbook, and compare the prices. Believe it or not, you will find huge differences. It is also a good idea to visit the hotel’s own website. You can then choose whichever price suits you the best.

Call the Hotel Personally

Internet is always helpful, but it is advisable not to rely on it completely. It should be noted that websites don’t always mention the add-on expenses, which might be included in your final bill, while checking out. Therefore, even if you think that you have found the best deal online, it is still advisable to call the hotel personally and ask about the additional/hidden costs. Also, note that not all hotels have an online presence. So, do
