Inside the Rooms of Greatest Hotels in America
The luxe Overnight Sensations: Hotels for the Discerning Traveler series from Chronicle Books ($100) highlights the most exquisite accommodations on the planet. So it comes as no surprise-to us, at least–that Gild Hall, Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, and the Thompson Beverly Hills all have pride of place in the latest lavishly photographed edition on the Americas. Only the best of the best make it into the books by Philippe Kjellgren, president and cofounder of Kiwi Collection, the world’s largest independent luxury hotel reviewer. Originally from Stockholm and raised in Africa, he has lived on four continents and traveled to more than 100 countries; in other words the man knows his stuff. Out of all the great places to stay around the globe, he taps the Thompson Beverly Hills’ as having one of the world’s best rooftop pools. See you there.
