I stayed at the new St. Regis Venice the week it opened. The brand-new hotel was gorgeous, but I’m not sold on its design, and there were still some kinks to work out. Pros: Beautiful canal views, convenient location and a comfortable bed. Cons: Service inconsistent, along with the functionality of the phone system and Wi-Fi, weird lighting in the bathroom and seemingly fake wood floors that were very slippery.

PROS: Fantastic location in the 1st arrondissement. You can walk to the Louvre in just one minute. CONS: The Paris Metro travels under the hotel from 5:30 a.m. to 12:40 a.m. daily (1:40 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays). The low rumble may wake light sleepers.

"The Equinox hotel grounds and property were historic and beautiful, and I loved being able to get out of the concrete jungle that is New York City to enjoy a relaxing weekend away in the woods. I ended up getting a great night of sleep in the bed and had a delicious breakfast. But little things, like the strange bathroom setup, thin walls and terrible room service, might keep me from returning."

This is usually the time of the year when summer’s on its way out, and with it goes the greenery of the season. In its place comes pumpkin spice, hot cider and knit sweaters. And what better way to herald the season’s advent than with a road trip to see the leaves change color?
