Majoring in French and Italian in college yielded some of the best food (in my own humble opinion) and vacations (everyone wants to travel with someone who’s fluent) that I could imagine. And as a Content Editor at Forbes Travel Guide, I’m able to focus on my passion for traveling and eating — with a refined palate, of course. I love to write about my adventures; it’s a way of telling my story. I seek out everything from marathons in cities I’ve never explored to restaurants off the beaten path. When I’m not eating my way through my world travels, I’m chatting with our Tastemakers to help tell their stories of travel, food and business.

    Where is Hutton Hotel located?

    You can find Hutton Hotel in Nashville’s stylish West End neighborhood, nearby many of the city’s most popular attractions and just outside of the downtown district. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is a few blocks from Vanderbilt University, around the corner from Music Row — home to Nashville’s entertainment industry — and a quick drive from LP Field, where the Tennessee Titans play. Located at 1808 West End Ave., Hutton Hotel is a convenient spot for those visiting Music City for leisure or for business (or for a little of both). The eco-friendly boutique hotel is a unique, contemporary counterpoint to many of Nashville’s cookie-cutter hotels.

    What are the best Vancouver food experiences?

    Perched on the banks of the Strait of George and heavily reliant on the fruit of the sea, the cuisine of Vancouver is definitely one for the books. With its British history and heavy Asian tourism, you’ll find a sort of melting pot in the City of Glass. No matter what cuisine you prefer, there are a few dining ventures you have to discover. Here’s our Forbes Travel Guide editors' list of the best Vancouver food experiences:

    1. Bishop's. Intimate, modern and airy, with a loft-like yet upscale feel, Bishop's, housed in a chic duplex, is known for West Coast continental cuisine with a menu that emphasizes seasonal, organic produce and locally sourced seafood. It isn’t uncommon to spy celebrities nibbling on these delicious dishes. For those who like to sample lots of different wines with dinner, Bishop’s offers a nice selection of wines by the glass and an outstanding range of wines by the half-bottle.

    2. Tojo’s. Graced by the city’s stellar waterfront location, Tojo’s serves up some of the best sushi known to mankind. Considered the home of the California roll, this Vancouver restaurant is a must-visit. If you want to fully experience Tojo’s, opt for the Omekase and leave your meal up to the chef. All you have to do is let the server know how much you want to spend, what you like and if there is anything you can’t stand or are allergic to and the rest is in the hands of the kitchen. You’ll chow down on hot and cold dishes, as well as sushi, all of which will likely be the freshest thing that’s ever touched your lips.

    3. MARKET by Jean-Georges. Situated inside the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver, this celebrity chef’s restaurant is an experience to be had. You’ll choose from four unique “destinations” for your table and let the culinary journey begin. The menu features many of Jean Georges’ classic hits, but the exciting part is exploring new flavor combinations and various spices from different regions of the world.

    4. West. This Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant is one of those sleek, heavenly spots that make sipping cocktails for hours on end an easy task. It is an ideal choice for gourmets in search of an inventive, eclectic meal, as well as those who crave local flavor and seasonal ingredients. Located in Vancouver’s chic South Granville neighborhood, West offers diners the chance to sample the vibrant cuisine of the Pacific Northwest region. Stunning, locally sourced ingredients are on display here thanks to the masterful kitchen staff.

    What is the design style of Park Hyatt Washington?

    Revamped in 2006 by interior designer Tony Chi, Park Hyatt Washington is both cozy and elegant at once. The lobby is decked out in blond wood and feels more like a collection of spaces than various rooms that lead you to the property’s signature restaurant, Blue Duck Tavern. Throughout the first floor, you’ll spot rocking chairs, which are actually custom-made in Vermont — and no, you can’t buy them from the hotel. The eye-catching part of the lobby is definitely the piece of art in the form of two glass boxes with photographs of cherry blossoms inside.

    The lobby’s residential feel continues into the guest rooms with wooden accents, warm buttery armchairs and a muted color palette. There’s also plenty of local flavor sprinkled in the hotel’s décor. In each of the rooms, you’ll find wooden apples (a nod to the delicious apple pie at Blue Duck Tavern), American heritage books and carved wooden ducks.

    And you can’t have a hotel in D.C. without a bit of patriotic flair — behind the front desk is a red burlap wall that is broken up by stark white columns and the restaurant’s chef’s table is backed by a blue burlap wall. Put these together and you can help but feel the hotel’s proud American heritage.

    What restaurants does Park Hyatt Washington have?

    Dining is one of the larger appeals of Park Hyatt Washington, thanks to its signature restaurant Blue Duck Tavern. The popular establishment serves up classic American cuisine in a setting that feels more like a friend’s home than a dining room. Guests can enter the restaurant through the pastry pantry, offering a glimpse of the sweets that will come — don’t miss the apple pie, it’s delicious.

    But the real show here is the open kitchen. This isn’t just your average stove and countertop set-up that you can see in if you stand on your tippy toes and crane your neck; Blue Duck Tavern’s open area is center stage and literally has no walls between it and the dining room. The food is seasonal and hearty; think watermelon salad and shaved pork lomo or wood-oven fired, 30-day dry-aged New York strip. Blue Duck Tavern is open for breakfast and dinner daily, lunch Monday through Friday and brunch on the weekends.

    The lounge is another popular spot, courtesy of its glass-enclosed booths that are perfect for conducting a meeting that can be seen but not heard. The dining style here is more shared plates than every man for himself, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hog a Maine lobster roll or braised beef short ribs all to yourself.

    The Washington, D.C. hotel also boasts the Tea Cellar, a place where you can enjoy over 50 varieties from around the world, go on a sampling journey with the property tea expert or even host a tea party.

    What are the rooms like at Park Hyatt Washington?

    Though there are 216 rooms at Park Hyatt Washington, it still feels like a welcoming boutique hotel. The West End property was given a new look in 2006 by famed interior designer Tony Chi, so the rooms have an updated style to them. The sleek accommodations are spacious (rooms start at 336 square feet) and space-conscious (in-room shelving, wall-mounted TVs) at the same time. In each and every guest room, you’ll find a carved wooden apple — a nod to the famous apple pie served in the signature restaurant, Blue Duck Tavern. Larger rooms sport swivel TVs, which allows you to catch your favorite show in the sitting area, then move to the bedroom by simply rotating the bookcase-mounted TV without having to remember which channel you were watching.

    The décor is sophisticated, but not so much that you can’t relax. The butter-yellow armchairs and light wood furniture are welcoming. The crisp white bed linens are irresistible. And if you need to get some work done at the Washington, D.C. hotel, you’ll be pleased to find a lovely oversized desk in every guest room.
