What are Adam Seger’s favorite hotels?
I love The Savoy in London because it’s a great location to get kind of all the sites you’d want to be at, but there’s so much rich history. Certainly being a cocktail fan, the bar at The Savoy is one of the most important hotel bars anywhere, certainly in London. The Savoy Cocktail Book is kind of like one of our bibles. Staying there is always a treat. I love the Clift in San Francisco; it’s got the Redwood Room in there. A lot of my favorite hotels have great hotel bars as well. I mean that’s one of the treats — taking the elevator home after you’ve had a nightcap.
In New Orleans, I love the Royal Sonesta. You’re really right there in the heart of the French Quarter. There’s also Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse. He’s one of the great modern jazz saxophonists. It has Restaurant R’evolution as well. So that’s my favorite spot there.
An interesting one is Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas; it’s such a wonderful break from all the flashing lights. You’re out in the casinos, but after walking into the Four Seasons, there are no flashing lights or electronic noises. It makes Las Vegas a lot more bearable.
