What are Chris Hastings’ favorite hotels?
Probably not as much of a hotel junkie as a lot of people are, but we generally stay at the best hotels we can find in places like Venice, Rome, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland and Buenos Aires. What I really like to do is try to find a flat and immerse ourselves into the community. You can shop at the market, you go to the cafés, eat charming meals on the street with the locals, and try to be reasonably articulate with the language. I know there are hotel junkies, and I get it because it’s luxurious and it’s awesome, but I probably prefer the latter. That’s where you can really do your intel and talk to people about the local restaurants. That to me is where we are more comfortable.
