What are Elaine Turner’s favorite hotels?
I’m a huge Four Seasons fan. I’m just a huge fan of Isadore Sharp [Four Seasons founder and chairman]. I just read his biography. He’s very entrepreneurial and inspiring. Like me, he’s an entrepreneur, and the way that they handle that understated luxury but mixed with service and family friendly is a unique combination for a hotel to capture, especially for the size of their hotels being a little larger. They give it a very attentive, boutique feel. And they are very consistent with quality. So I’m a big Four Seasons fan.
I stay at the one in Austin all the time, and I love that hotel. It’s kind of like home-away-from-home for me. We go to Punta Mita almost every year and stay at the Four Seasons, which is a wonderful hotel. I’ve stayed at the one in Denver; I’ve stayed at the one in New York. It’s kind of the go-to for me. I just feel with the consistency and the discipline of the people and the training, you just know you’re not going to end up being in trouble. It’s like home.
