What does John Ragan love most about hotels?
I like the feel of a homey place. We’ve all been to enough of the big, ubiquitous hotel rooms that could be anywhere in the world. I like to go to a place where you really know if you’re in France; if you’re in Italy, you really know you’re in Italy. For that reason, I find myself in a lot of the smaller hotels. Location is key. Being able to get to where you want to get quickly, or being in the middle of things but not feeling like you are.
