What are Kate Somerville’s favorite hotels?
Well I stay at the Trump Chicago a lot, obviously, because we have a partnership, but also it’s gorgeous. It’s just really cozy, but super hi-tech. They usually have great views, great gyms, obviously awesome spas and they have the best bathtubs.
If I’m in New York, I stay at The London NYC, which I love. They have great service, and it reminds me of my clinic — how they decorated it — so it’s kind of modern yet comfortable. Great bedding, great bathtub. It’s just beautiful and the service is great. And obviously, any Four Seasons because of the service, and I love the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea.
Recently, I stayed at a place called Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, which blew me away. The restaurant is out on this cliff, and you have to walk a quarter mile on this cliff-side walkway with lanterns everywhere. It’s ridiculous.
Because I’m kind of a ranch-kind of girl, the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur is one of my all-time favorites. Also, Calistoga Ranch in Napa is literally one of the best-designed hotels as far as its look and feel. It’s very rustic. It’s just so special. If I go, I eat at Auberge, which is its sister hotel, and again the service is impeccable.
