Other than coming up with the funds for travel, the biggest concern for most travelers seems to be "Where am I going to stay?" After all, the flights to far-flung destinations focuses less on airline loyalty; the service in business class; or even the free amenities such as in-flight entertainment. The bottomline for booking flights inevitably focuses on "What is the cheapest flight?"

Yet, one area of travel ripe for exploration is over-night accomodations.

When in college, the accomodations were focused on staying with friends or at hostels. Life, back then, was easier and simpler and freer. Everything was just a grand adventure -- plus, there was less concern about personal safety and individual liberty. It was all about exploring!

Then, as time brought forth bigger paychecks, i.e. budgets, and bigger expectations, over-night accomodations became the easiest arena to move up in price-points. Heavenly beds. Grand anchor restaurants. Expensive toiletries. Quadruple-head showers. Two person bathtubs. After all, one night at the Four Seasons won't kill a budget as much as First Class on Korean Air.

Still it's incredibly difficult to wade through the copious data and online reviews to find consistent metrics for analysis. A hotel brand, like the Mandarin Oriental, can vary widely depending upon the age of the property. Whereas, other hotel brands such as the Rosewood sits at a price-point even beyond the most extraordinary travel. Therefore, it is always helpful to be able to rely upon a company to assist in identify what hotels in the world are worth going to -- and spending all those precious currencies.

In this connundrum steps in my newest travel resource : The Leading Hotels of the World.

LHW is comprised of over 400 hotels in 80 countries each with a flawless reputation for exceptional service. Elegant and luxurious, any hotel under this umbrella is synonymous with breathtaking architectural beauty. I am particularly looking forward to working with LWH to identify hotels in one of my newest assignments: identify all the forgotten cities of Europe. This will be a fun assignment!

Here's to 365 days of beautiful living!
