My name is Noëmie and at a very young age I discovered I had a true passion for hotels. But not just any hotels.
I mean the real gems; the ones that when looking at their beautifully ornamented walls, one thought came to my mind: “If only these walls could talk“…. As if by just looking at their structure location and age, I could guess their history was worth and comparable to all the adventure books I had read.
The problem that arose when I realized I had fallen unconditionally in love with them is that, unfortunately, staying in these Palaces was way over my budget.
I eventually found a manner to enter and thoroughly discover these buildings: by enjoying a nice cup of tea in the lobby, bar or tearoom.
And so, the adventure began and just as Indiana Jones, I uncovered some of the most stunning and unforgettable hotel treasures!
In my opinion, a hotel reflects a city’s philosophy, architecture, art, taste and mindset. It will teach you everything you need to know about the culture, the social statuses, the dos and don’ts of the place you are visiting.
Believe it or not but while sitting and discreetly listening to the interesting conversations around you in a hotel’s lobby, you can uncover the political, economic and social situation of a country.
The tea and cookies served to you will open doors to various universes you could only dream of! You may suddenly be transported to your granny’s home while eating some home-made cookies in a five-star hotel or be dragged to the Himalayan mountains thanks to the exotic taste of your tea.
This blog was created to show my friends, yes you dear readers, that it is possible to taste the savor of some hotels the way you experience a castle, a mansion or even a museum, as these palaces have it all!
I want to underline the recognition these fantastic places deserve as they make travelling a true and unforgettable pleasure.
I want to thank the amazing staff of all the wonderful and dreamlike gems I have visited, as all of this would not have been possible without them. Their smiles, discretion, understanding, care and incredible memory is what makes this enchanted world go round!
The mixture of all these elements and people are the past, the present and the future of your enjoyment! Cherish it as if it were your home, your heritage and your history!
