- Suite Spot: The Hideaway, Carmel
By Jeanne Cooper - Friday Jun 2, 2017
Among PlumpJack’s newer lodging appellations is Carmel, where the 24-room Hideaway debuted last spring. On a semi-residential stretch of tree-lined Junipero Street, just two blocks from bustling Ocean Avenue. PlumpJack’s active partners, Hilary Newsom and Jeremy Scherer, teamed with real estate developers SMeriwether Companies and hired Napa design firm Shopworks to help transform the former Cobblestone Inn motel. The results include bright, uncluttered interiors with bold swaths of wood and leather; compact but gleaming Euro-modern bathrooms; and a handsome fireplace lounge, where staff lays out the complimentary gourmet Continental breakfast and evening wine with cheese and antipasti. Insider’s tips: A five-minute walk away on San Carlos Street, counter-service Carmel Belle (a Hilary Newsom fave) offers healthful, often locally sourced breakfast, lunch and dinner; 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday is game night. Some king rooms offer a sofa bed, although floor space is tight when the bed is in use; it’s better to pay an extra $20 to have the sofa bed in a separate sitting area.
- Suite Spot: Opus Hotel Vancouver in trendy Yaletown
By Jeanne Cooper - Wednesday Jun 28, 2017
Today, it remains a hidden rainbow in the city’s brick-clad enclave of Yaletown, with up-to-the-minute technology (in-room iPads, loaner Samsung Galaxies) and a timeless approach to personal service. Across the street from trendy Yaletown’s warehouse-reclaimed pubs, restaurants and health food hangouts — plus a Sky Train subway station with direct access to the airport — Opus also lies two blocks away from the False Creek waterfront, with ferries to Granville Island’s Public Market and the Science World museum. Well-placed launch pad with cheery hues and thoughtful touches. Enjoy a glass of rosé at check-in and catch up on the news via the iPad’s Pressreader app; turndown service offers a retro candy (think Pop Rocks) that varies nightly. Rooms feature bold colors, local artwork, plush beds and spacious bathrooms; some provide great cityscape views, too. Easy breakfast options are at hand just off the lobby at Opus Bar (a hopping spot with live music Wednesday nights), or neighboring Caffe Artigiana, a local coffee chain.

- Quebec a Canadian haven for quirky hotels
By Margo Pfeiff - Wednesday Jun 28, 2017
The handful of remaining elderly nuns then donated the building to a nonprofit organization that, after renovations, opened it in 2015 as a luxury 65-room hotel, retreat and wellness center. Once home to over 200 nuns, the elegant and unusual hotel is a blend of old and new, the no-frills monastery style converting well into a chic minimalist design with whitewashed walls, exposed wooden beams and floors, and wide hallways lined with portraits and statues leading to quiet retreats for meditation. The secular hotel’s mission is to carry on the Augustine philosophies of rejuvenating and healing its guests, now through meditation, aromatherapy, massage, yoga, holistic workshops and healthy food. For a true historical experience, I stay in one of Le Monastere’s 33 “authentic” rooms, simple former nuns’ quarters with Augustinian furniture and a single bed. An organic breakfast is served in the bright dining room in silence, according to monastery tradition, and I feel myself starting to unwind. Stepping down worn and creaky steps, I explore the hospital and Augustine museum with over 40,000 artifacts on the main floor, then head downstairs again into the massive new archives with more than half a mile of original manuscripts. The modern hotel celebrates indigenous connections, from rooms artfully decorated with fox and beaver pelts to the subtle flavors of wild herbs from the boreal forest on the lunch and dinner plates of their restaurant. Guests can join the daily Labrador tea ceremony in the lobby, learn how to make bannock, go dog sledding, strap on snowshoes to track caribou or sleep in the longhouse with a modern hotel room as a backup for convenience. In La Traite restaurant, renowned Quebec chef Martin Gagné offers multicourse tasting menus to highlight his creative takes on traditional native cuisine. The food is seasonal and might feature elk tartare, smoked eel, Quebec scallops with sea urchin butter, wild cattails with spicy birch syrup, red deer osso buco perfumed with bog myrtle or a fillet of seal. Quebec’s provincial park service — SEPAQ — has always dreamed up inspired ways to help people enjoy the wilderness with various levels of comfort in their 23 parks and nine wildlife reserves. The 320-square-foot studio layout of blond wood has a sleek Scandinavian feel and includes a well-equipped kitchen and compact bathroom with shower. There is electricity, hot water, wallboard heating, bean bag chairs for lounging in front of a small wood-burning stove, and a welcoming hammock swinging inside a screened porch. The cabins are available year round, and before I leave I’m already planning an EXP cross-country ski and snowshoe excursion when the snowflakes start falling. Just 30 minutes north of the city, North America’s only Ice Hotel since 2001 has 44 rooms and suites, each themed with different super-clear ice sculptures. The dazzling grand lobby and its chandelier, the chapel where you can tie the knot with the bride wearing a white fur coat, the three bars — and even the glass from which I sip local ice cider — are all made of ice. There’s also a modern hotel where every Ice Hotel guest has a backup room for modern conveniences. After a warm-up sauna and hot tub I head to my ice bed in a spectacular room with icebergs, polar bears and seals swimming along icy blue walls that can be up to four feet thick. Though the inside temperature is 41 F, the wooden frame and thermal mattress atop my ice bed and a weapons-grade down sleeping bag keep me warm throughout the night, dreaming about living atop an ice floe. Longhouse overnight package from $560 per night for a minimum of four people includes the cultural experience, a hotel room for modern conveniences and breakfast. Various packages and promotions might include activities from dog sledding to access to the adjacent Valcartier theme park complex including an indoor water park. www.valcartier.com/en/winter-playground Sleep in a suspended spheres or a glass geodesic dome in forest alongside Saguenay Fjord, 2 hours and 45 minutes northeast of Quebec City.

Three, four and six-course tasting menus often featuring unconventional First Nations’ ingredients prepared in an elegant fine dining restaurant by renowned Quebec chef, Martin Gagné.
