You’re about to experience one of my favorite cities on the entire planet – San Francisco! Every time I visit there’s only one place I ever stay…that’s the Westin St. Francis just off of Union Square. And trust me: I’ve been coming here a LONG time!
A holiday tradition for many families continues to get bigger and better at the Westin La Cantera Resort — and it ALL ENDS January 6th! The popular Hill Country Holidays at the Westin features free children’s activities and great holiday fun, whether your a guest or just looking to make a day of it…
The real spirit of the holidays comes alive each year (the day after Thanksgiving to be exact!) at The Houstonian Hotel in scenic Uptown. Lavish decorations grace what seems like every square inch of this luxurious property, making it the ultimate destination for shoppers and admirers alike to revel in the joyous mood.
Cutting edge technology… in the bathroom? Maybe I just don’t get out enough, but I’ve never seen anything like this before.
For it’s size, only 62 rooms, this could be one of the most expensive hotels in the world… The beautiful Bardessono boasts a PLATINUM LEDE certification – every aspect of this hotel was constructed to be environmentally friendly, and it is appealing.
What a romantic setting! Imagine a sipping a cold glass of champagne as you watch the magnificent sun set over the rolling Texas Hill Country. That’s the view at Francesca’s restaurant at the Westin La Cantera Hotel and Spa. But, the view is only the beginning—the food is fantastic.
Lamb is one my favorite dishes…lighter than beef, perfect with so many fabulous sauces and a great accompaniment to a glass of Burgundy.
The cupcake craze is fun, but just in time for the holidays, Goodtaste with Tanji is going to get you ready for the next hot trend in dessert delicacies—macaroons.
Welcome to Texas Y’all. This is the most delicious dessert from the Cabernet Grill in Fredericksburg. It’s served with Jack Daniels chocolate ice cream.
I found the most charming, unique bed and breakfast in Fredericksburg called the Cotton Gin Village.
Nothing cools you down like an ice cold Mojito – the flavors of fresh lime juice, mint and rum are incredibly refreshing. The key to making the perfect Mojito is to use fresh ingredients and to avoid a couple of very common mistakes-don’t tear the mint leaves for starters!
The Westin La Cantera Resort has it all – a beautiful getaway nestled in the Texas Hill Country. Nearby the exclusive Shops at La Cantera, Fiesta Texas, Sea World, the Texas Hill Country wineries.
This is the time of year to dine at Francesca’s to take in the great sunsets. Try their new Farm to Table menu—veggies and other items sourced from local producers. They really do taste better!
