Hot Topic: Hotel Design
Nancy Novogrod offered a list of ways to improve your hotel-room experience in her June Editor’s Note. Here, feedback from T+L’s readers.
My pet peeve: you can get free high-speed Internet at a Fairfield Inn but be charged $15 per day for it at a five-star hotel. —Jenora Demers, Kankakee, Ill.
No Free Lunch
You make some good points, but if a hotel doesn’t get free Internet, why would you expect them to just give it away? —Pamela Gordon, Los Angeles, Calif.
Suggestions for Better Bathrooms
1. More hooks—for towels, robes, etc. 2. A three-way mirror. 3. A night-light, to prevent a fall into the tub! —Harriet Warm, Cleveland, Ohio
Reader’s Find: A Nuevo Latino Restaurant in Downtown New York City
I love discovering new Latino restaurants—they take me back to my days of living in South America. Recently, while wandering the streets of New York City’s Lower East Side, I was drawn to Rayuela (dinner for two $100), with its private booth seating and rustic-chic décor. There, I sampled some of the most delicious estilo libre (freestyle) Latino food I’ve ever tasted—traditional Spanish and South American dishes (from arepas to arroz con pollo) with a modern twist. There’s even a ceviche bar upstairs. And their steak rivals those done on the parrilla (grill) in Buenos Aires. —Judith Jones, Los Angeles, Calif.
