Five new lodgings that cater to epicurean guests: the Serrano in San Francisco; the Hotel Monaco in Salt Lake City; two more W hotels, The Court and The Tuscany, in Manhattan; and the sprawling Resort at Summerlin outside Las Vegas.
Take Me to the River
White water and red wines are the stars of two expeditions this month from Idaho's Salmon River Outfitters. Spend days shooting the rapids and nights sampling West Coast vintages with dinner ($1,295 for six days; 800-346-6204).
Now you can entertain like a studio head: invite friends to a movie at a hotel screening room. London's One Aldwych has a private dining area next to its theater; Manhattan's Envoy Club offers a bar in the back row; and tiny Mosquito Blue in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, runs films under a thatched roof.
