Three things I love: pink, the Roaring Twenties, and vacation. Combine these three and you get the Don CeSar, the Boca Raton, the Chesterfield, the Royal Hawaiian, and the Vinoy Renaissance Resort. Although pink palaces of Mediterranean design were extremely fashionable in the 1920s—Chicago even had its own pink hotel (the Edgewater Beach Hotel)—these are no shabby remnants from the past. All of the hotels listed have undergone millions of dollars in restoration; they still retain a Gatsbyesque grandeur, but they are now equipped with modern, world-class amenities.
Looking to reset after the holidays, my husband and I ducked out for a long weekend. Three days of private travel, wine tasting, and simple tranquility.
