Tripping with: TV Host and Actress Carly Steel


What I love most about LA is its diversity; there really is something for everyone! Beach, mountains, city, town…you name it, L.A. has it. My favorite spot is the Chateau Marmont because it really encapsulates old Hollywood glamour, and there’s always an interesting crowd there. I love the new Nobu Malibu too; Executive Chef Gregorio Stephenson has done an incredible job with the menu and it’s right on the beach so you can eat fabulous sushi with the waves almost crashing on your table.

Hotel Review: Hotel Missoni Edinburgh


When Rosita and Ottavio Missoni decided to expand their fashion emporium to encompass hotel, they zoomed in on Edinburgh, a city first fell in love with decades ago in their courtship days. Opened in June 2009, it was the first ever Missoni hotel (Hotel Missoni Kuwait has since followed suit) to see the light of day. When Luxury Beat was in Edinburgh recently, we decided to put the hotel to the test.
