Reviews - What do customers think about Travel + Leisure's The Best of 2008: The Year's Greatest Hotels, Resorts, and Spas (Travel & Leisure)?

Disappointing  Aug 6, 2008
Though this book isn't necessarily terrible, I can't imagine anyone to whom I would recommend it.

My hope for this book was to learn about resorts around the world. Featured within its pages are hundreds of hotels, most of them from outside the US; so in that regard, the book met my expectations. But each hotel gets a paragraph of vague description at most, accompanied by a single photograph of something completely unappealing. Interested in visiting France's Hotel-Restaurant Bras? If not, then an enormous photograph of a patch of concrete isn't likely to convince you. Another entry is for a converted farmhouse in Europe; and while the brief description mentions the owners, the history, the decor of the place, it's accompanied by a picture of half of an ottoman against a backdrop of a wood-paneled wall.

Imagine yourself reading this book and saying to yourself, "Until I saw this picture of half of an ottoman, I only thought I knew what paradise was; now, I know the truth". If that seems plausible, then by all means, pick up a copy for yourself.
