Summary

Second in our new Best of the Best series, Florida's Best Place to Stay is aimed at travelers who won't settle for second-best! Readers will find only distinctive, rave hotels. Florida is the world's tourism blockbuster, and many visitors are seeking an up-market travel experience. And Florida serves it up on a silver platter: lavish resorts, sumptuous spas, trend-setting dining and the world's grandest yachts. About 100 top-shelf hotels and resorts weill be featured.The book will be similar to Open Road's 'Best Places to Stay' chapter featured in each of our destination guides, and will go in-depth to include much more detail than the usual paragraph or two most guides give to hotel write-ups. Author and professional travel writer Janet Groene will explore the ins and outs of such luxurious hotels as the Mandarin Oriental Miami, the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island, the Chesterfield Palm Beach, and Sanibel Harbor Resort & Spa. Select cruises and Florida-based charter yachts will be featured as well.Each entry will also feature the following:oBest of Nearby Area: (local galleries, world class golf course, festival or cultural event);oBest Room (for view, unusual furnishings);oBest of the Best Feature (s): (e.g. attracts avid tennis crowd, has best day-sailer fleet, has private cigar club);oBest for (whom): (e.g. families, singles, honeymooners, adventure travelers);oBest Dining (best dining room within the resort, best meal outside property, signature dishes at either).
