Rosewood Hotels & Resorts debuted Rosewood Conversations, a new, interactive digital platform that celebrates Rosewood’s destinations through the lens of the world’s most distinguished personalities, local tastemakers and traveler insiders. The online hub brings Rosewood’s A Sense of Place philosophy to life with conversational content from a rich network of creative talents, bold personalities, and travel and lifestyle journalists who intimately know Rosewood locations.
Intended to inspire and inform through unique perspectives on travel, art, fashion, cuisine and culture, the digital platform is updated weekly to serve as an insider’s travel guide for each destination and a resource for every stage of the travel process. It will offer an enlightening channel for readers to dive deeper into the travel lifestyle topics that intrigue them, start conversations, and share experiences from their own illuminating journeys.
“Rather than being driven by our hotels, the content on Rosewood Conversations is completely dedicated to and driven by the destinations we find inspiring,” Rosewood Hotel Group CEO Sonia Cheng said in a statement. “New, authentic, and unexpected experiences that today’s traveler is looking for are the kind of discoveries Rosewood Conversations will reveal.”
On Rosewood Conversations, readers will find distinctly personal content—akin to that of a luxury travel and lifestyle magazine rather than a typical hotel blog—with first-person accounts, original photography, interactive maps, interviews with notable locals, neighborhood guides, and insider insights.
The first destinations to be featured on Rosewood Conversations include Beijing; Washington, D.C.; New York City; Bermuda; Puebla, Mexico; and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Included in the debut stories are interviews with make-up artist Bobbi Brown on her packing tips and tricks and with acclaimed mixologist Alastair Burgess on his favorite tipples in London, as well as selections from fashion illustrator Clym Evernden’s travel sketchbook.
Readers can also peruse local guides to several different Manhattan neighborhoods, from style maven Iris Apfel’s go-to haunts on the Upper East Side to popular custom tailor Jake Mueser’s favorite spots in the West Village. Additionally, several stories will tap the intelligence of local Washington, D.C. insiders, from acclaimed, Michelin-starred Chef Eric Ziebold to stylish local retailer Anna Kahoe, to provide a multifaceted look at the city and its neighborhoods.
