February Travel Notes

Your February travel guide.


PUTTIN’ ON THE FRITZ

Situated alongside u?ber-upscale shopping haven Ko?nigsallee, the recently opened The Fritz is a shrewd accommodation choice for swish spring weekenders visiting danceable Du’sseldorf. Discover why the city is firmly on the hippest European travel radars for 2017, while flitting from electric nights spent in the city’s cutting-edge clubs to dulcet daytimes stuffed with gleeful rummaging through its retail chapels. This month, the spectacular Rose Parade, Monday, February 27, will make a memorable addition to your itinerary, the-fritz-hotel.de.

SOMETHING FISHY

The culinarily pleasing Knockranny House Hotel in Mayo will host a weekend celebrating the pleasures of the table with a focus on fish and vegetables this February 17-18. With eating trends turning towards the more environmentally- friendly idea of eating less mass-produced meat, pescetarianism or flexitarianism is fast becoming the new way to dine with a conscience. Join award-winning chef Seamus Commons on a journey to the tastiest ocean depths. The weekend with two nights bed and breakfast and the opportunity to try the fish and vegetable tasting menu on one evening is good value at €199pps, knockrannyhousehotel.ie.

SLEEPING PRETTY

Tim and Kit Kemp open the latest in their sublime line of hotels this month (February 27) with new NYC addition, The Whitby. Located minutes from Central Park and MoMA on West 56th Street, the 16-storey bolthole features 86 chic rooms and suites, a signature restaurant, relaxing library, smart bar, stunning conservatory and a throughly entertaining 130-seat cinema. Like some of its siblings – Crosby Street Hotel (on the street of the same name in SoHo) and the Ham Yard Hotel (on the edge of London’s Soho) – the super-luxe Whitby will also feature floor-to-ceiling windows, many with private terraces, and designer Kit Kemp’s signature style of bold prints, pretty patterns and big brash colours, firmdalehotels.com.
