SPRING 2019 DREAMSCAPES 45 C onsidered the Grand Lady of Dunedin, Florida, the Fenway Hotel has just reopened after a major renova- tion. A member of Marriott's Autograph Collection, the historic hotel offers 83 guest rooms and suites a few blocks from downtown. The Chophouse restaurant features chop- house cuts, a seasonal menu and an extensive whisky and Scotch collection. The Dunedin History Museum will host tours and provide a rotating collection of city artifacts in the lobby. Listen to live music in the lobby throughout the week or head outdoors to the famous lawn for croquet, badminton and Taoist tai chi classes. FenwayHotel.com COURTESY AUTOGRAPH COLLECTION K ind Traveler is the first socially conscious "Give + Get" hotel booking platform to connect travellers to hotels with charitable affiliations. Based on "kind factors," hotel partners must also select a charitable affiliation that empowers communities or the environment or protects animals. For instance, Stonefield Villa Resort in Saint Lucia uses eco-friendly amenities, offers an organic farm-to-table experience, has a no- plastic-straw policy, composts its organic waste and manages a bee program. For every booking, a US$10 nightly donation is made to the hotel's charity of choice, Pawasol Pour Ti Mamai, an organization which provides the basic needs in education and health care for underprivileged children thereby empow- ering struggling Saint Lucian families. By booking Stonefield Villa Resort directly through Kind Traveler, the guest is making a conscientious decision to support a great cause—a triple win shared by the traveller, the hotel and the charity. kindtraveler.com STONEFIELD VILLA RESORT V isitors to Vienna can now gain access to more than 60 of the city's most popular attractions, tours and museums—ranging from Schönbrunn Palace to the giant Ferris wheel—directly from their smart phone.
