It seemed fairly easy to find cool places to stay around Asia. America is proving tougher. I've seen a lot of naffness and crazy prices. I normally search blogs or sites such as iescape and Mr & Mrs Smith, but I just stumbled upon this site called Boutique Homes which has chic homes, quirky cabins and small hotels with heaps of character. They feature places all over the globe. I could have posted a million more photos but you get the idea...amazing...problem solved.
