It's Thursday and it feels like the last 400 meters of a marathon. It's almost time for that finish line beer! We are gearing up for a big home installation this weekend, but some of you may be taking a mid-winter trip or planning for a getaway in the upcoming weeks. 

Back when we started our list of blog ideas, a Top "insert number here" series was included. Alas, it's Thursday and we present our Thursday Three: Travel Style. Inspired by some recent and quick travel, we wanted to scope the web and rack our brains for a couple of hotels worthy of spending your time (and money!). Everyone has a different travel preference -  budget conscious, splurge, or book for a unique experience. We are a mix of all - some nights a clean Holiday Inn Express does the job but other times we want to sleep in the best on the block.

1. FOR THE COMFORT: Hotel Diva

Once upon a time, we were both runners and Courtney decided to sign up for the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco. Hotel Diva was high on the short list for unique, chic as can be, central, and affordable. We ended up taking a different route but definitely will keep this in mind for our next West Coast trip to "The City".

2. FOR THE TEXTILES: Kimpton Hotel Palomar DC

The Kimpton Hotel Palomar drew us in at navy blue and textile galore! From the lobby to the guest bathrooms, no detail was missed in this downtown DC hotel. Plus, we noticed they have $1 nightly cocktails. What's not to love about that?!

3. FOR THE BAR: The Spectator Hotel

Dramatic spaces have a time and a place and this is it! We are loving everything about the Spectator's Bar/Hotel - from the built ins and trim detail to the streamlined green bar stools, our designer hearts are full for this Charleston speak easy space.

Since we have spread the travel bug, which of these would you like to visit?
