Who says you can't be chic with baby in tow? Meet our San Fran based hotel reviewer - Serena. She is the epitome of the modern woman and she raises the bar of excellence for everyone on the planet.Boho chic style - check. Amazing mum - check. Feeds her family farm to table - check. Smart and savvy as hell - check. Okay, you get the idea. On top of all that, her wayfarer spirit and superior taste have taken her around the world, sampling the finest hotels and most amazing destinations. Her mama side scouts outs the best hotels for family retreats - think African Safari not Disneyland - and her adventurous side takes her to far off romantic getaways with her hubby, dancing-on-the-tables hot spots for girls' weekends and the most exclusive under-the-radar locations for DIGITAL DETOX. Serena's impressive traveling pedigree dates back to her college days whenshe met M. on a tiny, secluded island in the Great Barrier Reef. From there, they sailed the South Pacific to Tahiti, Fiji, Western Samoa, Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii. That was just the beginning! And now we are thrilled to bring you her favorite and ongoing hotel picks around the globe.
