Pioneering the changing tide in the hotel industry and bringing a new experience to vacation stays, is entrepreneur and hotelier Ben Pundole. A jet-setting hotel expert, Pundole is on a mission to change the way travelers experience hotels. His latest venture, A Hotel Life, is a website that aims to showcase the best hotels around the world. AHL calls itself a guide to discovering the best new places to stay when traveling.
Pundole has spent twenty years in the hotel industry, with a focus on what he calls "lifestyle hotels;" a new breed of boutique hotels that emphasize design, food, events, and experience, instead of the standard "heads in beds" approach. An alumnus of London's Groucho Club, the Met bar, and an executive at Morgans Hotel Group, Pundole recently opened the Hamptons hotel Ruschmeyer's and co-founded hotel group King and Grove. With A Hotel Life, he brings together editors and friends to collate a series of reviews that allows those looking for a luxurious travel experience to choose from a number of fresh and exciting new global destinations. We sat down with Pundole to discuss his new project and how he plans to change the way we experience travel. More»

Each Fashion Week, a certain dance occurs, both for the city's brightest young things and for its hottest new places to carry them into the morning. Status this week has little to do with your front row fashion seat (at least not anymore), and a lot to do with which high end after-party you are spotted attending, and where its being held. And, while this season there's been no one clear winner for "new it-spot," (Le Baron was an anticipated fav, though that has been stalled--and, after last night's Zspoke party, it's clearly still tough to beat the Boom Boom), there is a new player hitting the city's FW party circuit: meet Mister H. in the Mondrian Hotel.
