We like hotels like some people like
sunshine, activism, festivals, Brooklyn and
keeping plastic out of the ocean.
We love everything about them.

For a day, a week, or a month…for business or pleasure,
they can transport you to a different world, create a community,
curate your travels, offer you world class food and cocktails,
encourage you to party your pants off, pamper you
with spa treatments, tempt you to try new things,
guide you to the best spots in town and if
you like, help you step into a new character.

A Hotel Life is your friend…
your really cool friend who constantly travels the world
staying at the most interesting places you can lay your head….so listen to your friends, and let us be your guide to discovering them…

Founder / Editor in Chief

With twenty years in the Lifestyle Hotel business, and a focus on events, bars, nightlife, promotions and marketing, Ben, whose true passion is travel and hotels (and food), decided it was time to make good use of his experience, exploit his resources and lure his contacts into creating AHotelLife.com; an editorial site with a focus on hotel reviews and insider scoop. Educated at London's infamous Groucho club, Ben graduated to the Met bar before an eleven year stint with Ian Schrager and Morgans Hotel Group as VP of Entertainment. He opened Ruschmeyer’s in Montauk in 2010 and currently holds the position of VP Brand Experience with Ian Schrager/Marriott's EDITION hotels.
