Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Collection: Stay Awhile

Please forgive me for being remiss, dear readers: I’ve known about Mr & Mrs Smith for years, but have neglected to share until now.

Allow me to remedy my oversight and introduce you to some truly spectacular couple-friendly “hotel porn” from around the world.

A carefully curated collection of sexy, stylish boutique hotels and vacation rentals lushly detailed in a popular series of guidebooks and a members-only website, Mr & Mrs Smith was first conceived by a British couple seeking to avoid lodgings billed as romantic but in truth riddled with doilies, bland food and early-to-bed pensioners. (Oh, England…how far you’ve come in the last decade.) “Mr & Mrs Smith” alludes to a traditional British hotel sign-in for a couple taking an illicit holiday.

Now reaching far beyond the UK, the company is now a de facto travel agency with offices in Melbourne, New York and London, offering intimate lodgings on almost every continent, priced from mid-range to high-end. Their latest lineup of recommended hotels stretches across Southeast Asia, from Thailand to Bali and back again.

In my opinion, a few things make Mr & Mrs Smith special in the travel realm:

– All of the hotel reviews on their website are written anonymously, but it’s kind of fun to know that these hotel guests are often well-known writers, designers, artists, actors and entertainers…who can generally choose to stay anywhere they’d damn well like

– Cheeky destination itineraries always feature a section called “Worth Getting Out of Bed For”

– Lodgings are evaluated in terms of the sexiest room, the top restaurant table, whether or not there’s room service, what to pack, and kid-and-pet-friendliness; the main focus is on a lodging’s suitability for busy, discerning couples seeking an enticing level of travel luxury

– Anyone can book hotel deals through their round-the-clock booking agents, but members are offered three levels of service:

BlackSmith (free)
SilverSmith ($60/year)
GoldSmith (wait for it…$600/year)

All members receive access to the website’s hotel and travel-product deals and perks, help from the company’s booking agents, and special amenities awaiting them in their hotel rooms. The mid-range also gets you half-price offers at new hotels, while the whole shebang gives you white-glove concierge service, access to a slew of airport lounges, and a shot at hotel room upgrades.

The best part? Now you can stop using Pinterest and Facebook as your main means of avoiding work, and instead lose yourself in travel daydreams amongst the splashy pages of the Mr & Mrs Smith website.

Just try to leave a little time to actually go somewhere.
