I've been getting Andrew Harper newsletters in the mail lately.  Have you seen those things?  The resorts and exclusive properties featured look sublime!  But there must have been a glitch in their mailing list when they crossed it with what they think their target demographic is, because I would never imagine spending that obscene amount of money on a hotel.  


Swagger is nice, but I prefer places (and people!) with authenticity, character, and soul. Under $100 is ideal.  $125 is a compromise.  $150 is a stretch.  But what do you know?  They're out there and here are my faves.
