Our Favorite Hotels
As a former interior designer, and later a set designer for television commercials that aired across the U.S. and Canada, hotels are a particular passion for Vicki Scheck. In fact, it was initially her excitement about outstanding hotels that was part of the catalyst for bringing her into the travel business--and it's a passion that now continues in the service of her clients.
Whether you're anticipating a trip or you just like to look at examples of exceptional interior and architectural design, enjoy an armchair journey through the ScheckTrek Picks. Click on the photo to access the galleries.
We also love floating hotels - aka cruise ships - which can be just as extraordinary as their most beautiful land-based counterparts. You can learn more about our favorite cruise lines here.

Yes, Ashford Castle is the ScheckTrek Pick for 'all' of Ireland! It doesn't get better than this.
