NYTimes Sunday Travel Roundup

Posted in: News


Following our Sunday night Oscars soirée we only yesterday got down to sorting through our weekend media infusion. We found a cocktail-painted Sunday’s Times’ Travel Section—predictions scribbled across the front page—under the sofa.

We apologize for our tardy digest. These travel section features had us particularly interested:

Travel by rail in Europe is set to get easier
Rail travel will soon be faster between certain cities, including London-Paris (2 hours, 15 minutes), and Paris-Strasbourg (2 hours, 20 minutes).

Street theater at the pull of a curtain
Some suggestions for landing hotel rooms with the most intoxicating views in Rome, Paris, Vienna, New York, and Tokyo. These ain’t Cheapo rooms, be forewarned…

Lower-priced rooms, with boutique style
Now we’re talkin’, peeps. Hotels catering to younger business travelers are getting smarter designs and lower rates. Focused on US destinations.

Q&A Getting Compensation for Lost Luggage
Who’s responsible when your baggage is picked up by the wrong passenger? Yikes.

And then there were lots of stories about cruises
