It was our good fortune to attend the Relais & Chateaux 2015 North American Showcase held last evening at the Peninsula Beverly Hills Hotel. The showcase included member properties in North American as well as delegations representing over 500 Relais & Chateaux properties around the world.
We concentrated our attention to the booths representing properties in California which included the Meadowood Napa Valley and Auberge du Soleil. We learned that some interesting additions have taken place at Auberge du Soleil since we stayed there.
Again many changes have taken place since Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa located in Rancho Santa Fe joined R & C properties.
Other properties in California include L'Auberge in Carmel and Hotel Les Mars in Healdsberg.
Relais & Chateaux proprieties extend world wide.
Cocktails and canapes were served in elegant style to add to the luster of the evening. It was also an opportunity to meet and chat with other travel writers, some acquaintances of many years.
