    “Brought to life with dazzling photography, the book guides you to funky, extravagant and far-from-the-maddening crowd hotels encompassing North America.” — Food & Travel, London

     

    This Great Escapes North America book is a revised and updated edition scours the North American continent for the most extraordinary, elegant, and inspiring places to rest your head. From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters, be inspired by the hotels, inns, guesthouses, ranches, wigwams, and more.
    From dazzling cities to eccentric small towns, from vast mountains to plains as far as the eye can see, Canada and the United States offer an awe-inspiring abundance of travel adventures. In this revised and updated hotel guide, Taschen scours the North American continent for the most extraordinary, elegant, and inspiring places to rest your head.

    Coast to coast, from North to south, spanning the rustic, the boutique, the period-piece and the architectural gem, this is the ultimate directory in tasteful accommodation. Special highlights include raised safari tents in California’s El Capitan Canyon, a historic ranch nestled in a Death Valley oasis, a Frank Lloyd Wright house overlooking Mirror Lake, Wisconsin, and a 1930s hotel in Texas where James Dean once stayed.
