Vacation season is upon us and while it’s exciting to get away, it can be a total drag to figure out the details. Luckily, the people at Rocco Forte have taken care of that for us. Rocco Forte’s iconic Brown’s Hotel is celebrating its 175th Anniversary this year. To honor the hotel, now through December 1st, there is an assortment of offerings like a special 175 Years Suite package, a Victorian era-inspired menu, and indulgent spa treatments. Interestingly enough, the hotel has had a number of notable people rest their weary heads there. Folks like Alexander Graham Bell, Rudyard Kipling, Agatha Christie, and even Queen Victoria have all stayed there. Even today, notable artists like Tracey Emin, Paul Smith, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Stella McCartney all frequent the hotel.
