The Fontainebleau

An important weekend deserves a memorable hotel. That’s why for our wedding tasting we stayed at the iconic Fontainebleau Hotel. I always heard impressive things about the Fontainebleau and being a huge fan of Old Hollywood, I loved the history behind it. The hotel opened in 1954 and everyone from Frank Sinatra to Elvis Presley to Presidents like John F. Kennedy have stayed there. The Fontainebleau surpassed every expectation I had. We opened the door to our room and were greeted by floor to ceiling windows with a balcony overlooking the ocean. The view was picturesque and the room and view instantly made me feel zen. The hotel has several different heated pools around the property and connects to its own private beach. Being a total beach boy, we grabbed our towels and headed to the sand where servers brought over Sancerre & Pear White Sangria…heaven!After a little R&R we retreated back to our room to get ready for a night out with some friends. Just when I thought it couldn’t get better, I hopped in the shower and saw that Molton Brown products filled the shelves adding to the spa feel of the room.I wish one night could have turned into a full week at this beautiful resort. The restaurants, service and hospitality were superb. The Fontainebleau is a very special place and I will forever remember how much it added to an unforgettable weekend.
