Chicago's Coolest New Hostel
The Hollander
REPORTER: Alyssa Brown


PSA: This is not your typical hostel! Located in Chicago’s Wicker Park, this boutique hostel emphasizes great design and the sharing economy. What does that mean, exactly? Well, The Hollander is a gorgeous overnight accommodation spot where you can share rooms with friends or strangers depending on the setup. You’ll probably share a bathroom too. And you can count on those spaces being pretty darn good looking and lovely to share with the folks around you.

REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

In Panama City, modern society cozies up to the Old World for a unique and charming experience, one that’s perfectly captured at The American Trade Hotel. The American Trade Hotel—AKA the Ace Panama—is a vibrant gem at “the ecological and cultural crossroads of the Americas.” Housed in a gorgeously restored landmark building, the getaway for classy jetsetters and worldly travelers alike only opened its doors a few years ago and already has a grand reputation.

It’s the hotel’s breezy balance of chic and comfortable that does it. Furniture pieces of bold earth tones are picturesquely set against black and white paint and tile in the rooms’ simple, stylish aesthetics. Meanwhile, contemporary minimalism warmly welcomes guests to the lounges and garden courtyards. At the American Trade Hotel, everything feels like in its rightful place and nothing is overdone. As we’ve adored the American Trade Hotel since it hit the hospitality scene, we chatted with Spotted SF’s Leslie Santarina, who was recently a guest. Even though her ventures are predominantly based in San Francisco, she has a wonderful habit of exploring the rest of the world too—and she has good taste.

Here to chat all things Arrive, the gals from Layered Vintage give us the full scoop and fill us in on exactly what to order at the bar. Cheers to you, ladies!
