Cool Sites : Love Hotels
Monday, November 8, 2004 Posted: 09:21 PM JST
My recommendations for cool sites tend to be a bit serious. Today we break that rule with a listing of sites of or about love hotels. That term is out-of-date though. These days they are called 'fashion hotels' or 'boutique hotels'. Enjoy!
