Posted by Sade Williams

“Because I travel so much, it’s important for me to feel at home even when I’m out. That’s why I visit the same hotels around the world again and again. That way I know I can get a nice smoothie, for instance – and I get to know the neighbourhood in which the hotel is located,” says Pernille Teisbaek, a well-known and highly respected fashion influencer based in the United States of America, in an interview recently.

The location of the hotel is also especially important to Pernille Teisbæk. And so, she concludes that a hotel must be ‘a home away from home’.
