Set in the famous Mala Strana quarter of Prague, an historical area protected by UNESCO in the cultural, commercial and social heart of the city, the five-star Hotel Hoffmeister personifies the charm and romance of this splendid European capital. Known as the "golden city of a hundred spires," Prague's timeless quilt of architectural treasures, some dating back to the fourteenth century, stretches from the Renaissance and Baroque up to art nouveau and cubist styles of the twentieth century. Also known as the "Paris of Eastern Europe" for its beauty, fascination and romance, this magical city has been a tourist magnet for centuries.  

The Hotel Hoffmeister, a luxuriously restored residence renowned for its elegant 1920s décor, boasts a gallery of remarkable caricature portraits drawn by Prague artist and bon vivant Adolf Hoffmeister. Depicting the crème de la crème of the artistic community of the first half of the century, Hoffmeister captured the essence of his famous friends and acquaintances - Pablo Picasso, Bertold Brecht, Samuel Beckett, John Steinbeck, Edward Albee, Jean-Paul Sartre, Salvador Dali, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Charlie Chaplin and more.  

The Hoffmeisters welcomed guests to their private home over the decades and in the nineties, Martin Hoffmeister rebuilt the family home into Hotel Hoffmeister and is carrying on the proud tradition of welcoming guests to Prague. This architecturally interesting hotel combines comfort and convenience with nostalgia for a more romantic era - one that valued culture and beauty above technology and utility. 

Tucked away beneath the hills of Prague Castle, near the Vltava River and close to cultural attractions and shopping, the hotel offers 36 rooms including eight suites and two large suites. Furnished in rich fabrics and colors characteristic of the art-deco style, the rooms offer every modern convenience without sacrificing charm and chic. 

The Hotel Hoffmeister's renowned ADA restaurant, which offers Czech specialties and international cuisines, attracts the elite of Prague culture, politics and business, as well as foreign visitors wanting to savor authentic Czech dishes. The hotel's RIA café provides a splendid setting for casual dining in the historical heart of the city, while its Lily Bar features selected labels from the Czech Republic's Bohemian and Moravian wine-producing regions.  

The best time to visit Prague is in the early spring or late fall - before or after the tourist crunch, when the weather is sunny and warm.

Many of Prague's prime cultural attractions are within walking distance of the hotel - St. Nicholas' Church, Tyn Church, Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, the Old Town Square and its famous Astronomical Clock, Wenceslas Square, Jewish Cemetery, the National Theatre. 

Blackberry Farm

Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains is the fabulous Blackberry Farm Resort.  Autumn comes in earnest to Blackberry in November, when the leaves carpet the pathways and trails and transform the Smoky Mountains into a spectacular tapestry of gold, scarlet and tangerine.  Chef Fleer creates  dishes from produce grown right there at Blackberry Farm and at neighboring forms in West Millers Cove. Take a break from shopping, wrapping, preparations and parties and celebrate this glorious season sooner rather than later.  The greatest gift could be taking time to relax with a good book, hiking with a companion or enjoying a picnic with someone special.  As the shadows grow longer over Hesse Creek the peak of the trout season is here.  The cooler temperatures ignite a trout's feeding activity.  Blackberry is the first Orvis endorsed lodge east of the Mississippi to receive the Lodge of the Year Award.  Throughout December children of all ages are welcome at Blackberry with special Camp Blackberry activities for kids every day. It's a great place.  Talk to Maxine, who's been there and can tell you all about it.
