So I’ve been MIA from the blog lately, but I think I have a pretty good excuse, as I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on a Texas travel feature for our November issue. For the latest installment of “Where To Stay Now,” I picked up where Suzy Banks left off in 2004, and checked into two dozen new (or newly renovated) hotels and resorts across the state. It was, as you can imagine, an arduous assignment, what with all the breakfasts in bed and poolside lounging. On Friday, I will reveal my 10 favorites. So stay tuned!
