LUXE City Guides

Anyone with a smart phone can track down a Michelin-star restaurant in Paris or point you in the direction of the Forbidden City. But this slim, deeply researched line of guidebooks—don’t expect maps, illustrations, or any of the otherwise Google-able info you’d find stuffed in fatter versions—specializes in the type of locales known only to the natives. It’s the kind of unabashedly opinionated editorial advice that will send you happily flying solo. And it’s executed with so much brevity and class that the guides can fit comfortably into a pocket or your carry-on.

This was stupid

This was really stupid and i don't have a use for it so i threw it out. It was a waste.

Fancy Brochure

For the price of one of these, a more comprehensive guide can be found. I just wasn't impressed by it.

Not really applicable for me

It seems like a pretty nice guide, but it really didn't enhance my life in the same way the other products I've gotten from Birchbox do. I can always look up points of interest online if I'm going to New York. A static guide isn't going to always be relevant if I go in the future. This didn't really do anything for me. I can see it being a good product for someone who travels and has many chances to go to New York on a regular basis though. Just not a fit for me.

Meh

Lot's of better ways of finding out about a city in the age of the smartphone. If it had a 24/48/72-hr "must do" feature, with convenient maps, then maybe, but even those get dated quickly (esp. w/r/t food and bars) in the best cities in the world.

kind of neat

would have been cooler if i lived in one of these cities, but since i don't it's just kind of an oddity i will forget about if ever was actually visiting these cities. would probably find any information in it on my phone anyway.

Fun but selective

I really enjoyed reading through this, but the guide I got was for Chicago and I have no plans to visit Chicago. So I went on here as well as the Luxe website and was pretty disappointed that there weren't more cities to choose from. Being from Seattle, I'd really like to see one of these guides for here, that's how useful it seems. There just isn't a wide enough selection, which ultimately makes it useless for me.

not applicable

I don't really know why this product exists in the age of the smartphone. Even if the information is good, and I was not in the city of the sample unit I received so I don't know, I think a digital version would be far more useful, because this paper copy would get left behind in my hotel, but my phone would go with me.

It's okay

I received this in my September box. I don't see myself going to Chicago any time soon, so I don't know exactly how useful this will be to me.

Cool, but could be dated

This is a great idea and one I applaud. The presentation is well thought out. My only issue is that this sort of product can be easily dated. We all know that attractions, businesses, and restaurants come and go in big cities, and there lies the problem. I still keep it on my coffee table because it's a good conversation starter and always interesting to look at.
