It’s time to book some flights and make some hotel reservations. If you’re constantly on the go, you’ll want something that makes your life a little easier when it comes to making your home away from home as fabulous as possible. Hence, my new favorite app, the W Hotel iPhone App.

As a long-time fan of the W Hotel group, I really try to stay at one of these fabulous hotels whenever I have to jet somewhere (which I will evidently be doing a lot more of, thankfully.) W Hotels are known for being some of the first to create that boutique hotel experience, from the incredibly stylish motifs to the uber comfortable rooms to the soundtracks that follow you throughout your stay. They’ve created a strong lifestyle brand where pretty much anything you need to live your most fabulous life in style, they’ve got you covered.

The iPhone app not only allows you to view and book rooms at any of their properties worldwide, but you can book restaurant reservations, make requests of the concierge during your stay and the ability to shop their fashion and home brand, the Global Glam collection (perfect for that item you forgot to pack.) There’s even a local weather forecast to help you manage what to wear wherever you are.

My favorite part? The integrated music platform which allows you to stream music selections during your stay and even after you leave, curated by W’s Global Music Director, Michaelangelo L’Acqua. Artists like Janelle Monae, Cee Lo Green and Neon Trees will come through your iPod based on the experience you’d like to create. Work out to a streaming mix from their Sweat workout facilities, chill out with a poolside mix from Wet Deck, add some sexy time with a mix from Living Room or After Dark. Just a little way to keep that luxury lifestyle vibe going all the time.

Download now, reuse often. It’s an app for the way you should be living.
