Playlist: The Check-In

There are many things that enhance our memories of a city—and many that help us recall these moments once we have returned home. The smell of sand and sea may instantly transport you back to a beach in Portugal, the sound of honking horns and indistinct chatter may remind you of a busy New York street. Traveling is a multisensory experience—that’s why we created a set of playlists to aid your travels.

Our second collection—a mix of funky hip-hop, contemporary R&B, and dance/electronic beats—is meant to elevate your first moments in a new destination. Whether you’re landing on the tarmac or checking into your hotel, these arrivals represent a moment of celebration and accomplishment (and if you’re lucky, an opportunity to take your experience to the next level). Book a first-class ticket, accept the offer to upgrade your room, extend your stay—and treat yourself well throughout every journey.
