The independently owned Umstead Hotel and Spa, 10 minutes from the Raleigh Durham [N.C.] International Airport, has a lot going for it: a 2007 Condé Nast hot-listed spa and restaurant, 12 acres of lakeside property adjacent to Umstead State Park, an impressive one-of-a-kind collection of contemporary art and stunning indoor/outdoor event space. But what really gets our geek on? Room-service trays have imbedded microchips to alert the dining department when trays are placed in the hall for collection.
