Criminal Minds star Kirsten Vangsness shares her top travel spots and favorite vacation finds.
I really like The Quin and The NoMad in New York. I like hotels that are cushy but not stuffy. I like them to feel like humans picked them out. Oh, the Sunset Marquis here in Los Angeles is amazing. I've gone to too many hotels in Los Angeles for someone who lives here.
I like a steam shower. I like a good bed. I like all the things. And then I will take all the toiletries for "pal packs," which I keep in the car for homeless people. I make little Ziploc bags with a granola bar, hotel soaps, and whatever.

I need to travel more. I'm kind of a homebody. England, France, Ireland, Norway, Italy—see my people! Italians and Norwegians are my people.
I've discovered that when I travel, I am a friend in the world, without knowing it. I swear, I walk through life in Los Angeles and no one stops me or recognizes me. But I went overseas and everywhere I went, I was famous!
I haven't gone to many places, but so far, London. I want to go back.
