Two of our favorite hotels in Florida

March 19th, 2013

In one of our recent posts about Spring Break vacation, we discussed some of our favorite hotels to travel to during this spring. In this post will take a closer look at two cool hotels in Florida, which we all know is a place that can party with the best!

Wyndham Garden Clearwater Beach hotel, which is located not far from the beautiful Tampa Bay, is nestled right on a charming and private 260-foot white sand beach. This hotel is a perfect blend of contemporary amenities with impeccable service for the ultimate Clearwater Beach getaway. The hotel is 15 miles from St Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport and 24 miles from Tampa International Airport, offering easy access to the area’s best family-friendly attractions, championship golf courses, shopping and sporting events.

The InterContinental Miami lets you discover a new dimension of sophisticated elegance. Set in the heart of downtown Miami’s thriving financial and business district, InterContinental Miami offers rich accommodations and breathtaking views of Biscayne Bay. From the dramatic 34-story marble exterior to the soaring atrium lobby, InterContinental Miami specializes in stylish flair.

Atlanta Hotels

March 19th, 2013
Atlanta hotels offer everything a savvy traveler would want while preserving the traditions of a bygone era. The Georgian Terrace, for instance, is a fine example of historic Atlanta hotels and of great value for your money. Its construction dates to 1911 and while boasting old world ambience it affords guests all the modern conveniences. It’s situated across from the fox Theater, not far from the Centennial Olympic Park or the downtown area. If you’re in Atlanta for other than leisure, the hotel’s business center will come in handy. And in the rooms, you’ll have access to all the necessary perks such as high speed Internet. You may relax by the rooftop pool or work out at the fitness center. If you have any requests, the concierge will be happy to assist you. And feel free to bring your pets. Like in many Atlanta hotels, they’re invited too.

The Hilton Atlanta is another hotel that boasts a central location in the heart of downtown Atlanta. It’s within a walking distance of some of the best attractions in the city, including the Georgia Aquarium, CNN Center and the Georgia World Congress Center. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is just a 15 minute drive from the Atlanta hotel.

Hilton Atlanta

The Comfort Suites are yet another excellent choice in inexpensive Atlanta hotels. It’s within a short distance of popular attractions like Six Flags Water Park, the Georgia Aquarium, Cumberland Mall and underground Atlanta. Most two star Atlanta hotels keep the frills to a minimum without compromising on comfort or service. But at the Comfort Suites, you’ll be delighted to know that all accommodations have wireless Internet, microwave oven, refrigerator and cable television. There’s an outdoor pool and business center as well.

Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead is set within the upscale uptown neighborhood of Buckhead. Renovated guestrooms include state-of-the-art Internet access, and sleek flat screen HDTVs with Roomlinx interactive iTV. You can also enjoy views of the Japanese Zen Garden.

But if staying in one of the luxurious Atlanta hotels is what you desire, the selection is truly impressive. The Omni Hotel at the CNN Center, for example, recently underwent a one hundred million dollar renovation. It’s one of the Four Diamond Atlanta hotels and is situated in the heart of the city. It connects to the Phillips Arena and Georgia World Congress Center. It’s also the only one of the Atlanta hotels to enjoy close proximity to the Georgia Dome. This award winning establishment welcomes visitors with elegant rooms and suites. They’re fitted with the best amenities and serviced with the highest level of attention in the industry.

Atlanta hotels are everything you can possibly want and more.

Whirlwind weekend in Vegas

February 24th, 2011

Travel is great in small or large doses (I prefer larger doses). But when you can’t get away for that long trip, a couple shorts trips can certainly suffice; which led my husband and I to lively Las Vegas. The best part about Sin City? Just two days is plenty! It’s long enough to get away from the daily grind, but short enough that you don’t feel totally exhausted.

We arrived Friday mid-morning and started the day by exploring our hotel resort. This weekend we chose to stay at Bellagio (I found a good deal on our site). We shopped, then dined in the Palazzo’s Dos Caminos–A New York restaurant we love, now also living on the West Coast. We finished dinner in plenty of time for Holly Madison’s super fun show at Planet Hollywood.

The next day began with massages at Bellagio Spa (any spa service gives you all-day access to the lovely spa), lunch next door at the new Cosmopolitan Hotel, shopping at nearby Caesars Palace, back to the spa to take advantage of the relaxing sauna (quite a nice retreat after the barrage of crowds on The Strip), and we finished the night with dinner and a show at our hotel.

All that in two days! What would you do with just 48 hours in Vegas?

New year, new resolution, new travel plan

January 6th, 2011

Travel often tops new-year resolution lists. Mine usually includes something grandiose that gets sidelined –mostly due to work schedules or lack of planning. So this year my husband and I are trying a new tactic to ensure travel. Rather than say (again) that we’re going to make it Tokyo, we’ve agreed to take smaller trips more often. Our goal is simple: one place, once a month. To keep it attainable, it can be near or far, any amount of time (even a quick weekend). Just so long as we go somewhere.

I’m off to a good start. I just booked tickets for a weekend in LA to visit a friend. I found some fun ideas in our Los Angeles travel guide of things to do but would love to hear from you! So tell me: In a Friday night to Sunday morning trip…what must I do/see/experience? (Thanks in advance!)

What are your travel resolutions?
