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.
