ITC Mughal Agra, A Taj Mahal Luxury Hotel Review

The ITC Mughal Agra hotel is tucked away on a very unassuming street just a few kilometers from the Taj Mahal. After an absolutely exhausting day of being on the road and some quick sightseeing, we were beyond ready for a relaxing luxury stay. Our first stay in India was at the Park Hotel in Delhi, and that … well… sucked. Like, really crappy. So, we were hoping for a step up, and this hotel delivered! On our recent trip...

Fairfield Inn and Suites Salt Lake City Downtown, Review

Marriott has a ton of properties in the Salt Lake City area, not surprising given the large Mormon population in SLC and the company being founded by a Mormon. We had a one night overnight before our trip out to Park City and the Fairfield Inn Salt Lake City Downtown seemed like a perfect option for a quick overnight stay. Since we have a plethora of Marriott points, we decided to go for the lowest priced one in the area, and at...

Park Hotel Delhi, a Design Collection Hotel. Don’t waste your money.

The Park Hotel Delhi is one of a few Park Hotels all over India, and they are renowned for their service and attention to detail. This stay, however, lacked service, attention to detail, and anything else positive. Read on for all the humorous and sad details of this hotel. We arrived at about 1:55 to the Park Hotel Delhi via our private airport transfer. Even though the room type we booked included free airport transfers, our private...

The one thing that every hotel should have, but doesn’t

It seems like there’s always something missing from hotels everywhere we go. It could be something you forgot from home, or just a simple nice added touch.

The La Quinta San Francisco North Hotel – AVOID!

The La Quinta San Francisco North Hotel – AVOID!

The title of this posts says is all, but the La Quinta San Francisco North is one hotel that you would do yourself a favor by avoiding at all costs. We had a one night layover in SFO before our recent Dublin trip and also had a free hotel night stay worth $100 to use before the end of January. When looking at the hotels, the La Quinta was $109 a night so paying $9 for a hotel room seemed like a no-brainer. We made a big mistake....

St Pancras Renaissance Hotel – Haywood Suite

As is our default whenever we visit London, we booked ourselves a Junior Suite at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Not particularly because this is a default hotel, since this really couldn’t be anything further from a standard hotel. For anyone who doesn’t know which hotel we’re talking about, you may have caught a glimpse of it in the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets movie when Harry and Ron aren’t able to make their...

Hilton Garden Inn Dublin Review

There are a lot of hotels to choose from in Dublin, but the problem is that the majority of them are extremely overpriced. The Hilton Garden Inn is just north of the River Liffey and is perfectly positioned for access to all the sights in town. Getting to the hotel from the airport is a breeze. As soon as we landed, we headed out to the bus stop and looked for the 747 bus (aptly named) which would take us to the center of town for 6...

The World’s Largest Aloft Hotel, Abu Dhabi

In the Emirates, the mantra seems to be “bigger is better” and that rings true with the Aloft Hotel in Abu Dhabi. At over 400 rooms it is the world’s largest. Most Aloft hotels that we’ve been to are 3, 4, or 5 story hotels with just a few rooms on each floor. This hotel has 12 levels including a rooftop bar! We grabbed a taxi from the airport and made our way to the hotel. It was a quick 15 or so minutes and we came across the...

Four Points Sheraton Havana, an Honest Review

As one of the only chain hotels in Havana, the Four Points by Sheraton is in a very unique position to cater to the wants and needs of international travelers looking for a brand that they can trust. Being that the Four Points just came into existence in July, there weren’t any online reviews to fall back on. The hotel was formerly known as the “Hotel Quinta Avenida” (fifth avenue hotel) and became a joint venture between the...

St Pancras Renaissance – The Booking Office Bar & Restaurant

When you think of hotel restaurants you think of sterile and boring, but at the St Pancras Renaissance hotel nothing is, and that includes The Booking Office Bar & Restaurant with its diverse menu and unique setting.
