Video Hotel Review: The St. Regis New York & SPG Upgrade Shenanigans

October 23, 2012

Last week while I was in New York City I decided to stay at the St. Regis for a night to see if the historic hotel that launched an entire brand lived up to the hype. Known for its elegance and refined atmosphere, the St. Regis originally opened on September 4, 1904. Now there are 31 […]

Hotel Review: Le Meridien Beach Plaza Monaco

October 4, 2012

As I reported yesterday, I spent the first four days of my South of France holiday at the Four Seasons Terre Blanche in Provence. I had never been outside Paris before, though, and I had one more day to kill before my flight back to Miami, so I decided to spend my last night in […]

Hotel Review: Four Points by Sheraton Chelsea

September 28, 2012

Recently I’ve had several last-minute trips to New York City, which on one hand is great because I absolutely love New York, especially in September, but lately hotel rates have been through the roof. With events like Fashion Week and the UN General assembly, even the lowest level of hotels can fetch $500+ a night […]

Hotel Review: Element Times Square

September 17, 2012

Last week I had to book a last-minute trip to New York City, which was right in the middle Fashion Week so I knew hotels were going to be expensive…if available at all. The cheapest SPG option I could find was the Element Times Square which was a whopping $507 per night with all taxes […]

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu Copenhagen

August 18, 2012

The Arne Jacobsen-designed building of the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel is a Copenhagen landmark. After a less-than-stellar stay at the Radisson Blu Charles de Gaulle outside Paris in order to get my 50,000 Club Carlson Gold Points from the Big Night Giveaway, I wasn’t exactly looking forward to another Radisson Blu stay anytime soon, but […]

Hotel Review: W Austin Cool Corner Suite

June 11, 2012

When I traveled to Austin a couple weeks ago, I decided to stay in the W Austin since I’d heard good things about it, and had already experienced some of the city’s other upscale properties like the Driskill and the Four Seasons. I also wanted to get elite stay credit as I work my way […]

Hotel Review: The Westin Dublin

March 1, 2012

For our jaunt to Dublin last weekend, my family and I decided to stay at the Westin Dublin. We scored a pretty good room rate of 165 euros (US$220), which included breakfast, so we went ahead and pulled the trigger – especially since our 3 night stay would qualify for Starwood’s current triple points promotion.

Hotel Review: St. Regis Princeville on Kauai

February 21, 2012

As I mentioned yesterday in my review of the Kauai Grand Hyatt, I changed my trip plans once I got there and decided to spend the third and fourth nights of my stay on the island at the St. Regis Princeville instead. I enjoyed the Grand Hyatt, but it was purely a points decision since […]
