In the golden era of airline travel, a good cocktail was an integral part of the flight experience. Today, TPG Contributor Robbie Harrell reviews a product that brings back those bygone days while adding a touch of class that’s often sorely lacking in the industry.

Hotel Review: Prince de Galles Hotel – Macassar Suite

On my most recent trip to Paris, I had the pleasure of staying in the Prince de Galles Hotel, a category 7 Starwood Luxury Collection property on Avenue George V, off the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in the 8th arrondissement. It’s directly next to the Four Seasons (in fact, they’re attached) and the location feels quite central…

Flight Review: OpenSkies BizBed Newark- Paris Orly

One of my goals this year was to use my British Airways Travel Together Ticket and I was determined not to let it expire, like it had in the past. I’ve had the British Airways Visa Signature card for over three years now, and I’ve earned the ticket previously by spending $30,000 on the card in a calendar year. The…

Hotel Review: The St. Regis Deer Valley

Even though I was surrounded by the glitterati of the Sundance Film Festival during my stay at the St. Regis Deer Valley in Park City, Utah, the real star was the mountain scenery around the property.

Is FoundersCard Worth It?

As 2015 kicks into gear along with the quest for elite qualification, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about membership-only cards that can help you gain fast-track elite status, airfare and hotel discounts, and other benefits. Today, TPG Contributor (and COO) Leigh Rowan reviews one of the more prominent of these cards, FoundersCard. TPG first reviewed FoundersCard in 2011 and then again…

Flight Review: American Airlines A321 First Class JFK-SFO

Back in January of 2014, American Airlines launched their new A321T plane on flights between LAX-JFK, and between SFO-JFK in March of 2014. By June 2014, all five daily flights between the JFK-SFO cities in either direction have taken place on the new aircraft. Flying in first class aboard this plane is great because the 10 seats are…

Comfort Inn Bolivar Rome: Family Travel in the City Center

On a recent trip to Italy, TPG Contributor Jason Steele and his family spent three nights at the Comfort Inn Bolivar in Central Rome. Here’s what they found. Our family loves to visit Italy, but it can be very difficult to find family friendly accommodations there. Italian law requires hotels to collect passport information from all guests,…

Review: LOT Business Class Warsaw-JFK on 787 Dreamliner

On the return flight of his recent trip to Europe, TPG Contributor Jason Steele had the chance to try out LOT’s Business Class from Warsaw to New York (JFK). Here’s his experience on this Polish carrier. Sure, the 787 Dreamliner has been in service (off and on) for nearly three years, but it’s still a treat for me to…
