We arrived at the hotel at around 7pm. At a lack of a better description, the lobby was like a zoo - it was packed. People checking in, guests were lounging around, about to head out for the evening. I managed to find the SPG...

On a recent trip to Thailand, Arun and I both stayed at the St. Regis Bangkok. Though we stayed at the same time, it appears we had notably different experiences. I was in Asia due to a work trip in Kuala Lumpur, so I sent...

I know I've mentioned it before, but seriously, booking a 6:30 AM flight SEEMS okay in theory, but never is so in practice. And that's the story of how we ended up at an airport hotel. After a one night stay at the W San Francisco,...

As I was planning my 4 day trip to San Francisco, I knew I had 2 nights at the Hotel Nikko San Francisco, I considered spending the rest of my time in the city at the same hotel, or opt to visit another property (or...

Machu Picchu was definitely on the bucket list, and after casually browsing flights to Lima for months, I bit the bullet and decided to book the trip. I initially intended to visit in November 2015, but after realizing that while summer in Lima may run...

I was Japan for a business trip when I had to head to Taiwan for some meetings and found out my office was close to the W Taipei (no complaints here). I landed in Taipei on a cloudy Sunday in April from Tokyo (NRT). The city...
