So we'd booked our tickets to Cartagena, but where would we stay? Staying in a hotel in the walled city will cost you notably more, but that's where all the sights are. Bocagrande is a little outside of that, but notably cheaper, and taxis are...

When I started doing my research for hotels in Brussels, I had initially booked Brian and I to stay at the Aloft Brussels Schuman property, which is located in the Leopold Quarter area of the city, close to the Parc du Cinquantenaire - a bit of...

DC is a quick one hour plane ride from New York City, so when Brian had to head over for work, I decided to tag along for a weekend. After scouring through my SPG options in the DC area (there is certainly no shortage), but...

When I started planning this trip, I wasn't sure if I wanted to make a stop in Yangon, but at the recommendation of a friend, I added it on to the itinerary. I was choosing between the Belmond Governor's Residence and the Strand, but found...

I was in Milan for work for a quick week, and just my luck, a Westin was located right across the street from my office! I usually never find a decent hotel so close to work, so I really lucked out here....

I was in town to see family who lived outside of Chicago for an event on Saturday. Given that the gathering was taking place outside of the city, staying at an airport hotel (given the location's proximity to O'Hare) seemed to be the most logical...
