The Chilaquiles was the standout of the meal, with every bite managing to strike the careful balance between flavorful and spicy.
The room itself was great, but what made it even more spectacular were the views. Almost two full walls of the Jr Suite had floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, which led out to a huge wrap around balcony.
Have you ever had one of those nights where you just can’t get warm enough? I used the blanket on the bed, the spare blanket in the closet, and I still wasn’t warm enough. I resorted to using the bedspread and the bedspread from the spare bed. Still, it wasn’t enough.
To my surprise, there was no phone on the small glass bedside table to the left of the bed. There wasn’t anything on the table at all.
The pool was clean and free of debris, so someone obviously took pride in making sure it was in tip-top shape for guests.

There was also a serene view out over the bay, and the window offered a great vantage point for watching the incoming flights land.
Nudging closer, we were just in time for the show! One performer gave the drums a good workout while dancing around. I thought he was wearing socks but upon further inspection realized that they were shoes designed to look as if he only had two toes.
The property used to be a boutique hotel called the Le Rivage, which was built in 2008 to the tune of $28 million. About 3 years ago Starwood took over the hotel and renovated it to turn it into a Westin.
I’m a breakfast all-day sort of person. Add that together with my frequent travel and an…
Full of light-catching chandeliers and ample seating the lounge oozed with Southern charm. “Would you like a mimosa, Miss?” asked a lounge attendant brightly in a slight drawl.
She didn’t have an answer but kept repeating that we were in a Club level King room and that the Suites were unavailable. I asked if they were all occupied and she said no, but wasn’t able to provide a satisfactory answer as to why I couldn’t stay in one unless paying for that specific room type.
I stared out the tinted window as caramel colored dunes were replaced by tall buildings, and it wasn’t long before the car slowed as it turned to pull up the long driveway to the Park Hyatt Dubai.
After Kyoto I couldn’t resist sneaking in a night at the famed Park Hyatt Tokyo before heading to Hiroshima. I’ve stayed there many times before as I figure many readers have, but it is a favorite of mine. The outstanding staff, suite and breakfast all blend together for a fantastic stay. To me it is one of the top aspirational chain properties in the world that is absolutely worth the stay, if even for one visit or night.
After a quick nap that turned into a longer slumber, I called down to order some Tempura and Udon noodles for dinner. There was no separate button on the phone for room service, so I just called the operator who transferred me. Unfortunately, the Ritz-Carlton Kyoto’s highly-rated Mizun restaurant had closed at 9:30pm and it was 9:45. Drat, I had just missed it.
I was visiting friends from the Bonusfeber community and the Renaissance MalmÃ¶ was the perfect location…
Sliding under the covers I got ready to turn out the light, but my husband felt that something wasn’t right with the sheet at the end of the bed. The sheets were luxuriously soft but maybe the sheet was just bunched up, and we pulled down the cover to take a look.
Most Hilton Garden Inn’s aren’t my first choice when it comes to hotels. The Hilton Garden…
We were excited to see our room, and it was finally time! Norwegian Jade’s Penthouse Suite 10166 is also known as a Romance Suite, since it used to be sold as a room for 2, with a maximum of 3 guests instead of 4. It is located on Deck 10, in the very back of the ship (aft). This turned out to be a fantastic location and I’m now an absolute fan of these staterooms. True, pretty much all of the restaurants and activities were forward, but that just meant a bit more exercise which balanced out with all the extra desserts and goodies onboard.
