Le Meridien Marrakech: Dated Digs in Marrakech

My trip to Morocco started off rocky. After one night I made the executive decision to leave for Madrid. The hotel had no WiFi and the AC didn't work.

Aloft Manhattan Downtown: Happy Hours

With the DOW hitting record highs day after day, The Street is in need of a place to celebrate. If you're a banker or just a lawyer in town on business, consider staying at the Aloft Manhattan Downtown where happy hour lasts late into the night. 

SLS Las Vegas: Not LA Cool

When I think of the SLS brand, I think of the hip one in Los Angeles. That is not the case for the one in Vegas. This hotel is lodging for those coming for conventions....

Aloft Denver Airport: The Cure For Exhaustion

The only SPG hotel that is actually at Denver Airport is the Westin. Most ‘airport hotels’ are a fifteen minute drive away. The Aloft is one of those hotels. After an interminable wait at the airport, I arrived at the Aloft dead tired.

Four Points Long Island City: Best Place to Stay NYC

Long Island City baby! I've lived all over NY and surrounding areas. First, I was in Brooklyn, specifically Greenpoint. That was very boring. Then I was in Hoboken. That's in New Jersey.

Four Points Catania, Sicily: The Porn Suite

The hotel is far from the city center. After a day of visiting the center where I ate way too much and was overwhelmed by the crowds, I'd say that's a good thing. The hotel does offer a shuttle that has to be reserved which goes to and fro.

The Westin Guadalajara: The Other Option

Westins feel like home. They're comfortable and familiar. The Westin Guadalajara had the chic appeal of a W, without the IKEA furniture and unremarkable service.

Sheraton Brooklyn: My Messes

NY is exhausting. I'm not a full-time resident of New York so I'm always looking for deals when I come for short-term work trips. ‎Often, the Four Points fits the bill because there's usually a hotel available for a convenient price.

Four Points Times Square: Another Four Points in Manhattan

The days of St. Regis New York luxury are over. Now, when I need a hotel in New York, I look for the cheapest option at the best location. The Four Points brand by SPG is usually an affordable option.

Four Points Sanya: Come for the View, Then Leave

Sanya hotels are too expensive to spend cash and too cheap to use points. (see my post Struggling to Find Where to Stay in Sanya) My first hotel in Sanya was the Four Point Sheraton. It is a decent value at $80 a night but certainly not worth 7,000 SPG points.
