Sheraton Dallas: The Biggest Hotel in North America?

Have you ever turned down a suite upgrade? I did this time because it was a suite with two beds. Yes the room was bigger but I want that king.

Element NYC: Great Service, Bad Experience

I've stayed at too many SPG properties to count in New York. This was my first time staying at the Element brand. It's supposed to be a Westin off shoot much like Aloft is a W off shoot.

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.
