Confidante Miami Beach: Physically Hurting from No Status

Post Uber delays at the airport, I was ready to arrive at the hotel and maintain my streak of checking in early. I forgot to recall two points: 1. Miami is the worst place for customer service in the world. 2. Explorist status gets you Rodney Dangerfield respect.

My First Airbnb Experience: Old San Juan

Airbnb Old San Juan is part of the Despacito! TPOL Moves to Puerto Rico Trip Report. In April 2018, I visited Puerto Rico. In April 2018, I decided to move to Puerto Rico. In June...

Aura Hotel Melbourne: Flinders, Flinders, Flinders!

The US dollar is too strong to justify paying in points in Australia (see Too Cheap for Points, Too Much for Cash: DoubleTree Darwin). My bank account is too weak to pay $120 a night for Holiday Inns.

Frontier Hotel Darwin: My Case for Hostels

I decided to cut back on my spending and find an economical accommodation in Darwin.

Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel: Name Says It All

Growing up, my favorite hotel was the Dolphin Resort in Disney. It has giant fish statues on its roof. When I learned‎ that there was a hotel shaped like a Crocodile in Kakadu National Park, I had to see it for myself.

Too Cheap for Points, Too Much for Cash: DoubleTree Darwin

Don't you hate when a hotel is too many points to validate booking and not cheap enough to validate paying? The DoubleTree Darwin was 19k points a night or $88.

Hyatt Regency Sydney: Not My Favorite Hyatt

Marriott Skopje: A Lot of Luxury for So Little

The hotel is located right in the heart of the city center, in the midst of a million monuments (see Statues Skopje: Why So Many?) and right across the bridge from the Old Bazaar. If you're in Skopje for one day as I was, it is the ideal place to stay. 

Westin Warsaw: From Bloc to Bright

I would like to see pictures of buildings that were here before the Westin was built. I'm sure they would be starkly different than this towering hotel which is next to JP Morgan's headquarters.
