Sheraton Santiago: Come for the Convenience, Stay for the Donuts

The Luxury Collection continues to impress. This time with my stay at the Palacio del Inka in Cusco. For 5000 points and $75, I was treated to an upscale hotel right in the heart of the city.

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.
