Hotel Review: Marriott Delray Beach Villas By the Sea

Hotel Review: Marriott Delray Beach Villas By the Sea

Recently, E. and I visited the cute Florida seaside town of Delray Beach and stayed at the Marriott Delray Beach Villas By the Sea. We didn’t know what to expect, but we were blown away by the quality, attention to detail, and charm of the Villas By the Sea. Here’s why we can’t wait to stay again!

Hotel Review: Aria Las Vegas

Hotel Review: Aria Las Vegas

Living in LA, Vegas is only a hop, skip, and a jump away. Like many Angelenos, I find myself in Sin City at least once a year–if not two or three times–since it’s a less-than-an-hour flight, and the hotels, restaurants, bars, and shows are constantly evolving and expanding. Last time I was there, E. and I checked out Michael Jackson One – Cirque du Soleil and stayed at Caesars; this time, we finally caught “O” by Cirque du Soleil and stayed at an old favorite: Aria.

It sounds a bit funny to classify Aria–still a relatively new Vegas hotel–as an “old favorite,” but this was my third time staying there in fewer than two years. Each time, I’ve found more to love about it, and I left this visit firmly convinced that Aria is hands-down one of the only options in Vegas if you’re looking for a true luxury hotel experience.

The Wauwinet Hotel in Nantucket: a Coastal Escape

The Wauwinet Hotel in Nantucket: a Coastal Escape

Nantucket.

Doesn’t the very word conjure up images of money and summer and blazing white sand and the foamy sea?

“I worked myself to the bone in Nantucket last winter. And it’s so flashy and loud! Impossible place to relax,” said nobody, ever.

When E. and I were trying to decide where to spend a few idle days in Massachusetts, Nantucket immediately sprang to mind. I’ve been dying to go there for years, and once we discovered there was an amazing Relais and Chateaux property called The Wauwinet on the island: ’twas done.

Hotel Review: Loews Hollywood Hotel and H2 Lobby Bar

Hotel Review: Loews Hollywood Hotel and H2 Lobby Bar

I recently stayed at Loews Hollywood Hotel to check out the launch of the brand new lobby bar H2, which features cool amenities like an electrical plug for every seat at the bar. On the night we visited, a pianist was playing tunes, the game was on the big screen (Which game? Beats me!), and executive chef Mark Ching provided mouthwatering appetizers like Corned Beef and Potato Cake with Spinach in White Balsamic Sauce, Lobster Pronto Pups with Chipotle Remoulade, Donut Pastrami sliders, and Apple Pie Tacos. Yummy, right?
