Hotel Review: Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City

  Back where it all began. Just a random thought that passed through my head as I drove into downtown Salt Lake City, prepared for my second stay at the Hotel Monaco. You see, just over a year and half ago, the Hotel Monaco would serve as my introduction to the Kimpton brand. I had never stayed at one prior ...

Hotel Review: Hotel Palomar San Diego

  There is a first time for everything they say, and this was my first time to downtown San Diego. I had been to La Jolla before, a very short drive north, but I had never stepped foot into the downtown area. I have no good reason why, other than I spend the bulk of my time on the east ...

Hotel Review: Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel

  I had never heard of the self-proclaimed Surf City USA before I made reservations to stay a few nights on our way to San Diego. For the last few weeks our family had been trying to decide where to spend a week in Southern California. We bounced back and forth between Los Angeles, Anaheim and others before finalizing everything. ...

Hotel Review: Hotel Lumen Dallas

  When I was a child, my favorite professional football team was the Dallas Cowboys. I can’t even begin to tell you where this came from, since I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio nearly 1,200 miles away. I loved cheering for Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin as they won multiple Super Bowls in the 1990’s. My parents even ...

Hotel Review: Aloft Tulsa Downtown

  I have driven through Tulsa numerous times but have never stayed the night. It’s not because I am avoiding the city, I have just always been on my way somewhere else and it didn’t make sense to overnight there. When you are traveling from Springfield, Missouri to Dallas, Texas though, you don’t have many options besides Tulsa. Unless of ...

Hotel Review: Candlewood Suites Springfield

  My sister used to live in Springfield, Missouri but other than that extremely personal fact that has no relevance to you, I know next to nothing about this city. Sure, I have been here a couple times to visit her and we have a client in the area, but we haven’t done much sightseeing. Bass Pro Shops is headquartered ...

Hotel Review: Westin St. Louis

  When you travel for business nearly 365 days a year, it is absolutely imperative that you build in some downtime for the family. Almost everyone we share our story with has been fascinated by the idea of seeing so many new places but they fail to realize how much hard work it really is. For me, there are three ...

Hotel Review: Staybridge Suites Indianapolis Carmel

  If you are not a member of a hotel loyalty program, and you stay at hotels, you are missing out. Not just on the small things like saving your preferences and being notified of special deals, but big things like free room upgrades and free nights. You don’t need to join every single program out there, just start with ...

Hotel Review: Sheraton Cleveland Airport

  Airport hotels had not been kind to me in the past. From my experience, they just seem to wear out faster then hotels in other locations. That doesn’t mean there aren’t excellent airport hotels, just that it requires extra attention from management when it comes to making renovations, improvements or regular maintenance. Since we drive almost everywhere, we haven’t ...

Hotel Review: Westin Cleveland Downtown

  If there was one major city that you could legitimately call my hometown, Cleveland would probably be it. Although I was born and raised about a half hour away in Akron, this is the city I have always claimed as my own. Not because I have a false sense of ownership but simply because I identified with the people ...
