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: 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: 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 ...

Hotel Review: Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh

  Pittsburgh is a great city to visit if you don’t mind putting up with the traffic headaches that accompany it. Downtown is usually easy to navigate though, so our first of two nights was spent at the Westin Convention Center. Our second night was planned in advance though, as we wanted to make sure we had a chance to ...

Hotel Review: Westin Convention Center Pittsburgh

  Downtown hotels can be both a blessing and a curse. That is to say, they have their advantages and disadvantages. You will be close to all the action but most likely have to pay for parking. You will have a better view but fight traffic to arrive or depart. Pittsburgh is a beautiful city but outside of the immediate ...

Hotel Review: Hotel Monaco Baltimore

  This is one of the most magnificent historical building renovations I have ever seen. To be fair, I haven’t seen but a handful, but you can tell this is something special when you walk in. But hold on, let me back up a little and tell you where we are. Fresh off two nights in Washington DC, we were ...

Review: National Geographic Museum

  Since we travel almost 365 days a year, and Sarah is homeschooled as a direct result of those travels, we try to make it a priority to find unique educational opportunities for her whenever we can. Our goal is to let her experience the world in her own way and learn without actually knowing she is learning. She seems to ...

Hotel Review: Hotel Rouge, a Kimpton Hotel

  Our second night during this trip to Washington DC was spent at the Hotel Rouge, one of ten different Kimpton Hotels in the area. Last night we had stayed at the Hotel Helix and been extremely disappointed so we hoped to turn that around tonight. Most of these properties are concentrated around the downtown area and the Hotel Rouge ...

Hotel Review: Hotel Helix, a Kimpton Hotel

Update: We spoke with Kenneth Clark, Manager of the Hotel Helix, and he expressed deep regret for our experiences during our recent stay. He informed us that staff training sessions have been scheduled and they will do their best to make sure this never happens again. He also detailed the expected renovations which include a complete shutdown on October 16th, 2015 with ...

Hotel Review: Aloft Asheville Downtown

  Location is the name of the game at the Aloft Asheville Downtown as this property is within walking distance of almost anything you might need during a stay in the city. Restaurants, breweries, even an outdoor gear retailer that is actually attached to the hotel. This was our first stay at an Aloft property in quite some time but ...
