Grand Wailea Maui, A Waldorf Astoria Resort Review

Grand Wailea Maui, A Waldorf Astoria Resort Review

The Grand Wailea Maui is the ‘Grande Dame’ of Wailea resorts that control the area south of Kihei on the island of Maui. While the area beaches are all publicly accessible by the way of the beautiful public beach walk – there is a never-ending line of resorts that open into the beautiful waters of […]

InterContinental Malta Review – or how many rooftop pools does one need?

InterContinental Malta Review – or how many rooftop pools does one need?

InterContinental Malta is located in St. Julian’s bay – the ‘party district’ of Malta. As with many buildings in Malta, the InterContinental has mushroomed from a modest footprint to a whole city block that seems to be sprawling all over the place. In fact, the 10th-floor pool got an addition on the 19th floor to provide […]

Hilton Addis Abeba Review – can you be any more rude Hilton front desk?

Hilton Addis Abeba Review – can you be any more rude Hilton front desk?

The Hilton Addis Abeba is the granddaddy of US-inspired hoteliers in Addis. It’s located on a steep hill and it is in close neighborhood to the Radisson Addis Abeba (Review), Intercontinental Addis Abeba (that one is fake and not part of IHG) and also rather close to the Hyatt Regency Addis Abeba (Review).   Check-in […]

Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre Review – it’s not hot in your room – it’s just you sir!

Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre Review – it’s not hot in your room – it’s just you sir!

The Holiday Inn Prague Congress Centre is located about 3 miles away from the Prague Old Town Center. I consider this an advantage since it gets you out of the crowds and just 500 feet behind the building is Vyšehrad – likely my favorite place in Prague. Check-in was friendly but pretty lackadaisical. We requested […]

Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik Review

Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik Review

The Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik is located just outside the gates of the Old Town of Dubrovnik. It’s prime real estate – you are just steps away from the ‘Black Water Bay’ filming location of ‘Game of Thrones’. The building itself is surprisingly large given the real estate prices in and around the World Heritage site […]

Holiday Inn Belgrade Review

Holiday Inn Belgrade Review

The Holiday Inn Belgrade is located in ‘Novi Belgrade’ a part of town with a rather mixed history but lot’s of new developments (and buildings).  The local ‘Uber-like’ service gets you to town for under $4 or it is a 45 minute walk. The hotel looks rather new from the outside but is pretty old […]

Holiday Inn Doha (Business Park) Review

Holiday Inn Doha (Business Park) Review

The Holiday Inn Doha was part of the recent Pointbreaks release with redemption rates as low as 5,000 points but also posts rates under $70 for most Middle East summer dates. The hotel is in between the downtown area and the airport and it is just $7 for a quick Uber ride from the airport. […]

Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach Review

Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach Review

The Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach is nestled between several hotel developments right at Double Six Beach, Seminyak. While the surf at this beach can be dangerous with highly varying water levels the area is my favorite in Bali. There are great eateries and restaurants as well as good coffee in the immediate neighborhood. We […]

Hampton by Hilton Nanning Review

Hampton by Hilton Nanning Review

The Hampton by Hilton Nanning is outside the Nanning city center (which is roughly near the Mixc Mall) and a new development that huddles a tangential artery towards the city. Google Maps DOES not have the right location but most Chinese apps have. The front desk did not speak a word of English and skipped […]

Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown Review

Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown Review

The Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown is located on the western edge of L.A. Downtown just a two blocks from the JW Marriott. The building is currently the tallest in Los Angeles and can easily be spotted from most parts of the city (unless there is bad smog). The reception is at the 70 floor, the […]

Hong Kong Airlines Business Class Lounge Review

Hong Kong Airlines Business Class Lounge Review

Hong Kong Airlines runs two lounges one smallish at Gate 23 (Club Bauhinia) and a rather big lounge at the satellite terminal at Hong Kong Airport. The 200+ numbered gates are a train ride away from the rest of the airport (and the Hong Kong Airport train). I found it a surprisingly long set of […]

Kuala Lumpur is one of my favorite cities and the Doubletree Kuala Lumpur is one of my favorite hotels anywhere. However there are is a new breed of Hilton properties in town. The two brand new Hilton Garden Inns in Kuala Lumpur post rates at just $29 but are stricken by incredible road noise and […]
