Review Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka, Japan

Review Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka, Japan

Book the Sheraton Miyako Hotel Osaka here. Osaka is an interesting hotel market with most brand hotels hovering in the $200-$400 range (the newish Marriott usually being the most expensive) and many smaller, cheaper options that usually price in the $100 range.

Review: Asiana Business Class Lounge Seoul

It's not as luxurious as Singapore Airlines for sure. The food is just about edible and the drink selection hasn't improved since my […]

Review: JW Marriott Bangkok Sukhumvit

Book the JW Marriott Bangkok Sukhumvit here. I booked my stay as part of the MegaBonus promotion. While Bangkok hotels are usually a steal the Marriott hotels often price themselves 50% above comparable non-chain hotels.
