Hilton Cartagena Review

Hilton Cartagena Review

This was my second stay at the Hilton Cartagena – the last time I was here was in July 2014 (my review of the Hilton Cartagena from 2014). The hotel is clearly past its prime – it’s an old building but maintenance keeps adding ab layer of paint. It still sits pretty at the end […]

My Favorite Things to do in Kuala Lumpur (Updated in 2018)

Things to do in Kuala Lumpur – Understand Kuala Lumpur is a contemporary metropolis that is following the path Singapore has cut out for itself.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur Review

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur Review

We already knew the DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur is clearly one (or the) best hotel deal in Kuala Lumpur (and maybe in Asia) if you have a modest amount of hotel points.
