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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Holiday Inn Zhengzhou Review

Holiday Inn Zhengzhou Review

The Holiday inn Zhengzhou shares a compound with the Crowne Plaza Zhengzhou (it also shares the front desk), the Holiday Inn Express and the Sofitel. All the buildings seem to have seen better times and are easily 30+ years old. They clearly went up before the current hotel boom in China. This ‘mini hotel city’ […]

Hyatt Regency Jinan Review

Hyatt Regency Jinan Review

The Hyatt Regency is one of many high rises in Jinan – the capital of the Shandong province. I arrived rather late at night and happy to see that the front desk spoke minimal English (a rarity in Central China).   Check-in was quick and with no-nonsense – I was hoping to order food and […]

My Review of the Hilton Petaling Jaya Kuala Lumpur

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.

Radisson Medan, Indonesia Review

Radisson Medan, Indonesia Review

The Radisson Medan is one of the cheapest Radisson’s on the planet. With some luck you can find rates under $40 right on their website and even less when you book through an OTA. Medan isn’t exactly tourist hotspot and clearly a backwater. The JW Marriott Medan even sells rooms for under $60 most of […]

InterContinental Cali Review

InterContinental Cali Review

The InterContinental Cali is a major landmark in Cali and has given rise to an upscale neighborhood right next to it. The hotel is huge and occupies a large city block in prime real estate next to the Cali River. Unbeknownst to me at the time, there is a free airport shuttle that runs the […]

Hyatt Regency Danang Review

Hyatt Regency Danang Review

The Hyatt Regency Danang is located along the coastline between Da Nang and Hoi An. It’s just about 15-20 minutes from the airport. The property is huge with a seemingly endless set of towers, villas, and buildings (some called residences). I had used 6,000 Hyatt Points and $100 for two nights at the property (as World […]

Le Méridien Kochi Hotel Review

Le Méridien Kochi Hotel Review

Le Méridien Kochi is located south of the city near the main highway on a huge piece of land, including its own lake. There is no way to avoid the ‘resort fee’ once you get through the entry gates. Check-in was done quickly at this late hour (after midnight) and a passport copy was all I […]

AVANI Atrium Bangkok Hotel Review

AVANI Atrium Bangkok Hotel Review

The AVANI Atrium hotel is located in the Vadhana neighborhood in Bangkok. Vadhana spans parts of Sukhumvit and Thonglor. If this sounds confusing, the hotel is also next to a major freeway and hemmed in by low-rises and the water canal. While on a map, the hotel seems reasonably close to most of the attractions near […]

Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur Review

Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur Review

I selected the Holiday Inn Bandung Pasteur for this review for its location, price and because it is a new hotel in the city. The hotel is located right behind Bandung Airport. Alas, the terminal is on the other side and while it’s still a little more than a mile away, traffic makes it a […]

Four Points By Sheraton Melbourne Docklands Review

Four Points By Sheraton Melbourne Docklands Review

The Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne hotel that I selected for this review is located in the Docklands neighborhood. It’s a recent high-rise building that aligns well with this newly-built up area that serves as a way to add more housing to the expensive city. When I booked, rates were just under AUD$100 but showed […]

Intercontinental Bali Resort Review

Intercontinental Bali Resort Review

The Intercontinental Bali Resort (Review) is located just south of the Bali/ Denpasar airport in Jimbaran. It sits on a huge property that opens into a wide sandy bay. This stretch of beach is one of Bali’s best with a gentle surf. I arrived for my stay just at 1.30 PM and was looking forward […]
