United Polaris Lounge San Francisco Review

United Polaris Lounge San Francisco Review

United has been busy behind the scenes for almost two years in renovating its huge United Club that’s just after security at the San Francisco International Terminal.

Radisson Blu Kochi Review

Radisson Blu Kochi Review

The Radisson Blu Kochi is a new building along one of the busy roads leading into downtown Kochi in the neighborhood of Ernakulam. I was expecting a ‘grand’ Radisson Blu, given the luxury aspirations of the brand and the typical attentiveness and grand luxury of Indian hotels. However, the building is VERY understated and more […]

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 […]

Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse San Francisco (SFO) Review

Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse San Francisco (SFO) Review

Virgin Atlantic has long been present with its own lounge at San Francisco International Airport (SFO). It was time for me to try out the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse, to see how the food, lounge location and the staff are shaping up.

Photo Review – San Francisco Fleet Week 2017

Photo Review – San Francisco Fleet Week 2017

(Almost) every year in October something strange happens. Whereas anything patriotic, such as showing a US flag on your doorstep, will get you a Antifa mob commando operation usually – the city embraces the US Navy and Air Force in a three week air and marine show. Why and how this happens is a mystery […]

Crowne Plaza Bandung Review

Crowne Plaza Bandung Review

I selected the Crowne Plaza Bandung for this review for its good location, low rate and reputation for being far above brand standard. The Crowne Plaza is located close to the Bandung downtown area – just two blocks from the Masjid Raya Bandung (the Grand Mosque), the bustling heart of the city on a weekend […]
