Hotel Connoisseur – Luxury Choices
September 28th, 2011

I’m a hotel connoisseur, if there is such a thing. navy blue and red fjallraven kanken backpack mini I love hotels. One of my favorite aspects of traveling is finding a great place to stay. coque samsung galaxy note5 coque iphone se naruto supreme frost green fjallraven kanken backpack big I thoroughly enjoy exploring the property – however large or small it may be, dropping down on the bed to feel how cushiony the mattress is, playing with fancy bathroom accessories (whirlpool tubs, fancy shower heads), looking through the room service menu. legendary birds pokemon custodia iphone x tyui5922 I feel very at home in a good hotel. Naturally, when I am planning travel for myself or others, choosing accommodations is key. coque iphone 6 6s I’m an upscale hotel person. coque samsung galaxy grand plus stitch ohana cover custodia case iphone 11 T0062 wallpaper dedsec 75hE5 3.5 stars is about the lowest I go and many of my clients are the same way. nike air force 1 I sell luxury travel after all. coque iphone 11 12 mini pro max N7799 coque One Piece Luffy So here, from around the world, are some of my top picks among those I’ve stayed in, along their pros and cons. cover iphone 5 fallout 639ekj These aren’t the only good hotels I’ve found by any means, just some of my favorites. I’m dividing my hotel suggestions up into two categories – this blog will focus on the larger hotels with parent companies. The next will focus on more stand-alone properties. fjallraven kanken classic backpack purple Ambassador Hotel, Vienna Pros: Ideal location, on a pedestrian street with shops, restaurants and beer gardens literally as you step out of your hotel. Beautiful hotel in every possible respect; spacious rooms including some two room suites which do not cost any extra; attentive service and though I was entirely not upscale enough to stay there, I didn’t feel looked down upon. prison break custodia iphone mini pro max 12 ret10663 Custodia Cover iphone 11 pro max Adventure Time Madness L1149 Case Above all, the location is key. Cons: Vienna is an expensive city. coque s7 stitch couleur You pay for quality. brick fjallraven kanken backpack mini This isn’t really a con, just an acknowledgement.   Castille Hotel, Paris Pros: Around the corner from the Champs Elysees, but on a quieter street so it’s the best of both words location wise; helpful, friendly, attentive service; for Europe, decent sized rooms. The hotel seems to have a lot of good sales (discounts, free room nights, packages, etc) – take advantage of these! Cons: The restaurant is quite expensive, especially for dinner, and you aren’t stuffed when you leave. I’d suggest dining elsewhere for dinner. beauty and beast custodia iphone x tyui14317 Their breakfast buffet is quite tasty and expansive though also pricey. Radisson SAS, Edinburgh (formerly Crown Plaza) Pros: Located directly on the Royal Mile, close to basically everything: shops, restaurants, bars, within walking distance of Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. cover custodia case iphone 11 G6279 breath of the wild wallpaper 9kK8 Good service and good-sized rooms for Europe. Custodia Cover iphone 11 pro max bugs bunny galaxy Z3636 Case Cons: Location equals higher price tag, but worth it in my opinion. Also, in the summer, make sure your room as air conditioning if the weather requires it. La Blanc Palace, Cancun Pros: adult-only, all-inclusive, impeccable service, modern design, delicious food for an all-inclusive, swim up bars, jacuzzi/hot tub in each room. Cons: Obviously this type of place comes with a high price tag. That’s basically the only “con” I found. coque iphone 11 remise nike cover iphone 11 sunset mountain Intercontinental, Tahiti (Papeete) Pros: very personalized service: they arranged a half-room-rate so that we could stay in our room until our 10 PM flight out which meant basically that we were depriving them of a guest in that room for the following night. ox red and royal blue fjallraven kanken backpack classic Plentiful grounds with amazing sunset views, spacious rooms with a tropical feel (it’s Tahiti). Cons: Other than price, I couldn’t find any. It is more appealing on the inside than the outside (unless it’s been redone since I was there). When you arrive at night, it might not look as impressive as it actually is. nike officiel coque iphone 12 mini stitch       Park Hyatt, Mendoza, Argentina Pros: Luxury from every angle, and it looks the part. Modern, well-sized rooms, outdoor dining terrace, proximity to wine region (15 minutes to some wineries) are all big pluses. Cons: While not necessarily a con, it definitely feels like a luxury hotel – meaning that if you like to stay high end but don’t want to feel like it’s an exclusive hotel, you might feel a bit out of place here. If you don’t mind walking around in jeans when you feel like you should be dressed up, you’ll be fine. custodia subacquea per iphone 7 322ruo No one made us feel out of place at all, nor did they talk down to us. We just felt a little under-dressed and under-salaried.   *Note: not all of the pictures here are of the hotel or hotel grounds. Many are from the surrounding areas, to highlight the location. nike soldes Scroll over each photo to see the description.

    I have heard that the Bloody Mary’s there are very good. I think that “con” depends on what people are looking to do. I would personally agree with you that there is pretty much just shopping food, and bars, though you do need a slight walk to get to it and those activities are rather touristy and not for everyone. However, one good thing about the La Blanc is that you can use the services of all the other Palace Resorts in the area, so for instance at the Moon Palace which is in the same general area, they have a highly rated golf course. The hotel does have tours to the Mayan ruins and such, though those do of course cost extra.

  2. One con for the La Blanc is that if you if you walk outside of the hotel there is almost nothing else to see/do. The Bloody Mary’s at the pool, however, were excellent.
