Hotel Reviews

Posted by Caleb | June 1, 2016 Quite possibly the most interesting part of our trip is the rags to riches, then back down to rags accommodation that we consistently stay at.  One night I am waiting in the hotel check-in line behind a Wall Street millionaire spattering on his […]

By Beach Bungalow vs Conrad Koh Samui. Same-Same, but ...

Posted by Beth | May 1, 2016 As you know by now if you’ve been following our blog even in the slightest, our nine-month round-the-world trip would not be possible if it weren’t for the millions of hotel points we redeemed for hundreds of free nights. Thanks to generous sign up […]

Waldorf Astoria New York City Review

Park Hyatt New York: Is it worth it?
