Sofitel Europe – Brussels

I’m sharing a few snaps of this very standard hotel. The Hermes products were nice. The restaurant was phenomenal, but we will address this separately. The hotel itself was very average- not five star as noted. The service was abysmal. Housekeeping never came even though they offer a twice daily service. After asking for items…

South Congress Hotel- Austin

<Said in the same tone as “….Canonballllll!!!!”> Mileage Runnnnnnnnnn! After all of my pinging back and forth to Europe the last six months, I still needed another 1,700 miles to hit Executive Platinum status.

Bar Boulud London

Bar Boulud at the Madarin Oriental in London has been on my ‘to-do’ list for nearly two years now and I finally had the chance for a visit recently. We were seated at a lovely, cozy corner booth for a late lunch, despite my making a reservation for the location in NYC. Whoops! Not to…
