Hotel Ambassador Nyon

Just to the north of Geneva is the tiny town of Nyon and one of the headquarters of my company. While on my last trip, I was treated to the privaledge of staying four nights at the new Hotel Ambassador. The hotel is perfectly located in the middle of the town, on the top of…

El Cosmico- Part 1: Imperial Mansion

The first night in Marfa was a dream come true – a glorious night at El Cosmico, part of the Bunkhouse Group. I’d been wanting to stay here literally as long as I’d heard about it. The real dream was to sleep in a teepee – cool air, wood burning fire, what could possible be…

Grand Hyatt San Antonio

“Her name is Rio and she dances on the saaaannndddd…” Why was this song in my head the whole week I spent in San Antonio? The river here is the San Antonio River, not the Rio Grande. (shrugging lady emoji). Great song. I rolled into West Texas to plan a conference for later this year…

Andaz London

A few weeks ago, mum and I commenced the London portion of our European tour with a stay at the Andaz London- Liverpool Street. We left Paris a day early feeling uncomfortable by about everything going on in that city at the moment. I called Andaz to add a night to the room and they…

Nira Caledonia

The summer in Scotland brings loads of tourists and super jacked up hotel room rates. AKA I couldn’t expense much more than some dull corporate chain, so I reached out to a travel agent to see what his recommendation would be. Try the Nira Caledonia, he said. The rooms would be small, but in budget,…

Hotel Danmark

Stockholm absolutely blew my mind- full guide coming soon- and I was hoping for the same in the second part of my solo travel adventure. After a delayed flight, I arrived to the Hotel Danmark on Friday evening. This was my steal of the trip- a four star hotel for three nights including breakfast for…

Thompson Chicago

Ah the Windy City, my home a decade or so ago. The food scene is so much better now, but other than that, it feels like not much has changed. My lovely bff lives in town so it quite literally is home. Well, her home is my home, right? After a few days crashing at…

Thompson Toronto

After a few days in Mexico, I stopped home, swapped suitcases and headed to Toronto for two (very long) weeks. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to see my bed before. Or cook. Or nap. Or read. Or anything at my house (except unpack). I spent a chunk of my time at the…

Unico 20 87

Recently, I returned from a long weekend at the beautiful, new-ish, all-inclusive resort, Unico 20 87.  I must admit, I wasn’t jazzed about the idea of going to Mexico. While I LOVE Mexico, there have just been so many murders and whatnot, I thought the Caribbean seemed like the more logical option. Also, I’m never…

Posh Edinburgh

What’s there to do in Edinburgh when you’re stuck in the city, no public transport, shops open, many open restaurants, and you are banned from the office? Walk around the city, take photos of the snow and warm up with drink breaks at posh establishments, because hotels never close. First up, The Balmoral hotel. Rates…

Sheraton Grand Edinburgh

The last stay on my last-minute European adventure was the Sheraton Grand Edinburgh. While, I’m not usually one for big, chain properties, this hotel was awesome. The staff was so friendly and helpful in answering questions, ordering cars, storing packages, and recommending restos. Apparently, there was also a lovely spa with what looks to be…

Hotel Review: Royal Lancaster London

After my time at The Franklin, I was due to spend a couple days in Dublin. In favor of sleep, not packing up for a quick international flight, and avoiding snowy flight delays, I opted to stay in London. I asked The Franklin about rates for the few extra days and they weren’t quick to…
