When looking for luxury accommodations in Bangkok, Thailand, the buck stops at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Bangkok. I was blessed enough to have the Royal Orchid sponsor my stay for the first stop on my birthday trip to Southeast Asia, and the Royal Orchid left such an impression, it will definitely be my first choice in accommodations when I return to Bangkok. Here is a glimpse with my Royal Orchid Sheraton Bangkok review.
Roister was one of the most anticipated and celebrated Chicago restaurant openings in 2016. Grant Achatz & Company’s new endeavor provides more casual – and affordable – access to experiencing the culinary brilliance of the chefs in the Alinea Group. We sat down at the Chicago hot spot, and this is our Roister review.
Downtown St. Louis is home to numerous colleges, government buildings, the Mississippi riverfront, and, of course, the Gateway Arch. Outside of the riverfront and arch area, parts of downtown become like a ghost town, with streets empty and a sparse number of cars on the roads. But one of the most gorgeous and historical spots in the downtown area is the Magnolia Hotel St. Louis. I was fortunate to get to experience this historic landmark with a media discount on my recent visit to STL. Check out my Magnolia Hotel St. Louis review.
La Fonda on the Plaza is a hotel that I’m really fond-a. Okay, I just couldn’t resist throwing in that corny line. But the sentiment holds true. The famed La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe was an absolute dream come true, with perfect location, a lovely room, and New Mexico charm. I had the opportunity to get a special media rate to experience La Fonda, and I could not have been more thrilled with my choice of hotels in Santa Fe. Keep reading for the full scoop in this La Fonda Santa Fe hotel review, and how they made my birthday special.
As each year comes to a close, reflecting on all of the positive moments that I’ve experienced throughout it, is a refreshing way to end a year and bring in a new one. I’d like to do just that in regards to my 2016 travels, so here is my 2016 travel recap.
Having a co-owner who graduated first in his class at the Culinary Institute of America, worked at the famous Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, and has been the executive chef at places as prestigious as the United Nations in New York, it has every right to put on airs as some restaurants of even lesser credentials do. Yet Corner Kitchen Asheville emanates warmth and aromatic charm the instant you walk up the porch and through its threshold.
From a foodie perspective, New Mexico comes in first with its biggest foodie export: delicious New Mexico green chiles. And while we had plenty of green chiles while in Santa Fe (more on that coming soon), that isn’t the only delightful cuisine that Santa Fe boasts. We decided to learn more about the influence Spanish cuisine on the area in the Authentic Spanish Tapas cooking demonstration at the Santa Fe School of Cooking. And, of course, enjoy the feast that ensued.
