Bellagio, Las Vegas

Wow, what an interesting hotel experience and as with the majority of Las Vegas, blink, and you will more than likely miss something! Arriving at the hotel by stretch limo (when in Rome!) you’re greeted by the world famous Bellagio fountains, which are even more impressive to witness in person than they are on the...

Hollywood Cafe, San Francisco

We read about this place online and it didn't disappoint. In fact, it was so good that we went there twice for breakfast during our 3-day visit to San Francisco! It's worth noting that it's not the biggest of places so be prepared to stand in line - on both occasions we had to queue... Continue Reading →

E Tutto Qua, San Francisco

What an absolute gem of a restaurant; stunning, authentic Italian food, lively atmosphere and charismatic staff! We met friends here for dinner one Saturday evening and the place was absolutely buzzing, nonetheless we still managed to catch up over a superb meal with one or two Birra Moretti’s too! There’s a great choice of “generously... Continue Reading →

Pier 2620 Hotel, San Francisco

Located in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf neighbourhood, the hotel is in close proximity to some of “The City’s” most iconic tourist attractions; Alcatraz Cruises (Pier 31), Sea lions (Pier 39) and Lombard Street - the “crookedest street in the world” – are all within a 15-20 minute walk, and if you don’t fancy walking there’s...

Jaypee Greens Resort, India

Just when I thought this hotel couldn't get any did! On my second visit to Jaypee Greens Golf & Spa Resort I rather fortuitously ended up in a Deluxe Suite - not that I needed a separate office / living room, two balconies and a bath tub big enough to fit four people! The... Continue Reading →

Fairmont Nanjing, China

I've used this hotel a number of times for work related visits and I'm never disappointed. The Fairmont Nanjing is a spectacular sight to marvel at from the outside - in fact some say the glass fronted skyscraper bears a resemblance to a Chinese lantern - and on the inside it offers smart and stylish...

Sheraton Jiangyin, China

Situated a stone's throw from the main G2 expressway, the Sheraton is perfect for my flying work-related visits to the city. Bedrooms are quiet, spacious and most importantly (after a 3 hour drive) comfortable. You'll find all the usual features too, flat screen TV, decent wi-fi, desk, well stocked mini-bar and a walk in wardrobe.... Continue Reading →

Shanghai Maglev, China

If you're heading over to Shanghai any time soon, you've just got to take a trip on the Maglev. At present it only travels 18.5 miles between Pudong International Airport and Longyang Road Station, but it does it pretty quickly...7 minutes to be precise! Travelling at speeds of up to 431km/h (268mph) it is, without doubt,... Continue Reading →

Wild Wadi, Dubai

Wild Wadi is a great place to visit especially if you're staying in any of the Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts in Dubai as full complimentary access is included in your stay. We were whisked from our Summerhouse to the water park's "VIP" entrance for 10am (opening time) and managed to beat the crowds to all... Continue Reading →
