Accommodations Reviews

May you live in interesting times” is considered to be an ancient Chinese curse – “interesting” is subject to so many different interpretations, you see. But we always choose to stay in interesting places when we travel. Luxury hotels, historic inns, friendly Bed and Breakfasts, unique boutique hotels tucked away with only a small sign on the door to identify them, all inclusive resorts in exotic locations – all of these and more attract us. If you are interested in partnering with us to visit and review your location in a variety of venues, just contact us at janross53@gmail.comBannerThis is a list of all our accommodations reviews; for lists of specific categories, choose a link below:

We normally book our own hotels or work directly with PR folks but there are times we use the trusty Interwebs for both reviews of accommodations and locating the best prices. Why spend all your travel money on accommodations when there so much to see in the world?? One that we use often is because it compares the prices on a number of different booking sites.
