Family Travel

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Posted on Oct 9, 2017

When my husband and I sat down this past winter to discuss possible destinations for our summer family trip, Jackson Hole, Wyoming quickly emerged as the winner. Between its breathtaking scenery, easy access to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, and endless options for family-friendly outdoor activities, it was an obvious great choice for our family of four.

Chileno Bay, Cabo San Lucas

Posted on Apr 14, 2017

My family traveled to Cabo San Lucas for spring break this year. I chose Cabo so we could see whales, ride camels (yes, you can ride camels in Cabo!), and sail around the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas, but also to stay at recently opened Chileno Bay, the newest hotel in Auberge Resorts’ collection. For those of you familiar with Auberge hotels (think Auberge du Soleil, Calistoga Ranch and Esperanza to name a few), any property that falls under their umbrella is guaranteed to be extraordinary, and Chileno Bay proved to be no exception. The service, setting, design, and cuisine are outstanding.

Hotel L’Orologio – Venice, Italy

Posted on Apr 9, 2016

Trying to pick a hotel in Venice is not an easy task, as there are so many incredible choices! I relied on the advice of a trusted hotel supplier and decided to try a brand new hotel on the scene – Hotel L’Orologio.  Its funky contemporary vibe wasn’t the type of property I was initially envisioning for my stay in Venice. As it turned out, this property couldn’t have been more perfect for my family.  I loved it the minute I walked through the door.

The New York EDITION, New York City

Posted on Jan 1, 2016

I’ve just returned from a wonderful post-Christmas trip to New York City with my family.  When I started making plans to visit the Big Apple, I didn’t have to think long about where I wanted to stay.  I’ve been intrigued by Ritz Carlton’s boutique EDITION hotels for awhile now, especially the newest one to come onto the scene, The New York EDITION.  The hotel opened last May and has received a warm welcome in a highly competitive city due to its top notch rooms, service and overall cool, yet unpretentious vibe.
