This summer, my family experienced the most memorable and adventurous trip we’ve ever taken together. Starting in Las Vegas and ending in Scottsdale, we covered over 1200 miles and slept in seven different locations throughout the US Southwest. To say we saw and did many amazing things is an understatement!
Enchantment Resort has been on my bucket list forever. Why? Because I’ve sent countless clients for 0ver 10 years, and the consistently rave reviews and instagrammable photos made it clear to me this was a hotel I needed to visit. There was no question when I sat down to map out a two week trek from Las Vegas to Phoenix for my family this summer, this iconic Southwest property was a not-to-miss stop.
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.
I decided to start a career in the travel industry over a decade ago because of my passion for planning trips and making clients’ travel dreams a reality. I quickly learned there was something even more to this amazing job – the wonderful sense of happiness and purpose I feel when my clients return from a trip I’ve planned for them and share their experiences with me. There’s absolutely nothing more rewarding or exciting!
I just spent a few days at the Four Seasons Washington, D.C., one of the mid-Atlantic’s finest luxury properties located in the heart of Georgetown and a stone’s throw from most of the area’s top attractions. Able to support over 40 languages, it’s a home away from home to guests from all over the world – everyone from business professionals to diplomats to families like mine. My experience was exceptional in every way – it was an absolute treat to be a guest here!
My family and I recently snuck away for a long weekend to Primland, a rising star in the luxury hotel industry. Located in the heart of the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia, this glorious retreat sits on 12,000 pristine acres and is an ideal get-away for both families and couples seeking respite from the real world.
I recently attended Brownell’s company meeting at the newly renovated Ritz Carlton Sarasota in southern Florida. I’d never visited this part of the Florida Gulf Coast before, so I arrived a day early to make sure I’d have enough time to experience the hotel as a leisure traveler before my meeting began. I’m so glad that I did! …
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.
As the last of the warm summer days were upon us in Virginia, I snuck away with my husband for an overnight stay at Virtuoso’s newest hotel, Keswick Hall. I wanted to see the extensive room renovations they recently completed after coming under new ownership and learn more about this new Virtuoso property right in my own backyard.
