A Little Report from Berlin

My report from Berlin is going to be fairly brief. Not only was I just in Berlin two years ago, but I stayed in the exact same two hotels as I did last time: the Intercontinental and the Grand Hyatt.  Both were excellent last time, both were excellent this time.  The only difference was cash

A Brief Sao Paulo Stay and the Intercontinental Sao Paulo

Due to a series of events, my short time in Sao Paulo provided even less time to experience the city than I had planned – I didn’t explore the nightlife, restaurants, or museums at all really, and only saw a few of the main sights. Part of it was how late I got to my

Trip Report: 24 Hours in Paris and the Intercontinental Le Grand Paris Review

When I initially booked my stay in Paris, I was going to stay at one of the Radissons, using a free night certificate.  I was able to get a free night at the Intercontinental Le Grand, though, one of two Intercontinental hotels in Paris, on a successful best rate guarantee claim, so I figured I’d
