Copenhagen Part 1: The Hotels-  Radisson Blu Royal and Best Western Hotel Hebron Reviews

One reason why I stayed in Copenhagen only two nights was the expense of the city. Food and beverage is pretty pricey, but hotels were also astronomical. Indeed, many hotels were sold out 6 months in advance.  I decided I’d use my free night certificate from the devaluation of the Club Carlson credit card for

Hotel Review: Radisson Blu Le Dokhan’s Trocadero, Paris

We had a total of five nights in Paris. We could have done an Airbnb or apartment rental, but instead we split the stay into two different hotels – mindful of my boyfriend’s no-fun rule that he will not change hotels if it means less than two nights at a given property. Paris is a

Trip Report: Tallinn! The Ferry from Helsinki, the Radisson Blu Tallinn, and Exploring the City

When my boyfriend suggested we go to Finland, I knew I also wanted to squeeze in a stop in Estonia as well, as I had heard great things.  My boyfriend hadn’t heard these things, so thought it was just weird.   But there were better flight connections using Skymiles out of Tallinn than Helsinki, so we

Hotel Review: The Radisson Blu Plaza Helsinki

For our three nights in Helsinki, we stayed at the Radisson Blu Plaza Helsinki, a property I highly recommend.  Originally, I considered splitting our stay between the Radisson and the fancy-shmancy Hotel Kamp, a Starwood property, but I’m glad I didn’t. The hotel is a grand older building connected to a newer glass building.  The

Trip Report: Turku, Finland, and the Radisson Blu Marina Palace Review

Given the amount of time we had in Finland, we decided we wanted to spend some time in the country outside of Helsinki.  I generally enjoy exploring small to medium-sized cities, so narrowed it down to two options – Tampere and Turku.  Tampere is a little larger, and is a more industrial city, whereas Turku

Phuket is much larger than many people think, and is actually an entire island in Southern Thailand, with several different towns on it.  The largest is Phuket Town, in the center/east of the island.  Most of the bigger resorts are on the west side of the island, which has nicer beaches, but is also more

Trip Report: Madrid, Part III, The Radisson Blu Madrid Prado Review

When I booked this trip, I discovered that Madrid isn’t a great hotel city.  The few major chain properties, like the Westin Palace, are very expensive, as were the hotels available through Amex FHR and Visa Signature Hotels.  Since my flight out of Madrid was at 6am on Monday morning, I thought about getting a
