Blue Point Grill

"rating=4 I'm not sure why it took me so long to get here but I'm so glad I did ! Just imagine having a menu with any type of fresh seafood or fish you ever wanted. The hardest thing about it is to have to choose! First we started off with a great local selection of scrumptious oysters. They were nicely presented and I loved the fact that they labeled all the oysters instead of just pointing them out when served. Now I know which ones I liked better for next time! Because there definitely will be a next time soon. For an entree I ordered the Tilefish which was so good. I don't usually see Tilefish on restaurant menu's that often so when I saw it on the menu at Blue Point Grill I had no problem deciding what I was going to order. And it was so fresh and delicious and expertly prepared -- grilled with just the right amount of seasoning. Their garlic mashed potatoes were also scrumptious. The restaurant gets pretty loud and must be so busy on weekends. We were there on a Monday evening and it was packed! It's worth the trip if you love great fish and seafood! Luckily you can plan ahead and get a reservation with Open Table. I hope this review was helpful for you. Enjoy!"

Mud City Crab House

"rating=5 One of the, if not THE best seafood restaurants in New Jersey. We’ve been coming here for years and this is the first review I’ve ever done for Mud City. Every time we come here, it’s seafood paradise. Today we had : Jumbo crab cakes — delish Calamari Seafood bisque - so good. Make sure you add the sherry! Lobsters!! YUMMMMMMM! I cannot wait to come back here again soon. And Maureen was our server and really helped make our meal even more enjoyable. She’s a pro and full of great personality and provides amazing service. We will be back again soon for sure !"

Agave Azul

"rating=5 Look no further! This is the Mexican restaurant you’ve been looking for. A local, authentic restaurant with a great vibe! I wish I could take it home with me to NJ! I was visiting Orlando and wanted some Mexican. I did a little search on Yelp, just like you’re doing now and bam! Agave Azul comes up with really good reviews. And it’s the truth! Scrumptious food! I had a great frozen margarita along with ... their amazing Street Coen on the cob, pictured below. The photo doesn’t do it justice but YUM! It’s so good..try it for sure. I also had the Tiera and Mar.. which was really good. So much food, I had lunch the next day! Oh and Jorge my server was excellent. He provided me with really great service and was very attentive. I’ll definitely be back next time I’m in town."

Quench Poolside Bar & Grill

"rating=5 Today I had Adam as my sever at the poolside Quench Bar & Grill. I stopped by for a quick lunch after enjoying some lazy river at the pool. The burger was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. Thank you JW for a great stay. I’ll be back!"

Gran Morsi

"rating=5 What a fun evening at Gran Morsi! We were in the area to enjoy an art opening for International Women’s Day across the street. When things got too busy at the opening, we went across the street for drinks. After drinks we went back to the gallery, finished up seeing the art show and told Jonathan, the restaurant manager ? That we would be back shortly for dinner. He couldn’t be more welcoming and helpful. So we returned in about an hour and sure enough, a wonderful corner table was waiting for the 4 of us! Dinner was excellent. We all shared a bunch of appetizers and pizzas. The food was very good. I especially loved the Autumn. Pizza with Brussels sprouts. Really yummy. The burrata was very good too along with meatballs, yummy. We really had a very enjoyable evening at this very welcoming Tribeca restaurant. Kudos to Jonathan for running a great ship! All of the servers were really nice to dine with. Thanks for a great evening!"

Jolly Pumpkin Café & Brewery

"rating=4 Enjoyed some very good appetizers and scrumptious beers. Loved the fries and really good beer selection."

Red Mesa Restaurant

"rating=3 We had a very nice meal at Red Mesa. Margaritas were good, but strange there was only one kind you could get. My dinner was tasty. I had the carne asada. I guess I’m a Mexican food snob, but I was expecting more. I think the company I was with and the margaritas I drank made me just enjoy my time here."

400 Beach Seafood and Taphouse

"rating=3 I enjoyed a nice lunch while staying across the street at the Vinoy. Lunch service was great. Great drinks. Food was just OK. I had the grouper sandwich and it was meh. Rose made up for it! Location was great and very relaxing. Eating outside al fresco was better than he food."

Parkshore Grill

"rating=4 When you’ve had enough Avocado Toast, it’s time for Lobster Toast. Thank you to my wonderful server, Alex for such great service and an awesome meal. The shrimp cocktail were also so nice and fresh. Just a great place to come and have a nice relaxing meal and enjoy the people watching and gorgeous weather."

Patricia Street Deli

"rating=5 Seriously, do not visit Jasper without having one of these awesome sandwiches. They’re perfect to take with you on a hike, or even if you live in town. No wonder they’ve been around for 14 years. These sandwiches are darn good and shouldn’t be missed. Enjoy!"

The Old Causeway Steak & Oyster House

"rating=1 We wanted to like this restaurant so much after being big fans of Mud City Crab House for many years. Unfortunately today we were very disappointed. We came for a late lunch, around 3pm, just when Happy Hour kicked off. Other than the bar crowd, the restaurant really wasn’t that crowded. Jessica was our server and we’re not sure what happened, but she must have either had too many tables or just didn’t care much about serving us. Our appetizers, (oysters and shrimp cocktail), came out after our entrees, and Jessica didn’t seem to think there was anything wrong with that. The whole flow of the meal was really off and it really was unfortunate because the food was really good. The oysters were delicious and the lobster roll was very nicely done. I wanted so much to like this place but the service was beyond horrendous. I can’t even imagine what this place is like when it’s busy. I’d rather go somewhere else where they appreciate my business and really care about their customers. We won’t be back again."

Jasper Brewing Company

"rating=4 What a fun, local place! Great food, cool vibe and awesome drinks. Rena was our sever and she did a great job making our dinner special and memorable. I ❤️Jasper!"

Tavola Trattoria

"rating=4 Had a great dinner here. The restaurant was quite busy and I can see why. The food was excellent. Really good quality, well prepared and a great menu. I had a pasta dish with beef tenderloin that was so good. I'd definitely go back again."

Table Mesa Bistro

"rating=4 Had a great business lunch at Table Mesa this week! I had the Salmon Salad and it was really fresh and delicious. The staff was extremely pleasant and professional. My client had the enchilada and she cleaned her entire plate so you know what that means ! I'd definitely go back again. Location is right across the Square from the Walton Museum."

Evan's Restaurant

"rating=4 Had a really nice dinner with my husband at Evan's! Joanna took care of us and we felt like we were part of the family. My Greek salad with London broil on top was delicious. My husband ordered a gyro wrap and he really enjoyed it too. I will definitely be back as the location is very easy to get to and it's so close to the entrance of the GS Parkway and even the Matawan Train Station where I commute. It looks like they also have a big take out biz so that could come in handy too. Only negative was the parking. Not many spots and backing out onto a main road is a little time-consuming and you have to be very careful exiting."

Meze Restaurant

"rating=4 Had a really nice brunch here this past President's Weekend. When so many places in town were all booked, we ventured here and had a great time. Service was very good for our large party and the food was very good. Many of us had the omelettes and they were very good. A nice time was had by all."

Catch NYC

"rating=4 Decided to try Out Catch with the restaurant week menu and We were not disappointed. What a nice dinner. We actually had to ask for the special restaurant week menu but it worked out really well I enjoy the MRC Roll appetizer - delish sushi and had the Mussels as my main course. They were very tasty. The sorbet was absolutely scrumptious. It had this nice crispy-crunchy base and it was sooo good. I'd definitely go back and bring friends. The only negative and it was pretty irritating was the close quarters of our table. I was constantly feeling squished and claustrophobic in my seat. The waitstaff kept squeezing next to me and it was very awkward."

NAYA

"rating=4 I work in the neighborhood and was looking for a good place to go for lunch. My co-workers said I must try Naya Express and I'm so glad I did. I had a really yummy falafel wrap and I've been back two more times since. Word of advice is that during lunchtime it gets very busy so either use Seamless or go during off hours. YUM!! You won't be disappointed. They have bowls and salads too so check it out."

Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse

"rating=5 Another delicious steak dinner at my favorite steakhouse, Del Frisco's. Omg was my strip steak cooked to perfection and tasted scrumptious. Don't waste your time trying to find a good steak elsewhere, make a reservation now and enjoy steak heaven. We had a great server-- Stephanie from Bloomington, IN. (GO HOOSIERS!!). She was really on her game and made some great suggestions. But seriously ... the steak. YUM!! We also had some great drinks.. my family loved the Pear Martini (forgot the name), but it's right on the menu. I enjoyed the Caesar salad and the Brussels Sprouts with bacon were very good. Dessert... two words.. Lemon Cake! The last thing I would ever order but it was surely worth the calories. We will definitely be back. We can't stay away! It's just that good."

Vaqueros Grill & Cantina

"rating=5 Who would have thought we would have found such great Mexican food by total accident. We decided to stop off at the Gold King Mine & Ghost Town at the top of the hill and were hugely disappointed they were closed. BUT instead we found this gem of a restaurant. The food was delicious and the funky decor was oh so colorful. I had the quesadilla appetizer as my main course and it was so nicely presented and had all kinds of veggies inside. I ordered mine with steak. Yum!! If you enjoy Mexican food and you're hungry, I would definitely treat yourself."

Hash Kitchen Gainey Ranch

"rating=5 It started with our "Coffee Experience," a wonderful French press blend. Our server Evan guided us with all the best selections. I enjoyed the Carnitas Hash which was heavenly. My father had the Berry pancakes, which he devoured and my son loved his Breakfast Lasagna. No wonder the lines are out the door. Everything was so good. And if I was in the mood for a Bloody Mary, THIS is the place. You can actually make your own! How cool is that. Get there early. It looks like everyone in town knows how good this place is. Pictures is my Carnitas Hash. Yum!"

Luna

"rating=3 I had dinner and breakfast here all week while on a business trip. The restaurant itself has a very nice vibe and ambiance. I was dining alone and the servers were very friendly and welcoming. They also provided very efficient service. The food was good, nothing too memorable, but everything was tasty and I enjoyed my meals with no complaints. It was very convenient while I was on my business trip."

Cowboy Club Grille & Spirits

"rating=5 Had a great meal here this evening. Felix, our server was very attentive and helpful. The food was delish and we all enjoyed our meals. My dad had the French dip and licked his plate clean. The highlight of the meal was the homemade apple crumb pie a la mode. It seemed to vanish in just moments. Overall it was a very pleasant dining experience. Oh and my prickly pear margarita was awesome!! What a nice evening !"

The Gourmet Whaler

"rating=4 Well, if you are craving some delicious fish tacos, head over to The Gourmet Whaler and treat yourself! We enjoyed a nice day at Sagamore Hill and I saw some great reviews for this restaurant and headed over for a nice lunch. The fish tacos were excellent, service was great and the setting is very cute. Our lunch took place in the Fall and it was very quiet and chill, which was heavenly! I'd definitely go back!"

Friedman's Lunch

"rating=4 I'm always looking for a great place to meet friends for a quick bite near Penn Station. Friendman's is just 1/2 block away on 31st Street and the location is perfect! Love the diverse menu which switches up the typical eggs and hash browns options."

Restaurant Nicholas

"rating=5 What an amazing dining experience we had at Nicholas. The food, drink and ambiance was really 5-star. Our waiter, Koba really helped make my husband's birthday celebration very special. He was attentive, (but not overly attentive), extremely helpful with menu suggestions and really added to our special occasion. My husband could not stop raving about his filet mignon and my halibut was excellent as well. You could tell all the food was prepared with incredible care and precision. The desserts were very special. The waitstaff knew to bring out a special birthday candle without me even mentioning anything ...other than my request on my Open Table reservation. My Cherry Cheesecake was seriously unreal and it was Koba's reco. I would have never ordered it on my own. Cheesecake never tastes as good as this one did. So glad I didn't miss that scrumptious dessert. We will definitely be back and you should go too! What a way to blow away your significant other for their birthday! Thank you, Koba and Restaurant Nicholas for making my husband's birthday a very memorable and special one!"

The Jellyfish Cafe

"rating=3 We came here because of all the great reviews. Honestly, it was just OK. I thought the menu would have been more creative, but it's a nice diner-like experience. The food was good and so was the service. It was just like every other breakfast place. I was a little underwhelmed."

Booskerdoo Fresh Roasted Coffee Co.

"rating=5 I absolutely LOVE this coffee. Bottle Rocket is my favorite bean. YUM!! I wish there were more locations around Monmouth county! I do like that I can also purchase coffee beans at Sickel's. ;)"

Beach Tavern

"rating=4 Went to Beach Tavern to celebrate a friend's birthday. beach Tavern was the special setting for a great time. While our service was on the slow side, the scenery and am ambiance was just what we needed. We all had the Tempura Cod sandwich and it was very good. I look forward to enjoying more fun times here again soon."

Spike's Fish Market & Restaurant

"rating=4 If you're looking for fresh Jersey Shore seafood, this is the place. It's nothing fancy - - you eat on picnic tables inside, but the seafood is just delicious. I had a very good shrimp salad sandwich with lobster bisque and I was in heaven. SO GOOD."

Shipwreck Point

"rating=5 Really enjoyed our Easter dinner tonight. Earl was our waiter and did a fabulous job. Service was great and the food was superb. For appetizers we had the shrimp cocktail and lobster bisque which were both excellent. My husband and I both had the NY Strip and they were both cooked to perfection and delish! Not sure how we even had room for dessert, but we ordered the blueberry creme brûlée and it was really very good. So all in all, we had a great dining experience eat Shipwreck Point and we will be back. And even the owner, Richard made sure we had a great experience. He came over a couple of times and really made us feel well-taken care of."

Andaluca

"rating=4 I was staying at the hotel and really enjoyed the breakfasts each morning. The servers were very nice and pleasant and they were very efficient too. The food was yummy and they never let my coffee cup get too low, they were always there to refill it!"

Purple Cafe and Wine Bar

"rating=5 Great, creative food. Loved the wine flights! Made me want to take a vacation to the vineyards! Waitstaff was very pleasant, patient and helpful. Cool ambiance too."

Undici

"rating=5 Really enjoyed our dinner at Undici. We came for restaurant week and will definitely be back again. Everything about our meal was excellent. The food, the service, (Kevin, our server, was awesome and very attentive). I had the Papalina pasta which was scrumptious. The mussels were also very good and loved the biscotti with cannoli filling for dessert. YUM!"

Uncle Bill's Pancake House

"rating=4 Very good pancakes. I had the Iowa Corn pancakes and they really had corn inside. We went early to avoid the crowds. Have fun and enjoy!"

Marvis Diner

"rating=5 We at here two times during this past Memorial Day weekend and both times it was delish! Great service from Stephanie , our waitress and the food was really good and plentiful. My coffee cup was never empty as they kept providing me with refills. Just a really good, dependable breakfast that you can always count on. Great, friendly staff too!"

Dogtooth Bar & Grill

"rating=4 We enjoyed a nice dinner at The Dog Tooth. Very busy place with good food and a great happy hour. Parking is tough. Have quarters for the meters! Oh and get there early or you will definitely be waiting for a table."

The Lobster House

"rating=5 I almost didn't go to the Lobster House after reading some very poor reviews here on Trip Advisor. And honestly, if I didn't go, I would have missed out! We had a really awesome time at The Lobster House and our food was amazing. I read all the "tourist trap" reviews and so glad I looked pat them. One thing we did to try to avoid the crowds was to come EARLY. I think that was the best idea because this place does pack it in. I was really in the mood for a good lobster and that's exactly what I got! I enjoyed a great 2 pound lobster that was sweet and delicious. Huge claws and lots of meat in the tail too. YUM!!!! Our waitress was really friendly and provided us with great service. The prices were very fair. My 2 pound steamed lobster was only $31.95. Pretty good deal for lobster and it comes with a salad and vegetable too. I will definitely be back. You should go too! Just go early, you won't be disappointed. Oh and we ate indoors in the dining room. There are a few different areas to eat, like on the boat or outside on the deck. There are probably different menus. ENJOY!"

Emeril's Chop House

"rating=5 We came to Bethlehem specifically to go to Emeril's Chophouse. We have been to other Emeril's restaurants before and always enjoyed our meals immensely! This location did not disappoint! We had a great table with an awesome server, Stephanie. While I previously read other reviews about the restaurant being smokey and that you could hear the casino --- totally not true where we sat. Yes, it's just off the casino, but then ask for a specific table and I'm sure they will try to accommodate you. The food was delicious, our meal was not rushed and they even helped us celebrated our anniversary with some scrumptious chocolate covered strawberries. Just a really enjoyable dinner. The prices weren't outrageous either. We both ordered the specials and had plenty of food. I'd definitely come back. Thanks, Emeril for a wonderfully memorable meal."

Pelican Landing

"rating=4 Great food and drinks and even dessert. The view is amazing in this hidden gem. Don't miss it. You won't be sorry!"

Lazy Days Restaurant

"rating=4 Had a great time after Robbie's Fishing charter and brought our catch to the restaurant. Great location right on the beach with a gorgeous ocean view. Very memorable, relaxing and picture perfect."

Toro Toro Restaurant

"rating=4 We were staying at the hotel and wanted to enjoy a fun dinner. Had a bunch of different appetizers and each one was delicious. Just so convenient too. I'd definitely go back when in Miami again."

Original Pancake House

"rating=5 Very good pancakes and amazing service! I'd definitely go back if i didn't live so far away!"

Elote Cafe

"rating=5 This is an amazing restaurant located in Sedona. From the amazing margaritas, to the delicious entrees, you can't go wrong. There was a bit of a wait for our table, but after a cucumber jalapeno margarita, you won't have a care in the world. Go!"

The Blue Lion

"rating=5 Really enjoyed this restaurant. Their outdoor deck was great. Delicious rack of lamb - - it looked like everyone else was ordering it too...scrumptious. I wish this restaurant was closer to home. Yum!"

Residence Inn by Marriott New York Manhattan/Central Park

"rating=4 We had a really nice stay at the Residence Inn. We had a clean modern room right in the middle of Times Square. Perfect location after a Broadway show. There wasn’t much of a lobby, pretty much just an area with the front desk. All was good though. The hotel was just what we needed. Room was quiet and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was very modern and clean too. I’d stay here again. Below is a view from our room."

JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes

"rating=5 Two words... LAZY RIVER! And that's the only reason I booked this hotel. And yes, it lived up to the hype. I loved every lap around the lazy river. It's a gorgeous pool and I guess September is a great time to enjoy it too. I loved everything about it. There were plenty of lounge chairs to go around. I could say that I think the pool service could have been better as there really weren't many servers I saw while I was there. The poolside restaurant was nearby and I saw people walking over there to get drinks if you wanted them. But otherwise I really enjoyed my time at the JW. So much so that I came back the following week after my business meetings were over to get more lazy river !! The Starbucks and Bodega store were great places for breakfast and a light bite. The Farm to Table Kitchen restaurant was very good. I even visited the farm on the Sunrise Safari and that was fun. Desiree the concierge helped me get on that tour and it was excellent. Norm from the Ritz Carlton did a great tour and I learned all about the adjoining Ritz Carlton property. But for me, it was all about relaxing at the JW Lazy River. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was. The kids section is across the pool and if you really wanted to relax you could find a nice quiet area near a waterfall and chill by yourself with no screaming kids. The Lazy River is huge, with areas to just chill and swim. I will definitely be back!"

The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

"rating=5 Who knew the Ritz Carlton property was full of nature ? I decided to explore the property and take the Sunrise Safari also offered through the JW Marriott where I was staying next door. Desiree the concierge at the JW was extremely helpful in getting me a last minute reservation. Turns out I was the only one on the tour and lucked out on a Monday morning tour. Norm was my guide and he was very informed and interesting about the nature and beautiful Ritz Carlton property. It’s amazing what lurks around the property when you really smell the roses and get up early to check it out. We road around in a golf cart and got into all the crevices on the property. Some of the things we saw were... - Heron - Fish feeding including Tilapia and some other fish I forget the name of! - Turtles - Otter - Deer - Alligator and baby Alligator - Beautiful flowers - Farm to Table working farm with all sorts of animals including ducks, quail, bee hives , fruits and Overall I would highly recommend this enjoyable and relaxing tour. Norm did a great job educating me about the entire property!"

Detroit Metro Airport Marriott

"rating=5 After several canceled flights from United, we headed over to the Marriott to get a good night’s sleep for our flight the next day. The hospitality we received was extraordinary and everyone really made us feel at home. We are currently still waiting for our flight to leave Detroit due to bad weather, (yes, 6 canceled flights). Adrienne our server at the restaurant served us from breakfast til 4pm when she left and she couldn’t have been nicer. So we are here for another night waiting for our flight. Hopefully we can get back home, but if we can’t, we know we are in good hands. Our room was a good sized while it wasn’t the most up to date and modern, it was clean and bedbug free! I’d definitely stay here again."

Homewood Suites by Hilton St. Petersburg Clearwater

"rating=3 Had a nice stay here last week. Everything was very nice here and the hotel was very convenient to my offices across the street, you could practically walk there. And that’s my only complaint. The hotel is on a major main road. Crossing the street to get to the office complex is close to impossible. The traffic light basically never changes. I waited over 20 minutes to cross the street and gave up. We wound up taking the hotel shuttle that they provided. The room was nice and while I never really got to use the suite part, the room was a nice size and had all of the kitchen amenities including a full sized fridge, stove, etc. you could hear some traffic off the main road at night. The front desk staff were all very nice as well."

The Ritz-Carlton, Naples

"rating=5 “When you close your eyes, what will you see?” That was a video that magically started playing on my TV in my room. And that’s how the Ritz Carlton Naples makes you feel. It left me with some great memories! I was only there for a short, 2-day weekend trip, and the staff treated me like a queen. As a solo traveler, the staff made me feel warm & welcomed. Everything from taking my car at the valet, to the delicious food, to sitting and relaxing by the pool, my entire stay was totally enjoyable. My room was so clean and totally sound-proof. I felt like I was the only person on my floor. I had a nice view which you can see below. Sunsets were beautiful and a big thing at the resort. Just go down to the beach and enjoy it on the beautiful sandy beach. I’d definitely recommend this resort if you’re thinking about a nice, relaxing getaway. Naples is beautiful and so is this special Ritz Carlton and all of their staff."

The Vinoy® Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club

"rating=3 Very nice hotel that has a lot of good to it, and then it needs a lot of updating. My room on the 6th floor in the main building was very nice. It was relaxing and very quiet. The pool area needs updating and one thing that bothered me was being asked for my room key upon entering the pool, like I wasn’t a paying customer. There’s gotta be a better way. Look me up in the computer. I’m on vacation, dude. Overall the resort location is very nice. The main restaurant, Marchand’s had a really nice breakfast. The restaurant ambiance is quite nice and roomy/airy. Service was very good as well. There’s a big breakfast buffet but I didn’t need all that food. Very busy hotel. Lots of weddings too. The whole area is very nice and you don’t even need a car. Just Uber it wherever you want to go. It’s a lot easier than dealing with a rental."

Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel

"rating=5 Thank you Marriott!! I wish I could have a hotel experience like this every time! What a great stay on so many levels. We actually stayed here for two nights. First night our flight got in late at the beginning of our trip. And the 2nd night was a week later at the end of our vacation. I cannot tell you how convenient it is to just roll right out of bed I to the airport. It’s literally that close. And it doesn’t stop there. It’s a fairly new hotel and it’s very clean and modern. Every employee was extremely friendly and helpful in every way. We loved the Yakima Social Kitchen + Bar and had several meals there. We had great meals with Carly, Kera and Amy as our servers. One night we even met Bruno the GM and he was equally as warm and welcoming. I’m not sure if it’s just Canada or if I’ve spent too much of my life in NYC, but Canadians are super nice and friendly. The food was always well prepared, fresh and delicious. I’m a huge foodie and was impressed. They have two desserts that are just off the hook that you should try. The Deep Fried Cheesecake and omg.. Warm Toffee Pudding is just way out of this world. It’s the photo on the right and I’ve never in my life had something like this. SO good! The picture doesn’t even do it justice. But get it, you won’t be sorry. Our son got us access to the M Lounge which was really pretty incredible. A great place to relax and chill and enjoy the views of the Tarmac. Our room was really clean and fresh and well appointed. Brand new spanky new bathrooms and a nice sized room. Every hotel stay should be this nice. I cannot say enough about this hotel. It’s super well run, modern and steps away from your airline gate. Stay here ! You’ll be happy you did."

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

"rating=5 What an incredible time we had this week at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. One thing for sure is that this visit was a memory to last a lifetime for my family. It started with the super-warm greeting from Paddy at the main entrance as we checked in. Paddy was so warm and welcoming, we even got into talking about my hometown heroes NY Islanders hockey team from back in the 1980s. And that’s how you will be treated during your entire stay, as an important guest of the Fairmont family. The property is just beyond majestic. You’re actually in a National Park so everything is so chill and low key. And you can make this vacation whatever you want it to be. You can use all of their amenities like a gorgeous outdoor poor and hot tub or take out a canoe, play at the #1 golf club in Canada, play tennis, ride horses, enjoy the spa, ice skate., or do absolutely nothing but whatever makes you happy. It’s pretty amazing. The food and drinks were excellent. We enjoyed lots of great food and also some amazing scenery out on the patio.. where we had some great service by Bre, Alana and Jenni, to name a few of the really professional staff that attended to us during our stay. I have to say the Pear Martini was such a great drink. I wish I could take it home with me ! Wildlife is abundant around the Lodge and right now it’s rutting season so elk are everywhere. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. It’s a little rustic. I’m not sure how many rooms have been renovated or to what capacity. I don’t think our room was recently renovated but seriously with all the beauty at this Lodge, you shouldn’t be spending time in your room. I don’t think we put the TV on once. So if you’re looking for an awesome getaway for couples or family or even business function, this is the place. I cannot say enough. Fairmont definitely has a slice of heaven here in Jasper. Don’t I miss it."

DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Bentonville

"rating=4 I stay here for a business trip and had a great stay. The entire hotel staff was extremely friendly and couldn't be more accommodating and customer-focused. The free shuttle service was so helpful. They'll gladly take you anywhere within 5 miles and that was really convenient, especially for meetings nearby. The restaurant was surprisingly good and I really enjoyed the Southwest Steak Salad that was very fresh and tasty. My room was very comfy, clean, quiet and I slept like a rock each night. So all in all I would highly recommend this hotel when you're looking for place to stay in Bentonville. I'd definitely come back here next time I'm in town."

Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa

"rating=4 On a gorgeous Summer weekend, I found myself with nothing to do and planned a last-minute getaway to Mystic. I'm so glad I did!! The hotel did not disappoint and the folks at the front desk couldn't have been more helpful at check in, making sure I had everything I needed to have a great weekend. They suggested great local beaches to go to and also provided printed out directions which was key! My room was very nice and spacious. I even enjoyed a nice dinner at Octagon. The food was delish and amazing service. So easy as I didn't have to go very far. And with all the crazy traffic in mystic during the summer, having a decent restaurant right at your fingertips was clutch. I didn't spend time at the Red Door Spa but I'm sure it would have been heavenly! One of the #1 things I planned to do was to have my annual lobster roll at Abbott's Lobster in the Rough. Their lobster roll has to be the best in the northeast. If you haven't tried it, you should go! Everything about Abbotts is amazing. But get there early. Summertime there is a huge line. I got there before 1130 and so glad I did. Mystic is also very close to Watch Hill which is a gorgeous little New England beach town. So all in all, my little Mystic Getaway was fabulous and I really had a great time at the Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa. I will be back for sure!!"

Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest

"rating=4 We had a very nice stay here at the Marriott Ypsilanti. I'll bet it's gorgeous during the Summer months because it was beautiful to look at this past weekend in March! Check in was very quick and efficient. Bethany (or Brittany) was super nice, welcoming and friendly upon our arrival. The lobby is quite spacious with tons of places to relax and enjoy your stay. The very helpful people at the bar set us up with some great beverages as we watches NCAA basketball on one of the many big screen TVs. They couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. The bed was very comfy and while the room could use some updating, it was clean, neat and bedbug free! The only thing that was a pain was the drive back and forth to Ann Arbor. It's a bit of a drive to downtown. 20 minutes each way got to be a drag. So if you want to be in downtown Ann Arbor, just know it's a bit of a hike. If you are staying on the premises and playing golf and enjoying the resort, then you're the lucky one! This place is for you! We had a great stay!"

Washington Marriott at Metro Center

"rating=5 Yup, this was just what we needed for our President's Weekend getaway. What a great location too! Right at the Metro stop so not only is the hotel in a perfect location to all attractions but if you want to travel around via the Metro it's right there. And the room? We must have been upgraded to a really nice corner room and the bed was SO COMFY! I wish I could have taken it home with me. There was a huge big screen TV that we didn't even turn on!! The bar/restaurant downstairs was so convenient for a late night drink or snack. And Starbucks is also in the lobby. What more do you need ?? It's worth paying a few dollars more. Oh and it's shopping galore right across the street if you need it. Macy's, Nordstrom Rack, Saks off 5th. There's not enough time in a weekend to do everything! Just go and have fun!"

Courtyard by Marriott Sedona

"rating=5 This Marriott Courtyard was only 10 weeks old when we stayed here this week. What a find. Everything was brand new and we had a great 2 night stay here. Starting from our check in, the whole staff was so accommodating and warm. The location is just right out of the center of town and that was fine as it was just a couple of minutes from the hustle and bustle of the main downtown area. If you have your own transportation it should be no big deal. We had a nice view right outside our window and really enjoyed the "Living Room" area off the main lobby to watch the big football game on their big screen TV. The couches were even designed with outlets to charge your mobile phones/ electronics. So cool. The room was a nice comfy size with all new and modern design and comfortable bedding. The restaurant was also good for bistro-like food and drinks when you needed it. The severs were extremely friendly and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again if I was in town. Thank you Marriott for creating this awesome new location. I hope all new Courtyard locations are like this in the future."

Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park

"rating=5 Stayed here for a week while on a business trip last week and had a wonderful stay. I do not have one complaint. The staff did a great job at making sure I was enjoying my stay. My room was very clean and modern and had a nice view of the Lake. I absolutely LOVED the nature preserve and made it a point to walk across it every day to work. Very cool critters everywhere including alligators, heron, pelicans, cool ducks and more! I'd definitely stay here again. Thank you Hilton St. Pete!"

Lotus Inn

"rating=4 We had a great experience at The Lotus Inn. The staff was really friendly and the accomodations, while not totally modern, were clean and comfy. The staff really couldn't be more helpful. They recommended great restaurants nearby, (with coupons), and we had also luckily had amazing weather. The Lotus Inn is just one block from the beautiful beach. It was really a nice getaway. LOVE LOVE LOVE the NO SMOKING policy. So if you smoke, I would steer clear of this place. They don't want your business or your stinky cigarettes. Oh and the pricing is very reasonable too. I liked that part a lot. Great value for your dollar. I'd definitely come back here again - - maybe even this Summer! :)"

La Residenza City

"rating=3 We enjoyed our stay at La Residenza very much. The staff could not have been more helpful. They're obviously used to helping American tourists. They really helped remove any language barrier we may have had. Incredible breakfast - - i mean, incredible. These reviews don't lie. The breakfast is HUGE and fit for a king and included in your stay! The rooms were a nice size and while they're not contemporary, they're very clean. The only problem I had was that there was NO air conditioning. And we were there in April. I cannot imagine what it's like now in the Summer. Location was great and the front desk was very helpful with everything we needed - - restaurant suggestions, arranging a taxi, or whatever we needed. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Oh and if you're worried about the location being near the Gentleman's club - - it's a non-issue. Don't worry about it. It's far from being in a bad area. Wifi was free, but spotty."

The Westin Chicago North Shore

"rating=4 We had a great weekend stay at the Westin this past weekend. Our room was clean and comfortable and even though we had a Priceline room, the hotel was helpful and provided us with two double beds so our son could join us too. The hotel also has a nice restaurant in close walking distance, Cooper's a Hawk, which was very convenient and delish. I would not hesitate to stay at the Westin again."

Mayflower Park Hotel Seattle

"rating=4 This was a business trip for me, so my travel agent picked the hotel. There's a reason that they are the professionals! This hotel was wonderful. They actually read my travel profile and kept me away from the ice machines and elevators! Amazing! No one ever reads that! So they put me on the top floor with a very nice view too. The room was a nice size with great toiletries too! They had this great lemon verbena shampoo and conditioner that I loved. And I'm very lucky with that stuff and even brought my own, yet used theirs, The location was amazing and right in the middle of the city with all the action. Near the mall, monorail, restaurants, Nordstrom, Macys, The Public Market, etc. Even the hotel restaurant was very nice and I had a couple of delish breakfasts there with great service. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good quality hotel with great caring service. And the room was extremely quiet. I heard no other guests in the halls or outside noise. Could the hotel use a little updating? Yes, probably, but it was clean and comfy. Oh and check in was fast and very pleasant. The front desk and bellman were always helpful and great with directions and ideas of things to do."

Best Western Lehigh Valley Hotel & Conference Center

"rating=3 We were looking for a quick Bethlehem, PA getaway and found the Best Western Plus through a great deal on Priceline. The hotel is just a short drive into the town of Bethlehem. The hotel definitely needs updating but it's clean and neat and the rooms are very spacious. The free breakfast is quite ample and our check in was quick and easy by a very lovely woman at the front desk. Just know that if you stay on the 2nd floor that there is no elevator and it could be a very long walk to the lobby/restaurants area, so just ask. The best part of our top was enjoying Emeril's Chop House. Yum! I'd come back to Bethlehem for that alone! I'm sure it's also much nicer in the area when it's warm and summertime!"

Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina

"rating=5 I was lucky to get the Hyatt Regency via Priceline for a couple of days during Christmas week. I was very pleased with my entire stay and can't say enough good things. From the warm welcome we had at check-in, to the General Manager himself making sure we had a pleasant visit, I will definitely come back to this hotel again. The pool area is very nice and relaxing. No problem getting a lounge chair. But one thing---the hotel should have a smoking area, or just keep the pool non-smoking! You can get drinks and food by the pool which is always very nice. Our room was large and spacious with a modern bathroom. There was also a great view of the marina and nearby cruise ships as well. One of our favorite places to eat and just chill was the Hyatt's Pelican Lounge. I wish I knew the name of the gentleman from check-in that recommended it to me. Without his reco, I never would have known it even existed. The Pelican Lounge is a restaurant a short walk away from the hotel in the marina area. It sits high atop the marina area with a great view of all the gorgeous yachts and boats coming in and out of the waterways. The food was very good, awesome drinks and they even have delicious desserts. So thank you to Glen, the General Manager of the Hyatt Regency for helping make our family trip so enjoyable and memorable."

InterContinental Miami

"rating=4 Had a really nice stay here at the Intercontinental during holiday week. Hotel accommodations are very nice and our room was clean, modern and LOVED the huge open window facing the ocean and all the cruise ships. It was literally a picture postcard and I don't think I have spent more time looking out an oceanfront view than here! Just gorgeous. Nice hotel restaurants and very pleasant staff. Lobby was very cool and spacious. The Starbucks was convenient, however it has strange hours, but maybe because it was the holidays when we were there. I'd definitely come back!"

Millennium Broadway New York Times Square

"rating=4 Had a very nice stay at this hotel. Won a Priceline bid form$150 plus tax and that actually helped my review here. Not sure I would rate this hotel 4 stars as it has quite a bit to do with updating and renovations, but for our short overnight stay it did the trick. Close to everything and even one of my favorite restaurants, Bond 45. (You must go and won't be disappointed). The rooms are a good size, shower worked great, even though bathrooms could use updating. I'd stay here again if price was decent."

Radisson Hotel Phoenix Airport

"rating=4 Needed a hotel by the airport and got a great deal on Priceline. We were really pleasantly surprised! Not only did we had a great room, but I don't think i ever heard an airplane! Husband LOVED the pool, we enjoyed the restaurant very much, (great service and delish hamburgers). I'd highly recommend this hotel. They're doing a great job there. Thanks for a great stay!"

The Phoenician, a Luxury Collection Resort, Scottsdale

"rating=5 I booked two days at the Phoenician and we all really enjoyed ourselves. We stayed at the Casitas and had a lovely room with a patio outside. The bathroom was ginormous, we all could have camped out in there it was so big! Two sinks, a lovely shower, big walk in closet, a bathroom and a huge tub! The pools were OK -- a little dated. Staff was nice and friendly and overall we had a very nice time. The golf course restaurant was very good and they have amazing burgers and scrumptious margaritas. I think that was the best part of the whole stay!"

Holiday Inn Bloomington W MSP Airport Area

"rating=4 This is the second time we stayed at the Holiday Inn. The first time, in March, I had a poor experience and via TripAdvisor I was given the name of the General Manager to talk to. So when my travel plans called for a visit to Bloomington again this month, I reached out to speak with the GM and he personally made sure that my room was just right. The only thing that I didn't like again this time was the service at breakfast. But I realize that next time I'll go elsewhere for breakfast and not include the Holiday Inn for my breakfast plans, and that's quite OK."

Hyatt Regency Chicago

"rating=4 Got the room via Priceline and was VERY happy with it. Location was great, close to restaurants, shopping and everything you need. Only drawback was the $52 valet parking, and I wish I knew i could have paid far less right down the block. Silly tourist me! Our room was nice, very clean, nicely decorated and pretty up to date furniture and furnishings. It was hard to believe we were staying in such a large hotel. Someone's doing a good job!"

Sea Spray Motel

"rating=5 Well, TripAdvisor , you were right again! After reading so many great reviews about the Sea Spray Motel, I just had to check it out. Not only was I impressed, but I will definitely be back! The motel was extremely clean, well taken care of and maintained. We had a 2nd floor room with a small kitchenette and it even had a small ocean view. The pool was large with umbrellas and plenty of chaise lounge chairs. There are even several BBQ grills you can use if you want. Staff was very nice and friendly too, and made us feel at home. Sea Spray is my new "go to" motel, for LBI. But shhhhh, don't tell too many people, I'll never get a reservation again this summer."

The Benjamin

"rating=4 Had a very nice stay at The Benjamin. While we are local, (from NJ), we were just looking for a nice hotel to stay overnight and enjoy some family birthday celebrations and the city. The Benjamin did the trick. Walking distance to Central Park and all the 5th Avenue/Madison Avenue shops, very close to the subway and an extremely accommodating staff. They were doing some renovation in the lobby and things didn't look "perfect." I think that will all be taken care of very soon -- it didn't have any bad effect on my room. Bed was comfy, and bathroom was small but clean. Only disappointment was that once we were home, my husband realized he left his iPhone in the room. He kept trying numerous to retrieve it by calling the hotel and they claimed it wasn't there. Finally, he got go the right person and went back and got it. Why didn't they just call us and let us know we left it? Other than the phone incident, we had a great stay."

Courtyard by Marriott Denver West/Golden

"rating=3 A nice, clean Courtyard. Just what you would expect from Marriott. I was here on business and I'm sure I'll be staying here again soon."

Cambria Hotel Chicago Magnificent Mile

"rating=4 I stayed here for two nights for business and had a terrific stay. The hotel offers an amazing location - - right out the door from the Magnificent Mile...which is right at your fingertips. Famous Gino's East is next door, Neiman's two doors away, Apple Store on the corner - oh, and the North Western University Hospital about a block away. That is the only drawback - the noise. I stayed on the 4th floor, facing the lovely hospital - and if you can suck up the noise-factor, it's fine. I think by the time I left, I was pretty used to it. Working in NYC, you would think it wouldn't bother me, but just keep the noise factor in mind if it's something that will bother you. It's pretty constant - 24/7. That said, the staff at the hotel is just so nice - - from the people at the front desk, the bellmen, restaurant staff -- they're all going out of their way for you. The room was very nice too! All very modern with great appointments. Large, modern bathroom with a great shower, (water pressure a little low - wonder if they are saving the planet), lots of mirrors everywhere and VERY clean. Internet was an additional charge per day. My king size bed was very comfy - helped me sleep and drown out the noise! So all in all, I would totally stay here again. I hear Priceline has some great deals too. I should only be so lucky! But - I'd pay full price to stay here again. It would be worth it!"

Best Western Plus Landmark Inn

"rating=3 This hotel was OK. I booked it on Priceline for about $55, so I really can't complain. The location is good if you want to be near Olympic Park or be near the slopes I guess. We were there in the summer and just wanted to stay in Park City and do some sightseeing, it did the trick. The free buffet breakfast - everyone seemed to be raving about it online here at Trip Advisor- it was just OK - - really nothing to write home about. No different than any other free bfast a hotel gives out, other than they had some hot food - eggs, sausages, etc. Can't say it was that great...it came out of the box/freezer! It's nothing gourmet, believe me. But overall, the room was clean and neat and it was a great deal through Priceline."

Coral Seas Oceanfront Motel

"rating=4 We have stayed here a couple of times this summer and it's really a great spot. Nothing fancy - but it's a beach motel. They have a very nice pool, the management is very nice and accomodating. If you're looking for a nice getaway, without paying an arm and a leg, this is a really nice spot. The motel is a few steps away from the beach - you can't get any closer! Rooms are nothing fancy, but everything's clean and neat and I'd definitely stay here again. Close to shopping and restaurants - you don't even need to drive. Have fun!"

Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa

"rating=5 I booked this trip for some personal R&R and I really got exactly what I was looking for. Great pool scene and a gorgeous beach that, while I was there, was very relaxing and not crowded at all. The room was modern and updated as well as being very clean. The big hotel restaurant buffet dinner -- i was very skeptical about, but it turned out to be very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this hotel - i had a great time. Next time, I'll take the family. It really looked like a great place for kids too."

Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel

"rating=4 This is the 2nd Renaissance hotel I have stayed at recently, and I have to say, I'm enjoying these properties. They really take care of you and service really seems to be a top priority for this hotel chain. I was given a really nice end room with two large windows facing the Chicago theater. The room was very spacious, contemporary and clean. There's a whole mini mall attached to the hotel so you don't have to walk outside in the freezing cold - - there's a small little store attached that serves Starbucks or you can walk inside the building and find a whole Starbucks store. There's a neat little fastfood-like dumpling restaurant that's great for a quick bite. The location can't be beat - - i could practically walk to all my meetings. There was great shopping nearby and the L stops were there too, even though i didn't use it. I really enjoyed my visit. I would totally stay at this hotel again for business or pleasure."

Adam's Mark

"rating=5 We stayed here for two nights in August while were were visiting family. It's funny how people can have such different experiences in the same hotel! Maybe it was b/c I got this hotel for $50/nite + tax through Priceline, I wasn't so critical? Nonetheless, I thought the hotel was a great value, front desk was super nice, the room was clean and neat and modern...what more can you ask? I'd definitely stay here again -- and I'd pay regular price too! The bartender off the lobby was really friendly and pleasant. They served coffee there and were very accomodating."

New York Hilton Midtown

"rating=2 We stayed here at the Hilton for a long, Easter weekend. The Hilton Club actually invited my husband and I to check out their new 57th Street property - and we tacked on an additional day to enjoy the city sites - - a good idea, you would think? Well, we were probably better off going home. The hotel is like Grand Central Station - especially the entire lobby area which was loaded with people, noise and NO security! Anyone could get into the hotel off the street and onto your floor without showing ID. We were never asked for a room key. The elevators were horrible. We were consistently waiting going up and going down for an available elevator. By the end of our stay, it was growing pretty old. The glorfied "cafeteria-style restaurant" was SO overpriced - - breakfast for our family of 3 was $76.00!! It was just breakfast! There was no free internet, I think the charge was something like $12 or 14 per day. Ugh. And let's not forget the $42/day we paid for parking. I needed a serious trip to the cash machine to take care of all the expenses on this little NYC getaway. (and i'm from NJ!!!) The finale of the stress was upon checkout. Before we decided to tack on an additional day, the gentleman at the front desk quoted us a $225 corporate rate. We get our bill and it says $299!!! It took about 20 minutes to settle this dispute that wasn't even our fault. The manager at the front desk was rude and completely didn't take our word for this rate. (Like we made it up??). Oh, and I even forgot about how we were locked out of our room because they had us checked out. We then had to go to the front desk and get new keys! Finally, everything's settled with the front desk, they finally honored our $225. We were going to finish up the rest of our double decker bus tour. We decide to check our luggage at the hotel. Would you believe the Hilton wanted to charge us $3.50 PER bag to store our luggage? Just what I needed to spend, another $14. At that point, I was like -- let's just go home. We all had enough of this Hilton hotel. I'll never stay at that hotel and ..and forget about even thinking of buying their time share property - the reason we came to the hotel in the first place. They were very rude and unaccomodating at the front desk. If you're looking to spend some time in NYC, do yourself a favor, stay somewhere else where you can be treated like a human being. Ugh!"

Homewood Suites by Hilton Wilmington-Brandywine Valley

"rating=5 I started out and searched TripAdvisor for the #1 place to stay in the area - and this is where it took me. I have to say; time and time again, TripAdvisor doesn't disappoint me! We had a great two nights at this hotel. The room was very comfy, large living space, big kitchen, desk/kitchen table, huge bedroom with a King size bed. Breakfast was free and nicer than most of those cheapy ones. You could make your own Belgian waffles, they had omlets, eggs, etc. I'd definitely stay here again. Thanks again TripAdvisor! You rock!"

The Mansion at Glen Cove

"rating=3 We just needed a hotel to stay at overnight while we were attending a nearby party. My husband got a good deal on Priceline so that's what brought us here. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms were fine, nothing fancy. We didn't eat anything there but the room was clean and neat and was just what we needed. They were having a wedding there the night we stayed there and the place looks like a big conference center/business meeting location. All in all - no complaints."

Marriott's Fairway Villas

"rating=5 I went here as a girlfriends getaway weekend and really had a great time. The adult, (16+) pool was quiet and enjoyable, the large 2 bedroom villa was really very neat and clean and quiet. I felt really relaxed - and location was even not too far from Ocean City and Atlantic City. The room price was a little on the high side, but my girlfriend and I split the cost and that made it not-so-bad. Are there ever discounts on this place? I would love to go back! Next time, I'll book the spa ahead of time. I guess the Elizabeth Arden spa books up fast. We didn't eat at the Marriot - we always went off property. There was a great greek restaurant just up the road. Yum! It was a great getaway. I'll definitely go back!"

Boston Marriott Copley Place

"rating=5 All I can say is for $95 with Priceline, (plus taxes of course), this place is a gem. It's in a great location, near all sorts of shopping, restaurants and in a great neighborhood - I can't say enough. There's even a Shaw's grocery store right across the Street. Our room was HUGE! They gave us a corner room which was ginormous! The hotel was very clean and well-maintained. The only thing that bothered me was a rather long check in time at the front desk. I guess that's because the hotel is huge and it was a holiday weekend. I'll just let that one slide and just be thankful that my two nights were very enjoyable. I'd go back there in a second when I'm in Boston again."

Loews Philadelphia Hotel

"rating=5 I booked this hotel as a last minute birthday getaway and I'm so glad I selected Loews. From the minute I checked in, it was full, first class service all the way. I was greeted with -- "Happy Birthday." They gave us a high floor with a great view and the room was very nice and clean, flat panel TV, MP3 hook up -- comfy beds -- just a great hotel. They even sent room service up with a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries. They even gave my 12 yr old son this backpack filled with goodies! He loved it. Except for thoe $34 parking charge per day, I was very pleased with the hotel. But then again, it's downtown Philadelphia - i guess that can be expected. I will definitely stay there again when I'm in town. You should too, you won't be disappointed."

Four Seasons Hotel Sydney

"rating=3 I stayed here for a week back in May 2006 with a large corporate group. The hotel was very nice. The hotel in general didn't seem like a U.S. Four Seasons that I have been at, but it was quite a nice hotel. The rooms were a bit small. Our room had a very nice view of Harbour Bridge and the Opera House which was nice. While we didn't dine at the hotel resaturants, we did have buffet type meals in the business meeting rooms and ball rooms which were nice. The location is a great one. It's right by the transportation hub- The Quay -- you can easily catch any bus or ferry or train anywhere you want to go -- it's right in walking distance. All in all, it was a very nice hotel. I have no complaints. Syndey is just such a great city. I hope to return back there one day!"

The Westin Charlotte

"rating=2 Well, I was waiting to write this review before I even got back home! I stayed at the Westin for 4 nights as part of a big convention at the Charlotte Convention Center. The hotel's location couldn't be any more convenient - it's right across the street. Location-wise for restaurants is just OK - there's nothing really that close other than a pizza joint and some other non-interesting type places. The room I had was fine -- internet was $9.95/day and since i was there on business and got back to my room late most nights, it was room service for me. Ching ching - a basic ceasar salad or burger and a bowl of soup came to $35 for dinner!! No joke. So much for Charlotte being an inexpensive city. Well, things were going OK - - until my last night when i was getting things ready to check out. I had to ship out a FedEx package and the lovely hotel desk clerk was of NO help to me and said that I couldn't ship out my package. Great business services. The Westin gets a F for that and I had a little talk with the hotel manager. All in all, if you want a great location to the Convention Center, you can't beat it....unless maybe the Hilton down the street can actually send your FedEx package for you !"

Holiday Inn Washington-Capitol

"rating=3 I have to say -- Trip Advisor does it again! I can't say enough about what a great site this is! After booking a great price on Priceline, i went to Trip Advisor to really see what I got! Sure enough - - the reviews were true -- great location - close to all the museums and Metro -- and even told me that a certain part of the hotel was noisy and to stay away from that part of the building. At check in, the hotel clerk knew exactly what I meant and put us on the other side of the building - we heard nothing. I would rate it - 3 stars- the hotel needs some updating, but it's clean and the Starbucks in the lobby is very convenient - especially in the cold winter months! I'd recommend it for a good price - don't pay too much or you'll be angry :)"

Crowne Plaza Palo Alto

"rating=5 I stayed here for two nites - Oct. 6th and 7th. I had a wonderful time! The hotel really is a great value- paid a little over $100 for this fab Palo Alto location. The service was excellent, the hotel decor, cleanliness, amenities were all great! I'd definitely stay here again. Maybe next time I'll have to take a jump in the pool - it looked so inviting from the view of my room."

San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront

"rating=4 Even though we checked into the hotel really late - (around 130am) - the front desk help was very nice and personable. We only stayed til the morning and then headed out to downtown, SF, but the room was quite nice. The bed was very comfty, the bathroom was clean and neat and the hotel staff was quite helpful - especially the special shuttle service dude. He gave us some great advice about the car rental location and we wound up taking a inexpensive cab instead of lugging all of our luggage all around the place. In all, I would say this was a great experience - I think on Priceline I paid $70/nite - well worth the effort. I'd stay here again, anytime."

Sail Cayman Ltd.

"rating=5 I don’t often leave reviews like this but I just had to leave a few words. After meeting Captain Bill at a local resort pool here on the Cayman Islands, it’s already making me want to come back!! We didn’t even take a tour with him yet! Bill’s personality is infectious and I only wish we had more time on the Island to take a tour with him. You can be sure, a tour with Sail Cayman is top on our list for our next visit. Just hanging at the pool with Bill was a hoot and I’m sure his fun personality and knowledge of the Island would make this tour the highlight of your trip."

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park

"rating=5 Don’t miss this stop! McWay falls is well worth the stop. What a gorgeous view. Just a short walk on a path and there you have it ... the money shot. Just incredible. And once you see the falls ... which are actually pretty far away and appear tiny.. is another gorgeous overlook. Just beautiful. Definitely don’t miss this !!"

Calgary Tower

"rating=3 Apparently everyone knew you had to make a reservation at the top. We didn’t and weren’t gonna pay like $20 each for a view to the top. If you dine at the restaurant you don’t have to pay that charge. So we just skipped it and looked around in the gift shop. We got the views from the mountaintops instead. No real loss here. It’s a tourist trap of course. We saw the Tower from the ground."

Maligne Canyon

"rating=5 Definitely worth the trip and checking out this Canyon. I saw the Canyon when water was running through it. It has to be pretty incredible to see when it’s all frozen and you get to walk through it. Nature is amazing !"

Glacier Skywalk

"rating=3 This Skywalk was part of the Glacier & Skywalk package. I purchased this through Viator tours, which was another disaster. Make sure you get a specific time for your tour when you buy your online ticket. If you don’t have a time like Viator didn’t give us when we booked through their app, you can pretty much say a prayer because you’re probably not gonna get to see the glacier. And now looking back, it really wasn’t that great. I think the coolest part was the architect or engineer that created /built the skywalk. The actual engineering of the skywalk was better than the utter insanity that goes on at the Discovery Center. This was the most stressful part of my vacation and quite frankly I saw much nicer scenery even right off the highway. And Viator Tours who sold us the tickets via their app still hasn’t gotten back to me with a resolution to my ticketing problem. This has been 5 days. Pretty pathetic service. I’d save the nearly $100/pp and do Something else."

The Walmart Museum

"rating=5 It's not often you get free admission to anything these days and this Museum is definitely worth your time. You could probably spend 15 minutes or over an hour here and learn so much. Sam Walton was a genius and the story of his empire is quite fascinating. There's lots of history and artifacts to see and you can even see just how he left his office when he passed in 1992. Visiting is well worth the trip, and it's free. You can't beat that. I'd try to do the tour when you go. I need to do that next time I'm in town because you learn a lot more that way!"

Princeton University

"rating=5 Such a gorgeous campus. Put on your comfy walking shoes and just take in the sights, and all the awesome things to do. From the art museum, to the gorgeous buildings to the amazing foodie-quality restaurants, or even the best gelato you've ever eaten, don't hesitate to visit this beautiful university. Below is a photo of the delicious gelato from The Bent Spoon. The other photo is was taken while walking through the campus."

Turtle Back Zoo Sign

"rating=4 Now that the weather is nice outside, what a great day for the zoo! Turtle Back Zoo is a great activity for the whole family. The property is full of cool exhibits and the walking layout is easy to follow. We spent 3 hours at the zoo and really enjoyed it. It's a small but mighty zoo and from the looks of it, the zoo is getting bigger every day. If you're looking for a nice way to spend the day with family or friends, here's the perfect place. Young or old, everyone likes the zoo. Plenty of seating around the zoo and there's always a bathroom in sight. Enjoy!"

Lower Antelope Canyon

"rating=5 Definitely make it here to see this incredible creation from Mother Nature. We took Dixie Ellis Tours of the Lower Canyon and will cherish these memories forever."

Horseshoe Bend

"rating=5 Another must see attraction in Page, AZ. After a short uphill walk and about 1/2 mile walk all downhill... you approach...Horseshoe Bend. Definitely worth the walk. I just wish I wasn't so chicken and kinda afraid of heights to get closer to the edge. We went during sunset and it was pretty cool seeing this masterpiece of nature. I'd definitely stop to see this if you're in the area."

Dixie Ellis’ Lower Antelope Canyon Tours

"rating=5 If you're touring the Southwest do not miss this incredible experience. We were lucky enough to visit during a bit of an off season and didn't have to book our tickets in advance or have long waits. Our tour guide was Kristie and she was very knowledgeable and friendly. She gave us a great tour with lots of history. I would NOT miss this tour! I have a feeling it's VERY hot during the Summer months ... deep in the Canyon so think about that before you go. We took my 91 yr old father and he had the time of his life. There are a few pretty serious staircase down into the Canyon and inside as well. Dad handled it like a champ! It was a miracle ! So glad we took him!! Kristie our guide is also an incredible photographer -- she's a whiz with an iPhone and took some great family photos for us that we will cherish forever. This tour is not to be missed. Just breathtaking. And if you're a photographer, this place should be top of your list. Everywhere you look is just another money shot."

Made In Jerome Pottery

"rating=5 Loved this awesome pottery store. They have beautiful hand made pottery from local artists. What a great place to get a one of a kind souvenir where you can really remember your trip. I purchased an adorable dragonfly mug made by the artist Jane herself who told me all about the pottery store and how it's all made in Jerome, AZ by locals. I'd definitely check this lovely store out and get yourself a signed piece of pottery, right from a local artisan. Very cool. I will cherish my purchase."

Nellie Bly Kaleidoscopes

"rating=5 Jerome was one of the highlights of our trips to the Southwest. Who knew this little ghost and gold mining town would have such amazing shops? I think I could have shopped at this store all day. There are so many awesome kaleidoscopes and funky, colorful glassware ... you should really check it out. The store was so busy it kinda gets hard to walk through it. I bought some great souvenirs here. Awesome store and the women that work there are fun, very helpful and really made me laugh!"

Taliesin West

"rating=4 We had a very nice tour and learned all about Taliesin West. I felt the price was very expensive and they basically have no discounts. Oh, you can save $2 of you buy your tickets online. So that's $34 for the 1 1/2 hr tour. Yes, the property is magnificent and they have an incredible gift shop. All in all it was great to visit the property and learn more about this incredible man."

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site

"rating=5 What a wonderful setting for a president's Summer home. Not only was it a gorgeous, Fall day out, but this hour-long tour was definitely worth it. We took the trip on a Wednesday afternoon and really learned a lot about our 26th president, his family and his beautiful Summer home property. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the home is very well maintained. Also on the property is a Museum that you should also visit. It's a small museum and you should not miss it as it's filled with some nice artifacts and history about the the president. It looks like you can also have a nice picnic on the grounds. There are some picnic tables and lots of space for the kids to run around. The drive to Sagamore Hill is very scenic and this time of year with the leaves changing is very pretty. Afterwards we drove a few minutes over to Cold Spring Harbor for a nice lunch! A great day!"

Parc Güell

"rating=5 You must put Park Guell on your "places to go list" when you are traveling in Barcelona. It's really beautiful - - and the overlook is exquisite! Gaudi was an incredible human being. Period."

Kona Surf Company

"rating=5 Best surf shop for great souvenirs of your vacation! Awesome T-shirts and Kona Surf Shop Logo wear - great for gifts too."

La Sagrada Familia

"rating=5 Probably the highlight of our trip to Barcelona. This magnificent architectural wonder is something that you MUST NOT MISS. I repeat, MUST NOT MISS. I had no idea what was inside this incredible Basillica, but until you go inside, you wont understand. Meanwhile the outside is amazing too. Make sure you take a good tour - - as there is so much to learn. Gaudi's stained glass miracle is just beyond words. If you do anything while you're in Barcelona, make sure you visit this masterpiece. Simply breathtaking!!! Oh and the view at the top is pretty cool too. You may as well check it out if you've gone this far! :) ENJOY!!!!"

FUNDACIÓ JOAN MIRÓ

"rating=5 If you love the arts, and you love Miro, definitely do not miss this attraction. Get close up to your favorite artists' work and learn things you never knew before. It's a gorgeous museum and worth spending 1-2 hours here. We took the self-guided tour. It was excellent. And I have to say, the gift shop was magnificent! :)"

Point Lobos

"rating=5 Such a gorgeous attraction. Dont miss visiting this State Reserve. It is beyond heavenly. Walk around, take nature in and enjoy! It's nature at its finest and it's FREE! Can't beat that."

Tour in Rome - Private tours in Rome - Sightseeing Tours

"rating=5 This is definitely a must see when traveling to Rome. I would recommend taking a tour and the skip the line tour was a miracle. I can't imagine waiting in lines all day, especially if your time is precious on vacation. Viator tours was so easy and they even have an app to make things super organized. Highly recommend their tours. We used them several times all across our European vacation. So back to the Colosseum - - dont miss it. The tour inside and outside the Colosseum was great and very informative. Wear the most comfy shoes you can because you will do more walking and climbing than you have ever done before! The Viator tours are also great because they give you headphones that you can hear your tour guide. With so many people - keeping them organized and together and heard is so important. So dont miss this incredible attraction. It's one of the best in the world. I would also recommend to go in April when we did. The weather was so nice - - around 65-70 degrees. I cannot imagine going during the Summer with so many tourist and 90+ degree heat. Eeeek!"

Piazza Venezia

"rating=5 Just a gorgeous vantage point with every view. This was a place we were to meet our tour guide prior to our Rome Pizza Tour. :) You could just stand here and take in all the views all day."

Terhune Orchards

"rating=5 We enjoyed a glorious day last weekend at the Peach Festival. What a gorgeous day and it was our first time visiting Terhune Orchards & Winery. With peach season in high gear, we ventured out to this special place in Princeton and had a great time. There was a fork to table tasting event with local restaurants, showing off their peach-fare - - was delicious. $5 admission to the festival and $12 for a wonderful tasting menu from the restaurants. One recipe was better than the next. The farm is great for kids too - - with pony rides and animals to see, lots to do for the kiddies too. There's even a great farm store with all the fresh produce and pies. It was way crowded during the festival - so I'm going to have to come back! Oh and the coolest part was that they had a gorgeous flower farm. You can get scissors from the store and pay $.25 per flower. Gorgeous to photograph too. I'll be back - you should go too!"

Bell Rock Access Trail

"rating=5 Great to hike, gorgeous to see. Definitely worth it and part of the landscape in Sedona! So nice!"

Cathedral Rock Trailhead

"rating=5 Definitely check it out -- it's a must see -- sunrise and sunsets!"

Sands Casino

"rating=3 It was worth the overnight from NJ to o to Emerils. I'm not a big gambler and the smoking at the casino was a HUGE turnoff. I decided not to gamble and save my money. I'd come back just to eat at Emerils and maybe do some outlet shopping."

Tours in Rome

"rating=5 My husband and I LOVED our Rome Pizza walking tour with Barbara as our guide. We both learned so much about all the different kinds of Pizza and got to sample such amazing treats in different neighborhoods. So not only was it a tasting tour, but we learned quite a bit about the area and history as well. Barbara was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were so lucky to have the tour all to ourselves on this special tour. I have to say that the pan pizza at Boccaccia was out of this world. I wish we could add a photo so you could see how delicious it looks. Don't even bother eating breakfast before you go! I'd leave room for the pizza that you won't be able to get at home. The only bad part about this tour is that your favorite pizza place, which you thought was great, is now just ordinary. There was also a stop at a 3 generation old cheese shop to learn about Bufala Mozzarella cheese vs regular mozzarella cheese. Don't hesitate ... just book this trip now!"

CaixaForum Barcelona

"rating=4 Very nice exhibit to see original drawings done by the Pixar illustrators. I was traveling from the USA and really enjoyed seeing this artwork in an international forum. Great exhibit space."
