The Andaz experience begins the moment you arrive through the bronze-coloured doors of our midtown Manhattan hotel and greeted by an Andaz Host. Have a drink in the bar downstairs while checking in via iPads. The whole experience feels very boutique, plus the welcome drink is a blessing and helps to pass the time while the process takes place. A really nice touch. Rooms are large loft-style rooms, spacious by Manhattan standards and minimalist in design with a great bed. Rooms are between 322 and 404 square feet but the high ceilings make them feel larger. Ask for a room as high up as possible as there is some minor street noise in the lower level rooms.

There are also 47 spacious suites offer private balconies or landscaped terraces. … [Read more...] about Best Hyatt New York: Park Vs Grand Vs Andaz Vs Centric

Mid-flight, the Boeing 767-400ER encountered some severe turbulence. I still remember the screams of other passengers (including flight attendants strapped in their seats behind me), the freakingly abrupt plane movements (it did feel like sudden drops of several tens of feet), the crackling and never-heard-before sounds of the aircraft’s interior, the brief interruptions of the inflight entertainment program, the frequently changing tones of the aircraft’s engines during the event, and the terrifying looks in everyone’s eyes. It was horrible, absolutely horrible. It lasted for only 20 minutes, but it felt like hours, and it completely changed the way I feel on a plane. … [Read more...] about Tips to overcome your fear of flying
