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. The higher rooms have a superb view and a window seat so that you feel like you are sitting in your very own loft apartment. 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

“We set these departure times for mainly two reasons. The first one is ensure that once the curfew expires we are at the top of the queue for runway departure. The second is to help the flow into and out of the alley for the gates – it’s already tightly shared space. If all aircraft were set to push back at the same time, it wouldn’t work out very well.” … [Read more...] about Why Is American The First Airline To Fly Out Of New York?
afternoon tea at the gorgeous Oscar Wilde lounge earlier in the year. But it was last year in July (when our Oscar was just a twinkle in the eye) that I first tried the restaurant Laurent.

While this is not one of the best luxury hotels in Santa Barbara, it offers exceptional value and gives you access to those same fantastic beaches. Relax poolside, or step out onto one of Southern California’s most beautiful beaches and take it all in. … [Read more...] about Best Hyatt Centric Hotels In The World
Shame the same can’t be said for the street level eatery that serves as the hotel’s breakfast offering – better to hold off, jump in a cab and head towards the Lower West Side for brunch. In Pilsen, Vietnamese powerhouse HaiSous, a location in Richard Gere’s 1996 film Primal Fear, serves up an array of dishes that will have you booking flights to Hanoi before the bill arrives. I recommend ordering a mix, with personal favourites including Bo Nuong Trung Op La (grilled ribeye, fried egg, steamed rice) or Canh Ga Chien, the best fried chicken wings with crispy garlic and steamed rice you’ll ever eat. While you’re in the area stop off at Moody Tongue brewery for beers created with a chef’s mindset, and layers of flavours. Join a guided tour and try the 12-layer signature chocolate cake created by pastry chef Shannon Morrison. … [Read more...] about Chicago, explore the city’s diverse culinary landscape
