A Room with a View

View from a corner room at The Bowery, NY
I stayed in a hotel room once where the view from the window was a brick wall and an alley with a dumpster.  I tried to put a positive spin on it and call it "city-rustic" but it was still a bummer.

If the view from your room is as important to you as the room itself, I've found a new website just for you:  Room77.com.  It'll show you the exact floor plan of your hotel and some of the actual views from each specific room so you'll know exactly what to ask for.  It'll also help you avoid noisy elevators...and ice machines....and swimming pools filled with screaming kids...

..but I'm not high maintenance...really.

About Me

My photo
I didn’t dip my toe in an ocean until I turned 25 and my friend Sandy and I traveled to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. After that week, I was hooked. I loved being somewhere new; smelling the smells, tasting new food, seeing how other people lived. It energized me. As luck would have it, I landed a job that allowed me to travel all over the US and often to Canada. Being a sports event television producer, I was on the road all the time. That's when my love affair with travel began. Now, its 20 years later and still no one gets more “geeked up” about planning a vacation than I do. All I need is a destination and some travel companions and my fire is lit! I start delving into my favorite hotel sites, sifting through photos and reviews, comparing, contrasting -it’s like an addiction. The travel shows with tips and trends? I study them like a playbook. I LOVE doing the things most people hate doing before they go on vacation. Whether it be searching for a food tasting tour with a local or discovering a romantic B&B in the middle of New York - I’ve found it and I’ll share it with you. So....where should we go?
