Review: InterContinental Hong Kong

The Trip of AA Lifetime (Asia, Australia, Middle East) – Introduction I was scheduled to be in Hong Kong three days and two nights and I decided to split my nights between two IHG hotels – the first one being the InterContinental Hong Kong.

W Hollywood

24+ Hours in Los Angeles – Introduction We were only really staying one night in Los Angeles and therefore I decided to book the W Hollywood, an SPG hotel. The drive from the airport took about fifty minutes and the car rental was super cheap at just ~$20 USD through a promotional rate they had. The plan was to walk around Hollywood and the surrounding… Read More

Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek

Glamorous Dubai – Introduction I redeemed 70k Club Carlson points for the last night in Dubai, at the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek, which is located just ten minutes away from the airport.

The Radisson Blu Residence Dubai Marina

The May Fair London

10 Days – England, Scotland, and Iceland – Introduction For the remaining two nights in London, I also redeemed 70k Club Carlson points total (and got the second night free). I think that the most luxurious hotel (or apparently as some people put it) that you can redeem Club Carlson points for in London is the May Fair Hotel. It is described as a luxurious five… Read More

Plaza on the River London

10 Days – England, Scotland, and Iceland – Introduction For the first two nights in London, I redeemed 70k Club Carlson points total for the Plaza on the River hotel. The hotel is supposed to be more ‘fancy’ since it cost 70k points instead of 50k (which is what most of the other hotels cost). Since I hold the Club Carlson VISA Credit Card, I… Read More
