Learning to Relax: Round Hill, Jamaica

I am a city girl. When taking online quizzes like, “which country should you travel to next?” or “what’s your travel style?” I always end up with some sort of cosmopolitan destination. I love walking aimlessly through city streets, trying all the food, and- of course- people watching. Always on the go. But I’m learning how to relax. It’s a funny concept: learning to relax. Relaxing seems like something that should come naturally, an ability that we’re inherently born with like breathing. But for most people relaxing is hard! There are thousands of books, apps, workshops, and guided meditations yet still most people would say they struggle in this area. I had the opportunity to visit Round Hill Hotel and Villas, located in Montego Bay Jamaica, for three nights at the end of October. It’s not a big secret that a good travel companion is worth their weight in gold…

The Virgin Atlantic JFK Lounge

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting the Virgin Atlantic lounge at JFK airport- Terminal 4. The clubhouse is chic and futuristic like a 21st century Jetson's house with the grime of JFK a million miles away. The lounge offers many pleasantries to make the journey as comfortable as possible. Businessmen can catch-up on work at the workstations. Just getting off a long layover? Refresh with a shower! You can arrive to your destination in style with a chic cut or style at the Bumble and Bumble salon, or relax with a massage. The main sitting area is open with many different types of seating. The sofa is made from punching bags! There is also a sitting area with by the restaurant, where you can watch the planes take off and land. For those seeking some quiet time, another sitting area is available.  The restaurant and bar…
Last week, we were fortunate enough to visit the Knickerbocker Hotel, located in New York City. The Knickerbocker is a brand new hotel, situated on the southeastern corner of Times Square. It's important to note the location because once inside you are transported to another world; you would never guess that the hustle and bustle of Times Square is just a wall away. The transformation happens right at the door when you are greeted by the bellhops in old world attire. The rooms took the hotel to another level. I was especially impressed by the size. The average room is 435 sq feet; the average room in Times Square is 280 sq feet. How's that for space!? Rooms are modern and sleek, yet neutral as to not compete with the craziness of Times Square. The blackout shades and soundproof walls provide for an excellent sleep. Have you ever entered a…
My next stop on the NY Hotel tour was the Bryant Park Hotel. This 14-year old hotel is built inside a historical building located on the south side of Bryant Park. Entering the hotel, you are greeted by a red, leather lobby and the overflowing traffic from their bustling restaurant, Koi. Koi is an American/Japanese fusion restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Due to its' location, the Bryant Park hotel mainly caters to corporate travelers in the fashion and entertainment field, but has a fantastic leisure business over the weekend. While the hotel is not non-family friendly, it caters to mostly an adult crowd. There are 128 guest rooms, 8 of which have two double beds. Rooms are minimalist and very clean! All of the rooms are generous in size; even the smallest room (the Superior Suite) is 300sq ft. I was especially impressed by the huge bathrooms with…

Hotel Visits in NYC- Day 1

I love a beautiful hotel! And New York City is full of them. Travel agents take site tours to see the property so that we can match our clients with the best hotel to fit their needs. It's really difficult to tell exactly what a hotel looks and feels like from photos. Last Sunday, a group that I am a part of, The Young Travel Professionals (YTP) took a tour of several SoHo hotels.   The Broome Hotel Who: The Broome is great for New Yorkers looking for a staycation or couples that would like a lot of privacy. There is no bar (they are still getting their liquor license,) so it is difficult to meet people. Couples are welcome to bring their own wine and enjoy in the courtyard. Starting Pricepoint: $379/nt   We began our day at The Broome Hotel with breakfast in the courtyard. Started by restaurateur turned hotelier,…
