Guest Suites

Over the past year or so (probably two), I have had the luxury of being able to travel to some fun places, and stay in some pretty nice hotels. I wanted to share some of those luxurious places with you, and then pose a few related questions.

The first trip P and I ever went on was a road trip to Boston for a Mariners game (don't forget, I'm a Seattle girl) and a one-night stay at Le Meridien Hotel in Cambridge. The location was great, as was the room.

Clockwise from top left: Exterior facade, bathroom, guest suite, lobby sitting area.

A few months later, I went to Nashville for work. We stayed at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville. It had a modern, yet traditional, feel and was quite comfortable.

Clockwise from top left: lobby, guest suite, guest suite looking at view, bathroom.

After these couple of trips, we took a break from hotels and decided to camp, which we love. But the next hotel we stayed in was in Montreal over this past New Year's. We stayed in the ultra modern Hotel ZERO 1.
Clockwise from left: Lobby, bathroom, closet & mini bar area, sitting area, guest suite.

We also had a good friend share her visit to Arkansas for this post. She loved the Capital Hotel in Little Rock, and it wasn't just because of the toffe they left on her pillows.

Clockwise from left: Guest suite, high ceilings in lobby durring holidays, bathroom, toffees, view down into lobby sitting area.

What do you look for when you are choosing a hotel? Do you enjoy the comfort of the spaces and the beds, or are you more concerned with price? Do you appreciate the design details in the lobby and the rooms, pick up on the lighting details, etc.? Or is that just a weird designer thing? What is your favorite thing about a hotel getaway?

However you enjoy it, happy vacationing!

  1. Gosh, I can't even remember the last time I got to choose the hotel. All of my travel has been at the League's whim except when we go to the beach house. I like something comfortable and pretty...
