Hotel Review: The Claridge Hotel (Atlantic City, NJ)

Originally opened in 1930, the historic Claridge Hotel stands out from many of the other resorts on Atlantic City’s main strip, as it is one of a few stand-alone hotels near the boardwalk.  While most people heading to Atlantic City will first look to book a room in one of the many casino resorts, the Claridge Hotel acts as a viable option ...

Hotel Review: Providence Biltmore Hotel (Rhode Island)

Located in the heart of downtown Providence, the Biltmore is conveniently location in close proximity to City Hall, the Rhode Island Convention Center, various museums, Brown University, and plenty of dining options.  After a long ride on the bus from NYC, it was nice to see that our drop-off location was only a block away ...

Hotel Review: Tower House Suites, Panama City (Panama)

“Pleasant surprise!” I must admit that based on previous reviews and photos available, I wasn’t really expecting much, but I had found a pretty good price for a two night stay. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the room I was provided with was much different than the rooms I’d seen in other photos (that ...
