What to Eat and Avoid at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts

Our long weekend at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts wasn’t expensive in terms of getting or staying there thanks to airline miles and hotel points, but our time on the ground was a somewhat different story as activities and food on St. Kitts can add up quickly. On the plus side, much of what we ate was enjoyable, though there were a few misses along the way that I’ll share so you can focus your money and calories where it is…

Checking Out the Park Hyatt St. Kitts Beach

If you are thinking about heading to a beachfront resort, one of the obvious questions on your mind is probably how good is the beach. I’ve stayed at resorts with absolutely perfect beachfront locations and others that may have been located just feet from the water, but it was water you wouldn’t really get in because or rocks, waves, tides, and more. The Park Hyatt St. Kitts is a beautiful beachfront resort and I’m happy to say that you can…

Using SPG Points at the SLS Las Vegas Hotel

Las Vegas is an interesting hotel market as there are well over 100,000 hotel rooms in the area and rates can get incredibly low at just $39+ for some rooms…generally plus resort fees, but that’s a whine for another time.

10 Tips to Enjoy ICE at the Gaylord Resorts

The crown jewel of the Gaylord Resort’s holiday experience is their holiday-themed ICE exhibit that is kept at finger-numbing 9 degrees and features two million pounds of themed hand-carved ice sculptures, ice slides, and also houses approximately three million people at any given time. Kidding, of course, there are only two million people. Seriously though, ICE is a very popular attraction that is quite crowded and sells out during peak times. Enjoying the Gaylord ICE Experience to the fullest takes a bit of strategy, so after going earlier this season…

Review of the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort

Of all the places we have ever been, my favorite destination is still Hawaii, so when I recently had the chance to head there, even for just a night, I was all-in. This particular night was spent in Waikiki, which may not be my #1 spot in all of Hawaii, but I found plenty of great things to do and eat in the Waikiki area during my 24 hours in paradise. One of the harder decisions for this one night…
