And yet, as fate would have it, I somehow found myself in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It is probably the last place I would have chosen to take a break, but I had the time of my life. (Cross my heart!)

I’ve traveled to many parts of the country over my short time here on earth but have never been to a place quite like National Harbor, Maryland. I equate this part of the DMV area (DC, Maryland, Virginia) to a hidden bonus level in a video game you really like as you may be unaware of its existence at first but are thrilled to find all the gems that exist once you are there.

Hotel Elysee continues to be one of Midtown East’s most incredible spots to stay in.

The Upper West Side happens to be my favorite part of New York City. It’s an area that has a classic yet modern vibe to it, which can be seen throughout its streets and subway systems. A superb location that echoes the same sentiment is Hotel Belleclaire, which is an institution on the UWS worth checking into and then some.
