Le Parchamp, a Tribute Portolio Hotel, Boulogne-Billancourt (Paris, France): Fine efforts but a few youthful errors

After a rather long itinerary from Boston, I arrived in Paris for my business event. As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed: Booking I booked this property about 45 days before my arrival. That week, Paris hotel prices were extremely high,...

Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Oslo: aged, but we like the view and the location

The Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Oslo is the epitome of the typical Scandinavian hotel: nice and warm in some ways, but with a frugal, old-fashioned feel that stings a little. But we like it for the view, the location...

Matild Palace Budapest, a Luxury Collection Hotel: Another excellent stay

After a few days in my wife's hometown and a slightly delayed train journey from Debrecen, we spent a few days in the Hungarian capital before heading back to Boston. As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed: Booking I booked this...

JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay: really excellent and superb storytelling

The JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay offers a very high standard of service for a resort. But more than that, it takes the customer into a world with such perfect storytelling that it makes you want to believe...

The recently opened JW Marriott Hanoi offers a really high standard of service, and the fact that it's a little out of the way should in no way obscure the fact that it's one of the city's best hotels. Staying...

The Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey: What a shame!

C’est après un trajet retardé depuis Las Vegas que j’arrive enfin à l’aéroport de Los Angeles. Après quelques difficultés pour obtenir un Uber qui m’amènera au Ritz-Carlton, j’arrive enfin à l’hôtel. As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed: Booking I proceeded...

Renaissance Riverside Saigon: nice but a bit old-fashioned

Conveniently located by the river, the Renaissance Saigon offers quality services but is beginning to look its age. To choose my hotel in Saigon, I proceeded by a process of elimination. Having already stayed at the Méridien Saigon (modern and...

The ENGLiSH Hotel, Las Vegas, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel : Only the location is sub-optimal

After a bus ride of about thirty minutes, I finally arrived at the ENGLiSH Hotel. As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed: Booking I proceeded to the reservation of this property a few weeks before my arrival in Las Vegas. I...
