Hotel Review: Park Hyatt Saigon

Arriving in Saigon on a flight from Singapore, I had arranged a hotel car to pick my husband and I up and take us to the Park Hyatt Saigon. The driver was one of the first guys I saw in the arrivals area, and he was holding up a sign with our names clearly written […]

Hotel Review: Park Hyatt Vienna Part I

Vienna is one of my favorite European cities. I was excited to try the Park Hyatt’s newest European hotel located right in the heart of Vienna, which celebrates the modern while embracing tradition.

Hotel Review: Park Hyatt Shanghai

Touching down at Pudong airport, I had already arranged for the Park Hyatt Shanghai’s car service to take me to the hotel. It was a bit expensive at 800 CNY, which is about 128 USD.  However, since I hadn’t been to the city before and knew I would be tired upon arrival it made sense […]

Hotel Review: Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome

The grey of wintertime had passed, and the cheerful blooms of Paris beckoned. My husband and I decided to bring along some family members for a holiday in Paris, so I reserved one regular Deluxe Room and one Park Suite at the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome. During the time of booking, this property was still a […]

You take the Narita Express from the airport, and as you speed along you struggle to keep your eyes open, while brightly colored signs and tall buildings flash by. This was exactly how my […]
