Honeymoon Hotel 5 Review: Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong & Food Extravaganza!

HIGHLIGHTS: Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong Yes, this is a Hyatt. We needed to stay in North Point to be close to family, and I wanted to find something we could stay a while. This new Hyatt Centric looked appealing, especially combining it with promos I found on From a base rate of $107 per night, I found a $50 of $200 code, to be just $185 after tax for two nights! Highlights include the clean, efficient room, interesting bathroom layout, good hotel restaurant, and tea! The hotel is located atop a mall, and having a tea...

Honeymoon Hotel 4 Review: Conrad Hong Kong

HIGHLIGHTS: Conrad Hong Kong The Conrad Hong Kong treated us to an oversized suite, with plenty of welcome and congratulatory snacks & champagne. I especially enjoyed the swath of offerings at breakfast, and the delicious fried tofu soup. It was a bit difficult to get to, and the redirect to exec lounge wasn’t ideal, but overall this was a fantastic stay for my Hilton Aspire / Ascend free night certificates. I would stay here again, hopefully when the unrest is better.   My standard hotel reviews include a breakdown by the following topics. Feel free to skip to whichever...

Honeymoon Hotel 2 Review: Yokohama Bay Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Japan + Osaka Station Eating!

HIGHLIGHTS: Yokohama Bay Sheraton Hotel & Towers This one was a quick stay – highlights include the decent breakfast spread, nice executive lounge for guests, and large upgraded room they provided us for our honeymoon. Unfortunately, we arrived at Yokohama late, since we spent several hours on the way back north in Japan at Osaka Station – eating so very much. I would highly recommend that people stop and enjoy the cuisine and variety at many of the shinkansen stops throughout Japan.   My standard hotel reviews include a breakdown by the following topics. Feel free to skip to...

Honeymoon Hotel 1 Review: Conrad Tokyo, Japan

HIGHLIGHTS: Conrad Tokyo, Japan Our first hotel of the honeymoon! We stayed at the Conrad Tokyo on a Free Night Certificate on my Aspire, and had a fantastic time. Highlights include a beautiful upgraded room, and an amazing breakfast. It’s a bit out of the way and not close to much, but within walking distance to a metro line with which to explore Tokyo. I would highly recommend this experience, at least once. It was my first time at a Conrad (of three this honeymoon) and a blast.   My standard hotel reviews include a breakdown by the following...

Food & Hotel Review (Finally): Wynn Las Vegas

HIGHLIGHTS: Wynn Las Vegas I am so, so thrilled to finally write a review of the Wynn Las Vegas. On my previous stay (free one from the Wynn Slots app) I was only in for one night and did not get to fully use the facilities. This time, on a business stay, I got to really explore and enjoy myself. I found the Asian cuisine at Wazuzu and Red8 above expectations, and definitely solid places that I could even see taking my parents. Wynn had a sufficient number of advantage play games, and high-rollers betting thousands of dollars at...
