Stay in luxury at the Four Seasons Toronto

Last month I was whisked away to the Four Seasons Toronto by P&G as part of their P&G Moms Ambassador program. I have never been to this new hotel before, and it is absolutely beautiful. From the moment we pulled into the entrance of the hotel there were staff ready and willing to help us by parking the car, holding the doors, taking our luggage, etc. As a Mom who takes care of a family all of the time, it was really nice to have someone taking care of me like that! The lobby and hallways of The Four...

Watch a game in comfort at the Renaissance Toronto

Last month I attended the She’s Connected Conference in Toronto, and had the pleasure of staying in the Renaissance Toronto Downtown Hotel. Located at the Roger’s Center and overlooked by the CN Tower, the Renaissance would be the perfect spot for tourists who don’t often get to experience these things.

The really unique thing about the Renaissance Toronto Downtown is the view from many of the rooms…rather than a window...

Relax at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort

My son and I had the privilege of visiting the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort on our recent trip to California.

At the resort, there were video games that my son enjoyed, and a ping pong table where he played for the first time. The pool was his favourite spot at the resort though, and we spent a lot of time there. There is a...

The Westin Los Angeles Airport

I am currently enjoying the good life at The Westin Los Angeles Airport. This is a beautiful hotel near LAX, that boasts well kept rooms with very comfortable beds and a few of the airport (not a bonus for everyone, but it certainly made Kellen happy). The shuttle from LAX to The Westin (and vice versa) comes every twenty minutes.  The hotel has an outdoor pool and hot tub on the third floor, and a main floor restaurant called The Daily Grill that you can eat in or order room service from. The hotel staff have been extremely pleasant...
