Hotel Review: Hilton Grand Vacations Suites On The Las Vegas Strip.

The Hilton Grand Vacations Suites on the Las Vegas Strip is a great hotel if you're not actually looking for a hotel that is "on the strip." Though technically, it's located on Las Vegas Blvd., it's located on the far north end of the strip and not near anything worth walking to. This hotel is ...

Hotel Review: Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Mission Valley, San Diego.


The Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Mission Valley is a hidden gem! I really enjoyed our stay here. It's located in Mission Valley and at first, I confused it with the OTHER Double Tree on Hotel Circle but they are two different hotels. I say it's a hidden gem because it really is hidden. ...

Great Hotel - Hilton Copenhagen Airport - A review

I was a guest at the Hilton Stockholm Slussen last weekend and I have to say I was very impressed with this hotel. This Hilton was once a Scandic hotel, back in the early 2000’s Hilton owned the Scandic brand and they converted many of the better Scandic hotels to the Hilton brand before ...
