Colorado

Earlier this year, we were lucky enough to visit Colorado and stay at the beautiful Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villas. A little back story to this is that we were supposed to stay here for a week-long snowboarding trip the previous season. My friend had a timeshare at the Sheraton and planned a trip for all of us. Unfortunately, this same friend also bought a motorcycle for himself the same year. He took it out on

Everyone seriously needs to stay at one of these tiny homes at Escalante Escapes. It's located in Escalante, Utah and is right outside Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Out of all the places we've been, we were surprised to find such luxurious accommodations in a very small town. I mean this is a type of town where we had Subway and breakfast sandwiches from a gas station for our meals. It was going to be

Today we're going to explore another Chase Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection property : Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas. So, let's begin by saying that this trip wasn't even suppose to happen. One day I was looking at my Southwest Airlines account and noticed that there was $111 of unused Southwest credit. I haven't been flying like I used to and I must have forgotten all about it. The credit was due to expire

Oregon

On our last Oregon trip, we decided to stay at The Nines Hotel in Portland using our Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts benefit. I know of The Nines Hotel because of a previous trip I took years ago when it was still part of SPG. Today, the Nines Hotel is under the Marriott brand and is part of the Luxury Collection Hotel sub-brand. I haven't been to this hotel in probably five years so I

I know I've been posting a lot about Oregon lately so today I'm going to change it up and talk about our recent visit to the Park MGM Las Vegas using the Chase Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection (LHRC). You might have seen one of my earlier blog posts where we stayed at the Encore Hotel Las Vegas using Amex's Fine Hotels and Resort Program. Well, the Chase LHRC is almost exactly like that. We

Harriman Springs Resort and Marina is an incredible place to stay if you are looking for accommodations around Crater Lake. Granted, it's an hour away from the park, but the resort ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. Crater Lake only has two hotels: Crater Lake Lodge and Mazama Village Campground & Cabins. I've heard that these two places get booked out months in advance and it was true for us. Both

Las Vegas

I’m excited today to share my experience using the Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts Program for the Encore Hotel in Las Vegas. If you happen to have read my previous blog post, you would know that we stayed at the Venetian Hotel on Friday and Saturday night. We actually weren’t planning on staying Sunday night except our flight got cancelled so we opted to fly out the next day for a nice $200 flight credit

Las Vegas

The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas currently has a special offer for essential workers where they are giving away a complimentary night with a minimum 2-night stay. In other words, buy one night and get one free. There are actually two essential workers in my immediate group of friends and they thought it would be nice to do a small relaxing Vegas trip. They booked for Friday night and ended up getting Saturday night for
