Times Square, NYC
Proudly standing between Franklin and North Moore Streets, the quaint Greenwich Hotel makes itself distinctive from the rest of the Big Apple accommodations by ensuring that its contemporary amenities perfectly blend with its exceptional interiors. From the Italian Carrara marble that tile your bathroom floor to the Swedish Duxiana beds where you lay your tired body in, it’s apparent how every bit of this hotel is a pleasant surprise to its guests.
Learn more about this NYC hotel in a review provided by the prominent travel site, Frommers.
Built from the ground up, the Greenwich Hotel, like the Bowery Hotel, is a combination of modern meets rustic in design. The building was crafted with handmade bricks, reclaimed wood, and furniture from antique stores and flea markets throughout the world. The uniqueness does not automatically make a great hotel. First and foremost for are comfort and service, and the Greenwich provides both. The rooms are airy and quiet; some have Hudson River views. The hotel has a Japanese-inspired spa, including a pool surrounded by a 250-year-old Japanese farmhouse assembled without using a single nail. You might find the location a bit too far away from the heart of the city, but maybe in this case, that's the point.
So get started with your next travel to NYC as early as now!
St. Charles Avenue on Jackson Square
One factor that you might consider when booking a hotel is the peace and quiet that it brings you when the night comes, and while such personal accommodation criterion can be found at New Orleans’ Uptown area or in serene neighborhoods like Mid-City and Marigny, a similar tranquility and most importantly accessibility are also provided by the Jackson Square-based Place d’Armes.
If another hotel requirement you take into account is the room rate, then you’ll be delighted by the fact that the elegant Place d’Armes Hotel is reasonably priced – considering that it is the only hotel found right at the center of the historical French Quarter.
For as low $60, you could already get yourself a decent room in a hotel that is excellently accessible to other travel attractions like the famed Bourbon Street as well as the interesting antique stores on Royal Street.
The Place d’Armes Hotel’s website further describes it as:
Beautifully restored 18th and 19th century buildings surround the lush tropical courtyards and sparkling swimming pool. Relax under the magnolias or stroll just a block to Cafe du Monde for beignets and cafe au lait. This French Quarter Hotel offers New Orleans charm at its best at the best location in the Quarter… The French Quarter remains the most exciting neighborhood in the world. All that's missing is YOU.
On the whole, you really can’t think of enough excuses to stop you from booking a room at Place d’Armes given its affordability, location and accessibility.
So get started with your next trip to New Orleans as soon as possible!
Before I answer that question, let me say that I love my iPhone and my MacBook Air. Everyday I am thrilled to find a new use, a new widget, a new app, a new feature that makes my life easier and more fun. I never take for granted how incredible this technology is and I can't wait to see what the future holds.
That being said - I am very, very minimalist when it comes to technology and travelling. Maybe it's because I did for so long without a laptop or SmartPhone. Or maybe because part of me feels like these things can be more of a distraction than an aid.
Another reason is that I don't want to risk my equipment getting stolen or broken while travelling. Plus a small map is much easier to carry around than a laptop.
Perhaps the main reason is that I feel like I get a more authentic, visceral experience - it's just me and my wits, figuring out how to ride the subway or get to my hotel. For me, travelling is about being in the moment - not online.
"I travel to experience the new. I travel to observe and take in what the world has to offer. No doubt technology can help add to my perspective and improve my travels, but are these benefits enough to outweigh the distraction and inconvenience that modern technology can cause?
Do I really want to become reliant on a laptop that might break in the middle of nowhere and cause me to spend my travel funds and search for a replacement?"
What do you think? Do you travel with technology? How does it help you? Or do you leave it all behind? Why?
