Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner: Your Ultimate DC Family Hotel

Sunday, October 8, 2017

I have a list of hotels that I rely on for a certain feel - an appeal that only they can provide, or their so-called niche. They bring something to the table in my favorite destinations that no one else can give me. Whether it’s an international destination or here at home, I have my "go-to hotel.” Be it NYC, Paris, London, Tokyo, LA, or even New England in the fall, I know where I am going to feel completely taken care of and relaxed.

When looking for suitable accommodations for a family of four, the requirements can start stacking up, and it can become difficult to find something that is a perfect fit. Thankfully, on our last trip to Kuala Lumpur, this wasn’t the case due to Ambassador Row by Lanson Place. This amazing property checked off all of our boxes.

This is not an easy feat; we usually find ourselves compromising on quite a few of these during our travels, so to have a hotel that could take care of all our needs as a family was fantastic!

Here are the five hard lessons I have learned about being here and how I am coping with them.

Furama Bukit Bintang - The Perfect Family Hotel In KL

Thursday, October 5, 2017
Heather

Our family has now been traveling the world for over a year now, and with two kids in tow I am always looking for kid friendly accommodations. Not just family friendly but kid friendly. I know to most you wouldn’t understand the difference here, but there is a big difference between allowing kids and families and providing amenities to make kids feel more welcome. I want my kids to have a  great time when we head to new destinations, I want it to be memorable for them and if this can start with the hotel we stay at then it’s even better.

Meteora - Greece’s Hidden Must See Gem

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Breathtaking… there are many beautiful places and destinations in this world, but few literally take your breath away like Meteora. When speaking to others about taking our family to Greece, most raved about the obvious places like the islands of Santorini and Mykonos. However, Greece holds a hidden gem even more beautiful than what can be found on those islands, and to plan a trip to Greece without including Meteora would be a definite loss.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
