Marlin Apartments: Your Home Away From Home In London

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Planning a trip to London can be both exciting and completely overwhelming. Where do you go? What will you see? But more importantly, where will you stay? The most obvious choice might be to find a hotel near attractions; you might be surprised to find out, though; that it isn’t your only option.

We travel to new places to see attractions, meet interesting people, and have experiences that haven’t been done before. When staying at a hotel, you really only meet other guests that are just like you. I believe living like a local gives you a real view of the city you are in and everything it holds for you. My recent stay with Marlin Apartments in London gave me the ultimate experience of local life, food, and culture.

The Red Rock Casino & Resort - Everything You Need Under One Roof

When staying in Vegas most travelers only think about “on strip” lodging, but it’s a huge mistake to limit yourself. There are probably more options than you realize “off strip” and there are some truly amazing resorts; case in point is The Red Rock Casino & Resort. Not only does The Red Rock Casino & Resort have so much more to offer you, but you also can skip all the other tourists and crowds. I have found that with most places you travel to, the locals know best, and Vegas and The Red Rock Casino & Resort is no exception as it’s where the locals come to play. For me the keyword is “Resort”, which for me means more amenities and more fun. After the holiday craziness I know I could definitely use some amenities and fun - how about you?

I love hotels with a theme, a niche, that something extra special. I’m a sucker for “cute” or “unique”, but I like it done in a classy way. I don’t want cheesy Disneyland theming; I can get that directly from Disney. I want something I can be proud of showing off to my friends and sharing the uniqueness with them. It’s not easy though to find a hotel that meets those standards. That’s why I was floored when I came across the Library Hotel Collection.

I’ve heard the saying since I was a child; it’s all in the details. Until I became an adult I didn’t truly understand what that meantand until my recent stay at The Langham Place Hotel in NYC I hadn’t seen it put to action so well. When staying at a five-star hotel you get accustomed to the perks and know what to expect, so when you go to another five star hotel and they surpass those perks and expectations I am impressedLangham Place NYC did just that.

Holiday Inn Lincoln-Downtown: Everything You Could Need for a Stay in Lincoln!

We recently headed to Lincoln Nebraska and I floored at how much I loved this fantastic little city! You never realize how many amazing cities there are until you start exploring a little further. You also never realize how many great hotels there are until you do a little exploring with that as well. While in Lincoln we decided to stay at The Holiday Inn Lincoln-Downtown. Not only was this a great hotel, but it was within walking distance of everything. It was only a short walk to great restaurants, shops, and a movie theater.

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!
