Fairmont San Francisco Bombay Suite – San Francisco, California

We had a layover in San Francisco, which was strategically planned such that we can work in an overnight at this beautiful hotel, and book an afternoon tea at their location. The location is quite convenient from BART, which brought us in from the airport. It is a short hike to the hotel, but it is uphill all the way.
We got checked into a suite, as requested - and we got their Bombay Suite which was a beautiful suite with a balcony that has a wonderful view.
Once you walk in the door, you're in the living space, with a desk on the left with fresh ice in the ice bucket.
The living space is pretty spacious and under the TV has the stocked minibar, with complimentary tea and coffee. There's a balcony that opens up off this room and we spent most of our night out there with their patio furniture enjoying our view.
In a separate room offers the bed and bathroom. We did upgrade to a room with a King bed, and once they switched us to a suite... the king bed was gone, which was too bad. I think the suite would be better with a larger bed. Regardless, the bed was very comfortable and the sheet set was as well!
The bathroom was quite standard, it didn't have the wow factor, but yet we don't spend the same amount of time in this room. It's practical and functional, so that's all that really matters. There are 2 Fairmont robes behind the door that we were able to use during our stay. We definitely took advantage of it too!
Overall, our stay was quite enjoyable, and it was our pleasure to experience this hotel. One of the most memorable part of this stay was their turn down service - they tucked in my stuffed animal and placed a post card of the hotel in the suite. Although I already purchased a post card, this one is definitely staying in my collection!

Mandalay Bay – Las Vegas, Nevada

I've always loved going to Las Vegas especially experiencing new hotels. This time, I found myself checked in at Mandalay Bay, and the hotel is beautiful. The resort is absolutely beautiful but I wished the staff was friendlier as i had an incident with them, and they didn't seem to value my experience.
The room was very nice and spacious. The bed was a king size bed and really comfortable. It was a great hotel to lounge at after a long day in Vegas!
The room offered only a bit of storage area, but had lots of space in general and seating area. It's a lovely room with a stocked mini bar.
The bathroom was very impressive, it was large, tiled, and offered a separate toilet area. There's a double sink, a stand up shower and a soaker tub.
This bathoom even has a TV in the room so you won't miss anything on TV when you're winding down in the tub.
Overall, the experience was quite pleasurable. We enjoyed the beautiful lobby, the pool area looks nice - although it was not opened during my stay. The complimentary flavoured water in the lobby was really a nice touch as well.

The Venetian – Las Vegas, Nevada

While we were visiting Las Vegas, staying at The Venetian, I'm not sure how we got so lucky... but we got upgraded to Prima Suite which was amazing!
This room has the doors opening into a foyer area, which was marble and amazing. Truly a sense of wealth and luxury!
Just off the foyer is a half bath, very nice and luxurious.
The main part of the suite is a sitting area, with a TV and large table for eating or entertaining!
This awesome space even comes with a full bar, although ours was not stocked, it was an amazing space.
Off the main area was the actual room with it's own ensuite bathroom. The room was large and spacious, the bed was tall, plush and comfortable. We didn't want to get out of bed the following morning, it was that amazing!
Just off the sleeping area is a closet with a vanity table.. and we love this space. They provide us with tons of amenities and it was quite nice as we were running low on our supplies.
The bathroom was amazing, with his and her sinks, a jacuzzi tub, a large 2-person shower... this bathroom defines luxury! The shower was wonderful with 2 shower heads, tile entirely, it was just beautiful.
Although we didn't have a chance to relax in the Jacuzzi tub, I certainly wish we could have. we really enjoy soaking the day away in evenings, but we came to the hotel quite late this evening - and just curled in bed.
This stay has been my most memorable stay, and we have been to Las Vegas for a very long time. Since this hotel has opened, this was the hotel I wanted to stay at. This once in a lifetime opportunity was definitely worth it! Be sure to watch the room walk through clip to see this amazing suite!
