Delta Hotels by Marriott Kananaskis Lodge

Friday, February 24th, 2017

I have now been the Kananaskis Lodge twice now and both experiences were quite different. We really enjoy going during our anniversary as it’s shoulder season, yet the road conditions are still good enough. This resort is always picture perfect, so we love taking photos of it to match some local postcards. The room was […]

New York-New York Hotel and Casino – Las Vegas, Nevada

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

We had the opportunity to go to Vegas for a few days, and from there we did some hotel hopping to experience more! Our first stop was New York – New York located right on the strip, towards the end (closer to the airport). I must admit, the hotel is much nicer than expected! We […]

Super 8 – Salmon Arm, British Columbia

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

During one of our driving trips to British Columbia, we wanted a quick sleep, so we stopped at Super 8 at Salmon Arm which is just off of the highway in a convenient location. Although the hotel is just off the highway and a railway going behind it, it wasn’t as noisy as expected. The […]

Fairmont Hotel Vancouver – British Columbia

Monday, April 6th, 2015

During our road trip to Vancouver, we decided to stay at the Castle in the City, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and what a glorious stay it was! Although the hotel was undergoing some major renovations, it was still quite nice. The lobby wasn’t done yet, and one of the main reasons for our trip was the […]

Fairmont Palliser: Fairmont Gold Room – Calgary, Alberta

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

I’ve been really fortunate with the people I meet, the place I go, and the things that happen during all my visits anywhere. This particular visit to Fairmont Palliser in downtown Calgary was truly one of my most memorable stays ever! I got to experience their “Hotel within a Hotel” with Fairmont Gold. We got […]

Fairmont Hotel Macdonald – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, December 29th, 2014

I love historic hotels and Fairmont has a bunch of them that are spectacular! We got to stay overnight at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in their standard room which they call Fairmont Room. It was a decent room, it’s not huge but it’s comfortable. The lobby wasn’t large, but they do have the pool/spa facilities […]

Banff Springs Hotel Castle Pantry – Banff, Alberta

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

We woke up late during our stay at the hotel. We decided to grab a quick breakfast before checking out so we went downstairs to Castle Pantry located right at the main lobby – next to the Concierge. It’s a great place to grab something to go, or grab and sit at their seating area […]

Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel – Banff, Alberta

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

I’ve been to many hotels in my life so far and time after time, Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel keeps coming up as my all time favourite! So, we decided to go back and stay again as it’s been awhile to re-live old memories and make some recent ones! We booked a night in the Deluxe […]

Days Inn Athabasca – Athabasca, AB

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

We had a trip going quite North of Alberta – we were trying to get to Fort McMurray for a tour and decided to make a stop at Days Inn Athabasca which turned out to be a really nice stop! The rooms was quite standard in size and perfect for guests looking for a long […]

The Regent Hotel – Revelstoke, British Columbia

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

We took a weekend trip to BC, just to see the Salmon Run which was really quite amazing! We ended up staying at Revelstoke’s The Regent Hotel which is kind of in their older area near the train lines. Once we checked in, we pretty much called it a night as we were quite tired. […]
