I am Simon, 46 years old, from the UK. I have been a road warrior for much of my career visiting more than 50 countries. After years staying in big box business hotels set up by my corporate travel department, I am now an independent consultant free to choose where I want to stay. I look for stylish, unique business hotels that connect me to the local area with good walking and jogging options, easy access to transportation, and great restaurants nearby.
Hello. My name is Ted, and I am a 52-year-old American, married with two boys. I have been in the travel industry for 25+ years with extensive travel throughout the Americas, the EU and parts of Asia. I am as excited by a trip to one of the great cities of the world, as I am to find a resort that transports you completely away from the daily grind and connects you to yourself, your family and the world. With active boys, we love skiing, golf, and time at the beach. I have too many favorites to list, but among them are Costa Rica, Seattle, Lisbon, Budapest, and the Berner Oberland.
Jill: 51, I am an American expat and frequent traveler. I am married with two active boys and an awesome dog. I love luxury hotels with character and good service, but they must also be family friendly and have events for the kids. Foodies at heart, my husband and I seek out the best local restaurants, so a hotel with local favorites nearby is important. In the USA, my favorite spots are Carmel, California and Maui, Hawaii. However, my favorite all time city will always be London, where I never miss a trip to Harrod’s food halls.
Nick and Maggie, 31 and 30. We are both college graduates, and engaged to be married. We love to travel to the great outdoors, and we are active river-rafters, mountain bikers, hikers and snow boarders. We often camp or find rustics cabins, but hotels are also an important part of our trips. We look for clean budget hotels with easy access to the main attraction of our trip. Sometimes we also take urban adventures, where we like to find cool, romantic hotels that do not break the bank
