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.
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.
