While most of my posts tend to be more business focused, I am an avid traveler and hope to give you my personal two cents on my own travel ventures. Let's begin with my first trip to Vegas a few weeks ago.
July was Vegas season. My first time in the resort city, actually. Since Budapest, I've learned to travel with no expectations - no Pinterest boards - just an open mind. I will admit, however, when I thought of going to Vegas, I was afraid. I've learned to say "Yes" more often to life experiences but Vegas is known for the land of lavish sins and "no ragrets". If you know what movie I'm quoting, congrats, you're officially my target audience. I can't say I was expecting anything too "beautiful" or "elegant". The more I wrapped my head around Vegas the more it kept popping up. It is a popular destination for large corporations to host their trade-shows, it is a vibrant city for night life and popular EDM shows, which at the end of the day is like going to the VMA's but in a miniature MTV city. I went for it and I was pleasantly surprised!
I stayed at the Palazzo (Venetian).
This was my bathroom...Oh how I love bathrooms. As a little girl, the first thing I'd do was inspect hotel bathrooms and tell my parents whether or not we needed to negotiate a new room. Bathrooms are the essence of real estate. Seriously - ask your realtor. In any case, my eight-year-old hotel junkie was in bathroom and hotelier heaven.
Vegas turned out to be more me than I could have imagined. Caesar's Palace, The Venetian, The Bellagio, The Cosmopolitan, Aria and so many more of these beautifully crafted hotels are respectfully pieces of American architecture. Are they over the top and a little too much? Well, yes. Cookie-cutter, touristy and expected but it still doesn't take away from the creative experiences the hotels boast.
My friends and I had an incredible time staying the The Palazzo. The rooms were spacious, the restaurants and amenities were more than what we could have asked for and more importantly, the service was one of the best I have encountered.
