Hotel Review: Kimpton Palomar Philadelphia

Kimpton PalomarThe Michael W Travels family makes it a point to visit Philadelphia at least once per year. At around two hours drive from home, the city makes for a quick and fun getaway.

On previous visits, we’ve stayed at the Kimpton Monaco and a Fairfield Inn & Suites that reminded us of a Kimpton.

Review: Avid Hotels (IHG Property)- Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Hacked! 140,000 IHG Rewards Points Were Stolen From My Account

Once this happened, I figured that while we were away, my account must’ve been hacked! Continue reading Hacked! 140,000 IHG Rewards Points Were Stolen From My Account

Hotel Review: Kimpton Eventi New York City

kimpton eventiI recently shared details about what I booked with my last uncapped IHG anniversary free night.

Last year, I used my free night for a stay at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia. After the stay, I felt the property was worth writing a review about. Check out my review of the Kimpton Monaco here.

This year, I was hoping to use my anniversary free night for a trip being planned. However, nothing really made sense for us so I decided to use my free night for another Kimpton stay.

We booked the Kimpton Eventi NYC for a little staycation. Continue reading Hotel Review: Kimpton Eventi New York City
