I stayed at the US Grant Hotel while visiting San Diego for work recently. I am not usually blown away by hotels, but this one really surprised me. I was a late register for a conference and the block of rooms at our conference hotel down the street had sold out. I chose this one because it had a good location for my conference and I was actually able to secure a rate even lower than the block rate at the other hotel! Excellent decision. The Grant is over 100 years old and was built by the son of President Ulysses S. Grant. It is now run by Starwood Hotels as part…
I went to St. Joseph, Michigan for work last week and WOW, I was taken aback by it’s beauty! I wish I could have stayed longer than the three days I was there, but I will certainly be returning! St. Joe has a great up-and-coming craft beer and local wine scene, which is something I love. There is no better way to experience a new town than by the food and drink culture! If you happen to be in the area, check out Silver Harbor Brewing on Pleasant Avenue (they have 10-12 craft brews and amazing food) and Silver Beach Pizza. We had wings and margherita pizza and both were excellent!
