Blue Horizon Hotel Room 2108 -Vancover BC July 3rd to July 5th 2016

I have never been in Vancover ,BC. So when the opportunity for 2 nights cam up we jumped on to it.

We were looking for a middle class hotel in downtown. Something close to sights and food.

Walking distance to beach and Canada place.

Picked the Blue Horizon on Robson Street.

Perfect pick. The Blue Horizon hotel sits right in the middle of everything. 

We booked deluxe room. 2 queen size beds, desk, TV, Keurig coffee and a nice chair with foot rests.

Lots of space. Best of all: balcony.

We had city view and even a view of the water. It was the corner unit.

The Blue Horizon has a restaurant and bar with it. We only had breakfast.  It was excellent and price was good. Really good coffee.

Plenty of restaurants within 1 min.

Hotel also offered pool. We did not check it out though. Free office center in lobby.

Over all: Service was good, location excellent, room clean and nice.

We would book it again in a heart beat.

Questions? Message me.

MGM Signature Tower - Suite 22-705 April 27th to May 1st 2016

We are in Las Vegas often. As MLife members  we usually stay in one of the hotels which are part of this program. We were never disappointed.

Planning this last 3 day trip we decided for the first time to book a suite in one of the MGM Signature towers.

We found a good deal on booking.com.

Just like with any other property it was easy to get there from the airport.
Check in was pleasant and fast. The girl at the counter did a great job explaining the property and the amenities. She even changed the reservation for us and checked us in early without charging us extra.

The suite did not disappoint us a bit. It was in great shape, clean and functional. Very much enjoyed the hot tub bath tub. We especially enjoyed the balcony. Nice views and quiet.

We had breakfast on it and just sat there relaxing and enjoying the view.

The fully furnished suite had refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee machine, sink. So you can cook your own food. But you would need pots and silverware. There were also only few glasses.

Those items you can ask for at the front desk. Not sure if they said they would charge anything for it.

On the property there was a small restaurant as well as a bar. We did not spend time at the bar but thought it looked inviting.

We had one breakfast in the restaurant. High priced. Food ok. Service ok.

There were pools and hot tubs. Both we did not use. It all looked clean and inviting as well.

We thought we are 10 to 15 min from MGM Grand and the strip.

However, it  was more like a 5 min walk to MGM casino floor. Another 5 maybe to the  strip.

We had a very relaxing stay. Being some distance from the crowds was actually pretty nice.

When we travel again time Las Vegas we for sure will check the offers for this place.
