Four Seasons Washington, D.C.

I just spent a few days at the Four Seasons Washington, D.C., one of the mid-Atlantic’s finest luxury properties located in the heart of Georgetown and a stone’s throw from most of the area’s top attractions. Able to support over 40 languages, it’s a home away from home to guests from all over the world – everyone from business professionals to diplomats to families like mine. My experience was exceptional in every way – it was an absolute treat to be a guest here!

My family and I recently snuck away for a long weekend to Primland, a rising star in the luxury hotel industry.  Located in the heart of the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia, this glorious retreat sits on 12,000 pristine acres and is an ideal get-away for both families and couples seeking respite from the real world.

The New York EDITION, New York City

I’ve just returned from a wonderful post-Christmas trip to New York City with my family.  When I started making plans to visit the Big Apple, I didn’t have to think long about where I wanted to stay.  I’ve been intrigued by Ritz Carlton’s boutique EDITION hotels for awhile now, especially the newest one to come onto the scene, The New York EDITION.  The hotel opened last May and has received a warm welcome in a highly competitive city due to its top notch rooms, service and overall cool, yet unpretentious vibe.

Keswick Hall, Charlottesville, VA

As the last of the warm summer days were upon us in Virginia, I snuck away with my husband for an overnight stay at Virtuoso’s newest hotel, Keswick Hall. I wanted to see the extensive room renovations they recently completed after coming under new ownership and learn more about this new Virtuoso property right in my own backyard.

The Ritz Carlton San Juan, Puerto Rico

I just stayed at the Ritz Carlton San Juan, the first part of my family’s two-island summer trip to Puerto Rico and Virgin Gorda. Located literally 5 minutes from the airport, the Ritz Carlton San Juan is an ideal choice for travelers seeking a quick get-away or planning to visit another part of the Caribbean. San Juan is the hub of the Caribbean, so virtually every island is easily accessible from its runways.

Disney World and Universal Done Right…With a Private Guide

I visited Orlando last week for my family’s first trip to the Disney World and Universal Studios theme parks. Our trip was the perfect opportunity for me to check out the new Four Seasons Orlando for my clients (see my blog post about the Four Seasons Orlando here:)  https://kgouldtravel.com/blog/four-seasons-orlando/  and also enjoy the parks with my children.

Four Seasons Orlando

I just returned from a much anticipated visit to the new Four Seasons Orlando. Taking my family to Disney (and Universal for that matter) had been on my bucket list for a number of years, and it was well worth the wait for the Four Seasons Orlando to open. It is absolutely true – you can now visit Disney and have a luxury experience at the same time!
