Hong Kong: Spanish Hourly Hotel

_MG_3729 - Version 2

Apparently when it's not inundated with shoppers, Kowloon's Mong Kok area hosts any entirely different marketplace after hours. It wasn't the first time in Hong Kong we saw some blatant signs of prostitution, but I have to wonder what makes this place 'Spanish."

Philly: The Bellevue

19A_0256

We had the great luck to end up in The Hyatt at The Bellevue on this last trip to Philadelphia. It's an older hotel, right on Broad and Walnut, blocks away from City Hall and right in front of a SEPTA Station. This is the only photo I managed to take while we were there, but there were tons of of details and decorative items that I really wanted to shoot while we were there.

The best part was that I managed to get us in there at a rate of $75 per night on Priceline.

Upstairs, on the top floor we stopped in a couple of times at XIX, the hotel's bar and cafe.

Downstairs, there's a shopping space with a Williams-Sonoma, a Palms Steakhouse and a Nicole Miller boutique that Tammi was pretty excited about.

Being right at Walnut Street, it was also a great location for getting to the Rittenhouse Square area.

For swank factor and actual comfort, I'd definitely recommend staying at The Bellevue and hope to stay there again.
