We arrived at the Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel in the late afternoon for our one-night stay. We informed the friendly front desk attendant we were leaving on a flight for our honeymoon the next night. He congratulated us and upgraded our standard room to a suite, granted us club-level access and offered us a late check-out the next day. We really appreciated the accommodations.
Our suite on the seventh floor featured all of the standard hotel room amenitie,s plus a large sitting area complete with sofa and desk. Our stay was short — less than 24 hours — so we didn’t have the opportunity to explore much of the property, though the pool and fitness center were tempting.
We decided to head into downtown Los Angeles for the night. The concierge quickly called us a cab from the line waiting near the hotel. Many popular downtown Los Angeles destinations are about 10 miles away. If you would prefer to stay near the hotel, there are several quick dining and shopping options within walking distance, including In-N-Out Burger and CVS Pharmacy.
The last morning of our stay we enjoyed complimentary breakfast on the hotel’s club level. We sampled from the light buffet of pastries, fruit, yogurt, eggs, breakfast meats, cereal, juice and coffee. As we had a long travel day ahead of us, we appreciated the late check-out and spent extra time in our room before making our way to the airport. The property offers a complimentary airport shuttle, which we used for our arrival and departure.

One of the best ways to experience and learn more about a culture is by looking for and picking through the local markets. Depending on the destination, markets can be found in the out-of-the-way nooks and crannies of larger cities or can function as attractions on their own merit.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
One of the greatest sights in the world, the great pyramids of Giza, stands towering in the desert, the imposing stature dwarfing tourists for miles. Visitors to Giza might feel twangs of adventure and exploration, but guests should be warned climbing the pyramids is forbidden.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific. At only 15 square miles and a population of 50, it doesn’t exactly come to mind as an adventurous tourist destination. However, this tiny island is hiding some incredible opportunities.
