The Hamptons

26 July, 2021 (05:29) | Lifestyle, North America, Scenic Views, Vacation Ideas

As a travel and lifestyle editor, I am always thinking of the next location, and/or thing that our readers around the world would enjoy. As a result, it is sometimes difficult to turn off my work brain when on vacation. It takes an extraordinarily relaxing location to enable me to turn off all work related thoughts and unwind. The Hamptons in Long Island, NY is that extraordinary location for me!

We captured the view on video from our oceanfront suite at Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Spa!

What a view to wake up to!

Long Awaited Getaway

6 July, 2021 (08:45) | Hotels and Resorts, North America, Washington DC

For my first getaway since the pandemic began I headed to National Harbor outside of Washington, DC. A local hotel overlooking the Potomac River was having a grand re-opening after what was said to be millions of dollars in renovations. I was excited to see the changes that had been made since my last stay. I was among the first guests to arrive at the hotel on opening day.

I must admit the hotel staff was welcoming but overall in my opinion the hotel had issues that should have been addressed before its grand re-opening. Not all the rooms were ready for guests on opening day as a result my room preference could not be accommodated. I noticed that a couple of the restaurants that had previously been open were not open they were boarded up with “Coming Soon” signs. I was able to order lunch at the Harbor Market Place.

I was most excited to visit the pool area in order to enjoy an afternoon dip in the pool. I was disappointed to find the same layout from my previous stay a couple of years ago. I expected to see the doors opened for an indoor/outdoor pool experience but that was not the case. The water in the indoor pool was cold, the lounge seat cushions were old and had stains on them and the outdoor jacuzzi was filled with dirty water, the bar area was closed and there were dead leaves on the ground in the outdoor lounge area.

The guest rooms were beautifully decorated but I noticed “drill/saw dust” inside the drawers. There were a few cosmetic issues within the bathroom area that needed to be addressed but the biggest issue that I experienced during my stay was the lack of “hot water”. At first I thought that if I allowed the water to run for a while it would eventually become hot but unfortunately it did not work. Of course, I contacted the front desk to notify them of the problem after waiting a half hour or more I tried running the water again to see if the problem had been resolved. To my surprise the water became warmer so I contacted the front desk and maintenance to inform them that the water was now getting warmer.

Afterwards, I went for a late afternoon stroll in National Harbor near the ferris wheel and to dinner. When I returned to the room the water was once again cold. By that time, I was exhausted and decided to tolerate the cold shower water. I expected my stay to be effortless on the first day of a hotel grand re-opening where millions of dollars were supposedly spent but at least it was nice to travel again!

Back to the Mall

Over the past year so much of our everyday life has changed. The simple act of going to the mall on a Saturday afternoon was eliminated. For our first trip back to the mall after a year, we decided to head to Tysons Corner Center just outside of Washington, DC.

It was nice to see the beautiful fashions up close and personal again!

The Exorcist stairs are located in the Washington, DC neighborhood of Georgetown. The 75 stair step staircase became famous as a result of the 1973 horror movie The Exorcist. If you visit be sure to bring your patience because the stairs are a tourist attraction as well as a place for exercisers.
