Candlewood Suites Airport – Salt Lake City, UT

These are nice suites and reasonably priced.

Suites have a full kitchen. The living room has an oversized recliner and a DVD player. You can go down to the front desk and borrow a free movie from their video library too! I was very impressed by the value I got from this hotel stay. I booked one of the least expensive hotels in the area and hadn’t realized I was getting a full suite. The room was spacious and the atmosphere was pleasant. Candlewood Suites is located a short drive from Salt Lake International Airport.

I would recommend the Candlewood Suites to anyone looking for clean, comfortable and resaonably prices accommodations near the Salt Lake City airport.


Bay Landing Hotel – Burlingame, CA

This is a great little hotel! The Bay Landing Hotel is directly in Burlingame California, on Bayshore Highway.

There are other San Francisco Airport hotels along Bayshore, including a Hyatt, Hampton Inn, Marriott and Westin. I’ve stayed at some of these, and the Hampton Inn is actually very nice. However, the Bay Landing Hotel is directly on San Francisco Bay, with great views of the south bay area ( on a clear day). Good breakfast, great decor, fast internet. It’s basically like an upgraded Hilton Garden Inn. Very nice Italian or Tuscan ambiance.

I typically stay at the Hampton Inn when I’m leaving from San Francisco International, but this time the price was too much. The Bay Landing is my preferred hotel at SFO from now on.

New York

Library Hotel – New York, NY

We recently stayed at the Library Hotel, a small boutique hotel in Manhattan, located one block from Grand Central Station. It’s an excellent location on 41st at Madison.

They have a very accommodating staff, and excellent room decor… very clean. They include a bountiful complimentary continental breakfasts and afternoon wine/cheese/snack selections.

We had a very pleasant 3-night stay last October. I highly recommend this hotel to friends, relatives and all.
