Charles Street

I love Boston. I worked in Boston. I have visited Boston many times since leaving.

Because it is old and historic, it feels the same and looks the same, even though restaurants come and go and new shops spring up.

Our August trip was all about western Massachusetts and getting to a wedding so we had very little time in our beloved Beantown.

But strolling down Charles Street did the trick.....

 Until next time!

W Hotel on Hollywood Blvd

We are not hipsters nor millennials.

That probably goes without saying.

But we were surrounded by them on Saturday at the W Hotel. 

It was a fun adventure, throbbing music and crowds and all (and just a short Uber drive to the Greek Theatre to see Bonnie Raitt in concert, where the crowd was significantly older and we knew the words to the songs).

.....here is what you can expect if you ever book yourself a room (and are graciously upgraded to a suite) in the heart of the city!

Lobby is quite glam!

No pockets so the cocktail server at the rooftop pool has to improvise.

In-room bar had quite the selection.

Love the Bliss bath products.

View from our bed.

The floor mat in the elevator on Saturday.

And on Sunday (yes, I live in flip flops, don't judge!)
