Bliss Business- Aloft Hotel Style
The daily grind. Traveling for work. Mileage logs, expense reports, hot cars in the summer, and being away from your pets. (OK, hubbies and kids too!) It can get old. Over the years I have tried various things to spice up years on the road. I’ll check out the events schedule in the area and try to find a great band playing (evitiably I miss my faves), usually I’ll hit a great place to eat, though recently I toured the Jack Daniel’s distillery! Tough though because usually there is little time for much beyond a work out, dinner to go from Whole Foods and a night on the computer. If I have a nice environment though, I can get into being away from home- I mean really- new magazines, Netflix and a comfy robe, sign me up! I lucked out and have found Starwood’s affordable chain, the Aloft properties. Chic & modern in style, they offer indoor pools, state of the art gyms, full bars (referred to as the w xyz bar), and my fave, Bliss brand spa products! Mmm, the smell of the soap alone, is divine, and the lotion, yum, a nice little perk! I have hosted events at the Aloft, the service is spot on, and one item I love that Aloft properties offer that makes business travel so much easier, pre bagged baggies of ice for your coolers of snacks right at the door..thanks, don’t mind if I do! Check one out, almost 20 new ones are opening up in 2012!
Jane’s Aloft tip- Always ask for a double queen, for about the same price, you get a much larger room!
