Greetings from the road

You might have noticed that I'm not responding to comments very much this week. The reason is that the blog was on auto pilot for a few days due to a business trip. I'm traveling with a group and did not make the travel arrangements, which means that instead of staying at Kimpton, we're at Marriotts, Sheratons, and Hiltons.

I didn't think I'd have any material for a hotel sneak peak until I got the the Sheraton in Wakefield, MA. They have seriously updated from the quaint, colonial hotel they once were. The lobby is flanked by two large lounge areas. The colors are pretty neutral, but when you look up, you see this:

The business center, which typically consists of three computers in a nondescript room is equally surprising.

Nice to see some big chains stepping things up a notch in the decor area.


  1. I agree, cheesy hotel decor is so depressing.

  2. It is so fun to find happy hotels, isn't it!? Thanks for your comment today! I too love the simplicity of Simon Pearce. So much more interesting than fussy pieces.

    We lived in Cville while there for Grad school- loved it and miss it much!

  3. Love your blog! I was born in Wakefield, MA... what a small world. Never knew it had so much style.
