... blog doesn't show near that as it calculates the as-the-crow-flys mileage. Which still does not sound right, have you watched crows fly, they land on every tall tree. The blog has had over 2,000 views. That means my six friends are really staying up late. I have posted 400 pictures on 44 entries. Yes, I know I stole some of the pictures. The bad news: As we head into Mexico the 3G gets turned off. That means we don't go dark, but a little gray. ...

... br> 8:00 AM Pull up stakes. Our bus is tethered to mother earth and life support with electric, water and sewer lines. First disconnect the water line, then the sewer line and flush it with water (making sure not to cross contaminate the drinking supply). Coil up the wet lines and stow them. Next, start the 17 kW generator and switch from shore power to the onboard system. Coil up the shore power ...

... great Ron Burgundy calls it! I have to say that the contrast between Terminal A at Newark (avoid at all costs if possible, as it is a tired, dated, inefficient hub, where trapped customers pay five star prices for one star product) and the state of the art Washington Dulles Airport is stark. Dulles is a great example of how technology is used to expedite customers efficiently through a spacious, comfortable, well designed airport, where browsing the retail outlets or relaxing in ...

SeaWorld

Our final day in San Diego. It was time for an ocean adventure to SeaWorld. The park was a short 15 minute drive off the interstate. Kel had several shows marked for us to see. The dolphin show up first in the Blue Horizons Stadium. We sat in the splash zone, hopefully we would get wet. Out came the dolphins, a few flips, some acrobatics from humans, then the show was ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Andaz San Diego

    Top Notch and Cool!!

    from

    I've just returned from a single night stay at the brand new Ivy Hotel and had a nearly perfect experience. I originally was going to stay Tuesday night but my flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems. I called up the hotel worried that I would be unable to move my reservation. My fears were unfounded: They happily moved the reservation back 24 hours.

    An Amazing Evening

    from

    I was a bit skeptical after reading the previous reviews upon staying at the Ivy Hotel, but I figured to give it a try. Both me and my girlfriend arrived early on a Saturday evening and were quickly greeted with two people opening the car doors for us and asking if we were checking in and quickly got our bags and asked for our last name. Upon entering the lobby they had a file for us and escorted us to our room. We booked the premium guestroom with the 360 glass shower and it was everything one could expect.

    Luxurious but small

    from

    This is a brand new hotel and so I was excited to stay there because everyone seems to always stay at the overbooked Omni which has alot of heavy construction atm with the Hard Rock Hotel. I didnt want to risk that construction noise so i booked at the Ivy bout 5 blocks up.

    Great new hotel

    from

    I went last weekend to check out "Ivy Hotel" as I saw the article in the LA Times and was curious about a "communal shower". While the price of that suite was a little steep for me, I booked what I thought to be just as special of a room. It had a glass enclosed tub and shower. That could be considered communal! The room was beautiful and the tub amazing. I had my own bath butler draw a bath for my boyfriend and I. I dined in the Quarter Kitchen and had the treat of meeting their celebrity Chef Damon Gordon. The food was beyond compare. The flavor and texture of the Kobe beef surpassed what had previously been my favorite Kobe beef experience at Tao in Manhattan. We headed to the roof to their Eden nightclub and found it to be a cornucopia of sights and sounds. We reserved a bed as our table. How cool is that? And the view of San Diego was amazing. Every place we touched at the Ivy was unique and one of a kind. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate our every whim, including fetching black socks at Nordstrom's for my fashion conscious boyfriend. This hotel not only looks gorgeous from staff to the property, but it delivers the unique experience it promotes.

    Under done and over priced

    from

    This is a copy of my letter to the owner regarding our experience at their restaurant/clubs last night:

    Not all it's hyped up to be

    from

    as a frequent traveler and guest of luxury hotels around the world, i gave the ivy a chance--despite many warnings of a vegas like scene from friends and san diego residents. i liked their service and found the staff very helpful (minus the club/lounge staff who think they're working in new york). the decor in the lobby and rooms is well executed, but the rest of the hotel leaves a bad taste in my mouth...scantily cald women and the middle aged men who pursue them does not exactly convey class and luxury to me.

    Never on Thurs-Sat unless you don't sleep

    from

    This new luxury property was an anniversary getaway for two nights - unfortunately they were Thursday and

    Fri nights, when the downtown San Diego Club scene is in action. The techno-music from a club across the street(Martini Ranch) was non-stop until 2 am. The desk clerk on checkout admitted they are aware of the issue(a minor rate concession was given) and not sure what they are going to do about it. The room was luxurious - hotel amenities great, but we would only go back on Sun-Wed nights. The clear glass, wrap around tub/shower without curtains or screens will likely present some issues for some guests.

    Organic Elegance

    from

    We stayed here as a last minute decision. We live in San Diego close to downtown and thought this would be a fun get away. As soon as you enter the property you are surrounded by luxury. The hotel lobby is full on interesting organic type features. We were kindly greeted and escorted to our room. The room is on the small size but it makes up for that with all the luxuious features. A personal butler came a few minutes later with a complimentary champagne and the has left a fruit plate with a kind welcome note. We did not have a tradional view from our room but looked out to a light filled corridor that looks right toward other rooms. Cool but you bettter remember to pull the shades when dressing!

    Just another awful experience at San Diego night club

    from

    Ok...so with every hotel that's been opening up lately comes the night club and the rooftop entertainment....and for San Diego it's a big deal. Everyone wants to checkout the new place in hopes that it'll be better than the last one that opened up and died down after couple months.
