Previous visits to New York City we have used accomodation closer to Times Square for example, West 45th Street, West 44th Street, West 39th Street etc. This most recent trip we chose an apartment downtown, Sonder Stock Exchange at 20 Broad Street right next door to Wall Street Stock Exchange. Overall we were happy with this selection.
Esperance Beachfront Resort 19 The Esplanade, Esperance WA 6450 was a great choice for our four night stay in Esperance Western Australia. Our one bedroom apartments with kitchen were great for self catering while it is only a short walk to hotels and restaurants in the town center and along the waterfront. we used the outdoor bbq several mornings for breakfast. Location is also great with the waterfront right across the street out front.
We booked a Spacious Hotel/Apartment in Downtown Honolulu with Parking for 5 nights. We liked the location and found it suited us better than Waikiki. There is a good range of restaurants and stores close by. The apartment we booked via airBNB is on a high level and well appointed. The kitchen was a little greasy on some surfaces and plugin deodorisers were overpowering but once we unplugged these and stored them in a cupboard the odor dissipated.
This apartment was a good choice for our needs in Honolulu.
We had 5 nights stay at the Maui Schooner Resort in a 1 bedroom condo. The condo was well appointed as is the resort. the room had air conditioning, a full kitchen with a balcony, living room, laundry, bathroom and good sized bedroom. Parking was plentiful during our stay and the beach a short walk. Only one negative our room located on the ground floor with the bedroom backing onto the walkway at the back of reception so a lot of loud talking people seemed to pass by and occasionally linger from time to time.
We booked and stayed at the Quest Whangarei 58 Bank Street, Whangarei New Zealand for 4 nights. The property is in a great central location with restaurants and pubs close by. Our room was spacious with a kitchenette.
Three things in particular with this room;
We booked the Focus Motel And Executive Suites, Christchurch for six nights and are very happy with our choice. The location is great, close to the casino and restaurants and a short walk to the CBD.
The one bedroom apartment style room with balcony was clean and modern. Roy and Carol were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, without hesitation we would choose Focus Motel And Executive Suites, Christchurch whenever we return to Christchurch.
We wanted to stay in Penzance for 2 nights and selected this property specifically the one bedroom apartment even though there was only one or two grainy images of the internals on their website and hotel booking sites. In hindsight the images must have been taken just after the minor renovation was completed some time ago.
The apartment was tolerable but there really is no excuse for things not being clean. we dare not sit on the sofa for example, carpets not clean, kitchenette sink drain smelt etc.
We left Moab and headed down past Mexican Hat to Monument Valley in Arizona or actually on the Navaho Reservation. There were very strong winds on the way down causing dust storms which slowed the trip due to severely reduced visibility and we continued on Kayenta to see it before heading back to Monument Valley and checking in. Our accommodation was one of the cabins overlooking the valley and everything was included for preparing your own food etc. Nothing outstanding with this accommodation but it was adequate.
Recently stayed over a weekend with Miller Apartments in Adelaide, we booked direct with them as is our preference these days and received excellent communications from them leading up to the stay. We selected a 2 bedroom apartment and requested a two bathroom version as not all two bed apartments are guaranteed two bathrooms. We used their car park which is our preferred self park offering and is located in the basement of the complex.
