"Really Nice Hotel at Base of Hill"

The Four Seasons Whistler is at the base of Blackcomb and in the upper Whistler village. Expect family fun, luxury and bears. The hotel has a great restaurant and plenty of cozy fireplaces. The suites are big and fit a family of four comfortable. The hotel pool is heated and with 2 hot tubs there is room for everyone. I loved that one hot tub is specifically adult only.

The spa on site is nice with a sauna, mountain rain shower and great facials and massages.

The hotel hosts free events for guests like wine tastings in the afternoon. A great place for families or couples.

"Huge Waterpark!!!"

This hotel is located outside of San Antonio and is a great Texas escape. My kids loved the kids club, ping pong tables and of course giant Waterpark. Try and avoid weekends in the summer as this place gets busy.

At night, the hotel provides free s'mores and tons of musical entertainment. I got to slow dance with my son under the Texas stars and its something I won't forget soon.

The rooms are really nice and the whole place is a lot of fun. Definitely book it if you can.

"Great Hotel"

I booked into this hotel as a gateway between two cities and had no intention of liking it as much as I did. I am not a mall person and certainly didn't want to go shopping with two little kids. Turns out there was tons to do.

The hotel is super modern, clean and nice. The staff were attentive and great. Try and pay the upgrade to get on the concierge floor as it will safe you tons of money in food. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there.

The hotel has a nice pool and lots of toys for kids. We played with pool noodles and water games for hours. Its also attached to a huge mall. Right outside the hotel there is an indoor ice skating rink and across the street an American Girl.

We were pleasantly surprised by how cool it was.

"The Best Hotel in America"

I titled this the best hotel in America and I don't take that statement lightly. This hotel is incredible. From the ocean views to the property itself, there wasn't a moment when we weren't smiling.

The kids loved the pools and kids activities like movie night and I loved the adults only pool and cocktails. Trust me, try the skinny mojito.

The hotel is pricey but this is luxury at its best. Our room was incredible as was every staff member we encountered.

You will be hard pressed to find a nicer resort in America.

"A Great Place to Stay"

The kids and I visited this hotel in summer of 2014. It was undergoing a few issues with flooding in the restaurant but repairs were being made. The hotel is not up to date and not anything above a 3 star. All that being said it is an awesome place to stay.

The hotel is located on the Chesapeake Bay about a 10 minute drive from the main Virginia Beach strip. I loved being able to visit that area but not being stuck there all the time. From our room, we could see the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel which is known as one of the seven modern engineering wonders of the world. Its seriously cool.

We saw a lot of dolphins in the bay and loved playing on the empty beach. The hotel even has a "kids camp" that runs 4 times a day for a few hours at a time so parents can play, eat or like me take a nap.  

This hotel is definitely worth booking. Don't let its older facade phase you. From here you can have the perfect Virginia Beach experience without all the crowds.
