Happy Saturday DMV,
What’s your favorite thing about a weekend? Sleeping in? Lazy afternoons? Brunches with friends? I’m in love even just the dream of breakfast in bed. It’s kinda the best thing ever, right? It’s one of the things I love about traveling and staying in a nice hotel. Top on my list of favorites is the room service breakfast at any of the +The Ritz-Carlton properties. I stay in one of their wonderful robes and wait for my beautiful cart carrying my delicious Eggs Benedict, Fresh OJ, Fruit and Coffee or Tea. I feel so pampered and elegant with the silver service and all the linens sometimes there is even a flower on my cart – hmmmm how lovely. I don’t think I have ever really had a bad experience at a Ritz. My best stay was at their Laguna Beach, Niguel CA the spa fantastic – room spectacular – the bed – the beautiful bathroom with marble everywhere – but what happened was the epitome of service.
|The Stunning Bathroom – I didn’t want to leave – felt so glamorous|
|Spa +The Ritz-Carlton|
I left my new iPod mini that my kids bought me for Xmas in my spa robe – called the laundry mgr and explained my children saved and bought it for me etc… they looked & looked but to no avail – OH Well – right? Nope – a knock to my door later that day with the laundry mgr handing me a brand new iPod – I was like wow thank you – what do I owe you? Let me get my check book – he shook his head and said “no Miss Tauraso your a lovely guest and we saw how distraught you were about losing it – this is on us” Whaaat -too wonderful and caring for words. I will always remember that and that 7 day stay there.
I am trying to convince my husband for night away at the VA Ritz Carlton for dinner, movies and of course Breakfast in bed!
I mean there’s nothing more fun than breakfast in bathrobes, still bundled under covers, while taking a break from all the deadlines before you, no? While that might not be in the cards this weekend, here are a few other fantastical things to enjoy at a nice leisurely pace.
