Do You Roll Your Clothes to Pack?

Monday, April 6th, 2015

A few weeks ago I was getting ready to leave town and packing while I was watching the Dallas Mavericks game. As I was stacking my clothes and preparing to put them in my suitcase, I noticed that I had a few more items than usual and was questioning if it would all fit.

I remembered a friend of mine mentioning that he rolls his clothes to save space in his suitcase. I must admit, I was a little hesitant to try the trick but once I did I was amazed that I got more clothes in the suitcase and now I try to do it every time.

  • Do you roll or fold your clothes in a suitcase?
  • If you roll do you think it saves room and doesn’t wrinkle everything?
  • Do you have any other tricks that might help the readers when they are getting ready to travel?

    I look forward to reading your comments!

Which Hotel Has the Best Workout Facility?

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

A few weeks ago I was in New York and had the opportunity to stay at the Marriott Marquis in Time Square. While I don’t love the area (way too crowded) I really like how close it is too everything and a bonus is: they have a great gym! I paused a little and would love to start a list of hotels that have great workout facilities.

I would say, my favorite gym in the country is the Marriott Marquis in San Diego Marina. Not only do they have amazing cardio and weights they have DVD’s and a room that you can work out in and take classes on demand (24 hours) – very impressive.

  • Have you stayed at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina?
  • Do you like the gym?
  • What is your favorite hotel workout facility?
  • Is there a website or resource you use to identify superior hotel gyms?

    I look forward to reading your comments!
