Best Hotel Reviews February 2011

There are always a few hotel reviews that catch our eye on a daily/weekly basis – and we do read them all. The best ones are when everything goes right and people’s expectations are exceeded by the hotel that they book, and in those cases we feel that it’s good to share the love and publicise those great experiences so the hotels know they’re doing a great job and prospective guests can get some great ideas of where to stay to get that unforgettable experience.


Wellington Hotel Madrid

Wellington in Madrid's cool & cultured Salamanca District

Everyone loves to make a great new discovery, as Marjorie from Stratford, Connecticut did when she stayed at the Wellington in Madrid last September. She recently submitted her review which was muy alto in its praise. It’s in the delightful Salamanca district near Parque Retiro which is a wonderful setting, and she was very happy with her new discovery:

Everything’s Well at the Wellington

What a fabulous hotel. Everything from the comfort of the beds, concierge services, location, breakfast, staff and cleanliness are all top notch. This hotel truly exceeded my expectations and as a result, I fell in love with Madrid. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel. What a gem! ! !


Four Seasons Vancouver

Vancouver's Four Seasons delights with it's considerate service

Hotels that go the extra mile for families can really make what could be a stressful experience into a joyful one. We all love to be delighted by little gestures, and Prakash from Brooklyn, New York was just so when he visited the Four Seasons Vancouver in February this year for a night. Such a difference these things make:


We loved the Four Seasons !

From beginning to end, the customer service at this hotel was fantastic. I don’t think we have ever encountered a nicer staff, and we travel a lot. Upon checking in, they offered our daughter her choice of a selection of toys which delighted her of course. The rooms were nice and the hotel is connected to the Pacific Center Mall. We will definitely make the Four Seasons our hotel choice in Vancouver! !



Hotel Grand Tikal Futura

Guatemala City - Service with a smile!

Sometimes the actions of member of staff even in situations that would test the best of us touch people enough to comment on it. That was the feelings of the Smith-Garcia family from South Carolina who singles out Miguel from the Hotel Gran Tikal Futura’s shuttle service in Guatemala City who lightened their day:


Hotel Gran Tikal Futura

Great stay in Guatemala City. The shuttle was on time and Miguel helped us from the room all the way to the airport . . . . we were a family of 5 with a baby in tow. We had 8 suitcases, 5 backpacks, a car seat, and a stroller. Miguel never lost his smile, he was amazing. We found our rooms clean and quiet and all of the amenities were up to par.


Finally Louise and Jean from County Clare, Ireland stayed at the Marylebone Hotel in London at the end of February and as well as having a great stay these return bookers gave a great tip on a somewhere to eat nearby. This is just the type of thing Skoosh will be hoping to share more of in the future – great recommendations on things otherwise that could be undiscovered!

Marylebone Hotel London

Great Fish & Chips to be found across from here

The Marylebone Hotel is perfectly situated

Back for third visit – wonderful welcome and enjoyed our stay once again. Only quibble would be that this is the second occasion we ordered a morning newspaper and it did not appear. Ever! ything else excellent. Tried the fish & chip restaurant across the road from the hotel and had a terrific meal in a convivial atmosphere -you can even take your own wine!
