All of the COVID brides and grooms out there can certainly understand the trials and tribulations of planning and replanning a wedding during the last 16 months. My second cousin Jeff and his bride, Erica, are no exception. However, after five different wedding dates and 18 months later, we were all finally able to gather on Long Island this past weekend to celebrate love and honor the couple.
Since its prestige for attracting the world elite grew in the 1960s, Greece remains the go-to destination for glittering holidays. Each step of the journey is enrobed in luxury, from culinary traditions with the highest standard of execution and name-brand, high-end shopping to first-rate wellness locales and elite accommodations, like 5-star hotels, private villas and yachts.
ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: We reached Kimpton Hotel Monaco after a long, 4.5-hour drive to Pittsburgh, arriving just after 10 p.m. The front desk attendant greeted us by name and welcomed us from behind a plastic divider for COVID purposes. My first impression of the lobby was magnificent. The eclectic décor and modern ambience were undeniable throughout and one of my favorite aspects of the property. The front desk agent made my second impression potentially even better, which continued throughout my stay with the personalization and attentiveness of all staff members. Shortly after check-in, I received a text from the front desk agent welcoming me and offering this text service as a way to ask questions, request amenities and so on.
