Arrival/Check-In: I arrived late in the evening at the National Hotel in Miami. I was warned the property was going through the final phases of a major refresh, but no evidence of this was obvious at first glance. The large lobby featured rich hardwood floors, plush seating and vintage-style fixtures, which complement the hotel’s almost 75 years of history. There was no line for checkin, so I had my key and was on my way to my room within minutes.

On the Ground: The 83-mile trip from my home in Pennsylvania to JFK can be a hassle, but this time there were no traffic delays, so I made good time and arrived at the airport with time to spare. Check-in was pleasant and uneventful. The sun and the moon and Earth must have been in alignment that day because I was through security in no time and made a beeline for the Lufthansa lounge.
