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.

ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: I arrived in Savannah about 5 p.m. on a warm, pleasant Sunday and decided to drive around the popular areas of the Historic District to get my bearings and absorb the vibe. All over town people were enjoying the sunshine in the 22 parks and squares in the city, playing softball, lounging, walking their dogs, running or just relaxing. It looked like everyone was enjoying themselves; the city has a youthful feel to it.
