Discover Puerto Rico and Marriott International partnered to launch Live Boricua Experience specials, offering immersive rooms featuring arts, decor, experiences and culinary offerings. Marriott drew inspiration from Discover Puerto Rico’s Live Boricua brand campaign, which invites travelers to enjoy things the Puerto Rican way.
Puerto Rican Marriott properties feature local brands and artists like Don Q Rum, chocolatiers VIDA by Yara and Chocobar Cortés, and artists Angelo Alvarez and Bernardo Medina in its rooms.
“We’re thrilled that this collaboration with Discover Puerto Rico and the Live Boricua Experience Packages serve as a conduit to engage with residents and travelers alike, as well as putting a well-deserved spotlight on local talents and brands,” said Diana Plazas-Trowbridge, chief sales and marketing officer, Caribbean and Latin America, Marriott International. “Our properties across the island are beyond excited to show visitors everything Puerto Rico has to offer with these uniquely enhanced guestrooms and series of cultural experiences. From its warmth traditions to its heritage and divine gastronomy, Puerto Rico is the perfect destination.”
The immersive rooms are only available for a limited time at select Marriott properties, including AC Hotel by Marriott San Juan Condado, Residences Inn by Marriott San Juan Isla Verde, Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino, San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, and The St. Regis Bahia Beach.

Homer and Janet by Homer Review
The Marais District, covering swaths of Paris’ 3rd and 4th arrondissments, has a distinctively gritty glamour that reveals it to be one of the city’s great incubators for new French food, fashion and lifestyle trends. It is here Moïse Sfez took on the challenge of creating street food establishments Homer in 2017 and Janet by Homer in 2022, doing it in such a way they both transcend the novelty of being regional American comfort food offered at stylized lunch counters matching up with New England lobster shacks and New York delis. Overwhelming local response and Sfez winning the 2018 Lobster Roll World’s Championship title in Portland, Maine, solidified him as a Paris restaurateur and one of France’s hottest culinary stars.

Review: InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown
ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: Shortly after 1 p.m., our Uber driver delivered my husband and me to the drive-up entrance of the Wilshire Grand building, the tallest building on the West Coast and home to InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown. Attentive valets greeted us and directed us to the dedicated elevator, which whisked us up to the 70th-floor lobby. Though it was early afternoon, our room was ready, and the desk staff checked us in quickly and directed us to the elevator to our 53rd-floor room. We strolled past several comfortable seating areas and a large bar and lounge, tastefully adorned with understated holiday décor. All were wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows, affording stunning views of the sun-splashed city and the ocean beyond.
