Chicago-based entrepreneur Marko Iglendza designed Terminal Getaway Spa for travelers in a hurry — or not. Treatments at the growing brand of airport spas range from 10 to 90 minutes.
With five locations across Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Charlotte Douglas International Airport and Orlando International Airport, the expanding brand is becoming a premier airport relaxation station. Revolutionizing the concept of airport spas, Terminal Getaway Spa offers private treatment rooms, on-trend services and extensively trained and licensed technicians, at affordable rates.
Treatments vary in length of time and type. The Last Minute manicure is completed in 20 minutes, while the Time on Your Hands deluxe version lasts 35 minutes. Prices are $25 and $45, respectively. Ten minutes in the massage chair offers a quick hit of relaxation for $19, while travelers with time to spare can indulge in the 90-minute Bod Voyage deep-tissue massage.
There’s an aspirational rustic chic/farm-to-table restaurant genre often associated with Northern California’s wine country. When you drive down the main street of Napa, Sonoma or any of the other towns, it appears there are as many of them as there are vineyards. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this genre, as the quality of the food is consistent and ambitious chefs earnestly endeavor to elevate home-style dishes to a higher standard.

Without a doubt, the pandemic changed the role of airports in the travel industry. Hamad International Airport’s role evolved in many ways since the pandemic hit. Now, more than ever, airports are responsible for creating a secure passenger experience. As the gateway to Qatar and the world, the safety and wellbeing of staff and passengers has always been at the core of Hamad International Airport’s strategy.
Cathay Pacific Airways and the Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF announced the Change for Good in-flight fundraising program raised a total of HK$1.56 million, or about $200,500, over the 2020 program period.
During the 1990s, domestic and international travel increased dramatically in almost every region of the world. But when COVID-19 hit the travel industry in early 2020, airport managers gazed at empty terminals and parking lots and either stopped all construction work or took advantage of the suddenly quiet, traffic-free landscape to speed up expansion projects. For many airports, working through the pandemic meant they were able to complete their new runway and terminal projects, which included installing colorful new artwork that greeted millions of passengers in summer 2021 when TSA lines and flight schedules returned to pre-pandemic levels.

This is a tale of two visits, one when I was just coming for a late lunch by myself and the other time returning as a five-night guest. The hotel used to be the jewel in the Kessler crown, but since the opening of JW Marriott Plant, it feels like the Mansion is an afterthought. Check-in and valet service are always superb at the Mansion; when I was there as a restaurant guest, I had a “big old pickup truck” — well, not old, as it was a rental from Hertz — and I could not have received nicer treatment. In fact, the pickup was out front and remained there as I had lunch — no charge, either! As a guest, I still received very kind care, but service was slower; maybe more people were there. Check-in was swift, but water seemed to be at a premium, and we had to secure this from the front desk daily — which I felt was inconvenient. I often found myself running down to secure a few bottles at the end of the day. The hotel has some impressive artwork throughout which is really interesting and helps set a fun mood.
