I’m back from Buenos Aires for less than a week before I have to head back! I love traveling but this quick turnaround is a bit much even for me!
I try to make the most of these quick business trips by planning a fun lil’ getaway over the weekend. During my last trip, that getaway weekend was to Mendoza, Argentina’s wine region, to get my Malbec on! Seven wineries, roughly 28 tastings, and two super filling lunches. I think I did well for the weekend, don’t you agree?
The most pleasantly surprising part of the Mendoza weekend, however, was the lovely hotel suite I got! When I checked in, I used my gringo spanish skills to ask the front desk lady for a “habitación grande”. I had no idea I’d get the biggest room I’ve ever seen. I had my own foyer, dining table that seats 10, livingroom, kitchen, office/den, 5 tvs, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, jacuzzi, 2 walk in closets, and my own sauna (cue the angels singing)!
Some photos from my suite at the Sheraton in Mendoza:
Oh, and to top it all off, this Presidential Suite came with its own wifi — holla’! I can’t decide if the private sauna was better or the dedicated wifi…
As luck would have it, when I came back Buenos Aires, the hotel I was at also upgraded me to the Presidential Suite so I got these upgrades twice in one week! Not bad for a week of travels.
If you want to get complimentary upgrades at hotels, too, stay tuned! I’ve got a post in the works with all my fave tips.
