Issue 03, 2008: Affinia Manhattan Hotel: A dog's eye view.

Generally, we review hotels through the eyes of our staff based on personal visits. But in the case of the Affinia Manhattan, we decided the best way to review this pet-welcoming hotel, was through the eyes of Downtown Winston Brown, an English Springer Spaniel who is a frequent guest at this well-located New York City gem. Winston, also know as The Pants, due to the “cowboy chaps” coif created by his groomer, is a well-traveled pooch with his own frequent-flyer miles well over six-figures! We chatted with Winston to get the low-down on the Affinia Manhattan to give you the inside Scoop.

Portofino Bay Universal Issue 01, 2008: Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando. Orlando, Florida, USA.

If you've ever sailed into the harbor at Portofino, Italy, or seen a photo of that charming Italian town, you will be awestruck by the detailed precision with which this European destination has been recreated at Universal Orlando Resorts' Portofino Bay Hotel, a Loews-managed luxury hotel. If you stand at the Portofino Bay dock area, where water-taxis transport guests from the hotel to the Universal Orlando theme park and Universal's City Walk amusement areas, and look at the panorama of the buildings and waterfront area created at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, you will find an exact reproduction with the only missing elements being the tree-covered hills that are part of the background scenery in Italy!

There's always a sense of whimsy, fairy dust, mystique and awe in stories about Ireland.

The Eastland Park Hotel
(Portland, Maine)

We made our reservations at the pet-friendly historic hotel, The Eastland Park Hotel, in Portland. Our preparation for the trip started a week earlier with a visit to the groomer. We certainly wanted to put our best paw forward! Molly and Beau, our Springer Spaniels, were excited to go on vacation as well, though they were fast asleep before we reached the end of our street—no surprise there, since our dogs love to travel!
