Spa 101 - When Your Therapist Lets You Down

Spa TreatmentsSpa TreatmentsI've been to more spas than hardware stores, and on a recent road-trip through Florida's Palm Coast, I enjoyed a bounty of spa samplings. One spa, while offering services at stratospheric prices, delivered underwhelming customer service. Between my facial and body...

St. Anne’s Haldimand Hills Spa

St. Anne's Haldimand HillsSt. Anne's Haldimand HillsIf well-being were a religion, Ste. Anne's in Haldimand Hills is my church of choice. My partner and I shed our clothes within minutes of arrival and donned those over-sized robes for a weekend of soaking in the hot tub, multiple spa appointments and highly encouraged canoodling by the fireplace. We even took...

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
  • On How to Choose a Cruise Ship Cabin on Your Next Cruise, Tinu said "Thank you for this post! I was dragging my feet about going on a cruise. Now that I know there's such a thing as a balcony cabin, I can't wait to book a trip!"
  • On Travel Advice for Visiting a New Country, NJB said "Hi Stacy, great article! Just wanted to say, you can get an international SIM card that works in multiple countries and on cruise ships. They're not quite as cheap as a SIM card from the country you're visiting, but they're cheaper than a roaming plan on your domestic SIM and will save you a lot of time if you're visiting several countries. I got mine from Telestial, which also offers a range of cheap travel phones and other useful products (adapters, etc)."
