Apr 10th 2010 6:48PM Four chain restaurants make the list?? LOL... that's gold.
Either fine dining doesn't exist in Tampa or you need to branch out.
Jan 16th 2010 7:21PM A&K *was* the gold standard back in the early 90s, but the entire safari experience has evolved since then. Getting in a van with 8-10 strangers and setting out with a guide who drives a pre-set path a la the "race" cars at Disneyland is A&K's bread & butter. Staying in lodges with 80+ families? No thanks.
Give me a safari company that takes a one-on-one interest in what you want to spend time doing. The personalized experience, as Luxist has said many times, is the definition of modern luxury and the companies doing it, like Royal African, are the best in the business.
Dec 15th 2008 7:13PM I disagree with the post on its premise. Two convention hotels that don't have minibars may not be quite a "trend", especially when those guests (convention attendees) are not in the hotels for the bulk of their stays. Just saying
This may be a shock, but hotel minibars are very profitable, especially with automated models that instantly post the charges to your bill. Four dollars for a Snickers? Yeah... that's got a profit margin.
Be that as it may, I don't begrudge the hotels their bars. I quite appreciate being able to get a quick drink without having to wait for room service.

May 19th 2006 10:38AM I'm not sure I'd call the Post-Gazette piece great. I think lazy would be the correct term, as almost all of the numbers come from a chain-email.
