Not only are Elizabeth and I flying in some of world's nicest airplanes, we're also staying in some of the world's nicest hotels. We'll be spending a total of three nights in Abu Dhabi so we decided to book the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi.

I Booked The New York EDITION for My Stay in NYC

They say New York isn't a cheap place to visit and they aren't lying. I've spent the past couple of weeks crunching the numbers on different hotels across the city trying to find the best deal. With so many hotels to choose from it's hard to be sure you're making the best choice, but I think I got pretty close.
