A Road Warrior’s Dream – Beds, Business Centers and the Internet

Being in the global hospitality and tourism business means I travel a lot – approximately two weeks every month! I consider myself a road warrior because of all the time I spend away from home – most of my travel brings me to Asia and India, although I also find myself traveling around the U.S. and Europe.

Through my 30-plus years in the luxury travel and hotel industry, I’ve been fortunate enough to develop contacts with general managers and marketing executive who help make my hotel stays as seamless as possible, and for that I’m most appreciative. By virtue of being outside the comfort of my home so frequently, you can imagine how much importance I impress upon the hotel I stay at.
