Staycation At MotorCity Casino Hotel In Detroit

This post is partnered with MotorCity Casino Hotel.

It seems like everyone knows how much I love travel. Recently I have received the same question many times: “Where are you going next?” Lol! Well, probably a road trip in June to Charleston, SC, August to Tuscany, Italy and Province, France, October to Athens and Santorini, Greece and November will be to LA. But in between those trips, I probably will take some short trips, or staycations just like I did last week at the fabulous MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit.

I have been to the Sounds Board inside the hotel many times for fashion shows. I also experienced a super relaxing evening at the D.Tour Spa. But this was my first time staying at the hotel and trying their 4-Diamond dining experience at Iridescence. Needless to say, it was an extraordinary stay!

The front desk was very friendly and my check in was a breeze.

Before heading to the restaurant, I decided to relax and pamper myself a little bit. When you are treated like a queen, you seriously feel like a queen. Lol! Don’t judge my sunglasses. It is my queen uniform. 😉

I have heard many great things about the Iridescence restaurant inside the hotel. Being a foodie, I was so excited to have this chance to check it out. First impression? The decorations and views are gorgeous!

Then the food, oh my gosh, I have to say that I was in my little heaven! I ordered the special chef tasting menu with Italian wine. Just look at the beautiful presentation of each dish!

It was so hard to pick which one was my favorite. Every dish was so thoughtfully put together with the best flavors, colors and layouts. It is always obvious when a dish is amazing because it not only makes my mouth watery, but also makes my eyes sparkle. 😉 The dishes there certainly achieved both goals.

After this yummy feast, I decided to check out the casino. They do not allow photos there, but you can see me walking around the hotel. Oh boy, I didn’t realize how big this hotel is. The complex houses a 100,000 square-foot casino with approximately 2,800 slot machines, 59 table games, and two poker rooms; a 13,000-square-foot spa; 67,000 square feet of meeting and convention space; Sound Board, a live music theater with a capacity of 2,400 people; and a luxury hotel with 400 guest rooms and suites.

See The World || Shanghai China #2

This is the second post about Shanghai, you can read the first one here. If you have read the first one, you probably have already seen the modern side of this huge city. In this second post, I want to show you around of the traditional side of Shanghai.

See The World || Shanghai China #2

Shanghai represents the most populous city in China with a population that reach more than 23 million people. Shanghai as many of the most developed cities in western countries, is divided in two districts by the Huangpu River. The west area is named Puxi (older part of the city) while the east Pudong, (new part of the city) is characterized by innovative developments and a modern landscape. You should have already seen the modern parts of this city in my first post.

From a tourist point of view Puxi, being the older part of the city has more historical background; this is especially visible in the walled Old City district. The latter indeed remained the same without any western influences, and tourists can still experience the authentic China. The Old City district includes many must-see attractions, such as: the Xiaotayuan Mosque Dajing Tower, Old City wall, Yuyuan Garden, Chenxiang Temple and the Temple of Gods. All the photos here were taken at the Yuyuan Garden when I was there this past February.

There are often people asking me, what Shanghai looks like. I usually tell them to think about the size, Shanghai is bigger than New York City, and the weather is comparable to Atlanta’s. 😉 Shanghai has great scenery and the food is some of the best eats in the world. If you love boutique shopping, you are in your little heaven! There are so many cool independent designer boutiques in Shanghai with the cutest clothing and accessories.
