Boston Marriott Cambridge Hotel

While I was in Boston I stayed at the Boston Marriott Cambridge Hotel. I wanted to stay somewhere close to where the training was being held and would also be comfortable. Luckily the Marriott was less than a mile from where the training was so I…

RocksBox Review

I was contacted a few weeks ago by RocksBox about being a RocksBox It Girl. Being someone who loves jewelry and everything sparkly, I was thrilled! I had heard about RocksBox and thought it would be really fun to try. RocksBox is a jewelry subscription service…

Review of Turkish Airlines Lounge at Ataturk …

Turkish Airlines has serious aspirations. They want to be the best airline in Europe (some might argue they already are), and compete with the Gulf state behemoths like Emirates, Etihad, and Qatar. Nowhere is this aspiration more evident than in their Flagship lounge at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul. I have done some traveling over the years and have seen my share of airport lounges. I’ve never seen one quite like this. Turkish Airlines’ in flight magazine brags that their lounge is bigger than some airports. Yes, you read that correctly. It is several stories high and almost feels like you are entering a small shopping mall.  They have a small movie theatre (more like a nice home theatre type set up), a pool table, a virtual driving range, Turkish style tea gardens and a video game station. I spotted a massage therapist providing massages in several locations. They even have hotel room-like suites for passengers with layovers from four to seven hours. Most importantly, there is food everywhere. There are several walk-up counter service style restaurants.There are also food bars all over the place. They have an olive bar, a dessert bar, juice bars, vegetable plates and everything else you can imagine. I’ve got a trip to Eastern Europe next month and am flying through Istanbul mainly because I had such a great experience in the lounge last time. If you are in the region, I highly recommend stopping in. The size and scale of this lounge is like nothing I’ve ever seen The billiard lounge A large screen by the entrance There were several counter service restaurants like this Dessert bar including baklava and Turkish…
