TL;DR: Convenient location and helpful amenities, but head-scratching hotel room design.

From Lisbon, we took a cheap Ryanair flight to the Azores, a set of islands off the coast of Portugal. More specifically, we spent our time in Sao Miguel, the largest of the islands. We spent four nights at the Azor Hotel, which is located in the central city of Ponta Delgada.

Review: Aeromexico Clase Premier GDL – MEX

I stayed just one night in Mexico City, so my priority was to be near the office which is located in the trendy Polanco area. Ultimately, I only spent about ~6 hours in the hotel. I got back to my room at 1am and left around 7am.

Booking

About 4 days before check-in, I booked a Standard King room for $175. If I were traveling for leisure, I would probably book an Airbnb instead.

For this stay, I earned 2,889 Hyatt points (889 base + 2,000 Q3 bonus).

Review: Hotel Indigo Anaheim

TL;DR: I would definitely stay here again. Convenient location, free parking, and comfortable rooms make Hotel Indigo Anaheim a great value.

Booking

I booked this hotel for four nights in June. The nightly rate was $236 for a total of $1104. (I had originally booked for five nights, but I decided to spend one night at the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey. I called about a week before my checkin date and adjusted my reservation.)

For this stay, I earned 9,440 pts. But wait, there’s more…
