Arizona Adventures – Kimpton Hotel

Recently, David and I went to sunny Arizona for a business conference for Succession Resource Group. Our initial stay was decent and we initially stayed at the Talking Stick Casino & Resort. David and I aren’t what you would call gamblers. We rarely even play the penny slots when we go to Vegas, so there wasn’t much to do for us on the premises. However, the rooms were nice, the parking was free and there was a pool – although I wouldn’t call it a pool resort as it was just a pool with a couple cabanas.

Once the conference was over, we extended our trip a couple days to see the scenery and of course to share our travel adventures with YOU!  We moved hotels and stayed at the Kimpton Firesky Resort & Spa! I found a new love for Kimpton’s.

Traveling with Dogs

Traveling is tough, and if you have dogs like us (especially four dogs) it can often times be a deal breaker. Our dogs are very much a part of the family, but its impossible to take them everywhere and we don’t want to double our expense before the trip even starts by boarding them. If you have this problem, here are some solutions we have thought of and had success with:

  • Ask family, friends or neighbors to housesit.  People are usually happy to help and enjoy the new scenery.  If they housesit, they can still go about their day-to-day plans, but help out with your dogs. Depending on the length of the stay, $50-100 is generally acceptable. Added bonus? Buy something from your travels for your guest (ie. Starbucks coffee cup from the destination, good bottle of wine, piece of artwork from a local artist).
