The Maven Hotel – 1850 Wazee St, Denver, CO

Feast your eyes on the COOLEST hotel that just opened in downtown Denver – The Maven Hotel. We’ve had our fair share of hotel reviews, and we’re easily putting The Maven in the top 3, along with the Viceroy Zihuatanejo, and The Chanler Newport.

It all begins in the beautifully open and spacious lobby with an adorable airstream adjacent from the check-in desk that serves breakfast and coffee in the morning. Just past the incredibly well decorated lobby you’ll find the Poka Lola Social Club cocktail lounge. We enjoyed some divine drinks from a friendly mixologist.

Strolling to the elevators you’ll find an insanely cool art display. Hundreds of photo frames piled together in what resembles a wavelength. A nice break from the trendy gallery wall. After the elevator doors open on your floor, you’re greeted by totally tempting swings. Yes, we sat in them every chance we got.

We were lucky to get a room with a giant L couch, a dining table, a kitchenette, and possibly the best bathroom ever. I can’t get over the design of this hotel. Every little thing was perfectly thought out. We also will be inquiring about their pillows, because we NEED to buy them. Thank you for the lovely hospitality, Maven!

Jet Ski NYC with Sea The City Adventures

We had the ABSOLUTE pleasure of joining Sea The City for an epic jet ski NYC tour. We’ve lived here for what feels like decades, and can honestly tell you we’ve never seen New York like this. Yes, we’ve been on loads of boats and ferries that give you a similar view, but now imagine you’re on your own vessel going 50 mph soaring over those boats’ wakes. I’ve literally never felt so free. We were a little nervous at first getting used to it, but after 5 minutes we were pros. The best part is it’s a quick and lovely ferry ride from Brookfield Place to the marina in Jersey City.

Whether you’re a tourist or a lifer, we can’t express enough how much you will enjoy this experience. Book your own adventure by clicking below, and feel free to mention us for a free photo package!

Best idea we’ve ever had: spending Memorial Day at the Mirbeau Inn & Spa in Plymouth, MA. After an amazing weekend in Newport, RI, we travelled North to our home state of Massachusetts. I’ve heard so much about this gem in the woods called Mirbeau that looks so out of place you’d think you were in the French countryside. Don’t you love that moment when you turn the corner and see something so unusual and breathtaking?! I literally gasped. What a stunning entrance and facade. We immediately toured the property’s beautiful bar and restaurant, the lounge, the spa, and the garden oasis.

We entered our room with classical music lightly bouncing around the space. A lovely fireplace was already roaring, and when I saw the beautiful beds I thought maybe I’ll never leave this room. I think I need to start playing classical music in my room. It may not go with the decor, but it makes you feel some kind of way! I also spotted that clawfoot bathtub from a mile away. Sadly we got a gloomy day, but imagine sitting out in those chairs by the pond after a divine brunch outdoors at The Bistro. 

We also have to mention how much we enjoyed their bath products, available for purchase in the spa. Everything they make is 100% natural, which is so rare. Not to mention they smell incredible. Hello, sandalwood, lime, ginger, and green tea.

We hear there’s also a Mirbeau Inn upstate New York… road trip?!
