The Allison Inn & Spa - Willamette Valley


After the Allison Inn & Spa was repeatedly recommended as the place to stay when in Willamette, I went on-line and booked a room. The resort was built in 2009 and was the valley's first luxury hotel. It sits on 35 acres with vineyards, gorgeous gardens and a surrounding art walk. We arrived to find that we had a ground floor room with a back patio and small garden space which lent an air of privacy though it lead out to the walkway. 

Our room was fairly spacious with a gas fireplace easily lit for warmth or ambience. There was adequate storage for two people's things and comfortable seating where one could work or enjoy coffee.  It had a large marble bathroom and vanity area. While the room had abundant natural and artificial light and was easily darkened for sleeping, the bathroom could have used a bit more light for morning and pre-dinner primping.

There was a nice bar on the lobby level with a living room serving up a good array of wine and snacks. It opened to a large terrace with beautiful views . We enjoyed a flight of local sparkling rosé upon our arrival. Adjacent to this area is the hotel restaurant, The Jory. We had breakfast there one day during our stay and we both thought it was good.

We had a couple's massage appointment our first day there and it was fantastic, we both thought our therapists were highly skilled. We were also able to spend some time in the hot tub and enjoy some tea together out on the sundeck. It is very important to make all  of your spa reservations when you make your hotel reservation. I had wanted to book a second treatment but there was no more availability during our stay.

The inn is in Newberg, a great Willamette Valley location if you are planning on visiting wineries and it has many good restaurants nearby. The hotel is clean, it is very comfortable and we found the staff to be very welcoming. We loved our stay here and we would absolutely return again, The Allison Inn & Spa is highly recommended.

Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows - Santa Monica

My husband and I stayed at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows with our adult daughter this summer after her graduation from a Masters program at Claremont Graduate University.

We wanted to be near the beach but still be able to easily get into Los Angeles to visit some of the tourist attractions. This was our first time to stay at a Fairmont Hotel. I chose the Miramar for its ocean views and its proximity to the Santa Monica Pier and the beach. It has a long history with a Hollywood connection, it has been a destination of the stars for almost a century. After looking over the various room options, I decided that the Palisade King Suite would easily accommodate us. My husband and I shared a private bedroom and our daughter got the fold out couch in the living room. The six story Palisades wing which housed our room is a historic part of the property that was built in 1924. For a more luxe experience, you can also book a poolside bungalow instead.

We all enjoyed spa treatments a…

Touring the Getty Villa

We toured the Getty Villa during our recent trip to Santa Monica, it was about a 15 minute drive from our hotel. We opted to do a self-guided tour as we had not really allowed enough time for this visit. The museum is currently under construction and will be until the fall of this year so some parts were closed or not fully functional during our time there. Check the website for more information on times and schedules.

Visitors enter through the Fleishman Theater which was added in 1996 during a renovation. It is constructed to look like an outdoor classical theater and they will do a live production here on weekends in September which does carry a cost.

Admission is free to tour the Getty Villa but parking is $15 a car. You do need to go on-line and reserve your tickets as you have a designated entry time. They also have shows, tours and live music on their calendar that you may want to schedule your visit around, some fees may apply for those special events. The shows include a wide r…
