Where to lay your head

To some, the journey is the destination, but for me I like to rest my head somewhere unique, comfortable, and stylish. That is part of the reason I founded The Voyageer – to spark travel inspiration for all my readers. Below, find links to the hotels I recommend in the USA and in overseas cities I’ve visited. I only share hotels I would stay at again!

Quirky items in hotel rooms, like branded mugs and stuffed animals, bring a spark of delight to what could be a basic accommodation.

San Diego:

It’s my hometown, and I have opinions. I have a specific page all about where to stay in San Diego.

The Voyageer’s Reviews and Roundups:

Reviewing hotels is fun for me, and sometimes I just like to surf the booking websites and build a bucket list of hotels I would like to stay at. Click here to browse every hotel review or “where to stay in ___” roundup published on The Voyageer.
