Did You Know? Hotel de Paris Monte Carlo

October 2, 2013
By: Five Star Alliance

Winston Churchill loved Monaco and stayed there often. As early as 1945, he got into the habit of staying at the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo. He would often settle down to paint on the balcony of his suite, straight after taking his bath and still dressed in his bathrobe. The hotel's Diamond Suite is named for him. Guests enter the suite through a red hallway which has all the hallmarks of Churchill. The British PM left his mark in the rare furniture items and personal objects, complemented by prints of his own works.

Brunch at The Bellagio

July 5, 2013
By: K. Clare Johnson

The Bellagio


The Bellagio
in Las Vegas is known for its spectacular fountain. But did you know you can have brunch there every Sunday?  Jasmine presents the Fountains Brunch every Sunday. The brunch features international brunch items to traditional American breakfast selections. Recommended Don't Miss items include the Organic Brown Egg Station offering build-your-own omelets and the Lobster-Potato Cake Eggs Benedict. To complete your Fountains Brunch experience, don't miss dessert. Sweet treats include chocolate fondue along with Sweets and Chocolates from the in-house Pastry Shop.

Not sold on the idea? How about the Lakeside Shellfish Bar featuring Alaskan Red King Crab? Or the seasonal array of sushi? Vegetarians can choose between Blueberry-Stuffed White-Chocolate Brioche French Toast or Lemon-Spiced Asparagus & Mushroom Salad with Fine Herbs. Or both.

Reservations for brunch are suggested, which makes perfect sense seeing as the hotel has a staggering 3,933 Guest Rooms and Suites. A rain slicker is not required.

Paris Las Vegas brings the City of Lights to Sin City. Not only is the Broadway hit Jersey Boys playing, you can also catch American Idol winner Taylor Hicks, who has a year-long engagement at the hotel, and there's Napoleon's Dueling Pianos, where pianits face off nightly.
