Where To Next? {Cool Client Trips #2}

I’m back today with the second in a series of “Cool Client Trips”.  I thought sharing these regularly with you would offer great inspiration for your own travels.  I often get client requests to “go somewhere warm” or “go somewhere within driving distance”, etc. and these posts can catalog the number of incredible destinations I’ve sent my clients to!

Willard Intercontinental

Hotel Home | Dixie Delights Review

We absolutely loved the Willard Intercontinental as our home for our DC trip.  The moment we stepped inside I knew we were in for a treat!  Throughout the duration of our stay, we experienced first class service and determined that we could not have chosen a more perfect and central location for our D.C. adventures.  Since then, I have booked multiple clients in this hotel and have only received the highest reviews back from them!


The Willard InterContinental is located in the heart of Washington, D.C.’s business district and is within walking distance to several tourist attractions including the White House, the National Mall and the Smithsonian Museums. From its inception in 1846, to the present day, the Willard hotel has been a favorite choice of US and international travelers alike. Known as the “Residence of Presidents,” the Willard enjoys its place as a major force in the social and political life of Washington DC.

Montage Palmetto Bluff

Montage Palmetto Bluff is at the top of my list for my own family in 2019.  They offer everything from golf, spa and swimming to boating, yachting, shooting, racquet ball and horseback riding.  Families will enjoy bowling and games, roasting s’mores, exploring the treehouses visiting with the canine ambassadors and earning merit badges for different experiences during their stay.  My clients had a marvelous time relaxing with their sweet family of five in the Low Country!

Set within an award winning 20,000 acre development, the resort encompasses an extensive nature preserve, walking trails, marina, two vibrant villages, restaurants, and a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.

Our biggest Christmas gift to the kids each year is “something to do”.  They are going to be SO SO SO surprised to wake up on Christmas morning and find a ski trip out West under the tree.  They have been asking to go since the day we returned home from skiing Vermont in 2017.  <3  Now, if only Santa would put a Palmetto Bluff trip under the tree for me.  :-)

  1. We went to Grand Velas a few years ago. We are about to go to their third and last property in a month. SO far Grand Velas Riveria Maya has been my fave. I do not like that it’s such a long drive from airport to hotel and traffic is sketchy to say the least. Our return flight home we almost missed. We did go on an excursion but honestly I don’t think you need to leave the property even. It’s so beautiful. I highly recommend it for your family Amanda!
