Stories that inspire: our favorite guest moments from March

Every guest story is an opportunity for a hotel to unveil something new. Stories reach & inspire—they’re truly memorable, sometimes magical, and a lot of times, a bit of fun.

In a way, we’ve fallen in love with guest stories, and every day see firsthand the impact they’re making for hotels. That’s why we’re sharing them with you! Check out a handful of our recent favorites below:


Barefoot Cay Resort — Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

“Top notch accommodations in a perfect location with incredibly knowledgeable, caring, attentive and professional dive staff.” — Sherry W.

Dive in

Adrift Hotel & Spa — Long Beach, Washington

“Our dog is a rescue from Iran and had never seen the ocean before. It was a hoot to let her run off-leash on the beach for the first time; to be completely honest, we weren’t sure she would ever come back! Adrift is a haven for dog lovers and a beautiful destination year-round. We loved visiting in early March, there were times when we had the whole beach to ourselves and the stormy ocean was indescribably beautiful.” — Danielle J.
