There are many reasons you might experience a long layover when traveling. Layovers are the amount of time that is spent waiting between one flight and another.

The layover is sometimes unintended; a delay that is caused by the airline or poor weather conditions. In many cases, the layover travel is planned, usually offering you a steep discount on the high costs of travel. At the time of booking, the layover travel probably seemed like a great idea. That is, until you are sitting in the airport, with no access to your luggage, tired, and bored. Don’t let long layovers ruin your entire trip. A lot of layovers last for many hours, giving you sufficient time to enjoy the city or to relax in one of our day hotels.

“Thank you is the best prayer that anyone could say. I saw that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.” – Alice Walker

The hotel fairies (otherwise known as the housekeeping staff) have been at it again.

When it comes to the hospitality industry, the housekeeping staff is often the unsung hero of your hotel stay. And showing gratitude, whether that’s by tipping, leaving a handwritten note, or saying thank you in your own unique way — can make a big difference.

I’m not really sure where or when my love affair with Mexico City began (perhaps that fateful viewing of Amores Perros back in high school?) Suffice to say, between its amazing food, culture, and urban beauty the CDMX has long been on my list of places to visit.
