At the Virtuoso travel industry conference taking place in Las Vegas this week, Travel-Intel sat down with JoAnn Kurtz-Ahlers, CEO of a precious collection of high end hotel and resort properties around the world, to discuss some of the issues facing independent properties in an ever burgeoning landscape of large chains and hospitality sub-brands.

Traveling with Toddlers: The Guide

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or a newbie, traveling with the kids in tow can be like landing on a strange planet. To help new parents (or parents looking for new ideas) manage the ups and downs of traveling with their tots, here is a guide full of proven tips for every stage of the trip.

Fantastical designs remind travelers of India’s great emperors and the heady days of the ruling rajas.

This quest was put to the test recently in a study by OpenTable, a leading provider of online restaurant reservations and part of The Priceline Group. Travelers in search of awe-inspiring views have a bountious list to consider as some 100 view-worthy dining venues were selected from 25,000 candidates.
