Once again, open marriage expert Jenny Block returns with another VIP Hotel Review. You may recall her last visit at the Hotel Burnham in Chicago. This time she goes big in Texas at The Mansion at Judges Hill. Enjoy.

From the minute you pull up on the property, The Mansion at Judges' Hill is a charmer. It is a gorgeous old building that dates back to 1900 and has been since added onto - but never has the design been compromised. It remains the same gracious mansion it was when it once served as a private home.

I was in town for a book signing and arrived at the property rather late on a Friday night. My girlfriend and I were greeted cheerily by an engaging employee named Don at the front desk, and we checked in without a hitch. It was definitely a sign of the fabulous service that was to come.

When my girlfriend asked me to join her on a business trip to Chicago, Illinois, I simply couldn't resist, especially when she told me we'd be staying at the Hotel Burnham. It's a Kimpton property, which is a boutique hotel group that I adore. They are always just the right mix of hip and comfortable and Hotel Burnham was no different.
