Quick, what's more exciting than a brand new hotel? Easy: a brand new hotel... brand. And that's what we'll get with KEPT Hotels and Resorts, a new partnership between Dodd Mitchlle Design and Development and Sonesta International Hotels Corporation.

If the name Dodd Mitchell sounds familiar, it may be because you've admired his design work on properties like the Cabo Azul Resort & Spa and The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (Mitchell is a Thompsons Hotels favorite.)

Get Hitched for Free at Sonesta St. Maarten Resorts

Don’t get us wrong, we’re happily married, but something about the breeziness of a beach wedding sorta makes us want to tie the knot all over again. And at Sonesta St. Maarten Resorts, destination weddings just got even breezier.

Both Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino and Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino are doing their best to lure brides and grooms with free perks for any couple who books 10 or more rooms for a seven-night minimum stay.

Their “Free Wedding Package” includes a wedding coordinator, wedding cake, corsage and boutonniere, official marriage license, 10 percent off select spa services at Sonesta Maho’s Good Life Spa, a bride corsage and groom boutonniere, room upgrade, and free reception and dinner (with open bar!) at Sonesta Maho. Not bad! Especially if you’re too dewy-eyed — or, um, hasty — to really care about making each wedding detail just-so. And let's be honest, if you're planning a destination wedding you probably just care about the beach and your betrothed.

Room rates start at $275. The offer is valid through 2010.

We now present you with our VIP Hotel Reviewer Series in which we hand-pick experts in the travel and media worlds and beyond to tell us what are their favorite hotels and why. Once a week, we'll feature a hotel review from said VIPs about their favorite leisure or business hotels. Pay attention: These VIPs are experts at what they do and they don't mess around when it comes to their hotels.

Our next VIP reviewer is Chris Clarke, the blogger behind the hotel industry site Vacant Ready He's traded living in Vancouver for Egypt for a little while and of course is checking out the hotel scene over there. Here's his story on a little holiday he took.

I'm currently based in Cairo, and like most of my colleagues here I look forward to getting out of town for a little R&R. Last weekend I checked into the all-inclusive Sonesta Beach Resort for five days of amazing Red Sea snorkeling. This was not my first time visiting Sharm, but it was my first visit to the Sonesta Resort.

The expansive resort grounds are very well maintained, and offer just about any activity imaginable. Guestrooms are huge, though fairly sparse in amenities. Food and beverage offerings were surprisingly good for an Egyptian all-inclusive -- right up until I got sick the last night after dinner.

This surprised me since my system is accustomed to all kinds of abuse from Cairo's culinary scene.
