With a name like Harvest Inn, best bring your hanky and keep your wine glass full!
We get a bit hesitant when it comes to fall foliage season. Sure, the leaves are in full color around most of the country and the change is so pretty to witness. But we're wary of jumping on the Leaf Peeping Bandwagon.
Itís selfish really. For some of us, this means the start of allergy season when we'll begin raking up endless piles of...tissues. Not a good look. Still, we won't be leaf-peeping poopers. Instead, here's a handy guide to some lovely hotels promising awesome autumn splendor.
As a bonus, our Sniffle Meter gives you the highest pollen count you'll face there on a scale of 1-10. The highest meaning bring your Claritin!
So pack your mock-turtleneck, Keen's, and Kleenex. It's time to embrace Mother Nature's bounty!
The Golden Arrow at Lake Placid, New York is high on the allergy meter. But go anyway!
GOLDEN ARROW LAKESIDE RESORT, Lake Placid, NY
Sniffle Meter: 7
You'll be in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains at this traditional ski resort town. But during the fall months it's all about hiking and biking the miles of trails, and getting the last bit of golf in. The Golden Arrow has an awesome location overlooking Mirror Lake, and better yet have allergen-free rooms so you'll be comfy at night on dust-mite covered beds and a hepa-filtered room after a woods-filled day. Room rates begin at $119 in October.

The only thing cooler than staying at a hotel this summer is being a guest at one that has a built-in music venue. This is a great time of year when well-known musicians go on tour at big arenas, but some even play some sessions at hotels as well. Yay!
Here are a few acts performing at a property near you. But ya gotta act fast when it comes to scoring a seat! We just missed out on Whitesnake tickets at an Arizona resort, plus they refused our offer to play Tawny Kitane in exchange to get on stage with rock god David Coverdale. Boo! But thereís still time for these shows!
THE CLEVELANDER HOTEL, Miami Beach
If you happen to be in Miami today we suggest you get to the legendary Clevelander Hotel if you want to take part in Y100ís daytime Mack-A-Palooza 2013 fest, which will feature a special appearance by none other than the lately entertaining Miley Cyrus! Sheíll be there along with hype DJ and Rihanna-man Calvin Harris. Oh, and itís FREE! You have until 6pm to see if Ms. Cyrus breaks out her gold grill, sings her new song, "We Can't Stop" and twerks her sassy little self.

Our sister VegasChatter has been diligently following the details on the new Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace, which officially opens in February. But today marks the first day the general public (the Nobu Inner Circle were able to do so before now) can book a stay at the highly anticipated hotel. The website shows January being fully sold out, which can only mean there will be the soft-opening hotel officials have discussed, and perhaps even opening up bookings for December.
As expected, the Caesar's Palace website has been pretty jammed today with the huge bum rush to stay at the 180-room haven ensconced inside Caesar's Centurion Tower. It's the Japanese restaurant group's first daliance into the hotel world .
Hotel guests will of course get first dibs on reservations at the Nobu Restaurant scheduled to open in January. It will be the largest in the chain, coming in at 12,775 square-feet.
Starting rates are listed at $249 per night for February bookings.
In continuing the spirit of ripping on awful Vegas hotel casino internet ads (see the Flamingo's Hangover/Morgue package ad), we bring to your attention the "Everything is Sexier in Paris" ad where a bride cake figurine is straddling her groom.
Makes you wanna hitch up your skirt and get married in Vegas, right?
Tips / Vegas Hotels / Room Comps / → All Tags
In the City Of Compin', Las Vegas, comps are a hotel casino standard. These are freebies that the casino gives you in return for spending money playing the games at their casinos. So if you're spending a considerable amount of time gambling, you are going to get some comps thrown your way. These could be food and beverage comps (usually for the breakfast buffet) or even a comp for something at the hotel gift shop or show tickets.
Yet who cares about a buffet comp when what would really make your trip is having your room tab picked up by the casino. So how do you do that? Well, we talked to some casino folks out in Vegas to try answer that very question. Needless to say, in order to have a shot at a coveted comp you will need to drop some coin at the tables. Here are the top five ways to get yo'self a Vegas room on the house:
·Ask for things
That's the key: Ask for things. Casinos are never going to just give you free stuff (aside from that breakfast buffet comp) so you need to ask for what you can get in exchange for dropping your life savings at the casino. (It also doesn't hurt to tip the pit boss.)
·Join the casino players club
If you are a regular visitor to Vegas (or any casino for that matter), it pays to sign up for the casino's players club or players reward club. In fact, in order to even get a room comp or other types of comps you must first be a "rated player." This means you sign up for the players club, and are given a card which keeps track of how much money you are gambling, at either the tables or the slots.
If you plan a trip to Vegas to do some medium to heavy gambling, the hotel rooms and amenities should probably not be the first thing that you are concerned with. You should be concerned with which players club gets you the most rewards. And if you spend all your time gambling in that casino, you can get your room tab discounted or even comped.
Just ask to have your bill evaluated when you check-out. If you have spent a considerable amount of time gambling, at least a few hours each day of your stay, the hotel will be able to knock off some charges on your bill.
We are talking big money in one sitting like betting more than $5,000 in less than a few hours. Playing the slots will often take much more than that. Different casinos have different minimum bets and time requirements involved in the comp equation. It's also important to gamble big when the pit boss is looking and less when he's not. Yet even when you're on a winning streak, looking like a loser (ie stashing some chips) can always earn you some pity comps.
·Charge everything to your hotel room
Dinners, shopping, drinks, it all adds up. You can't avoid having to spend quality time at a high limit table to earn a comp, but charging anything and everything you can to your hotel room certainly doesn't hurt your chances for ending up comped.
·Spend all you money in the casino where you are staying
The folks in charge of comp giving are more likely to hand you freebies when they see that you've kept a lot of business in the hotel.
We break down six comp strategies at six casinos post jump.
