The Stage and Screen team are incredibly excited about the upcoming Oscars and in light of the star studded event we have created our own set of Travel Oscars to pay tribute to airlines, hotels and destinations.
Oscar for wittiest car rental: Enterprise and National
Reliable, affordable and witty. Enterprise and National never let us or our clients down and their series of cute commercials from the US featuring the likes of Kristen Bell and Joel McHale, as well as good old Brad and Dave from across the pond, keep us thoroughly entertained.
The Airline Foodie Oscar: Delta
Towards the end of last year we featured Delta in our “Airline Food Goes Gourmet” article. And now Delta is introducing complimentary meals on some of its longest domestic flights, including transcontinental routes between New York’s JFK and Los Angeles/San Francisco. The enhancement is part of Delta’s ongoing multi-million dollar investment in the on-board customer experience. Hats off to Delta for keeping our taste-buds and our pockets happy.
The East-Coast Event Venue Oscar: The Fairmont Boston
With 23,000 square feet of meeting space and a total of 14 function rooms, The Boston Fairmont offers a wonderful choice for meetings, events and other functions such as weddings. The hotel also sits in an ideal location of Downtown Boston close to many attractions and tourist spots.
The Celebrity Destination Oscar: Necker Island
Barack Obama earned a much deserved break after finishing his term in the White House and headed to Sir Richard Branson’s home haven, Necker Island. Obama joins a seriously long list of A-listers who have splashed about in the BVI waters here and it's not surprising why; the highly personalized service, the idyllic scenery and the activities are just a few of its attractive qualities but it's the islands utmost exclusivity ensuring a truly private escape that entices these big names.
The Oscar for Best Airline Commercial: Turkish Airlines (featuring Morgan Freeman)
If Morgan Freeman’s narration wasn’t enough to lull you in this airline commercial that featured during the recent Super Bowl, the dramatic music and stunning scenery will also wow you not to mention the catchy and important closing slogan: “Widen your world”.
LA’s Best Rooftop Pool Oscar: Andaz West Hollywood
This sky-high rooftop gets are award for style, class and fun. The highest rooftop pool in LA offers not only stunning views but super cool lounge chairs and daybeds to relax in as you while away the day in the sun.
Canada’s Finest Oscar: Thompson Hotel Toronto
No we aren’t referring to the lovely Trudeau but to The 5 star Thompson Hotel Toronto. A boutique hotel that is set amongst the trendy surroundings of the historic factory buildings of King West Village. If the floor-to-ceiling windows in the rooms that offer sweeping views aren’t enough then take in the skyline from the incredible 40 foot infinity pool instead.
Too Cool For School Oscar: Acme Chicago
If you’re daring for something different and consider yourself to be at one with the hip and stylish then Acme Chicago is a must. With innovative design and a high-tech vibe, you'll feel right at home in this trendy, but inviting and approachable, hotel. The hotel itself promotes that it ‘wants your experience at ACME to blow your mind, not your budget’.
