Review Of Convention Expo Travel A Great Company For Convention Housing

Review Of Convention Expo Travel A Great Company For Convention Housing

My name   is Sam King and since 1998 I have been traveling the globe for work and leisure. The idea for this blog came from  my desire  to share my opinions and experiences on the best the travel market has to offer. Keep an eye out for me and as I will  be constantly  sharing  my personal experiences on hotels, travel agencies, restaurants, tourist stops, airline and everything travel related. In the US and  across the globe.  

Today I want to talk about Convention Expo Travel. They are located in Henderson N.V and they are without a doubt a good bunch of people. I have heard the opposite so I wanted to check it out for myself and I decided to look into them. I convinced myself to book 2 rooms just to see what would actually happen.

 I called and asked for a sales person, I got a receptionist who took all my information and asked me 20 questions. This made me wonder why I needed to be grilled to talk to sales however I wanted to find out if they could beat my price on the hotel we wanted and if they would actually  come through.

 I gave all my information and waited about 10 min and a sales person called me back. His name was jack and he was very polite and he listened and again had to call me back as he needed to check a few things. I figured I would not hear from him as I assumed they only sell what they have and would not go out of their way for a call in customer . These guys usually deal with businesses traveling to conventions and I figured I had no chance of getting them to help me if if they could. 

Well within 2 hours Jack called me back with my exact choice. I wanted the Marriott and I got it. The price was about 12 dollars a night less not the 25 I had expected based on the pitch I got from the receptionist however I was ready for step 2 and I told jack to book it.. Jack said he needed a credit card form from me, and he could not just book the room. I accepted, filled out the form and then I sent it back hoping for the best. 

I got an e mail from Convention Expo Travel at the end of the same day informing me of my hotel , dates, and all the things I had agreed upon with jack.   

I checked in with no issues and actually saved about 15% on the entire trip. The staff was friendly helpful. I called a week before to confirm with the hotel and everything was just as promised. I have called for jack for 2 other bookings and each time he got me what i wanted. One city he could not accommodate but he found me something much less expensive that we all loved. Convention Expo Travel is …

Five Great Reasons to Visit California

Five Great Reasons to Visit California

California is one of the most visited states in the nation, and for good reason. With it’s great weather, and abundant natural and man-made attractions, it’s no wonder tourists flock to this west coast state.

One of the top reasons for visiting California is simply the land itself. Obviously, miles and miles of beautiful beaches draw thousands of visitors each year. Looking more inland, consider the Redwood State and National Parks. Who hasn’t seen pictures of people looking miniature when surrounded by super-sized ferns and trees of unreal size–up to 350 ft, and not wanted to go there? Beyond the Redwoods, Yosemite National Park is said to be unmatched anywhere in the world for natural beauty. With 3 of the highest waterfalls on earth, the biggest granite monolith anywhere, and acres and acres of vast wilderness, Yosemite is a big draw for visitors from around the world. Moving toward the Nevada border, visitors flock to Lake Tahoe, one of the most magnificent bodies of fresh water. It holds almost 40 trillion gallons of water, making it the largest alpine lake in North America. Lake Tahoe’s water is 99.9 percent pure; it’s so clear that a white 10 inch dinner plate is visible even when submerged 75 feet.

California’s climate is another great reason so many people visit the state. With an average of 354 days of sunshine a year, the weather is generally warm and dry year round in California. Along the southern coast, sea breezes keep the temperature lower in the summer and warmer in the winter than places more inland where the climate is high desert. Along the central and northern coast, average temperatures range from low 40s to mid 50s for lows and mid 50s to low 70s for highs.

If you’re looking for something more high minded to do, California has over a thousand registered historical and art sites to visit. In San Diego, Mission San Diego de Alcala, the first mission built in California, still functions as an active Catholic parish and is a beautiful place to explore and learn about history. Other historic missions dot the state. The California State Railroad museum in Sacramento is a popular stop for visitors. At one point this station was the terminus for the Transcontinental Railroad, and today houses many restored locomotives and railway cars among other attractions. Another museum not to be missed is the J. Paul Getty Museum in L.A. Not only is the actual museum building an architectural landmark, but its permanent collection includes Van Gogh’s “Irises,” a spectacular piece of art.

Of course California is full of many man-made attractions as well. Southern California is dotted with theme parks such as Disney Land, Disney’s California Adventure, Sea World, The San Diego Zoo, San Diego’s Wild Animal Park, Knott’s Berry Farm, Legoland, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Six Flags, and Universal Studios Hollywood. These parks attract thousands of visitors each year and for good reason: they’re fun!

Finally, one of the biggest reasons people flock …
