The Irish Leap Day Tradition That Single Women Should Know About...

Feb 4, 2016  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

Irish Legend has it that St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, was asked by St. Brigid of Kildare (a fifth-century nun) if he’d give women permission to propose to men who might be too shy to do it otherwise.

The Taboo Business of Rooms by the Hour

Jan 28, 2016  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

Rent-by-the-hour hotels have gotten a bad rap over the years, but the industry is missing out on an emerging revenue stream. Stereotypically they are used for unsavory activities, and tend to be in equally unpalatable locations. Yet the concept and business model isn’t so bad. In fact, it makes a lot of sense when you look at how many hotels suffer unbooked rooms that could be generating revenue.

iSquare Mall + Hall Will Be Much More Than a Retail Complex, See What's In Store For the Project

Jan 21, 2016  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

When we heard about a new hotel and mall combo opening in Orlando, Florida, our initial thought was that the development mostly likely wouldn’t cater to affluent patrons.

Jan 11, 2016  |   Contributor: Chad Chisholm
