A friend of mine just posted this story on facebook, it could happen to anyone...
She was visiting the Atlantis with her family. They were there barely 2 hours when her mom stumbled off a curb. Turns out, she broke her hip. She will be staying at least one night at Doctors Hospital in Nassau before being medically transported to Virginia, her home, for surgery. When something unexpected like this happens, it is nice to have someone to call that can be calm and help put everything in place. I summed it up in a few sentences, but I am sure the process was anything but simple. Insurance companies get these calls all day, every day and know exactly how to handle it. My friend was so thankful she had a policy.
A word about multi-trip policies:
I love this quote from the Allianz website, "if you are taking three trips this year, you're not going to buy three suitcases. Why would you buy three separate travel insurance plans?" An annual plan makes things simple and is more cost effective. Be sure to read the fine print and understand the coverage as policies differ.
Lately, I have been hearing a lot about Virtual Reality. I think it's really cool for a little while, but I am happy to go out and explore and enjoy the real world!
Looking for a block of rooms for out of town guests for your Westchester, Rockland or NYC wedding? Crowne Plaza White Plains is the spot!
If you are having an affair with out of town guests, I highly recommend the Crowne Plaza in White Plains. It offers a great location, comfortable accommodations and courteous staff.
Guests arriving by car will have no problem driving to the hotel. I am the most directionally challenged person I know and I found it with ease! Anyone traveling by plane can catch a short, complimentary shuttle from the Westchester County Airport and be relaxing in a room in about 20 minutes. (Don’t be surprised to see the pilot there when you check-in, pilots are regulars at the Crowne Plaza!)
The guestrooms at the hotel are clean, spacious and welcoming. I particularly fell in love with the suite. It is the perfect space for a bridal party to get ready before a wedding. A guestroom is connected to the suite which is big enough to accommodate many people for things like hair, makeup, or nails. There is plenty of seating, a bathroom and a kitchenette. Spending a few hours with your family and friends in such a warm and welcoming space will certainly help with last minute jitters! I still remember the moments before my wedding, alone in a room waiting - I was so nervous, I begged a random attendant to stay with me!
While I was visiting, I enjoyed lunch at Whisk, the hotel bar/restaurant. I have many food allergies and the staff was very accommodating to my needs. I dipped a fresh roll in a bowl of chicken vegetable soup on a February afternoon and it hit the spot! If you prefer a quick bite you could head over to the Morning Mix Coffee Bar for something to go. As evening comes, a highly trained mixologist will create mini cocktails that you can enjoy with either a ‘big’ plate for a full meal or a ‘small’ plate for a lighter meal, but be sure to try the dessert, cheesecake lollipops- yum! Nightlife in White Plains is active, with Mamaroneck Ave. within walking distance international cuisine and some great local bars are easily accessible.
In addition to comfortable accommodations and a great location, the hotel offers guests a weight room, cardio workout room and a heated pool. High speed internet access is available throughout the hotel.
Crowne Plaza has exclusive offers for brides and grooms. Special rates are available for 10 or more room nights with no financial obligation for blocking up to 50 rooms per night. That is a great offer giving engaged couples lots of flexibility and time to gather their numbers. If you are interested in a block of rooms for out of town guests, please contact my friend Zully Perez at firstname.lastname@example.org or 914-821-1337. Crowne Plaza is located at 66 Hale Avenue, White Plains, NY 10601.
