Luxent Hotel: A Staycation that was Surprisingly Delightful and Memorable

Out of town trips are so overrated, especially now that the traffic everywhere is so horrible. Inside and outside the metro, you can’t escape the horrendous trouble of getting past the traffic jams.  Before you get to your destination most of your time was pretty much wasted plus the fact that you’re exhausted.  Good thing, there’s still a lot of decent and worth every penny hotels within the metro. One of which is the Luxent Hotel that we recently had the pleasure of staying in.

But what made us rate them that high? Let’s dive into it, shall we?

Want to take a dip? They’ve got you covered with their AquaTrim Pool and Fitness Center. It certainly is a cool swimming pool that looks like a huge aquarium.  We had a great time swimming as we take pictures and video of ourselves.  They also have a kiddie pool for the children to enjoy.

And if that’s not enough the hotel has a fantastic view of the Rotonda that you can easily view from the pool or fitness area.

 

A great hotel wouldn’t be so great without a restaurant, after all, you don’t want to go outside the hotel and worry about what and where to eat. It’s called “Staycation” for a reason.  So now let’s talk about what will make our tummy happy at Luxent.
