Active Hotels joins the blogging world

While we’re on the topic of travel blogging, I couldn’t help but introduce the Active Hotels blog, which we launched in February.

As you may or may not know, I send the Active Hotels weekly newsletter, in which I try to cram as many good travel deals as I can find.

And by wicked deals, I mean, even I was baffled by the rates and would eye my calendar for a free weekend to go laze around in some of the posh spa hotels I found.

After scratching our heads about the best way to tell people about these deals without filling their inboxes with daily emails, we thought a blog would be a great place to start. Between the blog and RSS feed, hopefully we’d manage to use it as a good way to converse with our past and future guests.

It’s only a humble little WordPress blog and there’s still a whiff of fresh paint in the air, but I hope we can make it a good spot to find deals and some rants and reviews on all things travel-related, so feel free to stop by and say hi!
