Radisson Blu, Glasgow

Practically Perfect PA

After spending many days in the Atrium of the Radisson I was really excited about seeing the rest of the hotel. The glass fronted atrium means that there is plenty of natural light coming in through the windows of the hotel making the Grahamston Bar a fantastic place to enjoy a working lunch, afternoon tea or a quick coffee. Over the summer of 2014 I spent four weeks in Glasgow. During that month I probably spent most of my time in the foyer of the Radisson Blu.

The Landmark, London

Practically Perfect PA

The atrium looked particularly stunning in the evening. Luckily, it was an unusually bright day in London which meant the blue sky poured in through the atrium roof and the light was beautiful. Built in 1899, The Landmark certainly has an interesting history. Originally built as a railway hotel for commuters piling out of Marylebone Station just across the road The Landmark was designed as a luxurious retreat for those residing in London on business or for pleasure.

After the dance is over

Loosely Speaking

The many tables and chairs scattered around the atrium served as a magnet for those fresh from their breakouts. All you had to do was step out of the guest room where your session took place and scan the vast atrium to spot others gathering below near the on-site Starbucks. In fact, we even scheduled one breakout in the atrium, and that attracted a potential client who was drawn to our meeting when he overheard the term “virtual assistant.&#

Practically Perfect PA visits: The Hilton Anatole, Dallas

Practically Perfect PA

The atrium lobby is beautifully designed with Asian inspired decor. I’ve been told that everything is bigger in Texas and that is certainly the case when it comes to the Hilton Anatole. It is a massive hotel! Located in the design district of Dallas, which is just north of downtown, the Anatole sits on a 45 acre plot with a whole host of indoor and outdoor amenities. Walking into the huge lobby I was welcomed by the very helpful reception staff.

Hilton Doubletree, Downtown Montgomery

Practically Perfect PA

A massive atrium at the centre of the hotel gives the place a real heart. Montgomery’s official population is 205,000. This is pretty small for a US city and Alabama’s state capital doesn’t even sneak into the US’s largest 100 conurbations. This came as no surprise to us as we walked the streets during the 24 hours we spent in Montgomery: in January it’s a ghost town. Montgomery is a city that would be easy to miss on a map.
