Those uninspiring, windowless rooms with milk crates full of rubbery turquoise dumbbells and cheap plastic ab rollers remind us of a time when Cindy Crawford did Pepsi ads and “Eye of the Tiger” was not only a great song to do push-ups to, but also on the Billboard Top 10 list.

Hotels that Rock (n’ Roll)

Alright, all Stash partners rock, but some truly have a unique history with Rock n’ Roll. Grab your guitar, fire up the old tour bus and stay like rock-royalty. (And remember, trashing hotel rooms was never cool.) “There are places I remember…” Edgewater Hotel most certainly qualifies as a place to remember. Seattle’s only over-water […]
