About

HotelSidekick.com is your hotel buddy when picking a hotel that’s right for you!  Everyone travels to different destinations around the US and even abroad for different reasons and many times we are faced with the difficult decision of where to stay based on our personal needs (a certain part of town, particular room arrangement, the cost of the hotel, etc). We all have to make these decisions when traveling and it makes finding a hotel that’s perfect for you somewhat difficult.  So my brothers and I decided to write articles on the hotels we stay at to make your decision making a lot easier. And since my brothers and I each come from different professional backgrounds we focus on certain aspects of a hotel more than others.  We each give you a well rounded assessment of a hotel from the room set up down to how close you are to mass transportation.  Relive our hotel experiences through our stories to make stories of your own at these great hotels.

Specialty: Fitness & Health

Nick Hamway is HotelSidekick’s web designer and occasional hotel writer.  Growing up Nick always had a strong passion for sports and leisure and showed it with his involvement in track, cross country and basketball.  Nick received his bachelor’s degree in Sports Management from the University of New Haven in Connecticut and decided to take that degree and passion for sports to the largest sports and amusement complex in the North East, the Connecticut Sportsplex. Nick has been the Assistant General Manager at the Sportsplex for over 6 years.  The Sportsplex offers an array of sports and leisure activities for both children and adults ranging from a 75,000 square foot dome, a 15,000 square foot state of the art family entertainment center, three-level laser tag arena, cyber sport arena, automated batting cages, and arcade, to 5 outdoor lighted baseball/softball fields which host over 40 tournaments per year. Does the hotel have a basketball or tennis court?  How is the Spa and work out room?  Can you rent a bike or go on any walking trails?  Does the hotel offer any discounts for local leisure activities for the family to go and unwind?  Nick isn’t shy when it comes to telling it like it is and will break down just how well the hotel stacks up when it comes to offering quality fitness, health & amusement.
