New York City
ACanada: Best ski resorts in Canada?
Definitely look into Whistler/Blackcomb Lodge Ltd or Banff. Great mountains and lots to do in the villages when you're not boarding.
ALisbon: Opinion on staying at Memmo Alfama vs. hotel in Chiado. Budget $$$$
Lisbon is a great, great city with different vibes in each neighborhood. A lot depends on what you're looking for in the vicinity. Alfama is great if you're looking for some traditional restaurants, fado clubs, and quieter streets....
