    9 days was my longest, my work schedule does not allow me the freedom to do longer than that at a time. I try to mix in some Holiday's in there to lessen the work dilemma. The 9 day trip was fantastic, usual is 7 days though, you take what you get and you don't get upset !!!!

    We started with 8 days then 9 days and now we are staying two weeks which seems just right for us. We always leave very early in the morning and sometimes it it hard being at the airport at 3:30:am.

    We started with a week then went to two. Now we are there for 80-90 days. Other than missing my kids, and my obligations at home, I could stay there longer or go more often.

    The only reason we can stay as long as we do is because we rent a house. I couldn't stay 5 weeks in a hotel room. I would be dead, my husband would be dead or we would be divorced. If I were to stay in a hotel room, then my max would be 1 week.

    I may agree. Both of our longer trips have been in a suite or a 1br with a full kitchen. The longest I think we have done in a regular room was 12 days and that was before we had our son.

    We always stay in a 1 bedroom suite (or a 2 bed/2 bath suite if I go with girlfriends) at Amsterdam Manor since our trips are usually around 12-14 days. We need the space and enjoy having people over for drinks and snacks on the patio/balcony and also like making breakfast in the morning with a full kitchen, Keurig coffee maker, etc.

    View from our balcony a couple of few weeks ago at Amsterdam Manor. This was the 2 bedroom/2 bath penthouse at Amsterdam Manor.
