Hines Mansion in Provo, UT

After you get married you're supposed to go somewhere close by so you don't have to travel a long ways after such a big day when you're totally exhausted. At least, that is what everyone told me. So I decided that Rachel and I would go to a local B&B that was at a mansion-converted-to-hotel in Provo called Hines Mansion.

The rooms were beautiful and the breakfast was great. We loved how the rooms were themed and they had nice big, comfortable beds and jacuzzis in each room. Seems like a great "getaway" for any couple in Provo that needs a night away from home.

However ... I do not recommend Hines Mansion if you want privacy. It is the perfect place to relax, but not the best place in the world if you want to be alone. If I ever go back I'm going to tell the hotel owner that they need to invest in installing insulation in the walls. We could hear the TV going in the next room! We could hear people talking across the hall! Luckily we didn't have to hear anyone doing something else!

This also made it very weird for Rachel and I so we were glad to get out of there and go down to Vegas and stay in our suite there. Don't get me wrong - I liked Hines Mansion. But it is not the place to go when you need to make any noise at all.
