Patrick,

LOOK NO FURTHER! I have been through 6 website designers in 5 years, 3 in 2015 alone. These guys will help you create a beautiful website and its affordable. They will also help you with the ins and outs that goes into making solid website, even the SEO work! I could have easily spent twice the amount of money I did with Semper Fi Web Design. Even after talking to those expensive companies, the attention that this company gave me far exceeded the competition. Their listening skills and the fact that they are so easy to get a hold of, via email and phone, blew me away. If I could give more stars, I would!

The defacements have affected Web site operations and the communication platforms of news organizations, commercial entities, religious institutions, federal/state/local governments, foreign governments, and a variety of other domestic and ...

8 year old Tibetan girl, Ba Sang, has been struggling with lung cancer since she was two years old. She has been through two surgeries.
Her family lives on the Tibet/Nepal border, and their house and all their possessions were destroyed by the recent earthquakes in Nepal and Tibet. 
My wife's sister, who is her Tibetan physician, has accompanied Ba Sang to a hospital in Beijing for additional treatment, but her family is unable to afford the medical expenses.
Please help Ba Sang get the treatment she needs. 100% of donations will be sent directly for her medical bills. Any amount you can give will be appreciated Ba Sang and her family.

This hotel is the worst Grand Hyatt I've ever stayed in. The staff is indifferent at best, and rude at worst. The lounge generally was unstaffed, room service was barely edible, and the walls were paper thing (I could hear our neighbor's TV and phone calls day or night). Glassware in the room was filthy in an obviously poor attempt at "cleaning". The location is nice, but with so many hotels in and around downtown, this one is best avoided.

It's not the best Chinatown in the US, but it's not too bad. Make sure wherever you go you ask for the Chinese menu.

The Good: Nice views. Floor to ceiling glass windows. Large balcony. The Bad: Price is high, even for downtown Asheville. When we checked in, the first thing the desk attendant said was “let me check if we have any of your room type available”. We booked the “penthouse suite,” as it’s one of the few hotel rooms in downtown Asheville with a balcony, which is the only reason we choose this hotel. I took this to mean that they don’t reserve a specific room for you (much less the room type you booked) like most hotels do. As my wife and I were tired from traveling when we arrived, we just ordered takeout to eat in our room. Asking for a knife and fork to eat it with, they refused, and would only give us plasticware. As someone who travels dozens of times per year, this was the first time I’d ever had this happen. The room was dirty. The rugs had clearly not been vacuumed in a long time. The laminate “hardwood” floors were dirty and clearly hadn’t been cleaned recently. The large balcony had plenty of seating, but most chairs didn’t have cushions, rendering them unusable. The living room had limited seating (small couch + cushioned chair + table/chairs). The cushioned chair was broken and unusable. There was limited lighting in the living room, and what was there included burned out lightbulbs. Parking is valet only if that matters to you. There is no number/extension to dial for the valet to retrieve your call, instead they have a number to send an text message to. We did that ~30 minutes before we came down to leave, yet they hadn’t pulled our car around yet, and didn’t seem aware we’d sent the request. We ended up waiting another 15 minutes or so for the car. With more and more hotels being built in and around downtown Asheville (and Airbnb), I wouldn't recommend staying here.

Awful. I use UPS or Fedex whenever possible. The last time I was forced to use USPS for a package, they didn't leave it (and left no note either) because "no secure delivery location was available". BTW, these were paper towels from Amazon. You mean other than our front porch, where ever other package gets delivered? It was very cold and there was a slight drizzle, so I suspect the postal worker just wanted to stay in the truck.

Best Sunday brunch in the Triangle.

After waiting ~45 minutes, the food only vaguely resembled what I'd ordered. I didn't feel like wasting any time in asking the inattentive and seemingly apathetic staff, who failed to even acknowledge their mistakes, to correct my bill to reflect the food I actually received vs what I'd ordered (you wouldn't think I'd need to ask). I just paid and moved on. I suggest you do as well.
