Hotel: Courtyard Dayton Beavercreek
Would I stay again? Yes. It was clean, convenient to where I needed to be and if I needed to be there longer, there was shopping and restaurants close by. Unfortunately I was not very productive once I made it there after dinner due to the time change and the lack of sleep from the night before.
Dinner: Mamma DiSalvo’s
Would I dine again? Yes. My client recommended Mamma Disalvo’s when I asked for a great local spot. The food and service were both great and I would not hesitate to send friends here!
Manicotti Al Forno
Lunch: City Barbeque
Would I dine again? No. I hate to say that I would not go back but I have eaten BBQ in North Carolina, Kansas City and in Texas where I live so I was a bit disappointed. But the place was packed so it must be one of the better options.

Hotel: Hilton Santa Barbara
Would I stay again? Yes. The last time I stayed it was a DoubleTree and I always got an upgrade. This year, upgraded to a partial ocean view in the building I like. The hotel has been rebranded and updated and some things have changed like the free breakfast which used to be better as a DoubleTree.
