My Background

I have been in the travel business for almost 30 years and covered much of the globe. I got the travel bug  as a 12 year old doing a road trip across the US with my family and then a summer in England, and finally an academic  year in Paris. So it goes and I have been many spots since and often returned to some of my favorites.

Professional expertise + personal commitment

Cannon is a joy to work with. He is knowledgable, experienced and thorough. He is patient with our numerous questions and reliable in making flight and hotel arrangements. He takes the initiative to pursue added services from the hotels, for example, recommendations for day trips, restaurants, concert tickets and the like. Cannon remains accessible during our stays, making sure we have access to him if needed. He listens to us and goes out of his way to make sure the trip is perfect for us. We just returned from a trip to San Francisco: the flights went well and the hotel was a treat. It proved to be a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. This fall we will be traveling to Europe, a trip Cannon has already designed. We are sure it will be another success.

Extremely knowledgeable and so friendly!

Cannon was a great help as I planned a quick trip to London. He gave me several superb options for hotels in the city. The Stafford ended up being the right fit for me. It was a lovely hotel and the virtuoso perks were wonderful. Upon my return he followed up to see how the trip was. I can't wait to start planning my next trip guided by Cannon's expertise!

Thanks, Cannon, for all the work you did to make it happen. The hotels were perfect, the staffs were very welcoming. We had a great time. Venice is magical just as we remembered, and Dublin was a hoot. Talk with you soon.

Very Good Service

I recently went on a three week vacation to England and Spain with many side trips, all of which Cannon helped me to plan. Everything went very well. I couldn't have done it without Cannon's help, patience and resourcefulness!

A perfect trip!

We recently used Cannon Spottswood to help us on a somewhat complicated multi-city holiday trip. New York, Palm Beach, Miami. Three hotels and a rental car, three different airports and alot of other confusion. Cannon handled it all great and we had a terrific time. A great hotel room at the Fontainebleu in Miami. Two great hotels in New York. Most importantly, rather than spending all of our time on line trying to figure out transfers and hotel rooms, Cannon handled it all and we were focused on the holidays and visiting family. Thank you for everything!

Cannon was very responsive to all requests. He communicated frequently with hotels, concierge and guides and offered excellent guidance and suggestions that enhanced the value and pleasure of our trip immeasurably. I can not find any fault with Cannon's service and recommend him highly.

Exceptional! He's the best. From the limo in from CDG to the hotel doorstep everything worked very smoothly. WE have always relied on Cannon and he always delivers.

Care and attention!

I loved working with Cannon on the planning of this trip. After we gave him an idea of what we were looking for, he came back with wonderful options for us to consider. The suggestion of the Sofitel Grand was perfect: great location, beautiful room, lovely service and amenities and a special welcome from the GM! Cannon provided us with tour information, restaurants to try, special not-to-be-missed experiences and all were perfect. Post Amsterdam, we went to Umbria and had a similarly spectacular time. Throughout, Cannon was considerate and professional - a pleasure to work with! I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone who would appreciate the care and attention of a true travel professional!

Superb. Cannon closely watches details (e.g., air travel changes, confirmations of reservations, on-site activities that may affect the hotel stay and the like) which is something we much appreciate. We have been working with him for years and intend to continue for years to come. On a scale of one to ten, with ten being the highest, Cannon scores a ten!
