English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. spot

    Whatever mars the beauty or completeness of an object is a blemish, whether original, as squinting eyes, or the result of accident or disease, etc., as the pits of smallpox. A blemish is superficial; a flaw or taint is in structure or substance. In the moral sense, we speak of a blot or stain upon reputation; a flaw or taint in character. A defect is the want or lack of something; fault, primarily a failing, is something that fails of an apparent intent or disappoints a natural expectation; thus a sudden dislocation or displacement of geological strata is called a fault. Figuratively, a blemish comes from one's own ill-doing; a brand or stigma is inflicted by others; as, the brand of infamy.

    blemish, blot, blur, brand, crack, daub, defacement, defect, deformity, dent, disfigurement, disgrace, dishonor, fault, flaw, imperfection, injury, reproach, smirch, soil, speck, stain, stigma, taint, tarnish

  1. Jeff Zalaznick:

    Nick McCabe said. The city’s hotels, meanwhile, are making big moves to accommodate the increasing numbers of luxury consumers. Last month, Aria introduced a luxury collection called The Tower Suites. Guests travel to and from the airport in limousines, they’re greeted at curbside and there is a dedicated entrance and private VIP lounge for speedy check-in. As soon as guests book a stay, the Tower Suites concierge reaches out to book dinner reservations and arrange show tickets. 5 best shows to see in Las Vegas This fall, Encore at the Wynn completed a design refresh, updating all suites to include push-button electronic amenities. It added custom linens and floor coverings and commissioned an amenities collection from top-of-the-line cosmetics and fragrance company Molton Brown. Meanwhile, Caesars will mark its 50th anniversary in 2016 with a $ 75 million renovation of its Roman Tower, which will be renamed the Julius Tower next month. While the behemoth resorts expand their luxury offerings, smaller boutique properties that offer a more intimate upscale experience have been opening. Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace debuted in 2013, and Delano Las Vegas and Delano Las Vegas opened last year. One of the smallest hotels, the Parisian-themed The Cromwell, opened last year with only 188 rooms, all with hardwood floors, glamorous boudoir lighting and chaise lounges. Guests are invited to a Moet Chandon toast with the general manager on Friday and Saturday nights. Ultra luxury packages at new Drai’s offer fireworks and private jets But Vegas ’ biggest draw might be its endless bounty of celebrity chef-driven restaurants. Recent eateries from boldfaced names in an already saturated market include three-Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse’s Rivea at Delano Las Vegas, two-Michelin-starred Julian Serrano’s Lago at Bellagio and two-Michelin-starred Michael Mina’s Bardot Brasserie at Aria. Two popular restaurants from other cities have just opened outposts in Delano Las Vegas. In October, the New York City hot spot Carbone( whose fans include Michelle Obama and Kim Kardashian) opened at Aria. Just like New York, Delano Las Vegas is Delano Las Vegas. We try to differentiate ourselves by not only serving excellent food but by creating a unique experience.

  2. Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna of Russia:

    If Mrs. Anderson had indeed been Anastasia, Queen Marie would have recognized her on the spot. ... Marie would never have been shocked at anything, and a niece of mine would have known it. ... There is not one tittle of genuine evidence in the story. The woman keeps away from the one relative who would have been the first to recognize her, understand her desperate plight, and symphathize with her.

  3. The Norwegian:

    They say this is a game you can do for a long time, even though I'm in a spot where I've got a lot of opportunities, it's not a sprint, it's a marathon.

  4. Dee Griffin-Stevens:

    He found the baby sitting right in the middle of the parking spot.

  5. Kevin Lathrop:

    Unlike other companies, we’ve tailored our technology solutions to help manage our sweet spot -- small and midsize businesses, we don’t need the same technology as a company that manages the logistics of Fortune 500 companies.
