Click to view contentSince all signs are pointing towards 2018 as being the year of the merge, as well as the “Year of Explanation of Upcoming  Benefits” (with changes to become effective in Jan 2019), I thought as a Marriott lifetime platinum premier member, it would be sensible to experience maximum Starwoodiness this upcoming year, before everything becomes… (Show more)

I have a weekend stay coming up in January at  Hotel Downtown Portland Oregon | The Nines, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Portland , I see mixed reviews on other sites, wondering if anyone has experience at this hotel.  I am also confused on their current Benifits, sounds like they no longer allow PPE in the lounge, you have to book a room that… (Show more)

Having purchased a timeshare from SPG, we were offered the ability to purchase rewards points at a discount rate. It's still a significant cost at $2,275 for 330,000. I thought it was good deal for purchasing future airline tickets, but now I don't think so.    When I went to Europe in 2016 and using SPG points (pre-merger) we transferred points… (Show more)

Now that the points have posted...   I got 1,200 from SPG and 2,200 from Marriott for 3,400 points (not merged yet). Not a great haul, but my 4 and 5 year old enjoyed playing the game each night so bonus from that point of view!

I know Marriott clarified that Category 8 starts in March 2019. I have not found clarification that peak season dates start then, or January 1. The language is usually vague "Starting in 2019".    Any official clarification? I'd like to book a ski trip for early 2020.

With 2018 winding down, it seems like a good time to look back. No, not at all the issues we've faced with Marriott. Instead, I'm curious what Insiders accomplished related to Marriott this year.   Some suggestions might be  Reaching a new Lifetime elite status level A personal best points earning year Redeeming more points/night than in years… (Show more)

Since IAHFLYR, trippin', pluto77, and a few others have been having sporadic aviation discussions in threads that have nothing to do with aviation, I thought I'd at least steer those discussions into it's own discussion thread.  communitymanager, perhaps we can start an aviation enthusiast group?  In the mean time, this will be our home for all… (Show more)
