That’s actually quite funny.

But isn’t that what so many assume I have already—with one of the supposedly rare amazing Ambassadors who almost always has gotten us suite upgrades and far too often upgrades even to the specialty suites—even when our hotels have been sold out? Not to mention the spectacularly amazing service and treatment that we’ve enjoyed throughout almost every property, regardless of the upgrade? Heck, even the RC Kyoto upgraded us in May—months before the integration—to the 3rd best specialty suite in the hotel even as we were on an award stay! So the actual status can be just as amazing as the actions taken by amazing Ambassadors.

That must be why I call my Ambassador so spectacular: she’s like Captain America with her unobtanium shield to protect and help me! Except I get her every year, thankfully.
