The Ultimate Guide to Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts

While I have mixed feelings on the Four Seasons brand, there's no denying it's one of the most consistent luxury products around. With that in mind, I think FS is every bit as worthy as Aman as having a dedicated thread. [We all know there are #fsjunkies and #fsfotogs out there!]

So, here is my attempt at creating one mega thread dedicated to Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts. I will attempt to do the same thing for Mandarin Oriental in the weeks/months to come.

Obviously, this is a community effort, and I hope it catches. I suspect Kage will start hyperlinking threads/reviews in the days to come. [Or, at least, I hope he does!]

Something like this can only enhance the value of the Luxury Hotels forum. In that vein, I'm going to need some help...

You can add the FS Philly to the leaving list. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/luxur...ne-2015-a.html

As for the others, a search will lead you to dedicated threads on many of these properties. For instance http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/luxur...e-village.html

If you do it as a Wiki, any established member (90 days plus 90 posts) can modify it themselves, if you'd like to reduce your personal effort.

OTOH, if he has the time and the will, it would be great to have master threads on all the properties like we have for other chains like Starwood. Master threads are great because they eliminate having 20 different threads on the same property which makes it quite hard for people to search through when planning a trip.

I know that's a big job and takes a lot of volunteer effort, but it's made some other forums so much easier to work with.

I'm not a huge fan of master threads for this forum, primarily because the actual number of trip reports will be small compared to the posts. It takes time to wade through all the questions and comments to find the three trip reports
