I too find the "there's no room in the bathroom" to be BS. It might be tight but it's bigger than a seat. I guess if you have to change the baby outside the bathroom, throw down a blanket on the...

You really can't lump Athens in with Rio de Janeiro. In my 50 trips or so to Rio, I've seen every type of crime, including muggings under the canopy at the entrance to the JW Marriott. While there...

To put it more bluntly, unless you and the wife and kids are into hookers, scratch Pattaya off your list. The concept of driving a rental car to Pattaya is just plain funny :-)

I am heading to Rome this summer and some of the connecting flights from both Frankfurt and Munich are apparently wet lease aircraft from SunExpress. How's the service on these birds? I'll be in...

Most will use their passports or national ID cards from wherever they're from. The rag that is the Washington Examiner only gave a list of some IDs that a US citizen would use. There's no mention...

Ask for a bucket of ice to be brought up every few hours to keep your bottles cold, and I'll bet they will relent on the $50.00 charge.

I've had similar issues in Amsterdam, where they refuse to...

You don't get bottled water in legacy Marriott limited-service props in the US. At least not free bottled water, in Courtyards there's frequently a liter bottle for sale for relatively high price.

I'm leaning towards the Courtyard at 80 Euros a night. I posted in the Courtyard thread, but do you happen to know if the multi-day Rome transit cards include travel on the overground rail lines...

That really is astonishing on the central air. I've stayed at European hotels that didn't have AC at all and it's miserable in the summer. I remember a big heat wave in Germany in May 1998, when it...

Slightly off topic, but if you have a multiday or week pass for Rome Metro (whatever it's called), are the overground trains included or is there a separate charge? Tickets are cheap, like 1 Euro to...

I'm considering staying here in July. Can anyone update the current situation with the heating/cooling units, at least as it pertains to summer? Are they still shutting the AC off at night, or...

I don't know if they still have them but US Air had these weird seat belt airbags in the bulkhead seats on the A321s. Besides being impossible to actually use the seatbelt without an extender - the...

So the concept is that if the plane crashes and your legs are crossed, you might break them? What is the likelyhood that, if the plane crashes, you would still have your legs crossed? About zero,...

Go around people like that. I do that on occasion, if the person in front of me is moving very slowly. Once I get my bins I take under 30 seconds to get everything situated and ready to go through...

Swiss and Austrian are very strict on the weight front. That said, they give you a tag and tell you to leave your bag at the bottom of the gangway. I always pull the tag off and board with my...

I provide positive feedback every time I pay for a night's stay. Bribing people to do the job you're also paying them to do is not a great strategy, and certainly not one many would subscribe to.

It's for us who are grandfathered in as being Life Plats at Marriott before the plans merged last year. You are either LifeTit now or you never will be.

They have no idea if the wine will stay in Canada or not. You could easily give it to someone outside Customs, or sell it, or do anything you want to it. Carrying it to US Immigration is just one...
