Since when is the lounge closed during the week? Granted we go in July every year but it has never been closed.

You say you emailed the Globalist desk so I assume you are a Globalist. If so, you...

I cant imagine staying at the Ritz over the Westin but it might fit you more. Plenty of kids at the Westin and pool area fills up fast though we always found a spot. We had the island view the first...

We inquired about the cabanas and when told it was $600 I laughed in the guy's face. I'm not sure what Id pay for it but it sure as hell isn't $600

Wow. From no fees just a couple years ago to this. These fees ensure I'll always book with points to avoid the resort fee and I've been lucky to have Globalist friends book Guest of Honor stays to...

I wouldn't bank on an upgrade, a lot will depend on how full the resort is and if there are Plats and such. Stayed twice as a Gold and first year no upgrade. Second year I did get one but I emailed...

Just for fun I decided to look at award availability. I didn't see any Biz seats and very few econ seats on EF. Has this gone from a reliable use of AA miles to a pipe dream now to snag a couple biz...

There's a private trout pond that is much more reasonable in cost than the charters. Sure, you aren't catching wild fish but 4 & 5 year olds don't know the difference.

In 2014 I paid 18,000 XPF for a Panoramic OWB and requested and received room #87. Loved it. No sure Id pay 35,000 XPF but I would pay 20,000 to secure an OWB and put in a request for a room further...

We've found that the Hyatt is a great base camp to access trails and such. Much quieter and laid back compared to South Tahoe. We've never had...
