Good lord. This whole “I only brought 1 bag on so it’s going in the overhead and here’s my middle finger about it” is a bit much. The OP was asking about the ERJ, the plane that can only fit about...

Assuming the hotel would have been 50K for a standard award, then yes this is correct. Mine shows 80K for Koh Samui.

A couple data points on my usage of certs this past winter:

Like Schutzee I had bad issues with trying to "reuse" a cert. In June of '18 I booked for 1 night in Nov '18, and then ultimately...

I don't like resort fee or service fee either, but it is disclosed on www.spg.com.

Looks like the two SPG resorts in Puerto Rico charge Resort Fee ($) while three SPG hotels charge Service Fee...

LM or Aloft

The LM has been my go-to SPG here, on at least 3 prior occasions. I like the hotel, the staff, location, breakfast, etc.

For a stay this June though, I have friends who've booked at the Aloft. I...

+1. Rollaway charges for kids are highway robbery IMO. For US hotel stays, I've been known to just go on Amazon and buy an air mattress sent straight to the hotel. You can get perfectly decent ones...

Thanks for the photos, Oxon Flyer. The evening food seems to be same as always! I'll be there twice over the next 2 weeks and will try to remember to post the hot food rotation.

When I read your original question my comment was going to be that, if there was a significant price difference, go with whichever is cheaper. The reason is that, when we went with our kids at that...

Ha. So true - I had the same thought. FWIW re curry at/near this hotel, I think Madhu's is good but the menu is quite lacking in breadth. Harlington Tandoori right up the street is also a forum...

I disagree. Because the dates aren't fully aligned, I think you will (and should) get 13 nights credit. Credit for 1 room the night of 3/1, and then credit for 3 rooms each of the next 4 nights, 3/2,...

The hotel doesn't have a shuttle but when we stayed last summer they did have a car service that was only like $12 each way. Drivers were great, cars were very nice, and it was so much easier to just...

Fully agree with it being in a much better area, especially for eating, and it usually being cheaper. But it's also still and Aloft, and a refurb one at that. And while it's certainly not...

Definitely YMMV. I boarded the shuttle this past Monday night at T4 and it was half full. We picked up a family of 4 at T5, and the driver still had a couple seats left but radioed that he was going...

I second tds's thoughts. We were there last month and had a great time. All the suites were fully booked (and had been at least a week before our arrival), but they put us in one of the rooms up over...

It's possible, but I wouldn't count on it. I've waited 20-30 min to get through immigration at that time of night before. If you're through quickly, and you get straight in a cab and have them take...
