I know, right? It almost makes Scottsdale a worthwhile destination. But the FS is the best hotel (but with lousy food) now that the Princess has gone downhill.

Casa Fuster. It's a "grand boutique" hotel, designed by Domenech, on Passeig de Gracia where it narrows just above Diagonal, so a perfect location if you like the more modern (19th century) Gracia...

I am getting 25,000, 37,500 (OW), same as before the policy change. LAX JFK random dates. I think that peak load pricing is higher, so I won't go then.

No, actually it's theft of transportation, so it's illegal.

I just say, "excuse me, are you in my seat" because I sometimes make mistakes too and the answer could be "no."

He is probably trying to game a corporate travel policy (they'll pay for business class if there is no economy-plus). I would do the same thing.

About as good as it gets. I usually prefer historic hotels or hotels in places of great scenic beauty, but for a new, luxury, city hotel this was fantastic.

Taj hotels are usually good enough! And that is a fun part of London. (I've paid that much in yucky South Kensington.) At US$310 in central London I'd try it.

I don't like the location, across a highway from the main part of the city. I stay at Marrol's, a beautiful boutique hotel on the edge of the Old Town.
