That's interesting. I'm not a Flying Blue member, and don't see myself ever flying on any SkyTeam airlines. However, are you saying that you can easily convert FB miles into Accor points? If...

I tend to agree. I would suspect such a status would be for those that Accor thought could be influential towards generating additional business. Say, the President of a consulting company with...

I'm not sure I would want to always proactively check the bag. Not all Q400 have identical bins. My normal rollaboard fits in the bins of most, but every now and then, I've gotten one with small...

That doesn't sound right. I've booked rates that were pay for x nights, get 1 free, and have always been given points. If this is a rate available to anyone and bookable right off the hotel...

I'm not sure that's true. The FPC also had a clause in their terms that said you could only earn credit on a "qualifying rate", and talked about discounted rates like travel industry rates or some...

That does look nice!

I was at the RYH again last weekend, for Afternoon Tea in the Library Bar (which is still accessible), and the lobby area is still walled off for the construction. They've...

No, I don't think we're that similar. I'm not normally happy to be in any city. I'm happiest when I'm either hiking up a mountain or skiing down one. I had to go to Mauritius for a vacation a...

Cora's is a breakfast and lunch restaurant chain. While started in Quebec, you'll find them in cities and towns all across Canada. Agreed, it's a good spot for a big breakfast with lots of variety,...

As nice as the place looks, I think I'd go bored out-of-my-mind after just a couple of days at one of these places. I can't imagine going to 7 such island resorts in a lifetime, let alone a year. ...

If you're that worried, go to the Gold desk one day, and down to main check-in the next. I also like to go at a time when it's not busy, because it does take some time for them to redeem each...

I would suggest bringing more than just $1,000 worth of LE certs to Banff. In my past stays, I've been able to go well over that limit. At BSH and CLL in particular, I try to apply $1,000 per day,...

You cannot use a gift card to prepay a booking. The hotel should refund your prepayment upon checkout when you go to use the gift card. Admittedly, I can only think of 2 stays where I have ever...

If you don't mind changing up the order, I'm seeing availability on a couple of random dates, YYZ-CAI-IST-FCO, with the first two legs operated by MS and the last leg by TK. I'm still having trouble...

Still in mid-40s. I like to think that's quite young.

65% of the year is not occupied by skiers, true, but not even close to 65% of the visitors to the hotel. I've been told by my contacts at the hotel, that while the area is busy in the fall to see...

I don't know how the revenue sharing works, but the (non-Gold) suites here are indeed privately owned. You will not see an upgrade to one of them. You will occasionally see the suites listed for sale...
