My travel fell off a cliff in 2003, but I retained status for several more years after that, until it completely evaporated in 2006 or 2007. I had been a Plat for several years prior to that.

Mrs. JPT and I stayed at this property last weekend. All things considered, I'd give it four (qualified) stars out of five.

Pros:
No hitches with rate, check-in, breakfast or the special package...

Wow, it really sounds like this place has chronic issues. I find it hard to believe that there are still as many issues as there are. We stayed there 2 1/2 years ago and it still seems to have...

My experience mirrors your own; the lower-end properties tend to post more reliably and regularly. Sometimes the higher-end properties can be a PITA about posting properly, especially when direct...

That'd definitely be a plus for me, as I am mobility-impaired. I'm not in a wheelchair, but anything bigger than a curb (or more than one step up or down) is a significant PITA for me.

I call those "invisible disabilities." I had (and still have) one for over fifteen years before I became mobility-impaired.

I can relate to the chemo; about a year ago, my docs gave Remicade a...

I said that I didn't *intend* to do it, but I might someday be in a position where I'd need to or want to do it.

I think the x-ray photo of the little Playmobil pax with his/her junk blotted out is absolutely precious.
