I've noticed that when selecting the Platinum breakfast amenity (for the restaurant, not lounge, when properties offer), the coupon many Starroitt properties give you now says that gratuity is...

Popup ads when booking

+1. What if instead of a sleazy CK, it had been some sicko child molester asking this 16yo to do something? Do you think it's acceptable to raise a 16-year-old to not be able to say no to a...

I make a point of not looking professional while traveling, just to have this satisfaction! (Even when I'm actually traveling with a suit in my bag)

I'm not saying the CK wasn't a jerk, but it seems a little over-the-top to treat a 16-year-old like a 8-year old. A few hundred years ago 16-year-olds were considered full "adults", responsible for...

Whether a dog would be allowed in the lounge or not of course should depend on whether said dog has Platinum status, or has paid for a Club room or Suite. ;)

Crap, I will hit SPG LTP in 2 weeks and was hoping I would get the metal card. Oh well. At least I will hit LTPP as well.

Um, no. This just means that SPG customers got shafted with the 3:1 conversion ratio that should've been 5:1. Between that and not matching SPG LTP w/750+ nights to LTPP (and 2MM points, but its...

You need to do it just to see what happens. At least, for all of our entertainment. Besides, with a glitch like that you can probably argue for a refund if it's not any value.

The key issue here is obviously the fact that it was the quiet area. If the dog was going to be growling, it should've gone in the other section of the lounge. Clearly the owner needs to train it...
