Say, what, very small? I guess thatís a matter of definition. I believe weíre looking at 28sqm for the rooms, and 50-ish sqm for the suite? I wonder how many Hongkongers could fit in an apartment of...

I’ve spent hundreds of nights in HK hotels, and tried virtually every chain. I freely admit that my preferences are unusual (for instance, I don’t mind LM Cyberport). I believe that the service of...

This place is now showing up bookable (from April onward) on Bonvoy app. Seems in some soft opening phase, with only a handful of room types available. Revenue rates higher than I expected, 650MYR or...

Very odd that they don’t publish a list. Is that part of the anti-transparency effort, like removing property email addresses from the website? Or are they simply too overwhelmed or incompetent to...

Agreed. Itís definitely the best hotel beach in Hawaii, and a strong candidate for best beach overall (including drive/walk-to beaches). We had a lot of discussion about this in the original thread;...

Marriott Bonvoy Pointsavers : Reduced rate redemptions [Master Thread]

Coming from the SPG side, I'm not familiar with Marriott Pointsavers. I just spotted the Singapore Tang Plaza with the regular 50,000 points price crossed out, and the redemption listed at 45,000...

It's well known (and has been discussed frequently) that the Regency Suites here suck. The way to go is a high-floor xx08 room (or in a pinch, xx23).

You can't even compare the Hyatt category change to Starriott's now bi-annual bloodbaths. To begin with, Hyatt had a very modest devaluation in 2018 (almost no changes), and now we do see some...

I woke up to cries of devaluation on various WA groups, but looking at the chart, it doesn't look bad to me. There are significant changes in some regions of the US, but even here, some places are...

Exactly. CPRich's assertion, while I assume correct, of course obscures the fact that these devaluation predominantly affect the best value redemptions. It's true, but pointless to those seeking...

4 in 14 months was mentioned in one of my WA groups. I suppose they must have counted it as SPG in Spring, Marriott in Spring, combined program in summer, and now this? So really an exaggeration, but...

I'm kinda surprised to see another devaluation to coincide (sorta) with the start of Bonvoy. This is the fourth one in 14 months, I'm told? I'm not saying some changes aren't justified, I just...

I don't think I'd use the term "luxurious" to describe the GH. If you said you're considering the St Regis, sure, that's luxurious. The GH is an old hotel first and foremost, and basically...

I stay at those two frequently, and restaurant breakfast is not offered to Globs as a matter of course. Did you perhaps have a rate that included it?

I'm not a fan of GH Singapore for a number of reasons*, but it's odd to complain about not receiving a benefit that's not a benefit. You must have been extraordinarily lucky (or "persuasive") to have...

I just spent a month all over Japan and didn't see anything at reasonable prices. Ample stock of Yamazaki 12, but at 19k-29k for the full size, or laughable 2.5k for minis. Did see a fair bit of...
