Steer clear

The Residence Inn division of Marriott has consistently met our family's needs. The one described earlier sounds like a winner.

Whatever you do, steer clear of the FS Marriott at CSU Fullerton....

I'm confused

I thought the 25,000 EQMs needed to be completed by 12/31/11 to reach gold. I don't understand how flights during January apply to her 2011 total. I apologize for not catching on. Please review the...

Daughter has 22,400 miles toward gold for 2011. If I understand correctly, she needs a 1,300 mile round trip to collect 2,600 EQ miles to make gold. I've tried the ITA software but cannot find a trip...

Budget is now a division of Avis and deserves consideration.

Will this solve the problem?

I, like others here, have had only partial points post on a two-room reservation. On my last stay, I got no points at all, even though the charges were consolidated onto one folio! Even though the...

Just checked two cards

I just called to verify forex fees on Amex Hilton HHonors (basic brown card) and Chase Marriott Visa (non-premier).

Points for incidentals on a Priceline stay?

Do I get these? HHonors gold, if that matters. In fact, what about elite benefits in general (breakfast, etc.) at Hilton properties on a Priceline stay?
