And you were right - no 4pm checkout. Also no breakfast at a property that normally includes it. "Sorry, Covid."

You might improve your chances of the 2-bedroom upgrade if you booked the 1-bedroom to start with. The nightly difference between it and a studio is usually pretty minimal. That being said, they may...

The reason I ask is an upcoming "emergency stay" assisting a relative having surgery. The property is near the hospital and due to Covid waiting at the hospital is not permitted, so the extra few...

Please update me - is the Guaranteed Late Checkout benefit a casualty of the general suspension of elite benefits or is it property-specific? I've searched and found a mixed bag. Thanks!

Thanks for the update. This has been a "go-to" place for years, and frankly the lack of elite recognition is nothing new. We've usually tried to go mid-week to avoid the weekend markup, but have...

Ditto. My renewal (also still SPG) came up a couple of months ago. I called and cited lower travel, yada, yada. They didn't go for it, but suggested I could give up my other Lifetime Gold Amex,...

A couple of the RI and Courtyard properties on the list are real dumps, but I for one will miss the Kauai Marriott if this all happens. It's certainly not spectacular like some Hawaiian resorts, but...

That's what I thought, but wondered if the bonus nights actually counted. Too bad the spend requirement hasn't been suspended (along with everything else:D).

Question from someone else considering same options... If one is within 5 nights of 100 and part of that was accrued with this year's bonus, is there any point to taking the EQN?

If referring to the location at 47 Park, this is excellent advice. We stayed in a large suite here with our son when he was 12 - now 28, and it was memorable to say the least. Suite was huge, with...

We've stayed at this property many times. It's closer to the I-10 business corridor in Palm Desert than to "downtown" when it comes to restaurants, etc. In other words, you'll find more of the chains...

I have stayed at this hotel pre-Covid. They're always expensive - much better value on points IMHO. With the suspension of brand standards I have no idea what level their services are meeting, but be...

Nailed it! I've been shopping rates for our annual trip to MLB Spring Training (I know, optimistic). Hotels I can get for $109 are still 40K points a night. I guess cash talks.

That's a fascinating story and might be a real bargain for the new owner, since it sounds like it's been renovated to some degree. Business there is very seasonal - focusing on the nearby university...

Speaking as someone who travels primarily in North America, I think the "uselessness" comes more from actual suites not being made available. My only upcoming stay later this year is only offering an...

I've spent a fair bit of time in Montreal over the years - always at downtown properties. Here is my simple list of preferred Marriott hotels, based on a formula of cost, quality and elite...

I believe the lounge at the Champlain is closed for a year, but then again you're not missing much.

Members don't seem to have any problem updating their upgrade experience and which lounges are open weekends.

Ah, thanks! I don't visit here that often and thought they'd taken it away. I got my little chunk of metal a few years ago.

Has anyone thought of starting a thread listing which Marriott hotels are delivering benefits? This is something FT is usually pretty good at.

The AA redeposit protocol is more of a minefield if you don't (and I didn't) read the fine print. We booked two tickets with miles for summer travel to an event now cancelled. I skimmed the...
