Not sure what this means, but the Hilton website now lists this property as "coming soon". I thought I had read that ownership had decided not to reopen. Great to hear, if true.

As I mentioned on another thread, I'm at $16603 EQD and 99,888 EQD. My buy-up offer is $1395. I think that impels me to behave "like this", and do an MR to pick up 112 miles rather than cough up...

DCA vs IAD

In response to the WAS hinterlanders who prefer IAD over DCA, I'll add my opinion, ignoring that I'm fortunate enough to live 20 minute's drive from DCA. I'll also allow that security lines can be...

I also was told to call back on 2/7 to rebook my BUD-ZAG leg in April. So I did, and AA still has no workaround. I was told to try again tomorrow. Since we've already changed the AA JFK-BUD flight...
