I've found that all sorts of companies offer something to entice you to book the more expensive cruises with them. The cheaper ones I tend to book, no one has given me anything extra. I book mine...

If you're scared of semen in the soap, you probably shouldn't stay at a hotel at all

While I wouldn't want to use more points and get less, I guess this may go towards making properties like the Thalasso potentially bookable?

Virtue signaling smoke and mirrors through a hot PR trend that is really just a cost-cutting measure.

But to say I won't stay at a chain because of it? Too extreme.

You were doing well at spelling out the basics up until this point. The receptionist made no judgement of how anyone should sleep. The judgement was that a room that sleeps 4 wasn't being given to 2...

Welcome to 2019 where this is "clearly" homophobia. No other possible explanation. Do you have any evidence that they would not say this to a straight couple? I guess neither of us do. So that means...

All I see on their website is a double bed, so I would expect that too. I would ask for the manager as always.

With that said, I would drop the "homophobia" unless you are one to use that to get...

Agreed. Also as someone pro-business and anti-regulation, this is a practice that has gotten out of control. Many businesses are only doing it because so many others are, and want to stay...

I think they dropped the ball with their CC game. Should have had something like this: $450 AF card that gives you Inner Circle and Ambassador (which are likely to be combined in the future IMO), 1...

I won't argue that Mariott has a LOT more aspirational properties. However, nearly every time I have done a like for like comparison, Mariott was more money. Even their low-level Fairfields are...

Multiple reasons. The biggest being 1.) I have gotten the best reward redemptions with IHG. 2.) Mariott is almost always more money than IHG. I'm not going to spend hundreds more on stays for "free"...

FHR is not known for being the lowest price. It's more of a convenience bundle of being able to get special perks without loyalty at a reasonable price.

Having a top tier loyalty at a chain is...

I just booked a ~$250 room for 40,000 points. So I wouldn't use your 50k $150 room as the gold standard. It is a very nice hotel, in a big city, with an executive lounge. It was the one I wanted.

I was debating between all of those on my last Miami stay. Ended up choosing none of them and stayed at the IC. It wasn't beachfront, but I very much enjoyed the location and property itself.

It's a question about what business American Express wants to be in. Are they a premium credit card or a lounge membership?

I would strongly argue they are not in the lounge membership business....

Maybe it's me, but I think this issue is fixed a lot easier than what it has ballooned into. It's a perk of a high-end card that is marketed towards a very specific clientele. Some people abuse it or...

For two reasons

1.) This is how consumers have been trained

2.) They did take away a benefit that people paid a hefty AF towards, and may now be unable to use the product as intended

The room rate can vary. It appears to usually be about half off. F&B credit for hilton-owned restaurants. I'm not sure about the resort fees.

Again, for your last point, it is all part of the...

I hope this turns away a lot of the abusers. Hilton is by far and away the best choice for me. Sure the points may be worth less, but between the massive amount I get, it's still a sizable rebate....

Because it's more than numbers, even though the numbers are still bad. My home airport would be seen as "covered" on this list, but the food options at Airspace are very limited. Meanwhile, the Bar...
