Marriott properties in Europe often have a Seniors rate better than the best prepaid rate ( at least in the mid range market like AC hotels); I’ve used it several times this year, mostly for the...

From memory, yes trains within the city are included ( I rarely use them but recall the need to do so during a metro strike and I had one of those 72 hour passes). Of course NOT including the...

I’ve just returned to making some Accor stays after a very long break. One thing I don’t understand: when making a reservation through the app, rates and hotel particulars come up ok, but for some it...

Iíve not stayed in summer: my only experience has been end of winter/ early spring, so maybe the cooling works ok. Certainly there are individual controls in the room: but on all my stays ( at least...

I was there at the end March/ early April. Centrally controlled heating was still on, no in-room adjustments could be made ( maybe Ďoffí, I donít recall). It was too hot for me, so I had to open the...

I’ve had good stays at Le Meridien: most particularly when using SNAs. The standard rooms are pretty small though. I’m tempted to try AC and The Ren La Defense as well.

I’m not sure Surawongse would be a great choice for first time in Bangkok, and especially so for one without an interest in “social activities “ ( maybe also true for LeM).
I’d leap at those rates...

I’d happily choose MAN , provided the ticket was cheaper. For the same reason I often end up in Milan rather than Rome.

Am I correct in assuming that SNAs continue to accrue past the 75 night level?, ie 5 at 50, 5 more at 75, a further 5 at 100, so on and so forth? I have 5 more in my account than expected, so I’m...

Well, it’s a nice gesture but frankly I’d prefer it if they gave a choice : eg, tick box A to get the laptop bag, tick B and we’ll give $10 to charity X, Y or Z. I fear that if I bring one more...

I’m at 43 nights ( 28 paid, 15 on points), no CC, no ‘meetings’ and 4,000 USD. So my average spend on paid nights is about $140 USD. Assuming that this pattern continues for the rest of the year, I...
