I stayed there about a year ago. Aside from the obvious marketing oversell of calling it a "luxury hotel", I found it perfectly acceptable. The rooms are fairly standard, the bar is lively, and...

I do suggest a 2-night stay in Anaheim, though, even for a 1-day Disneyland trip. Otherwise you're going to be stressed out either in the morning or the evening, having to worry about storing...

Could it be that, despite unsubstantiated claims otherwise (regarding the alleged affluence of SPG members), that Marriott customers are more likely to pay for suites?

If relaxation is the goal, I'd go with the RC Kapalua. Don't get me wrong, I love the Marriott Wailea, but based on what you said I think you'll enjoy the quiet corner of the island up in Kapalua.

Exactly. There's even a frequent poster on this board who brags about their high-maintenance nature, including pushing as hard as necessary to get upgrades they are nowhere near entitled to. I wish...

Another area where MR was superior to SPG. In the past, when reserving at a Marriott hotel where it shows "1 king / 2 double beds" or whatever, in the room preferences section you just had to put...

After having a Rogue on a recent rental in COS (non-aisle, so no choice unless I wanted to make a stink), I would have picked any of the other vehicles you mentioned. I thought the Rogue was an...

There will likely be tons of SUVs on both the Executive and Emerald Aisles. But something like an X3 is beyond unlikely.

Oh, I completely agree. But then a $50 Marriott gift card costs Marriott far less than $50, too. I wasn't trying to compare the gifts financially, just saying I thought the Ambassador gift was a...

Ambassador, lifetime titanium, nothing yet (but not stressing about it, and won't even if I don't get one). I thought the ambassador gift a few weeks ago was already a nice touch.

There is not. One of the alleged benefits of Fresh Bites is not having to sign a check. So whether you pick up your food in the restaurant or have it delivered to your room (for a flat $5 fee), the...

I see you're from New York. What would you tell a first time visitor who asked you the same about your city? Most likely you'd say, "Come on, man! That's way too vague for me to be able to answer!"...

I'm here right now, and the parking and resort fees remain the same. Call me crazy, but I'm happy to pay them as this place is spectacular. Granted it's the first time I've stayed at a Gaylord, but...

I prefer the Renaissance, but for the basic criteria you listed essentially any of the name-brand airport hotels will be fine.
