I generally agree with you. I think many people have a knee-jerk "1:3 is bad value" reaction to the transfer, but Starwood points can be extremely valuable depending on the resort, length of stay,...

Is anyone able to see these options right now? I am Silver, and I have occasionally seen availability in the past but am not seeing anything right now. Thanks in advance.

I've spent about 20 nights at Peter Island and have seen a grand total of three children. It must depend on when you go. I have been in January, September, and October, FWIW.

I believe it was formerly owned by Amway, and is now owned by the family of one of the Amway founders. The last time we were there, the owner of the Orlando Magic (and other co-founder of Amway) was...

Getting to Peter Island really isn't that bad, depending on where you're coming from. I've been told by the GM that they are adding more frequent ferry service to/from STT (currently 2x/week) very...

Agree with you that airline status is the biggest perk, but, depending on how much one uses the FHR/Centurion Hotel program, there are some very tangible $$ benefits at hotels like Ritz, Peninsula,...

IMO it sounds like you got a bit too combative than the situation warranted. He was wrong, but that doesn't make your rather extreme reaction ("Are you deaf?") right.

I respectfully disagree with the "Marriott" and "mall restaurant" analogies. I've been to all three Hawaiian Four Seasons properties and have had very good meals and very so-so meals at all of them....

While I agree that a small part of the beach is swimmable, keep in mind that, by my estimation, over 80% of the beach frontage at FS Hualalai is not swimmable due to the lava rock. Perhaps even 90%....

They got slammed by Hurricane Tomas in November. Not sure if that has anything to do with the helipad issue or not. But, from reading some TA reviews, I'd think twice about heading there in the near...

Respectfully disagree. I see a lot of value in having status on airlines upon which I'd otherwise have no status -- booking exit row seats, having a chance at an upgrade to F, etc. And aside from the...

The mid-week flight will be easy enough if you'd like to visit more than one place. I'd worry more about properly setting your expectations for the hotels themselves. To me, the FS Hualalai and the...

At Hualalai, I just wouldn't want to stay in one of the golf course view rooms. It wouldn't be horrible, but it would be away from one of the crescents where the other rooms are (each located near a...

Right. I'm not sure I'd pay that much for that particular property. When we went, we booked one of the lower room categories and got a really nice upgrade through Amex. So for those circumstances, it...

As long as you don't mind "low-key," I'd strongly consider the Four Seasons Lanai, Manele Bay. My wife and I are in our early 30s and have been to the FS Hualalai, Maui and Manele Bay, and there are...

My favorite place is the Peter Island Resort in the BVIs. Great beach, spa, food (for the Caribbean), and I've always thought the service was above-average. It probably doesn't belong in the same...

You lost me at your "bad hair day" comment.

Sorry about what you had to endure, but I think the email to Delta should have been more professional than to include comments like that.

I flew ATL-HNL about 3 weeks ago, which seemed to me like a hybrid of NW/Delta service. Bottom line, I was quite pleased, although I have never experienced the CO service to HNL. I thought the Delta...

Well said. I'm another drop. I was almost exclusively DL prior to becoming Centurion, and now it's 50-50 DL and US for me. If Gold on DL loses what little meaning it has left, I imagine I'll look...

I had an itinerary the other day from SAV-SKB that was pricing out at 165k miles (SkyChoice). Puzzled by why this would be 165k, I price a multi-city itinerary of SAV-ATL-SKB (which was the same...
