There will be a new Autograph Collection property opening in April that is just a couple of minutes walk to Takeshiba Station and should have the best access to the Tokyo Bay Zone. I am guessing a...

The difference is that Tokyo has less than a fifth of the Western style four and five star properties that London has. There could easily still be a shortage at the top end, which makes me think it...

I forgot about Mauna Kea. After the RC Kapalua, that would probably be the most luxurious Hawaiian property left in the Starriott system.

The highest end Starriott property left would probably be the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua in Maui, but that is also being sold. I don't know what its future holds. There really aren't any other luxury...

No, that's still totally different. If Marriott truly got it, they would be experimenting with awarding points for F/B purchases during stays with brands that don't currently do so. You simply have...

Yeah, but those two brands make up more than 20% of Marriott's current total property portfolio. And then you also have the nine brands that give points on room rates only, which makes up more than...

The Monarch Beach Resort.

It looks like it's dropping its flag completely.

Interesting.

My main point, which still stands, is that the conversion will be at the fixed value both companies have of their respective points. It's the single most sure thing in the merger...

Yep, that's exactly right. Although we don't know the magic formula used to calculate the value of a point, it's really inconsequential. All that matters is the end result of what Starwood values...

I think this is extremely unlikely. I just don't see a corporation purchasing liability at a fixed cost only to grossly inflate its value as a retention expense for Starwood loyalists. Instead, I...
