No shuttle. There is a public bus, but the stop locations are not very convenient. I recommend a taxi - the fare will be very affordable.

My concierge called me with the EXP offer just last night. I actually thought I was "not on the list" since it had been so long. I inquired a month ago with my concierge and the Globalist line, and...

Some differing data points, so YMMV. Some say this is only offered on paid stays and not award stays. I recently stayed at the end of December on a combination of paid and award nights and was...

At the GH Fukuoka now. This hotel uses the hardest mattresses I have ever encountered (and I have stayed at dozens of Japanese hotels). The mattresses could almost pass as planks of wood. I asked the...

Not normal. I've been told on multiple occasions by the Globalist line that upgrade inventory for TSUs is identical to standard suite inventory for cash bookings. (NB: upgrade inventory for points...

Design/feel: Ritz Tokyo is more of a modern classic, while the Andaz is newer and has a sleek contemporary feel. Obviously subjective, but I give Andaz the edge here for a more unique experience....

[/size]

I say go with GHT since it sounds like your family would make good use of the lounge. It's a comfortable space to relax (mitigating the lack of suite availability), and the F&B is...

For these priorities, I would recommend GH or Centric. GH is a nicer hotel and I loved the DSU suite there (not sure about connecting rooms, but worth calling to ask). Centric is not as nice as the...

While the Andaz Tokyo lounge is decent, it's worth noting that the GH Tokyo lounge and HR Tokyo lounge offer much more substantial F&B in the evenings. In particular, the GH Tokyo lounge may have one...

As expected, this is consistent with what others experienced in January 2019 (i.e., the spend counter did not reset).

However, based on what multiple agents have told people recently, the question...

At this property, club lounge access is coded into the room key. If your kids change rooms to a standard room after the 4th night, I would expect their room keys to lose lounge access.

The Guest of Honor receives the night credits, not the booker.

I would expect the 10% points refund to go to the booker's account.

Based on your travel plans (30 nights/year), 1.5 years of Globalist + 1 Category 1-4 certificate is definitely worth more than $500.

I'm wondering whether the crowd is mostly people who live in Seoul and want an urban escape? Or people who live outside Seoul and visit the city during holidays?
