We've had mixed stays at this property - very rarely an upgrade (out of probably 200+ nights stayed here).

But they did fit us in recently when they were overbooked - a last minute reservation.

Explorer Club Visa - no Club membership after 6-8 weeks?!?!?

Was just refused entry at U.S. Airways Phoenix club (they were pretty rude about it too), because I don't have the Club membership card.

Wondering how long it takes to get the United Club...

Denied entry @ PHX US Club

Just refused entry at the U.S. Airways club in Phoenix, despite the "United Explorer *Club*" visa card and United on the phone were available to confirm that I was a Club member.

Just remember, anything booked with Expedia has little or no meaning to the actual hotel. I'm having the worst stay ever, and the hotel blamed me for using Expedia (I'm at Caeser's Palace in a...

Second week running at this property. Last week's stay was nice. This week, on NYE was not so good (and it's not over yet).

Really nice hotel. I stayed at the Villas one night and the Resort and Spa the next night (due to being sold out in both properties; all I could do). The Villas were nice, but I think the Resort...

I kept reading about the *squeeze bottles* and didn't really understand what people are talking about.

But although this is a small point in the scheme of things - if you are paying $400+ a night...

Yes, agreed, using the status is the best part of being Platinum. I understand the benefit of getting another status, but then it gets out of control. How can you keep up both each year. Way-too...

I was given a Tower Suite on the 41st floor, which I think is the highest level in the place (42nd floor is PH with pool etc.).

Front desk staff are very knowledgeable about Platinum guests and...

Nice place

Hi -

Just finished a two-night stay at LPM using cash and points. You can't beat the value, last minute booking $90 plus 4800 points a night.

As Platinum, upgraded to Tower Junior Suite...

Just wondering if I'm alone in my quest to collect a room key from every stay at a property?

I started this about a year ago and have about 70 so far. I'm now posting about it, because I...

I think just three properties:

W - NY
W - HK
W - SF

I really like the W brand.

Need to try the new W in Hollywood, though I've heard mixed reports from a Platinum upgrade standpoint.

St. Regis I don't know first-hand, but friends say that it's really difficult to get upgrades at the local one in Dana Point.

Is everyone pretty much taking the system wide upgrades instead of the 25,000 miles?

I worry I am not going to use all the upgrades, but I guess they can be traded or I can sponsor other people?
