Thank God for SPG hotel pillows, definitely makes the difference in my sleep. Now I have 3 at home, 1 more and I have a whole set for my bed at home. All I need is that hot front desk guy. #lifegoals

Best SPG spots for a honeymoon?
When is redeeming SPG points for a weekend hotel worth it? I may have just traded away my points for a bad deal. 10K a night for a secondary city (think Cleveland or Detroit).
No availability showing at SPG property for my exact dates, yet two separate searches prove availability open across needed dates. Any luck talking to property directly as SPG Plat to force the res?
SPG question - when you lose your platinum status at the end of the year, do you lose all status or just get downgraded to spg gold?
Best Hilton property in Chicago?
Thoughts on what the best 50-night benefit is for SPG? Deciding between one free night, 10 suite night awards, or five elite qualifying nights (putting me over 75 nights).
Got the presidential suite at the Sheraton in Nashville... only to soend 12 hours at the client and to come straight to sleep LOL.
Corner king suite at the Ritz Carlton this week... Sure could be worse! I'll surely take these opportunities when I can get them
Amex Offers for this month: Spend $300 at Allen Edmonds, get $90 off (automatic statement credit). You need to "add to card" and it's available if you have SPG Amex

I am now top 50 guests at a twenty year old Marriott hotel in DC. I now get free valet parking 😜
Anyone stayed at the Sheraton Los Cabos? Or recommendations for any other Carribbean/Mexico SPG that's 12,000 or less per night
How long does it take your Marriott points from a stay to show up in your account? I feel like spg is immediate right after check out but it's been 2 days and nothing.
Guy sitting in front of me on the plane is bragging about how much he travels to the lady next to him. He just pulled out his phone & showed her his Marriott app and said "I travel quite a bit". #smh
Staying at Westin O'Hare - hotel is packed... I begin to worry about gym being over utilized.... Find out it's a Star Trek convention... No longer worried about the gym being full.
Pretty sure I'm about to watch a guy get cut off at the hotel bar in the JW Marriott Chicago
What's up next week in Dallas? Usual Marriott Renaissance is booked so is like all of their properties? Oh well, Ritz it is!
Being sick abroad sucks, but the hotel you stay at makes all the difference. Glad I opted for the Ritz.
I'm convinced Pepsi is still in business because of Marriott hotels. Ugh. How hard is it to switch to Coke products? *First world complaint I know...but Diet Pepsi/Pepsi is awful*
TFW you check-in to Westin Today (Tues) and they remind you your reservation was Mon-Thurs/now cancelled...*insert cursing thoughts at self*.. Plot twist they change it free of charge 💪🏼👌🏼 Win!
Complained about room service that made me throw up at the Sheraton and they're asking me how many SPG points I think are fair for them to give me... Any advice?

Staying in St.Regis with the ocean view, I must say I now feel like I'm staying in a nice hotel.#thanksSPG

W, St. Regis, or Las Alcobas in Mexico City? Also open to high-end boutique hotel recommendations...
Who here stays at Luxury hotels on engagements? E.g. Four Seasons, St. Regis, Ritz, Park Hyatt etc.
Don’t forget to spend your $100 Marriott voucher for Ambassador members by 1/31. Just received my box of chocolates because nearly everything else on that site was out of budget
Recommendations for SPG/IHG in Kyoto or Osaka?
Do SPG suite nights expire? I chose the 10 suite nights as my reward for 50 stays last year, and am wondering if I should be in a bit more of a rush to use them
Holy crap, did you guys know Marriott and SPG were merging? There are integration issues on day one too! GTFO!
Has anyone been sent a package from Hilton for hitting 100 nights? I received an email from FedEx that a Hilton address was sending a package, within a week of hitting 100 nights on the year.
Also concerned about lifetime. I'm hoping they stick with Marriott's lifetime requirement and carry over SPG nights
I’m sooo sick of Marriott from the Bonvoy situation. Anybody have luck transferring to Hilton or Hyatt, getting status match?
Hey guys, do you know what’s the use case for the phone in the bathroom? I’m comfortably seated in my newly refurbished SPG preferred room and I wonder why they kept the phone in here 🚽🤔
Apologies if this was answered earlier and I missed it. If you had to choose Marriott or SPG going forward which one would you choose & why? Lifetime Platinum in Marriott, if that matters.
Does anyone have the new spg/marriott platinum number? The number in the mobile app doesn’t get me to any representative!
It's 8 am EDT and I am already bored of the number of posts below talking about Marriott and SPG merger. HAPPY FRIDAY!

Currently platinum on Marriott. Don't have anything on Hilton but need to book Hilton for next week, where can I find any offers/deals?
About 3 stays away this year from making SPG platinum. Can get there by spending 12-15k on low category hotels over coming month. Worth it?
Turnaround time for Consultant position under Deloitte GPS? Had final round on Monday. Everything went well Deloitte
Best SPG / Marriott for a Denver weekend trip?
Currently in the US but interviewing for a UK-based firm and role. The comp level they are throwing around is £250k TC. Is this reasonable for a Director-level role with 12 YOE? My comparator would be wait 18-24mo to become a consulting partner - in the US that starts at $450k/£325k. For the purposes of this question, assume I’m optimizing for initial comp, not long term potential, and not livability, Intl experience, WLB, CoL etc. Thanks!
Peeps I have H1b till Sep 2021 but my passport expired in Sep 2020 and along with it my I94. I had already renewed my passport back in Feb but haven’t left the country since. I read online that my presence in the USA is unlawful and staying here unlawfully for more than 180 would bar me from entering US for 3 years. What are my options ?
Hey everyone, so my sister and her boyfriend have both gained about 60-70 pounds since COVID started. I’m getting very concerned for them and I’ve seen firsthand how they’re developed awful eating and drinking habits and they hardly ever exercise. I’m very concerned for them, but I have no idea how to talk about it with them and not make them angry or hurt. Any advice on how to have this difficult conversation?
Any rules of thumb for sick teammates on an engagement? Member of team showed up sick and from being in the same room as them our entire group is now under the weather.
Still hoping to purchase Hilton Honors points! Ideally looking for 150k, but fewer will help as well. Hmu if you have some to sell!
Real talk. Why doesn't Uber have a loyalty/points program? (Besides VIP, which is a joke.) I created a new budget category just to delineate Uber from other travel. Obscene how much I spend.
Curious the pay difference. What general pay range (US) can someone with 3-5 years of PMO/functional consulting for SAP S4HANA Cloud & On Prem experience expect at a big 4 firm with an MBA(not that having the MBA matters a ton)?
Cleared first round and my on-site is next week. It just came to my notice something about visa sponsorship in JD. It states “This role is not eligible for immigration sponsorship.” I have H1B but I would need H1b transfer and GC sponsorship. Can anyone help me out here.
May is Mental Health Awareness. My memoir is being published this month.”My Crazy Summer: God, medication and me”. It tells of the stress of working in consulting and shows there is hope and light at
I have interviewed in BNP PARIBAS and got selected, final HR interview also done. Submitted documents on 5th sep including salary slips, ctc breakup, etc. How much time does it take to generate an offer letter.
