Any insight on Hilton’s Legal team (work culture, hours, flexibility, morale, upward mobility, etc.)? Considering making a move. I am very happy at my current company but underpaid (company politics are taking precedent) Seems like a decent opportunity but I am concerned about morale, among other things, given the 2020 Covid layoffs.
Need to book a Hilton and short ~70k Hilton points …. Best way to transfer points there from partner brand or alliance?
Traveling to Orlando with my 2 year old daughter in December. She is into princesses and Minnie Mouse. We are planning to go to magic kingdom and do mostly outdoor rides and experiences. Looking at hotels it’s around $150-200 to stay at a decent 4 star like a Hilton or Marriott. And $600+ to stay at a Disney hotel. I get that the transportation to the park might be a little easier but is it otherwise worth it to stay at a Disney hotel?
My wife wanted to stay at a cabin and not at a hotel, and now is upset that this place doesn't stack up against the Hilton. I want to point it out to her that this was what she wanted, but I am not stupid.
What AMEX card should I get? I have the CSP & Marriott Bonvoy Bold from Chase, and also Schwab Cashback, Delta Blue and Corporate Green AMEX cards (all no AF). Don’t qualify for the bonus with AMEX Gold, so won’t apply for it. I don’t need TSA Precheck benefit. Collecting Marriott points and have status already but open to Hilton too. Any ideas??? American Express
Been recently using the Hilton honors app to book hotels for work. Thinking about using the Chase portal with my CSR instead. Thoughts or input on this?
Ladies, I’ve been invited by my very close friend to accompany them on a fall vacation to Hilton head for a week or two. Recommendations for what/how I should contribute or provide a gift? (Details in comments)
Anyone have a United electronic travel certificate to sale or trade? I have 2 free nights with any Hilton property (Amex).

Going to Las Vegas soon. My friends ar thinking about staying in Caesars Palace. Are there any status matching programs I should look into to get a better deal/upgrades at hotels there? I'm diamond at Hilton and Gold at Marriott. TIA
When you’re booking a hotel in a small town with no Marriott / Hilton / Hyatt, what app do you use to search and discover hotels? Do you book with that app or still go direct to the hotel company?
I have 5 credit cards. I signed up for new during the pandemic to take advantage of massive signup bonuses and may have a few free vacations in the near future as a result. Amex Gold is currently offering a 60k point bonus. Worth signing up? Should I cancel one of the cards I used just for the bonus? I feel like the only cards I use now are my Chase Sapphire and Hilton Amex. Will canceling my oldest card destroy my credit history? I had it for 6mo before signing up for a new card. 2yrs of hist
I am about 100k points short of a 5 night stay at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills (4 nights with points, 5th night is free) I also have ~80K Chase points I want to drop on a really nice hotel for a night in Miami. Would it make sense to convert my Chase points to Virgin Atlantic then Virgin Atlantic to Hilton at a 1:1.5 ratio? Or are Chase points really that valuable and I should keep accumulating them?
Do hotels not give you night credits or points if you book via a third party like chase travel? Wondering specifically about Hilton
Doing 2 nights in Charleston and 2 nights at Hilton head. Any recommendations on food and activities? Going middle of July so we know it will be crazy hot.
First Paris Hilton’s pickle song, now this...😂 https://twitter.com/RealPicklz/status/1406306705948950531?s=20
Marriott vs Hilton vs something else? I want to pick a chain to be loyal to to start getting those points
I have a boneheaded question I’m pretty sure I know the answer to. My partner can’t use my Hilton Honors account for an upcoming stay he is going to book, right? He doesn’t need my discount or anything - was just hoping that he could get my diamond benefits.
Any experience using corporate code for Hilton/Marriott in PR? Do they ask for identification of employer?
Any Marriott, Hyatt, or Hilton hotels on Cape Cod you recommend that are in walkable areas?

Going to Smokey mtn this summer. What’s the closest and easiest beach town where I can catch a flight back to Dallas. Seems like myrtl beach. Hilton head. Etc. Are all fine but I don’t know what’s good. Traveling with 2 small kids so family hotels would be great.
I'm going to be fully vaccinated in a month and want to plan a Caribbean vacation for the Fall. Best islands to visit? Would love to do an all inclusive, but I have Marriott and Hilton points (and expiring status) I'd like to use.
Hey D.C /nova 🐠 - what are some cool/big companies to work for that’s not consulting or federal govt. (Major ones I know are capital one, Freddie/Fannie, Amazon/AWS, Hilton) . Google typically shows smaller companies. TIA!
Deloitte - anyone have the code for Marriott and Hilton? I am moving over soon but booking hotels for later hoping to use a Corp rate
Hi, do any of you have a recommended Hilton for a family vacation? I’m diamond so only reason I prefer them. We have a 6yo and 3yo and want to do something fun when we get through this school year. Awesome if there’s a kids club so we can also have some time to be adults :)
What do you guys get as your SPG platinum benefit every year? Suit nights are so useless they never clear...
I’m at 760 nights & 9 years as platinum at Marriott…but I was at 750 nights & 9 years last year (pretty sure? Maybe going crazy). Do you have to hit 10 years as plat within a 10yr time span? Or 10 years as plat at any point in your life?
Why can’t they make the Lifetime Platinum status as the Lifetime Platinum PREMIER ELITE status with Lifetime Ambassador support, instead of the regular lifetime platinum?!
Who else is doing expenses on an amazing Saturday? I noticed a $50 dinner charge. Damn you Sheraton. I hardly ate anything that night.
SPG Hotels in India screwing me over by charging mandatory fees and taxes for NYE dinner when I can go party at better places for half the price. #thanksbutnotthanksspg
Are bonvoy discount codes easily shared? I missed making a wedding block reservation and now there are no rooms in the block available - price difference is +$50. Thanks!
Qualifying for elite status is like the myth of Sisyphus - we spend all year rolling our stone up the hill then it's back to the base. #notevengoldyet
Best spg/Marriott hotels in the Caribbean?
Has anyone been close to 75 night platinum and talked your way into it? If so, how close? Debating if it's worth staying at SPG if there are better hotels since I won't get to 75.
Overwhelmed by Westin Suite upgrade. So much space for only me.... My tiny apartment back in Chicago will be ashamed.. :p
Has anyone rented workout clothes at the Westin before? Thoughts on the quality/cleanliness?
Best SPG in Paris or surrounding area?
People that have used their SPG 50 benefit on the bed, is it worth it? Planning to buy a new bed anyway so I'm wondering if that's the right play
If I link my SPG and Marriott accounts , do Marriott nights also count towards my SPG status challenge?
Marriott didn’t let my deliveroo driver into the hotel as “it’s against policy to have outside food delivered”....anyone else had same problem?
Hmm... keep my whole Sunday and fly Spirit Monday morning? Or give up and fly American Sunday night?
I shop at BR and my client counterpart Shops at BR clearly. Some days we will have on the same shirt.....awkward.
What salary (fixed and variable) can I expect at Amazon, Bangalore location for SDE 2 having 9 years of experience. Cleared interview for Big Data Engineer. HR round is pending. CCTC 18 LPA
I’ve gained 20 lbs since COVID started. Don’t think I can fit in any of my pre-COVID work pants. Anyone else in the same boat?
Dear MBB fishes, requesting your immediate guidance on data engineering practice. I currently have to pick one between FAANG vs MBB. Same base but 25K RSU difference. Please help me with your insights! Moving from industry in Midwest region.
Has anyone pivoted from consulting to IB or vice versa? How quickly were you able to pick up the skills for the other role’s interview process / career?
Frequent flyers out of EWR. What’s the TSA-pre line like at Term C on a Monday morning at 06.30? Newbie here... thanks!!
I interviewed for a role for another team within my organization and went on PTO for 2 days. When I came back my director told me I didn’t get the role but there were better plans for me in the near future. I found out from HR after that I did get the role but the organization decided to pause the offer waiting for another one in the near future. How would you react if your Director and company make a career choice for you without consulting with you?
Planning to quarantine w my SO in a cabin for a bit, but it doesn’t have internet and they want to charge us an obscene amount to install it. Does anyone have any portable internet solutions that can handle zoom calls, etc?
Can we not call it TrumpCare or ObamaCare and just call it the Affordable Care Act like it should have been from day one. Stop playing politics with healthcare. People die from this BS.
I’m waiting for the work from home email, like a kid waiting for a snow day announcement.
Which career path will u choose for yourself and why? Options - 1) CXO of large tech co., like FAANG 2) partner with b4/mbb 3) CXO of a unicorn - like stripe or what Facebook was in 2006/2007, with a huge upside when it goes public 4) start a company of ur own that has a decent shot of becoming successful. All the options will make u rich and yes u only have 4 options.
End goal: strategy at a large industry player (auto, apparel, etc) Is it more logical to use the mba to jump right into those companies or use the mba to get into Mbb/tier 2 and then jump?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
If you’re in LCOL or MCOL, is your firm losing people to California firms offering remote work and California wages? I know some have left for Seiler; Citrin Cooperman; CohnReznick; Abbott, Stringham, and Lynch; Frank Rimerman; Green Hasson Janks. Just curious if it has affected your office at all and if you left for one of those firms, what is your experience so far?
Best areas in London to stay? Doing several day trips so a better bang for buck since not there much is ideal. Prefer Marriott or Hilton
How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it. I decided I wanted to explore securities law a little more broadly and not to pigeonhole myself. The firm I’m at is great—doing sec lit—but has zero work in that niche area that I liked. I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx
Any tips for developing a book of business, particularly in management-side Labor and Employment? For example, any networking groups or organizations that have been helpful (and were they legal-related, general industry, or community groups like Junior League or non-profit Boards)? I’ve talked to some of the male partners in my group, and many of them got lucky through pre-existing relationships (college friends, brothers-in-law, etc.). I need to expand my network but want to maximize returns.
