Why do hotel Starbucks have to suck so hard - looking at you Boston Marriott Long Warf... Literally repeated my order 6 times and they still screwed it up.
Her: I'm the assistant GM at the Marriott on Mag Mile| Me: Nice - I'm a rewards member | Her: Oh yeah, what level? | Me: Platinum | Her: Our uber is 3 minutes away. #auditorproud
I am thinking this since morning that if this app was for hotel industry, what kind of posts we might have been getting?? Especially from SPG green choice cleaning crew 😛
I heard that Mariott/SPG is dropping Delta crossover rewards. Are they dropping UA too? Or is UA becoming partner of choice?
Finally eligible for an SPG ambassador, what can I expect? Any particularly good or bad experiences?
SPG-Marriot accounts linked. Status upgraded. http://gifrific.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Mr-Burns-Saying-Excellent.gif
News alert for travelers: Marriott/SPG account linking and status match is officially live🛫🏤🛫
What benefit did you guys choose when you made SPG platinum? Confused between 1 free night/5 elite qualifying nights/10 suite upgrades?
Question that likely applies to many of us newer folk: Marriott / SPG merger info says status match applies to highest "non-promotional status level". Will 18-night SPG plat challenge count as promo?
Has anyone used their 50 night SPG award selection for the "40% Off your Favorite Hotel Bed"? I need a mattress for one of my bedrooms, so I'm considering this option...thoughts/experience? Cheers.
Planning a surprise trip to Cancun for first anniversary. Any hotel suggestions? Right now looking at JW Marriott. Looking for something nice but cost effective (this is also first week of Jan).
So I got platinum in spg because I'm platinum in Marriott but while I get upgrades and late checkouts etc , a host of other benefits won't be eligible. It's platinum with conditions applied
As an AA EP and Hyatt Diamond, I sometimes wish I could find myself a Delta Diamond and SPG Platinum so we could travel the world together.
Is the sapphire reserve better to use at Marriott stays than the Marriott card? 3 % vs Marriott's 50 percent bonus on base points. Can't decide. I will cancel Marriott's card if this is the case.
If I am platinum excited SPG, can I now stay at a Marriott and earn SPG points? Do Marriott nights count towards SPG status?
If you transfer SPG points to your Marriott account now does it count towards lifetime points earned? Can someone test/verify? Trying to hit lifetime status. Just waiting for nights to be merged...
So is there a catch to linking your spg/Marriott number together? I feel like I might be missing something here...🤔
SPG/Marriott account link is live and offering instant 1:3 point conversions back and forth + status match. Wonder how long these remain "separate" like this...
I see a lot of questions on FB around Marriott/SPG points transfer. My take: Link your accounts and stay with the brand which has best promotion ATM, and transfer only if the location you are...
So depressed. Marriott rewards fucking blows.
SPG/Marriott- opens up a whole new points game... do you switch to Marriott during mega bonus and then switch back to SPG until 2018
So if you have SPG do you need to create a Marriott account? To get 1:3 transfer points? Might be a dumb question
Yes, we know SPG and Marriot have merged, and how excited you are that you now have Platinum/Diamond/Kryptonite/Tesseract status on both, which entitles you to free lobotomies. Such excite, much wow
SPG and Marriott finally merged 🙏🏼
Just linked my SPG to Marriott and got platinum status match. Do I need to stay for 75 nights from today to keep the platinum alive on Marriott?
Is ritz different than Marriott rewards? Do I need to create a ritz rewards account and link or will Marriott be sufficient?
Hidden in the SPG merger details: Say goodbye to crossover rewards with Delta / Uber and lifetime status.
Who here is going to stick with SPG/M after the full merger completes next year? And if you're bailing, where are you going and why?
Anyone not linking their SPG and Marriott accounts? Should I transfer points or keep separate?
Sweet! Can't wait to transfer my 380 SPG points to my 45 Marriott points! It's like winning the lottery
Who has tried the Double tree cookie recipe?
TFW your parents say they don't know where you live so you book them into a Westin on points. Welcome home, mom and dad
So I got upgraded to Marriotts Premier Platinum Elite level. Any idea what this means besides getting a gift from them in the mail?
Anyone live in the Ritz Plaza in midtown? Or know someone that lived there? Trying to gauge if it’s a good apartment building, given supposed ongoing construction and location.
W, St. Regis, or Las Alcobas in Mexico City? Also open to high-end boutique hotel recommendations...
Ambassador Elite Status - worth it? I had it years ago but never really used it. And how/when does the intro happen?
Has anyone rented workout clothes at the Westin before? Thoughts on the quality/cleanliness?
W hotel ceiling leaked all over my baggage drenching my business clothes. Need advice from experienced travelers on what to demand from management.
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?!
Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
Anybody done the Hilton Grand Vacations package in Hawaii? Where you sit through a timeshare pitch for 70% discount on hotel. Was it worth it? Was the property nice? Hidden fees?
Fuckers at Ritz Dubai have a mandatory $500/per person for a new year's dinner. Who the fuck would want that mandatory
Came down with the Flu on Thanksgiving Day. I’ve had a 103 degree fever almost nonstop since. I can’t travel to the client site this week. How do I get my Southwest flight & Hilton hotel credited back
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
no swag bags this year for departing GSAPers, what’s even the point if i can’t rock a sick daddy D patagucci at b-school
How do you represent your time consulting on your resume when looking to go back to industry? I've been on the same A&D project for my year+ at ACN. i.e. what do you share about client work?
I'm in final rounds w a large tech company (interview already scheduled), but I saw that the company just removed the job posting I'm applying for on their website. Does this mean they already selected a candidate and I'm wasting my time? Or does it mean they have enough candidate selection for the final round to where if I have an offer, I'm less able to negotiate since the company has a lot of back up candidates. First time leaving consulting so all of this is new to me.
Should I see baby driver or spiderman?

Art Directors and Designers, what does your WFH work station look like? I’d like to upgrade mine to be more robust than just my laptop.
I’m an incoming AC1 at Bain and I have spent the summer studying a bit for the GMAT since we had a stipend. I took it with no practice and received a 640. After studying on an off for a couple of months I received a 690. I’m likely going to cancel the score since I realize it isn’t enough for M7. To provide some more insight on my profile. I graduated undergrad from UofM BBA Magna Cum Laude, have interned in Big 4 consulting, IB, and VC, and I’m an Asian-American. What should I do?
What do you look for when interviewing a junior associate (2-3 year) for an in-house associate counsel position? What are your expectations with respect to substantive knowledge? I have some interviews for associate counsel positions at some later-stage startup tech firms and would love some advice on how to stand out from all the other biglaw junior associates.
Anything you wish you would have gotten done will on maternity leave? Things like getting the baby a passport...8 week countdown and then won’t have time for anything anymore!

Anyone tried to pursue a MBA while working full time and have a toddler? I work in a dying industry and want to jump to tech companies but I don’t know any coding. So I figure getting a MBA could help me switch to a PM route. But I hesitate to quit my current job (I make more than my husband) and I have a 2 year old. Is it doable?
