I’ve heard that Ritz Carlton has corporate discount codes that can some times bring the price down by 50% or more.

Can anyone verify this and if so where can I find the codes or could you share them?

It would be very helpful to host meetings in the same place I’m staying (hopefully)

Thanks!!!

Has anyone used Marriott points at the ritz Turks and Caicos? Worth it? It’s 416,000 points for a 5 night stay, meaning it’s like 104k per night with the 1 night free.

Seems in line with other high end Caribbean offerings (eg. Ritz Aruba) but also that’s awfully high.

Looking for NYC hotel recommendations for a wedding by Central Park. Ideally with some type of view for first look photos and the like.

Anyone got x2 base points from Bonvoy?

I made a “milestone stay” at Ritz in LA when I hit Titanium last month. While I was welcomed by some macarons and a personal letter, I wasn’t informed that the stay would double my base points (I spent $2k in room charge, which got me 40k base points instead of only 20k).

Is that a discretionary move by the property manager, by the Bonvoy team, a stated policy or just a technical glitch?

(of my last 6 years of travelling I never got x2 points)
