Just got told by a drunk guy (maybe late 20s) that McKinsey was “super cheap” because we have Thinkpads and not macbooks - this is in the lounge of a Ritz which I learned he’s not actually staying at

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. I'm an Ambassador Elite for Marriott so hoping within the chain. Would love thoughts on Ritz Central Park and JW Marriott Essex House. Would St. Regis have any good views?

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)

Decades ago, mainstream media would claim that we advertisers would work all kinds of calculated witchcraft into our ads; that we retouched the word ‘S.E.X’ into the dimples of a Ritz cracker, etc. Many consumers took it as gospel, while we all know it to be bullocks. We’re too busy getting ANY NORMAL message approved, let alone a stippled naughty word. All that said, have you ever managed to sneak any harmless little thing/word/innuendo into an ad?
