Question? I just stayed at Westin Georgetown. Used self parking, paid 48$. I got home and got a bill for 56$ for each night of parking: i called the Westin Georgetown 4 times but each time i end up in a foreign country and get hung up on. Any thoughts how to get money back or get a hold of actual hotel? The phone number leads to a series of handoffs. Thank you.

London hotel help. Trying to decide between the Millennium Glouster St in Kensington vs. the Westin London city which is close by the Millennium walking bridge. Both are close to tube stations so it’s more about where to call home base for 4 days. Our activities are across the city so I don’t see one being better than the other. Curious if those who have done the tourist thing in London with kids have opinions. Thanks.

Vegas 🐠 - I am planning a two night vegas trip in March where I plan to use points. I was originally just planning to book the Cosmo (most expensive option) but in terms of $/night and cost of points the Westin provides the best value by a considerable bit. Is the cosmo worth it? Or should I book the Westin.. we’re talking $100 more a night if I were using cash but points are twice as much at Cosmo.

[NO POLITICS] Okay so I am unclear about the discrepancy in stats Being thrown around. I’ve seen in other posts people saying COVID has a 99.7% (or something like that) survival rate but then I see the stats from Worldometer and 7% of closed cases resulted in death. The latter makes sense because I would think the survival or mortality rate would be calculated by dividing the qty of each outcome by the total closed cases.

Can somebody explain what I am missing?
