Found a male underwear in my W Dallas hotel room. They knock on your door at 7 30 am for House Keeping, there is just 1 person at the reception with long wait time, and rooms look so tacky that you feel yourself in a strip club. Anything but hospitality. Add to that: dirty windows.

Nope. Same old SPG. I get no love at Marrriotts though.

I haven't noticed any difference. SPG Platinum here.

New to the US, do parents need an invitation letter from us every time they travel to the US. They have a visa but wondering if immigration needs a letter of invitation. Thanks!

Serious advice please! Just turned 29M South Asian living in HCOL. Never moved out of parents home (was supposed to move out few years ago but alas, the pandemic). Economy is worse off now with high rent. I have two options:
1) move out and pay the high rent, not saving much in the end OR
2) stay at home & save money for a down payment (I’ve saved a ton but need a bit more). If I choose this option, I will solo travel every 2-3 months to new countries. All serious advice appreciated!

I joined scaler in April 2019 while getting CTC of 3.5LPA from nagarro wasn't happy the pay but stayed with the hope of learning which faded away in just 10 Months. Wasn't giving much attention to scaler curriculum due to the first job which cost me missing out offers from Amazon, DailyHunt, Travel triangles and much more.
In March 2020, joined Innefu Labs (Startup) and started giving all my time to learning the scaler things in April 2021 got 14LPA CTC from Make My Trip.
