Heading over to USVI for a 5 nights. Staying in st Thomas (Ritz) looking for recommendations / things to do. Suggestions welcome. A couple of specific Qs 1. Do I need to rent a car? (I would like to visit at John, assuming that's a yes) 2. Reccos for renting snorkeling gears? 3. Are there any amazing dining options in st Thomas that I should consider? Thanks!
Anyone at the Sheraton fishermans wharf?
Who else is doing expenses on an amazing Saturday? I noticed a $50 dinner charge. Damn you Sheraton. I hardly ate anything that night.
Good bye, SPG

Trying to check out from a St Regis property and they’ve added a $365/day “room charge - echannel retail” charge to our bill, it’s made our $1100 bill for resort fees/food/drinks jump to $2960 - any advice? What is this charge?
Has anyone rented workout clothes at the Westin before? Thoughts on the quality/cleanliness?
OK guys, need to head to ATL this weekend. Was hoping to stay at the St Regis and it's TOTALLY BOOKED OUT! what's a close second for area and hotel? Thanks in advance!
Folks who went to Bali - where did you visit? Thinking of 4 nights Nusa Dua (Ritz Carlton), 4 in Ubud, 3 in Seminyak/Jimbaran or Gili Air. Are these worth seeing and am I missing any must see spots?
With Michael Thomas out, who would you replace him with in a PPR league today, TY Hilton or Emmanuel Sanders? Like Sanders but worried about Brees after 4 weeks off.
Best place to stay in Montreal? Prefer SPG but open to other suggestions. Not for work. Two trips planned: one with family, other for bachelor party (if that helps)
Overwhelmed by Westin Suite upgrade. So much space for only me.... My tiny apartment back in Chicago will be ashamed.. :p
Best spg/Marriott hotels in the Caribbean?
Has anyone been close to 75 night platinum and talked your way into it? If so, how close? Debating if it's worth staying at SPG if there are better hotels since I won't get to 75.

Anyone have insight into Citi's WLB and culture? Got an offer to join their Digital team. Comp is basically where I am now (lower bonus percentages actually), but would be more of the work I like (from PMO to product). Culture and work hours will be a huge factor in my decision.

Useful tip: Try to maintain a file where you diligently update notes about all the projects you have worked on, what challenges did you face, your learnings, client/ manager testimonials etc. This will help you in your next interview. It is not humanly possible to remember every single detail.
