Looking for moderately priced hotels in Paris - trying to chose between Moxy Bastille and Courtyard Gare De Lyon. Any thoughts on which is better? Want to do touristy things.
Got asked for my EY badge or business card when checking in tonight - is this a new thing for Bonvoy or just a weird property quirk. I’ve never been asked before in 6 years of pretty heavy travel
So Marriott /ACN time to update grandfathered lifetime platinum premier status. Best wishes and hope minimum screw ups.
Does anyone know how I can speak with someone more senior at SPG? The customer service I’ve encountered is completely unacceptable and I’m tired of being put on hold for 20 minutes with no solution
Has anyone gotten Hyatt to match status other than MGM? Like many fishes here, I am frustrated with Marriott Bonvoy changes and recent experiences. I am Bonvoy ambassador and lifetime titanium and want to switch to Hyatt.
Spending the next couple months in Pittsburgh. Any recommendations between the Renaissance and the Westin?
Would you spend $125 a night for a nice Marriott resort or use 30k points plus $15 parking for average Delta Hotel?
Anyone been to Sardinia? Looking for travel advice: which Marriott property to stay in, activities/day trips, restaurants, wineries, etc.
I booked a hotel stay (at a Marriott Autograph Resort) in Belize for the end of May. Today I get a notice that the reservation has been canceled because the price I booked it at was apparently a glitch in their system. Any suggestions on how to handle this and who to contact? I have left a message with the hotel to call me back. Glitch or not, just canceling my reservation like that is incredibly unprofessional. I had booked flights already.
Hillary why did you choose the Sheraton Times Square as your NYC base tonight?!? That place is literally THE WORST. If you were after the SPG points at least go to Le Parker Meridien, please!
SPG 75 worth a 30 minute commute ? As opposed to just SPG 50. Have double nights promo ATM and could hit it.
Traveling to San Diego for a week next month: thoughts on mission/ pacific beach vs La Jolla vs Del Mar? Solo 27F looking to be close to the beach, not planning on getting a car. Would love any Marriott recommendations also!
Would anyone recommend Hawaii for honeymoon? If so, Marriott recommendations and locations appreciated!
Have some suite nights with SPG leftover, can I now use them at Marriott properties or is that benefit still tied to Westin, W, etc?
FYI: Marriott is offering double points on stays through June. Check your profile and register.
Ah now it did.
Post for likes! 😤

Parents in Consulting. How do you manage consulting hours (50+ hours) with children? What does your schedule look like?
Project is asking me to travel the week my wife is due to have a baby or else get an exemption from HR. Is this normal or is my firm just not supportive? KPMG if anyone is looking to join.
I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
New BCG pay bands: New Associates: 90->100K base (116-126K TC) New Consultants: 165->175K base (207-230K TC)
Pwc fishes, care to comment?
Can someone explain to me why we aren’t just moving to a school system where 1 teacher can zoom class to 200-300 students like a college lecture hall? Why are we bothering with stuffing kids into classrooms
Got asked by my client (senior exec at a bank) if I am pregnant! Don’t know if I should feel happy that they could ask me a personal question or if I should feel bad for putting on so much weight!!🙈
How do people afford 20% down on homes above 500K? Outside of inheriting cash, curious how late 20s early 30s folks find themselves with 100K plus in cash?
Cancel culture is the best and worst thing that has happened to society in recent years. It reminds me of an Orwellian society - everybody is watching and judging every aspect of your life and they will publicly shame you just to make a point of where they stand on the issue …
So with Bain, McKinsey and even now BCG (I’m hearing) vying to acquire ZS, what are the implications for us as ZSers? Top of the food chaining I’m thinking...
What would Trump say if he was a consultant?
What is the cheapest thing you’ve seen someone do on per diem to save money? I observed someone pulling instant ramen out of their laptop bag 🤦🏼♂️
When you date someone and she asks your TC, do you include in-flight target bonus, indicated on the offer letter? Or you only report base?
