This guys correct ^. You need to call the hotel or else they won’t be able to check in without you.

Yes, just book it under your name and add their name to the reservation.

Thanks everyone! I’m looking to gift it to my mom for a birthday trip

That makes me happy. My dad passed away and I am so glad I spoiled him rotten with treats over the years, even though he was more than capable of buying those things for himself. His happiness was enough of a gift. Seeing that guy treat his parents to that vacation at the Ritz inspired me and my boyfriend to send my mom a nice room service treat while she was traveling last. Unfortunately, the hotel forgot the card from us, and she assumed the present was from SPG. 😜

I know someone who used his points at a Ritz to send his parents on an anniversary vacation. I thought that was cool

How long is too long before meeting an SO’s parents? We’ve been together a little over 2.5 years and I still haven’t met them. Part of it is because they’re in India and we’re in the US and covid travel bans won’t allow it, but they have suggested FaceTime and my SO refuses. I think he wants to make sure it goes well but given our trip was planned December 2020 and won’t happen anytime soon, shouldn’t I at least meet them virtually? Am I reading into it too much?
