Best Hilton in San Diego, preferably downtown
Barack is in the Waldorf Astoria!
I have the chance to convert 170,000 Marriott points to cash at their "going rate" of .8 cents to be $1360. Would you do it? My question effectively is, if I have time and location flexibility, is it likely I could find a sweet deal to get more than that amount of value from those points?

How does the SPG credit card free night certificate work? I don’t see anything tied to my account since my August renewal. Want to use it for an upcoming stay but no idea how to redeem.
Good neighborhood/Hilton properties to stay in Cleveland. Also, preferably nearby Marriott would be great as the PM does only the latter! Must visit bars/restaurants (veggie) in CLE?
Realized I won’t make SPG gold elite by the end of the year. Will I have to start over again in 2019 with a balance of 0 or will I still have my 23 nights balance to forward with?
What’s your experience with Marriott’s Ultimate Reservation Guarantee? My hotel called me this afternoon to walk me.
Has anyone tried the Marriott/SPG tribute homes.in London? Looks like Air bnb style, cheaper than rooms and you can earn some points.
I was let go during the pandemic and I 100% believe it was because I had kids and could not work around the clock. I’m enjoying freelance and was recently offered a full time remote position. I’m just wondering if anyone has been through this and has any thoughts about going back FT v freelance. I can’t be sure that my freelance work will hold and FT has its benefits. Would welcome any thoughts or kind words.

If you could ask for anything at your firm - what would you ask for? Caveat: something that is a stretch but realistic. Background: There is some current turmoil and I have been identified as someone they want to stay through it and wait for it to get better. We don’t have many females at the top. I don’t qualify for equity based on current metrics but the metrics used have lots of room for improvement and the current metrics could be “ignored” for me potentially. (Cont)
