Does getting upgraded at ritz properties ever happen if booking on points? I’m assuming no since they do not accept suite nights but would calling ahead to inquire help?

Yup got upgraded at ritz in Europe, booked with points.

Did you ask for an upgrade or just received one upon arrival?

I just stayed at a Ritz on points and asked for an upgrade. When I checked in they said they moved me up one room class but I really couldn’t tell since I had never been there before. Titanium status also got us complementary cappuccino with the $28 breakfast we had to pay for.

Sadly you don’t get free breakfast with any status at the ritz nor access to the lounge

Just stayed as well on points+cash, it was holidays so of course it was pretty packed, no room at the inn for upgrades. They offered 100.00 statement credit or 10k bonus points as comp.

Yes it was the first I had seen it too

I stayed at the Ritz in Half Moon on points and was upgraded to a villa. But they had a wedding that weekend so I think I lucked out. Maybe the bridal party had blocks on rooms.

Anyone have any experience in Japan I am booked in Tokyo and Kyoto?

Titanium and Ambassador Elite members are entitled to upgrades to suites if available at Ritz properties

Is Real Estate going to keep going on a tear for the medium term -i.e. 5 to 10 years? How does it make sense that rents go up like ~5% yoy and prices go up way more yoy. Cap rates are so thin already. Rates are obviously low also but how is this sustainable?

Read in a recent Morgan Stanely report that re is only leveled 5% v. 40% in 2007-08 so there's still room to grow but really? Trying to do some 1031s but might just keep the cash maybe...
