+700 Euro sounds like toi much, even without points

Have stayed there and the W. The meridiens location is perfect for exploring the city, but the hotel itself isn’t anything special. W is an amazing property but isn’t centrally located.

Hotel Arts is amazing. And cab rides closer to city center are cheap and easy. Very happy with this choice!

Just stayed at the EDITION and it rocked. Used all points. Would also agree +700 sounds like a lot. The cotton house or whatever was our #2.

Who cares about the hotel? You’re in an amazing city

So I didn’t get my brother and your sister-in-law a gift for their wedding last February because I wanted to send them on a honeymoon. I thought I’d be able to use my points and really give them experience to remember. But it turns out because of Covid there are limits to the use of points for hotels and airfare. I don’t mind spending my own money, what do you think is reasonable? This is my only sibling.

When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....
