Going to to Maldives for honeymoon ! Using my Marriott points to book as I’m an ambassador level. Which hotel would you recommend: st Regis , ritz Carlton , JW , or W ? I’m leaning towards the W because it has the best perks for ambassadors. Downside it is the oldest . Ritz and St Regis often feel too snobby and I never get the ambassador treatment at those hotel chains . He looked promising and it’s really new.

Who has points availability? On grail trips like Maldives, etc. this tends to be a major factor

like

Yes ! Lots of availability

JW for sure.

How come !?

Just make sure you budget for airfare to get to and from these hotels. Points will get you the room but it’s still like $250-500 per person round trip to get to the hotel.

Yeah $500usd per person for W and 600-750 for ritz / Regis !

What ambassador treatment is W promising? Stayed at the StR and loved it. Everything from the service to the food and the room was unbelievable. The addl point of consideration is if you do snorkeling/diving. The reef around the resort was still pretty dead when I went a year and a half ago, whereas I heard it's great at older resorts.

They just promised free breakfast and the usual . However , previously staying at St Regis properties I feel like W properties go more out of the way in terms of service (e.g., upgraded rooms) Glad you loved your stay ! I really do love snorkeling so thank you for the update

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
