Has anyone had trouble getting suite night upgrades lately? Every single stay I’ve had at a Marriott doesn’t get upgraded anymore.

Lately? That’s my consistent experience. Most worthless perk offered.

I think one issue is most of the hotels especially in business areas have closed suites due to having cut back housekeeping and or paying an outside company for cleaning. Suites can cost double the price of a regular room for cleaning.

^ this is the correct answer. Most hotels are blocking out suites at the moment from inventory. If you want to have a suit, you can probably call the hotel directly and pay the difference.

Got upgrades to suites (without SNAs) at two properties in the past week, but had to push hard and point out several were for sale before they relented. Switch to Hyatt and don’t look back!

Nah I got a great suite at the W South Beach last week

I always contact them in advance and ask for an upgrade. Normally works for me

Recently received 80k offer for Amex Gold and 150k offer for Platinum. Currently use CSR for travel and dining, which we will downgrade later this year as wife got CSP for 100k bonus (which we might upgrade to CSR to keep 1.5x redemption). Considering Gold for groceries (family of 4) and potentially for dining over CSP/CSR. With groceries, 4x return will just offset AF. Have no exp with MP. Worth getting gold? Can I later (next month) also get Platinum for bonus for when travel starts again?

Hello all,

I’m a recent graduate of masters and currently have 2 offers in my hand.

1) One with CITI Bank with 100k salary and no sign on bonus and as it is in my home town as I stay with my family needs no relocation bonus required.

2) This is with American Airlines in Dallas Fort Worth which offered 100k + 10k bonus + 18k relocation bonus (required)

Which ofer should I consider given I’m a new graduate and this is going to be my first job. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking for some kind of Japanese language classroom environment in the Santa Monica / West LA area.

I currently need classmates and an instructor to motivate me to memorize speaking phrases and practice active conversation. I know there are apps for this type of language exchange, but they're usually 1:1 matches and virtual.
