If I use a free night award at a Ritz, can I still try to use a suite night upgrade or get an upgrade as an Ambassador, or better to just use my points straight out for an upgrade?

Ritz doesn’t participate in suite night upgrade unfortunately

If you want it, sure. Asking for a manager doesn’t always need to be a scene. You can do it in a tactful way in order to get what you want/ what you’re supposed to be getting anyway.

Titanium and Ambassador are eligible for upgrades to suites (but not ones that include Club access) at Ritz Carlton hotels. As another poster said, sometimes you have to be nice but pushy to get it. I’ve gotten upgrades to suites at the Ritz Bacara in Santa Barbara and the Ritz LA Live. All else being equal, I’d stay at a St Regis or Luxury Collection over a Ritz for the free breakfast (and I find LC hotels more interesting rather than many Ritz hotels that feel like they could be anywhere).

Need some vacation advice. I’m at an all-inclusive that was billed as “luxury”, but food and service are mediocre, the resort is run down, and we’ve had mult instances with other guests making drunken scenes. My wife and I have been doing the all-inclusive route for a while now and I think we’ve come to the conclusion that we need to just go to an expensive, pay as you go resort to get the food, service, and higher caliber of guests. Suggestions on such a place? Carribean preferred. Thanks.
