I love the Marriott County Hall - right across the Westminster Bridge from most of the big attractions. Waterloo train and tube stop just behind you. The Shangri-la at the Shard is awesome as well

Grosvenor House was a huge value points wise and is right there in the Hyde Park area. I’ve also stayed at Hilton Park Lane and Grosvenor House beat it in every way.

Just checked, yeah the JW. I stayed on points, cash rate was just too rich for my blood lol! But man it’s a stellar hotel location and service wise!

Thanks! I’m not a huge fan of that area really. Thinking more around Hyde Park and Mayfair/Soho areas.

@D1 the JW or the other grosvenor hotel? I’ve done the JW but it’s always one of the most expensive hotels

Oh I’ve only ever used points there as well. Even off peak it’s a ton of coin. Definitely my favorite, just wondering if the Edition is any better

Is 160,000 points for Ritz Carlton Residences on Wakiki beach too much? Moana surf rider also has the same redemption cost in points. Ritz is $540 per night in March. How good is the property?

Seems like I can never get good redemption rates with Bonvoy points and after a year haven’t been able to use much. Saw that you can sell 100k points on eBay for about $700 after fees...worth it?

I'm about 18 months post-chemo and today I was able to pull my hair back and it finally looks normal. I can't express what a major victory this is! No tiny, stumpy ponytail - a completely normal one. 😭😭 Waiting for hair to grow back from bald is a looooong process & this is a major milestone. The little victories are around - just need to look for them!

Attn: Biglaw associates who get solid reviews and are on track to bill 2100+ hours, repeat after me: “Thanks for reaching out. This sounds like a very interesting deal/case, but unfortunately, I am stretched too thin to take it on. I hope we can find an opportunity to work together on something else.” Repeat as necessary. Hold the line. Create the work-life balance you want by setting a boundary and aggressively defending it. Watch what happens. (Hint: you keep your job.)
