Planning a trip to Milan. Looking at the Marriott Luxury Collection. Is this in the ‘best’ area? For shopping, museums, attractions, restaurants? Any other hotel recommendations?

You’re next to Milan Central which is great if you want to take day trips to Lake Como and the lakes. It’s 2-3 subway stops (it’s Europe so it’s convenient) to the Duomo and the Montenapoleone shopping district. We stayed at the Palazzo Matteoti, which used to be part of Marriott, but apparently isn’t anymore. Kinda weird/unique property but very nice.

Stay diligent, friends. I just checked one of last week’s hotel bills and found a misc charge for in room dining that I most definitely didn’t use. I wonder how many of us don’t notice these charges?

How can I convince my wife to invest in the market? She wants to keep her earnings in the bank and if I bring it up she gets upset. We are planning on getting a house together next year and I want to position us for financial success. Convincing her to get a credit card was a real challenge and she finally got a credit card this year. Salaries are close but I do really well in the market (40% gains) and I really think I can help us fulfill our financial goals by handling all of this for her.
