The object is to be on the beach or in the water. If you are planning on going into town a lot, Westin. If you plan to beach it, Ritz. Don't miss stingray city!!

Ritz but go to the Westin for brunch on Sunday. It's better

With kids - westin. Without - ritz.

What are the point totals? I found a low $235 per night rate for the westin, so the Westin may be overvalued if your planning to use points instead of $$

It is. It's $270/night for doubles at the Westin vs nothing lower than $700/night at the ritz.

Westin, way better frontage than Ritz and much less crowded.

Ultimately I want to have my own practice, but my dilemma is that as a 3rd (cont.)

Anyone leave before their bonus (before knowing what the amount was) and then regret it when it turned out to be a huge bonus? Got a great offer that I want to take but feeling FOMO by leaving the bonus on the table. And yes, I tried moving the start date and asking them to cover the lost bonus but they said no and it’s still a better offer and it would be irresponsible not to take it.
