W for the views. Westin for convenience

I prefer the Westin. I actually prefer the Sheraton on the river above the W lakeshore. If you're working inside the loop and won't have much free time, the W city center is convenient

Get the Westin on River North

Sheraton on the river anytime!

W City Center gives solid points bonuses for Deloitte. Sign up for that internal SPG newsletter and it usually has one, although it's been a while. Also the Gwen is a pretty nice SPG Luxury Collection property too

Westin is a nicer hotel

The Gwen.

After a hard reset on travel points (got none after Covid and change to industry) how would you start over? Which credit card is best for travel points? Airline? Starwood or Bonvoy? Avis or ?? At one time I had status on most airlines and hotels but I never bothered to focus on accumulating points since it seemed like they were infinite and I booked on convenience. Oh have times changed! I even let go of Amex platinum, just wasn’t worth it to me. Base airport LAX/SNA so no airline pref.

Does anyone have a qualified opinion on this?

Ever have an interview so bad you felt almost good about it? The recruiter started our conversation venting about a referral who was grossly under qualified. This immediately shifted to the agency does not follow industry standard titles. They are all very senior...so I should consider a much more junior role (they hadn't talked more about the role at hand). After talking of my experience they then summed me up as a "media person" and I had to correct that I never worked at a media agency.
