Accenture2: having a bad day mate?

like

Dude, @A2, don't be a dick. While we might not consider Sheraton or Marriott to be overly fancy, it is to most ppl. @OP - Good for you. I did this for friends a couple years ago because they don't get to enjoy overly fancy holidays. Can you get them a suite upgrade? Maybe a fruit or other plate in their room when they arrive

Good for you OP! Always a good feeling to be able to spoil our parents

And btw, SPG does have some really great high end properties too, so let’s not assume anything about luxury here. In any case, the gesture is just so amazing. A lot of us in consulting now would never have had the opportunity and exposure in other jobs to even consider something of this nature - so why not applaud someone’s deeply thoughtful gesture instead of being so cynical 🙂

like

A2- you work for Accenture and the regional model, do you even travel bro? W’s are great luxury hotels, Ritz Carlton, The Edition, SPG has the Design Hotels which are typically nice as fuck, JW Marriott, St. Regis. You clearly have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ll take a St Regis any day of the week.

Ask the hotel front desk... They will come up with an idea.... Desserts are always a hit

Good on you OP 🙂 I hope they have a lovely time. If you have an ambassador, let him/ her know and I’m sure they’ll do a fabulous job of making them feel special. Also, let the hotel know in advance that this is a gift from you for your parents and you would appreciate if they can upgrade the room (nicer view or configuration)

like

Lol @A2... ever heard of the Chatwal? Ritz also counts as luxury. Get your head out of your ass

like

A2 - No, I wasn't referring to any of those 4 when I used the term "luxury hotel". Also, luxury is relative. Not everyone can afford Four Seasons either. Count your blessings.

like

Isn’t luxury hotel like Four Seasons... not Marriott/Hilton/Westin?

like

Make sure the front desk knows about this, knows their names and where they’re from, and your parents will appreciate the personal greeting each time they encounter them

like

A2 don't be a dick. Just because we are used to Westin's/Marriott/Hiltons doesn't mean they aren't luxurious to others. OP if you have status and a concierge ask him/her if they can upgrade the room ahead of time. I did it for my parents and they got upgraded to a suite

Get them fluffy bath robes and order room service for breakfast

@A2 Everyone hates your jokes and demeanor in real life. People are just laughing politely.

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.
