You accepted a room with a broken lock? Why?

There are a few things I do upon arriving in every hotel room: check the lock before unlocking it, make sure the door shuts properly, check the beds for evidence of bedbugs, and look for stains around the room.

Transitioning to new engagement. Currently Delta Platinum Medallion but United and American have better flights to new destination. Do either have a status match or Big 4 fast track?

My BF of 3 yrs is everything I dreamed of. But, we are very different. I love to travel, date nights, etc. but he rather stay home & not spend a dime. It’s gotten to a point where I am the only one planning things & when we I tell him the plans, he doesn’t care to do it. Once we are out on a date night, he makes it miserable by complaining & wanting to go home. I don’t see myself being with someone who hated doing these things. It has caused major issue. I don’t want to settle..& want to end it.

Is it just me or Marriott is actively trying to kill the SPG brand. Have been trying to reach SPG platinum customer service line - 3 attempts so far, each lasting 30 mins, no success yet.

PMO managers: why do you staff interns/COs/analysts? We’re rarely, if ever, given real work to do and it’s miserable. Do you really just want a good note taker? Secondly why do you like doing them. It seems like babysitting and nothing mentally stimulating.

If you know of an opportunity, I'd love the chance to network!
