Four points are only like 12k versus the rest which are all 20k and up. I would stay there unless you want something swanky.

Strictly in terms of bang for your buck either Sheraton Brooklyn, Sheraton TriBeCa or 11 Howard depending upon what you're into.

This will sound dumb (24 y/o still learning financial literacy here), but my credit score dropped 66 points after I closed a credit card ($500 unadjustable limit and wasn't getting any rewards, but didn't realize the negative effects of closing the acct), paid off my car 4 years early, and applied/got approved for a new credit card. How long will it take for it to bounce back / what all can I do to re-build my credit?

Anyone have suggestions for how to ask for a comped night? I used points to book a 5 night stay through Marriott in London. The AC is broken (continues to blast heat) and when I called the front desk he said I wasn’t the first to complain and he’ll ‘try to get maintenance to come tomorrow’ and his suggestion is to just ‘open a window’. I’m on the first floor so definitely not opening a window. At this point it’s so hot I can’t sleep and want to figure out a way to get my points back.

I'm desperately craving to get on an airplane and check into a Marriott indistinguishable from the million I have stayed in before and snack on tiny food in a lounge with average wine and then go have dinner by myself in a nice restaurant, then go back to my room & put the TV on in the background as I sit on the bed and spend way too long on a PowerPoint slide no one is really going to look at, safe in the knowledge that not only is all of it paid for, I'm also actually getting paid to do this.

Hello Fishes,

I have been in Manual testing since 1yr and 11 months. In December I will be promoted. Can any one refer me to some other organisations with good pakage. Even any suggestion to brush up my skills on testing. Can any one suggest which programming language should I learn and will be good for my testing background. Any leads will be appreciated.

Thank you.
