Which hotel are you looking at?

I stayed at the Westin Kanapaali a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Of course it cost a lot less then (12k SPG/night), but with all the Marriott devaluations it’s hard to say if it’s worth it.

I just did and am staying at the Wailea. Could’ve spent $4k but why would anyone do that?

like

How is it?

Don’t forget that you still have to pay resort fees.

Why Wailea over Ritz Kapalua? Am planning a honeymoon on Maui and trying to decide which!

So suite night awards worked? I keep going back and forth on which to book

Just stayed at Maui Sheraton (Black Rock) on points. Any questions?

Keep in mind every 4 nights on points gets you 1 free. So 8 nights of points will get you 10! We booked at Maui Sheraton for the most basic room. Booked a resort view doubles room. Ended up getting an ocean view junior suite. There was still a $25 daily resort fee but we got free valet parked ($30/day) and free buffet breakfast for 2 each day ($33/person). Have heard great things about Grand Wailea, but it’s a bit south compared to much of the main points of interest like Lahaina, Kaanapali, etc. There’s a nice Ritz-Carlton as well but it’ll cost you more than 300,000 points

I did! At the Wailea Marriott realer... I swear last month my wife and I RELOVED OURSELVES AGAIN!

The wailea location is really nice and central to Maui

How do you deal with a team member who is not a morning person? We have our team meeting and client meetings at 9:30 AM and they always sounds groggy and slow on the phone. It looks very bad in front of the clients. They look like they just woke up too when they occasionally turn their camera on. I don’t think 9:30 AM is unreasonably early but also don’t want to tell people how to manage their personal schedule. Any suggestions will be welcome!

Potentially unpopular opinion: I only tip for food when I'm being served (takeout, fast food, counter service I don't tip). It is not my job to supplement the wages of individuals who are exploited by management. The great resignation has shown us that workers have incredible power right now and I hope they use that to their advantage. Overall, tip culture in the US is horrific and needs to go the way of the dinosaur
