    Why whine and bitch about something that you wont use?

    OT: LHR T4 – which one is best the Plaza lounge or skyteam? thanks

    • Rob says:

      SkyTeam is HUGE, PP is more compact. Both are totally fine, Skyteam will have more seats though, possibly worse food.

    • marcw says:

      I really like the atmosphere in the SkyTeam T4 Lounge. Those green walls, they add some nature to the, otherwise sterile, environment.

  • ChrisC says:

    O/T but on your passing comemnt on resort fees in New York.

    I am looking for a hotel in March. Went to check a hotel I had previously stayed in and their resort fee was a shocking $49.99. I kid you not $49.99

    Now as well as the usual wifi and gym (no pool) that also included a breakfast buffet and evening ‘light fare’ and drinks (a la club in a Crowne Plaza but more range better quality from what I remember from my last visit) but even so.

    Oh and as well as that $49.99 there s tax on top of that which bumps it up to over $57 (£44) a night.

    My trip is 6 nights so thats £ 260 on top of the usual room rate and proper taxes.

    I’m booking elsewhere.

      We stayed at the Hilton Millennium UN Plaza in May, no resort fee, 2 cat room upgrade, breakfast and evening nibbles in the lounge each day. The bedroom was huge for NYC and beautifully appointed with fantastic city views. Not the most central but easy walking distance or subway ride to most of the attractions.

  • Anna says:

    Just checked into the Durham Marriott – I booked a standard award room at a special rate – 22,000 points – and been upgraded to a suite, very nice indeed!

  • JImbob says:

    OT – what’s the maximum Curve daily limit? Mines currently at £4.5k, but I’ve got my eye on something worth £5.5k that could earn me some nice double dip cash back. Might ask for an increase, if others have a higher limit.

  • Roger says:

    OT – Amex MR to Marriott

    I emailed Marriott about missing MR Points and have received email back asking about my Amex MR number.

    What is this number? Where do I find this number?

    • Roger says:

      Thanks, couldn’t spot the number there but found by chatting with CS

        Asking Virgin for a credit increase – good chance or no chance?
        Been with them over 7x months.

        • Freddy says:

          Depends on your history etc but I had my limit doubled from £4000 to £8000

        • jc says:

          Erm..not giving a HUGE amount of data to go on 😀

          Many people have been given credit limit increases from Virgin. Others have not..

        • Ben says:

          Give it a try – let us know how you get on. My current limit was £2500, asked for increase before change of rules regarding earned points linked to a credit card and asked for £4K and got it. Was wondering if I could ask for another one – last increase was November..

        • Youllnever says:

          Requested a second limit increase after a year and a bit. They about doubled my limit to a bit more than 10K.

        • AndyGWP says:

          They only entertain it after 6 months, so you should be fine on that front. I’m sure someone posted a link once where you could request it online but I sometimes dream things

    OT. Marriott Courtyard at Inverness Airport appears to be open for bookings from 10th March. Cheapest on that day £71. Just a wee stroll to the check-in desks. It looks ….from the outside like nicely decorated stacked shipping containers . Enjoy your haggis,black pudding and porridge!

    • Rob says:

      Thanks. We will pop up!

    • BJ says:

      Thanks Jill. The next night I need to stay in Inverness for a flight it is £132 prepaid, £151 flexible compared to £142 and £156 at HIX. However, it is a steal at only Cat.3, 17,500 Bonvoy points compared to cash rates, and to the 30,000 points required at HIX. The HIX gravy ‘plane’ is obviously over so they will not be pleased. However, the good days at the Courtyard are doomed once Hampton opens between the rail and bus stations. Cannot see why anybody would want to stay at the Courtyard unlless they have flights around 7am, much better to stay in the city. For a Saturday in August price jumps to £196 prepaid, £216 flexible. The reward category will likely increase soon as it’ll lose them too much money unless Marriott covers close to real rate, in which case Marriott will want to raise it themselves unless I’m missing something. Rooms will not be empty because cash rates compare reasonably to those in the city where I’ve seen Mercure hit £350 in August before.

      • Rob says:

        As part of their contract to operate as a Marriott brand, the hotel has to give up reward nights for peanuts (I would guess around £20 for a Courtyard). It’s part of the deal. Only if the hotel is almost full (95%) will Marriott pay the actual rate for that night.

        Premier Inn in town is my recommendation
