Whilst in an extended transit in Abu Dhabi, I needed a hotel room for 18 hours. Given the benefits available by booking through American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts, plus my Starwood status, I figured it was worth giving the St. Regis a go.
Greg’s experience of Air Canada’s 767 from Vancouver to Toronto, and how he used 20,000 KrisFlyer miles to make the booking.
A solid alternative to transiting through the US West Coast, with a comfortable seat, delicious food and friendly service. Plus, how to use MileagePlus, LifeMiles or KrisFlyer miles to redeem a seat.
This Starwood property has a funky design, with excellent parking, close proximity to the airport and great value.
This SPG property represents great value with modern rooms, good facilities, and easy access to the airport and CBD. Plus, why you should wait until March to book if redeeming Starpoints.
AA is revamping their Business and First Class lounges across its major hubs. Here is what I thought of the Miami lounge, with access granted to Qantas Gold and above members even on domestic AA flights.
IHG is upping its game when it comes to the quantity and quality of hotels offered in this quarterly promotion but do be on the lookout for price increases. A solid list is out for this quarter.
Melbourne’s Qantas Club is the go-to lounge for many of Qantas’ frequent flyers and lounge members plus their guests.
The Qantas Domestic Business Lounge is an exclusive area which caters to Business Class guests, Platinum frequent flyers and higher. We take a look at its main points of difference compared to the adjacent Qantas Club.
We take a look at Virgin Australia’s largest lounge, last refurbished and doubled in size during 2014 to cope with the increase in passenger load.
A comfortable lie-flat seat and great catering with professionalism of the crew needing to be improved. A good use of Qantas Points and Asia Miles.
I spent a hard-earned stash of Starwood points at the Sheraton Mirage in Port Douglas earlier this year. Recommended!
