SLS Las Vegas: Not LA Cool

When I think of the SLS brand, I think of the hip one in Los Angeles. That is not the case for the one in Vegas. This hotel is lodging for those coming for conventions....

United Basic Economy Review: It Sucks

This is TPOL's first Flight Review of a United flight. I've done a great job of avoiding the airline and will continue to do so. Here's what happened: What I saved in money I lost...

Aloft Denver Airport: The Cure For Exhaustion

The only SPG hotel that is actually at Denver Airport is the Westin. Most ‘airport hotels’ are a fifteen minute drive away. The Aloft is one of those hotels. After an interminable wait at the airport, I arrived at the Aloft dead tired.

Frontier: Rivaling Allegiant For Worst Airline

Did I mention that this was horrible trip from Montana to New York. Sucked in by a cheap price, I tricked myself into believing that flying Frontier would be tolerable. The journey began from...

United Club Denver: Getting My Passes’ Worth

Flying Frontier is a bad idea. The seats are tiny, there's no IFE, and everything is a fee. With a layover in Denver, I knew that I needed some drinks to get me through...
