JetBlued to Barbados

‎Hello from Barbados. I just took the red-eye flight from JFK here. The flight is four hours and fifty minutes. For a cost of 7800 points, I was fine flying economy. I slept most of...

Priority Pass Lounge of the Year? Guadalajara, Mexico

I left for the airport early because traffic in Guadalajara is a nightmare. (see Guadalajara Travel Guide) I arrived promptly only to find out that my flight was delayed for hours. No worries, there was a Priority Pass Lounge that was Lounge of the Year in 2016.

The Westin Guadalajara: The Other Option

Westins feel like home. They're comfortable and familiar. The Westin Guadalajara had the chic appeal of a W, without the IKEA furniture and unremarkable service.

Four Points Times Square: Another Four Points in Manhattan

The days of St. Regis New York luxury are over. Now, when I need a hotel in New York, I look for the cheapest option at the best location. The Four Points brand by SPG is usually an affordable option.

Delta Sky Club Cincinnati: I’m in Cincinnati?

When I booked the flight, I rationalized that paying another $70 to have one connection instead of two connections was too much. That's why I am in Cincinnati for the next four hours. The...
