Trump got laughed at before the UN today, and now for some more levity as I thank Donald for my best Marriott anniversay night redemption. Unknown to me, this is UN week in NY. The who’s who of diplomats are here and, as a result, the hotel prices are through the roof. My go-to Four Points LIC is sold out, and the St. Regis NY is out of my price range whether it be in points or cash. The only hotel I found that qualified for my anniversary certificate was the Fairfield Inn New York Manhattan/Financial District. The hotel usually goes for $200 a night, but thanks to the nations united, it can be yours for the retail price of $800, before tax.
I do not understand this extortionate price. As you can see from the screenshot, I booked it today at 11AM. Unless a delinquent delegate is coming in last minute, the demand from the conference has been met, and the prices should level off. Luckily, I had the stay certificate, and luckily this hotel was not sold out.
Thank you President Trump for making the prices go up. Thank you Chase for the stay cert!
