Honestly I'm just not sure what the appeal is... I prefer one in my room.

100% everyone could, and should do as they please. I was referring more to the hype the hotel themselves build around these "exclusive upgrades".

A lot of ppl consider that to be a huge difference in a hotel room. Being able to relax in a Jacuzzi outside with fresh air under the stars etc
Plus the fact that rooms like that are hard to come by does make it exclusive

More on topic, (although not actually an award reservation) I just booked a gorgeous villa with a completely private pool in costa rica for $140 a night!

Makes sense, just was expecting something fancier I guess. Either way I hope he enjoys himself.

Lol. I couldn't even believe it when I found it. The decent hotels in the area I was looking were over 200 after taxes and then I found this 2500 sq foot villa with furnished patio, balcony, private pool for 140 flat! Maybe show your wife pics of some of these villas and she'll change her mind ;)

Haha I think a lot of us have been in a similar scenario at some point or to some extent. We should start a thread on how to convince a spouse to go on a certain vacation or do a certain activity (ie - skydiving :) )

Santa Monica particularly, but I have the same question for LA & San Diego/Coronardo.

Only way to find out for sure is to google it. Lots of high end hotels have at least one or 2 rooms with one in the hotel, usually the pricier suites.

Never actually stayed in Santa Monica proper. I think Marriott has a few nice properties there.
