Re: Los Angeles Master Thread
can one of you explain stacking award nights at IC? do you mean just using free IHG nights plus/or points-paid nights together for 2 rooms instead of one or something else?

Making 2 consecutive reservations with free nights from different accounts, and having the hotel combine reservations so you don't need to check out of one room and into another.

Re: South Florida Master Thread
Hotels that cost $300+ are ~$100
You can look at priceline. I could have gotten 4 star for ~100 plus tax & fees last week, but decided just to use 20k star points for four points instead.

Re: Maui Master Thread
there is no direct to ogg from ny. you can fly delta coach for 25k rt or biz for 45k rt pp korean which transfers from chase. can also do the same delta flight for 30k rt in coach using flying blue which transfers from chase and amex

as far as hotel i stayed 3 days at the marriott wailea for 40k marriott per night which transfers from spg at 1:3 so thats only 13,333 spg per night. you can stay for 5 nights and get the 5th night free so that makes it only 10,666 spg per night.also stayed 5 nights at hyatt kaanpali for 20k hyatt per night. would recommend the marriott, more upscale area and recently renovated. they will get you with the resort fee though. save the 2 hyatt nights for the GH kauai
Could also do Andaz West Maui with Hyatt if there's availability.

Re: Maui Master Thread
oh you are 100% right! thanks
out of sheraton, Westin, Ritz, Marriott Wailea  which one you would recommend? based on my research Wailea is best since it is newly renovated and it comes out cheaper in points than other ones. let me know what you think please.
Ritz is in a bad location on the Island. North and East Maui have bad weather; South and West have good weather.

Re: Maui Master Thread
Was it crowded by sunset? How long before did you need to get there? Which area on the actual crater was the best to view the sunset?
The best viewpoint is the lower visitors center, since it is at horizon level. The upper one is above, so you'll be looking down at sunset.

Re: Stuck In Paris- Help needed As someone who freely traveled Italy during Bein HaZmanim, as well as long stop overs is Madrid, Barcelona, and Zurich, I'll say that most 21 year olds can manage on their own. That having been said, ending up somewhere with 0 prep time that doesn't speak English as a first language could be difficult, especially without a laptop or tablet. When I got rerouted unexpectedly through Frankfurt on my way back from Israel once, even though I had a few hours where I technically could have explored, I didn't want to do it without having looked into any info about the area, transportation etc.

I also sympathize with people that feel Paris is particularly dangerous for Jews (though I personally don't agree with that).

Re: JFK - > TLV - Take a Shower?
I am traveling on Elal Economy from JFK to TLV roundrip.
How can I take a shower ?
JFK-> TLV: in JFK at departure or in TLV at arrival?
TLV -> JFK: in TLV at departure or in JFK at arrival? I am arriving around 6am and I'd like to take a shower before going straight to office.

I have Amex Plat.
I am willing to pay to access a Lounge. I see that the King David Lounge has a shower but not sure if I can pay to access it.



In JFK, you should be able to buy the cheapest DL one-way flight possible, and use your Amex Plat to access the Skyclub that I believe has showers.

You can use Matrix to find the cheapest destination and use routing code DL.

Re: Maui Master Thread
I don't really care about tour, I just wanna get the best out of these days. I feel like I tours will take me to the better places that I would go myself since I was never there and tour people know it all! I don't know honestly. I'll definitely put one day for road to hana. thanks
Nah. Driving RTH yourself is better. I did tour due to limited driving experience, and there were no stops for hikes. Mostly a lot of 15 minute breaks/photo ops/bathroom.
