Could it be because I'm trying to drive from us to Canada?
No. What exactly are you searching for?

You got lucky.  Don't do it when you're in a rush

Pretty sure I would only like the short ribs and fries. Any other suggestions?

Another app is Pulled Beef Taquitos. It's good but isn't as good as Dan's suggestion.

I would say soup is a must.

+1 IMHO the food was never as fresh as Teaneck and their appearance was not good enough for the Heimishe crowd. You got to know your target market and see if it meets the local demographic. Marketing 101.Then they knew it was coming.

Please don't say Chatwal found that place to be a major 👎🏻  Walls were paper thin and we had a crazy neighbor, room was tiny and hubby kept calling the place a name😷.  No second chances.
The rooms are small but the quality of materials and design aesthetic is superb. Bathroom has a $5k toilet (numi kohler) with a rain drop shower.

And the staff wasn't cheap at all. Gave us 4 $30 vouchers when the room wasn't ready and sent up kosher chocolates and two bottles of kosher wine with a handwritten note from the manager and general manager apologizing and wishing us a pleasant stay. Got the room with an outdoor patio which was lovely.

spoke to 3 reps. 2 from general number and 1 from jfk. all said cant be done. (flyertalk members say def possible)

Is it possible to rent two cars under my account at the same time? I plan on making AU on one of them.


You must be the exception to the rule, I've had personal experience with unsuccessfully taking out 2 vehicles. I've also heard quite the stories of people who tried circumventing the system by pulling out two cars.

I rented two cars from the same location. Rented a minivan for the family. 2 days later needed a second car for biz trip and had no problems.

As we speak here, i have 3 vehicles on my name, with AU. all taken from the same location - LGA.

Couple of data points.
All worked.
2 vehicles same place same day.
2 vehicles separate location different days.
2 vehicles same location different day.
With the separate location incident they made a comment to me about having a car out but still let me rent

It's not hard coded to not allow you to rent. It's up to the agent to allow you to leave the lot with another car or not.

Anyone here stay or know anything about the JW Marriott Santa Monica Le Merigot?
Which would you go with, that hotel (15k spg points), or the Le Meridian Delfina Santa Monica (12k points), and why?

Not sure abut the JW, but I've stayed at the Le Meridean a couple of times. Rooms are on the smaller size, and its just a bit too far from the beach.
