On The Road / Re: New Hilton HHonors Status Match Announced
« on: June 08, 2016, 11:37:19 PM »
I requested Diamond match for hubs and was initially denied. Denial letter essentially stated since we had a lot of stays booked with Hilton the match wasn't applicable. It was for people that used other hotels. I was in a snarky mood, wrote back with the comment, "So if I cancelled my reservations, booked at another hotel, then I would be eligible?" Received a letter backing saying, Congratulations....
Well, that response would be sure to keep you with their chain...

So anyone on this thread who says they did is lying?

This thread is awesome because it shows the incredibly wide spectrum of the Jewish community that is represented on this forum, each with their own customs - not to mention personalities and preferences. Yet many are convinced that everyone is doing it their way, and cannot fathom a differing view/choice/preference.

I hope you don't mean me :) I was just pointing out that no one should feel bad that they weren't taken to a hotel on their wedding night. Because as pointed out by others, it's not the most practical time to go away.

Same one. But I guess they didn't enforce it.

Ok. I just got upgraded to Diamond. I needed to show them that BWR SBA program member's Diamond status does not expire..
I didn't prove a night stay and still went through

does anyone know if a future booking from best western will work for proof of stay for the new hilton match?

They didn't ask me for any proof of stay.

That's the problem with today's day and age
Btw did you go to a hotel on your wedding night? If yes why?

Exactly.

I didn't. And neither did any of my friends. And if they did, I definitely didn't know about it.

Why not do both?

I know I was on a very tight budget when I got married. I feel it would be good for people to know that it's totally not necessary and might even be wasteful to go to a hotel for a wedding night, and not feel like they're letting their spouse down by not taking them to one.

Now if you have extra money that you don't mind spending, then it's your prerogative to do with it as you wish, just as you can spend whatever you want on a extravagant and lavish wedding hall. Etc. As long as people don't feel compelled to keep up with the Schwartzes..

i dont understand this fascination with hot tubs on wedding nights

I get why going to a hotel for the wedding night sounds attractive for a Choson-Kallah, but really it makes more sense to save it for a later occasion such as an anniversary or, better yet, after you have a couple of kids and need to to get out. Then they will really appreciate it.

He's probably upgrading his server before he posts so that he can handle all the PM's.

the sad part is. There were like 8 people waiting and 4 workers all sitting there doing nothing.
Did they accept you as a walk in?

Hertz has closed their location in Monsey, from what it looks like they closed all the location near the frum oilem. Coney Island location, Lakewood, Monroe and now In Monsey. Interesting.
Wow. I know most of us are savvy and use codes that bring down the price,  but they weren't busy enough to turn a profit?

Are you referring to the metadata? (track titles, author, genre etc)

If yes, I've been using mp3tag and really like it. It's great for batch editing as well.

$100 from reservations.

Really? Ask for more. My 2 connecting flights were delayed and I got $125 each a year later.
