I'd be interested in reading a full TR if you can manage it. I think it would be nice to read about something that is not the St. Regis or the PH.
there is only one TR of the SR and your already sick of it??

No, you misunderstood, reading about the SR is really cool but knowing I'll probably never be able to go, I think it be nice if I can read about a place that's actually somewhat affordable.

People will probably sell you SR nights for a small premium to that...
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I'm not going anytime in the near future so that's not really going to be an option.

Did you book sunset or how come you got a upgradeable?
As I described in my quick reports on rooms, only the sunset side will have 100% privacy and sun, but as most booked sunrise, they will not have this without upgrading for a lot of money

Coach as far as I know
I think United miles flying Turkish is the best.

I think we were just very fortunate. I emailed the head of butler services before I got there and they happened to have low occupancy so they just gave it to us.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
