Anyone want to summarize the video? Too lazy to watch it  ;D

Massive corruption at the highest levels of government and judiciary involving the laundering of over $1.5B, large scale bribery and gov't sanctioned murder and arrests

I wonder what discount the St Regis got. Maybe they had to promise some of the guys there cheap redemptions, so they can redeem their spg points, they collected from spending all that money

The same expose can be done on any Arab country (to a much greater degree).

it would help if you posted which hotel you are looking for, though I'm sure its the St. Regis

That's a great deal, you guys should take him up on it!  :P

Conversely if you don't want to shell out that much and have SPG points lying around, I made zero St. Regis bookings but have a boatload of HHonors points that continuously replenish and if anyone instead wants to go to the Conrad, I'll take 130k SPG points for a five night stay whenever you want at the Conrad.  I just came back and it was truly amazing (plus the chef there will make you whatever kosher food you want and let you in to the kitchen to supervise everything and turn on the flame and I left kosher seaweed for whoever wants fresh sushi and replenished the Pam spray for eggs in the morning...see Barry Lincon's TR since I haven't written mine or figured out how to post pictures yet)!  ;D

Frankly, I wouldn't even try to confirm one there. It's blasphemous, but I'd be happy in their beach villas which look beautiful.
