Has anyone here stayed at the IC Thalasso?
Wondering if I (should i find availability) could use my brothers IHG free chase night for one of my nights or if the hotel will give me a hard time with him not being there. Wondering if its on the same level as the PH MLE where its so small and intimate.

Lots of online TRs from there. See the bloggers.

I still think 58K/39K per night is astronomical.

Better bet, I think, is still the LM for 16K+$270 into an OWB.

I can't imagine dropping so many SPG a night like that. For that reason I'm out.

personally I would drop 58,500 spg Per night for the W MLE for that nice room. Market value is about $1,170 & the room gos for as much as $3k or more.. just my opinion

also makes a difference the occasion, future trips frequency etc. points earning speed..

58.5K isn't getting you an OWB in SRBB or WMLE.
Still need to pay to confirm an upgrade.
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.

if you say so then I believe & accept what you say.. as I trust you.. but i'm thinking that when I called SPG for a rate on that crazy huge owb they said its 90k SPG per night.

90K is for the base room at the SRBB or WMLE.
Both are crazy rooms, neither are OWB.

58k SPG is almost the same as 90k for me. I would just pick a different destination.

but according to Dan even 58k doesnt even get you a OWB so it doesnt really even come up as a thought to me..
rather burn some hotel.com credits for my future MLE trip.. anyways.. back to Boro Bora.. :)
