-I requested a suite in the older building, but there are only 3 suites in that building and at first they were unable to fulfill the request. No matter though, we were upgraded to a spectacular Park Executive suite that was possibly the most spacious hotel room I’ve ever been in. The room normally sells on their website for $1,100 per night, so not a bad deal for 18,000 points per night (a value of 6.1 cents per point). The room had 2 bathrooms, a vast dining and living room area, an office, a couple of closets, and a huge master bathroom and rain shower and jacuzzi. Not that I don’t have any complaints about the room though. The light switches are seriously poorly conceived. They are too “modern” for practical usage, even their own employees could barely operate them. Also a dozen lights are controlled by a single switch which is highly impractical and switches are not where they ought to be and are quite … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Buenos Aires, Argentina

We got to the Park Hyatt and had them freeze the suitcases of frozen food. Our room in the Posades Tower section of the hotel was not ready and the offered to move us to a room in the Palace section of the hotel for $100/night. I asked for a manager as I was surprised that I didn’t receive a suite or at least a standard Palace section room as a Globalist member. In the end they moved us to the Palace room for free. The Posades Tower section of the hotel is more modern, while the Palace section has more of the original character. More importantly for us though given that we would be in the hotel for Shabbos, we moved from a 7th floor Tower room to a 3rd floor Palace room. … [Read more...] about Antarctica Trip Notes Part 1: Buenos Aires+Planning And Positioning For The Adventure Of A Lifetime

Towards the end of the tour you are supposed to walk through the Sistine Chapel, which is halachikly questionable. As I didn’t ask the question I wanted to avoid it, but the guards insisted that you had to exit through the chapel. David called over a manager for us and got rather animated, but in the end they allowed us to bypass and wait to meet up with the end of the tour. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes Rome: Veni, Vidi, Vici In 48 Hours; United Polaris First Class And Polaris Lounge Review
-DO book a lap child at the time of booking for international travel. BA is very generous in only charging 10% of the Avios instead of 10% of the full fare ticket. with Rafi to Buenos Aires in first class in 2012, American wanted $1,000 just to bring him on as a lap child. BA charged just 15,000 Avios. Just be sure to book the domestic portion separate from the international portion so that you don’t pay 10% for the domestic legs where the child shouldn’t need to pay anything. … [Read more...] about 22 Things To Keep In Mind When Using Avios
