Amazing What We Will Put Up With For Status
Yeah it takes a slap in the face like this one to get me writing again. Just checked into a nameless hotel. Now I understand why they stripped off the nameplate.
But since I’ve decided to consolidate my hotel share with SPG, I needed an SPG property. If I’d bothered to check Tripadvisor I’d have known better. But I probably still would have stayed, to drive towards Platinum.
Shows how powerful the draw of status can be, given that I just reached Gold in just 13 weeks. Not like it helped much – there’s no upgraded rooms and doesn’t appear to be much to gain here. But it should be better at my numerous stays over the coming weeks all over the US and Asia.
And I’m looking forward to my first Aloft experience in 2 days.
