Differences Between The Luxury Hotel Program For Sapphire Reserve Cardholders & The One For Everyone Else

The Chase Sapphire Reserve advertises itself as the card for smart, sophisticated travelers. It has many features that justify the hefty $450 a year price tag, like a $300 annual travel credit, primary car insurance coverage, Priority Pass membership and Global Entry/TSA Precheck reimbursement.

If you go to the page on the Sapphire Reserve website, you’ll find a link to the Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection.

The Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection is a network of more than 1,000 of the world’s finest hotels, resorts and spas. When you use your Chase Sapphire ReserveSM or J.P. Morgan ReserveSM card to purchase your stay, you enjoy complimentary guest privileges including daily breakfast for two, a room upgrade (when available at select properties), early check-in and late check-out (when available at select properties) and a special amenity unique to each property such as lunch or dinner for two, a spa treatment, golf green fee waivers, welcome gift, or airport transfers.

Here’s a direct link to the website. You’ll be asked to log in with your Chase ID associated with your Sapphire Reserve card. When I tried with a different account, the link sent me to the general Ultimate Rewards page. But what if you don’t have a Sapphire Reserve for, you know, reasons?

Need To Eat At The Airport But Can’t Get Food Because Of Reasons? There’s An App For That!

These situations happen practically every day:

  • You’re traveling from Airport A, with just a 1-hour layover at Airport B before you continue on to Airport C, and the line + wait for your restaurant of choice is too long.
  • You travel from Airport A and land at Airport B fifteen minutes after the very last restaurant in the airport closes.
  • You’re traveling from Airport A and your plane is going to leave out of Terminal B, but your favorite airport restaurant is at Terminal D and you don’t have the time or the airline ticket to get you past security to get to that terminal (this has happened to us when we want to eat at Cask & Larder at MCO).

So what do you do? Stay hungry? Grab a candy bar or a 2-day old salad at the kiosk next to the Hudson news? Buy a snack box on the plane?

What if I told you there was an app you can use so you could order food from the airport, and it’d be delivered right to your gate? Because there is!

Florida Airports Get Into A Tweet War Over….Chili’s?

We’ve mentioned before that we love Orlando International Airport’s social media dude. His posts on Twitter, in particular, are informative but he also puts out a whole lot of fun tweets that make us smile. That’s why MCO’s Twitter account (along with several others) is one of our favorites.

Over the years we’ve discovered that the the Twitter accounts of many other airports are equally as fun and amusing. Tampa. Atlanta. etc. So when TPA started throwing MCO some shade, it wasn’t surprising…but it sure was funny!
