Hotel elites get perks as a result of their hotel stays or through some other magic done with a combination of spending large amounts on co-branded hotel credit cards, status matching arbitrage and something about running around with mattresses.
‘Tis the season. Not the holiday season silly, it’s the season where hotels are announcing their promotions for the start of 2018.

Las Vegas was the one place on our Southwest trip that I had the most problems in planning. There’s so much do to there and so many hotel choices that it was dizzying.

I had every intention of checking our the rooftop bar during our stay.
So why did I throw all of those plans away and change hotels at the last minute?
