Hilton recently announced some changes, including the killing of the famous “Double Dip”. This blog post ponders the question “Does Double Dip’s death spell an end to occasional loyalty?“. I think this baby was dead some time ago, it’s just another company that affirms what should have been true all along “Those who spend more money with the company get rewarded.” Anyway, we at least get some intelligent stuff still out there in the blogosphere and as long as I am blogging, I am committed to bring it to you. I think #lookingatmyclicks&tryingtofindanylol.
In other news recently, after the longest integration ever perhaps, we can now book Kimpton hotels with IHG Rewards Club points and even use the Visa free anniversary night. Any Kimptons worth it to blow the free night? I hear the Surfcomber property in Miami is nice! Any others?
