  • The rumor that San Fransisco was getting an American Express Centurion Lounge seems to have been confirmed by a SFO spokesperson in the Bay Area Traveler This is big news for those who go through SFO as the Centurion Lounges are amazing.  I have been told that all of the locations will be a little unique, but my review of the Centurion Lounge that opened at DFW last week should give you a pretty good idea for why they are so awesome.  If Houston got one I would keep an American Express Platinum card forever since you can avoid the $50 admission fee with that card.  Thanks to the Wandering Aramean for sharing this info on Milepoint.  
  • The first Hyatt all-inclusive property, the Hyatt Zilara Cancun, is taking reservations for stays beginning 11-15-13.  So far there is no points availability loaded, and I am emailing Hyatt to see what the point redemption level will be.  This is an all-suites, all-inclusive, adults-only property (16+).  Some random dates I checked came back with rates starting at $320 USD for one guest and close to $400 USD for double occupancy.  In contrast, the Hyatt Regency Cancun was about $100 for the same nights.  Here is what included at this resort:

All Inclusive Plan Includes:

  • All-suite accommodations with breathtaking ocean views located on the widest beach in Cancún
  • Fine dining options at à la carté and gourmet buffet restaurants
  • 24 hour in-suite dining

  1. Heather, you and me both!
    Jim, that can happen. It can also (usually) be avoided. No fun at all when it gets ya though!
    Grant, ha ha!
    Matt, too early to say for sure. I sure hope so though.
