Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort Opens Its Doors:
As I reported would happen here, the Radisson Aruba has now officially become the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort and is accepting new reservations using cash or Hilton HHonors points. The hotel is a Category 9 number of points required seems to start so far at 70,000 Hilton HHonors points per night for standard rooms with one king bed or two double beds. The great news is that all previously booked Club Carlson reservations seem secure. You can read my review of the property when it was a Radisson here.
Through Labor Day you can rent a Silvercar in NYC from $99 per day at their “pop up” location at the McCarren Hotel at 160 N 12th Street in Brooklyn. That is pricy, but rental cars are just generally pricy in NYC, and for this price you get an Audi and avoid the normal rental car hassles. You can also take advantage of discount codes to bring down the price including $75 off rentals two days or longer Sunday – Wednesday using the code SCNYC, $50 off a two day rental using the code FTU50, and the stackable $25 new customer bonus paid via Paypal when you are referred by an existing customer like me SHULL (I also get $25 – feel free to leave your link in the comments section).
