Tale of two NYC luxury hotels


Level 2 Member
I went away with my wife to NYC for a 2 day getaway. I had signed up for the marriott card (80K) and wanted the most luxurious experience. After speaking to a bunch of reps one referred me to a new hotel called the NY Edition. Loved it. As a gold member and with a little sweet talking and emailing I got upgraded into a suite. Did not disappoint. It was actually a luxury hotel that was affordable under Marriott in NYC (actually its part of Ritz Carlton)
Only to be topped by the most amazing stay for my wifes birthday in the Park Hyatt NY (free from my Hyatt CC) and again we were upgraded to a suite (Park Suite) after some well placed phone calls and emails and of course my newly minted Diamond status.
