                                      Top floor Courtyard Stockholm - and I was thrilled

                                Corner room Malmo Renaissance - and I was thrilled             

       

      Am I shooting too low?  Your Swedish expertise will be greatly appreciated, especially if it approaches your "Magic Touch" when it comes to upgrades.


      You killed them in Florida, and late June is not necessarily a dead time (I've seen deals in early June, but not this late).
      Can you share some insights, specifically (in order of attendance); Biscayne Bay, JW Marquis Miami, Turnberry Isle (this one really impresses me), Ritz in Lauderdale (Ritz? what Marriott traveler other than The Shoe gets Ritz upgrades?!)  and Palm Beach/Singer Island.  Other than your Swedish charm, what do you attribute your remarkable streak of upgrades to?  Thanks, an admirer
       

      very nice upgrades last trip !! - all the best from sweden

        Hi erc

        the only thing i can say is that the shorter stay the better upgrade - almost every upgrade was already made the day before arrival what i could see with the marriott app - so the swedish charm i dont know

         

        Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa - to a 2 bedroom ocean view

        we were traveling 2 adults and a 4 year old - i put 3 people in the reservation - maybe thats why we got upgrade to 2 bedroom  - not that much people at the hotel


        The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale - to a ocean view,

        at the ritz I asked for a room with king and sofa bed,or 2 quuen  but they wanted  $300 extra and we got this room with one king,


        Turnberry Isle Miami - same here put 3 in the reservation - very much people at the hotel


        JW - 3 people in resv - also plenty of people, when i checked in, large groups with hotels.com bookings and problems with diffrent rooms


        Miami Biscayne - upgrade at check in - very very much people - i think they ran out of 2 queen rooms and gave us the suite


        all te best// Chris

          Thanks Chris for the follow up.

           

          Ok, to summarize;

          1) stay at hotels one night at a time

          2) get yourself a 4 year old

          3) order kingkamea's flowers

           

          Yeah baby, we're talkin' upgrade (don't let the child eat the flowers).

           

          Keep on keepin' on falcon71

    Welcome to MI falcon71, nice to have a Swedish connection to call upon other than erc Eriksson!!!

     

    My great Grandparents were from Karlstad yet I've only been to Sweden once long ago in 1969, must return one day. Grandparents then taught me early on to like Sill......to this day much against Mrs. IAH's desire I will grab a jar at the market and have it in the fridge until I've consumed all of the wonderful pieces.

     

     

    And we have my Grandma's Swedish Meatball recipe that we use once a year during the Christmas Holidays.

     

    You'll enjoy the gang as I already see you're getting to know, so please continue to share your experiences from the homeland and more.
