I have another idea, but this time I’m fairly certain it’s genius, though I’ll run it past you guys anyway. I’ve decided to move to
Tianjin, China. I know what you’re thinking: what a brilliant idea, go
for it! Why Tianjin, you ask?
Well, the St. Regis Tianjin just opened a few months ago, and the rates are rather good, about ~$140USD/night.My plan is to move there and
live on the American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts rate, which
includes complimentary daily breakfast, guaranteed 4PM check-out, a room
upgrade, and a $100 food and beverage credit per stay. Add that to my
Starwood Platinum benefits, and I’ll be living the high life for pennies
on the dollar.
The only downside is that the food and beverage credit is per stay as opposed to per night, so I guess I’ll have to stay at the Westin
every other night. Or maybe I need to move there with a friend and we
need to have alternating reservations every other night.
