Hilton Fallsview Hotel - Thanksgiving 2008

The Hilton Niagara Falls Fallsview Hotel knows how to thank its gold VIP for being a loyal customer. (LP, let's have our favorite hot dog fallsviews dinner with fine wine followed by in-room movie!) The turn down service was so personal. They had a staff brought us the complimentary bottled water for the gold VIP members. Without the "O", the CASIN is powerless, CASINO I mean. It's good time to go get some cash! Hilton offered us full American breakfast at the Watermark fallsview restaurant with the best possible seat as seen on TV!

Pumpernickels at Niagara Fallsview

What is with this empty spot in the Niagara Fallsview casino food court? It is where Pumpernickels - the deli restaurant that sold us $5.99 for a cold sandwich - used to be. With Tim Hortons, who needs the cold and expensive sandwiches?

Sheraton on the Falls

That is not right! Sheraton invited me to be SPG gold elite through it's partner this year. I had the chance to try that out at Sheraton on the Falls through priceline. However, that was not much success. At check-in, the front desk staff told me that there is no elite benefit given that I book through prepaid 3rd party channel. I called the SPG elite phone line immediately. Nancy told me that there is policy but it's up to the hotel. I always book through 3rd party. Other hotel chain has the same policy. I don't get the points and miles which is reasonable, but I always get upgrade and VIP benefit. That was the smallest gym I had ever been to, but the view was amazing. It is extremely far away from the falls but the angle is the best! The entrance fee is $10 but fee is waived for SPG members. The gym attendant stared at LP's shoes and asked LP not to use the gym without snickers. Since she's so strict to the gym code, how come she left 1.5 hour early before the closing hour? Well...
