“Forced” to adventure due to free night certs… On my mind

There was a time when I sort-of hated hotel free night certificates.  Often, expiration dates approached and I had no good use for them.  Sometimes I'd use the soon-to-expire free night at a near-airport...

Le Méridien Maldives: Worth buying a travel package?

It's hard to believe that Marriott has launched a brand new Le Méridien resort in the Maldives (scheduled to open in August) and assigned it to category 5.  Among the other Marriott resorts in...
