Hotel Review: Le Méridien Barcelona

Barcelona is an amazing city to visit, and one of the biggest benefits is that the port in Barcelona – Port Vell – commences at the end of Barcelona’s La Rambla right by the Columbus monument, a city landmark since 1886. Last fall I had the opportunity to go on a Mediterranean cruise departing Barcelona,…

Delta Sky Club Breakfast

I’m really starting to like Delta’s enhanced food options in the Sky Club, especially the Delta Sky Club Breakfast options. In the past before the enhanced Sky Club option, I would have considered alternative airport club lounges like the Club at ATL or the out of the way American Express Centurion lounge in La Gaurdia.…

Hotel Review: Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino

I had a last-minute opportunity last week attend a quick sales meeting in Aruba, so I packed my bags, booked a room at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino and hopped on a Southwest Airlines non-stop flight from BWI to AUA. Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino The Renaissance is right in the heart of Oranjestead…

A Delta Airline Surprise – They Never Fail

For some flying can be routine, even boring. You pack your bag, say your good-byes, leave home for the long quiet ride to the airport, fight the long line at security, cram into the plane train, stop by the lounge to check some emails, then board your flight to snag the last over head space. It’s…

Just this past weekend the amazing priced Gotham Air Helicopter that gets you from Manhattan to JFK Airport in as little as six minutes, became bookable. The introductory $99 fare isn’t so bad, and when you think about the fact that it could save a ton of extra time or even save making your flight…

Delta 767 First Class – I Won Ben Stein’s Coffee

Before I get to the post about dinner with DMX on an Airbus A321, I figured I’d share a report from my last Delta 767 First Class flight. On flights to the west coast, I typically look for a widebody aircraft, like Delta’s 777, A330 or internationally configured 767. None of those were an option…

Delta Starbucks First Class Review

Delta Starbucks coffee has been added to all of Delta flights as of February 1, 2015. A few weeks ago, I found the one Starbucks coffee machine in all of the Sky Clubs, and it made for some great coffee. So on this flight, I just had to try out a freshly brewed cup of Starbucks quality…

First Threeway In Delta Sky Club: Delta Terminal C Sky Club

The Delta Terminal C Sky Club is tucked away near gate C 37. It’s almost hard to spot as  the entrance is slightly hidden behind a food snack kiosk. But if you know what you are looking for you’ll find it near gate C 37, one of Delta’s newer Sky Club’s in the Atlanta airport.…

US Airways First Class Review A321

Regular readers know we here at Points, Miles & Martinis usually fly Delta Airlines when possible, both for convenience, inflight experience and for reliability. So it was a departure from the norm when we decided to book 5 US Airways First Class awards on the same flight to the west coast on a recent ski…

Andaz 5th Avenue Loft Suite Review

On a recent return trip to the Andaz 5th Avenue, I had the opportunity to experience a suite I haven’t stayed in before. In the past, the Splash Suite At The Hyatt Andaz 5th Avenue In New York City and the Andaz Suite At The Hyatt Andaz 5th Ave New York have provided more than enough space. So I…
