2015年開業既台北萬豪酒店外面依然好新淨而入面就好有設計感。一入到去前檯有幅大型壁畫，非常有藝術感。萬豪旅享家白金或以上會員可以係executive lounge check in, 雖然去到未即時攞到房不過職員態度殷勤，耐心介紹左一下間酒店，再幫手安排好行李暫存。而房間就好闊落，有好大活動空間，窗邊仲有張梳化比你望住美麗華摩天輪。而且浴室都好大，採用乾濕分離設計，加上有兩個洗面盤，咁就唔洗驚有爭洗手間既情況啦:P。不得不提埋酒店泳池，泳池位於酒店19樓，高層加上露天設計可以睇埋台北靚景真係無得彈，就算唔游水都可以躺係池邊曬下太陽一樣咁relax。除左優閒設施，酒店亦設有展廳及宴客廳，適合商務人任使用。
今年睇佢條款咁寫「須於推廣期內成功登記合資格美國運通卡，在推廣期內於XXXX酒店之參與酒店，累積簽賬滿HK$XXXX或以上，可獲HK$XXX簽賬回贈X次」，英文 「spend HK$XXXX or more on the registered Card , in one or more transactions at participating properties of XXXX during the Promotion Period to receive a statement credit of HK$XXX」
耐唔耐都有讀者問我AE白金卡/AE白金信用卡嘅迎新積分點用好，我都有提過換做萬豪積分再換酒店其實都有唔少亮點…唔知係咪個個覺得換酒店唔值錢…我發覺真係有興趣換做酒店嘅讀者其實唔係咁多，大家都對換做里數感興趣多啲。如果係換做Asia Miles/Avios/KrisFlyer就唔洗諗咁多野，直接係Amex membership rewards換就OK。但如果你想換做ANA里數/日航里數都好，可以先換去萬豪積分之後再換去航空夥伴。如果對住酒店有要求，或者計劃緊新婚蜜月/欠了你另一半好耐嘅奢華蜜月旅行，用AE積分換做萬豪積分再換奢華酒店其實係幾好選擇，以現金價值嚟計算係極大化到AE積分嘅價值。就咁睇可能唔係好明，以下配合埋里先生上個月換咗The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort嘅例子再一步步解釋啦！
相約於HK$7,800 AE白金卡年費 X 2 = HK$15,600 (AE白金卡細頭包咗大頭嘅年費→AE白金卡年費及申請資格)
如果就咁睇HK$15,600換到五晚共值HK$40,000嘅酒店係絕對good for value
當然就咁睇每積分可以換到嘅價值嚟睇當然爽，但必須俾嘅水上飛機US$695 per person，島上嘅午餐晚餐(早餐萬豪白金會籍送2人)，潛水活動等等係換房點數上唔包，加上埋換房只係保證了最低級的房型(並不是Overwater Villa)，要upgrade就要問酒店補幾多差價(聞說US$300起步)。如果你拎返其他非國際大品牌酒店比較拎返同樣嘅野，可能HK$25,000已經可以包晒。但係St. Regis頂級奢華酒店渡假村嘛…就係有佢令人要一試嘅need。
(2019年5月21日更新: 訂房code LU4已失效，酒店唔再俾benefits，FHR就仲可以用) St. Regis Zhuhai係二零一八年十月份開幕，所以現在酒店嘅整體設備硬件都非常新穎，最正嘅地方係佢而家個價錢非常之咁抵住千零蚊，同香港瑞吉酒店St. Regis Hong Kong嘅價錢比起真係差天共地，如用AE白金卡FHR已經可以包埋早餐同埋晚餐。 用咁嘅價錢可以入住到萬豪集團裏面最高級嘅奢華品牌St. Regis體驗一下佢地嘅服務同品牌風格，的確係cp值高之選。仲有就係我呢個大鄉里從未搭過港珠澳大橋嘅巴士，今次一炮過可以滿足住酒店，搭金巴同埋食海鮮三個願望真係非常之唔錯呀。因為今次係同屋企人一齊去所以我book咗兩間房而其中有一間房upgrade咗做套房，所以以下落嚟可以同大家一次過睇曬普通豪華房同套房嘅分別。
今次同屋企人去珠海住St. Regis訂咗兩間房，里先生本身自己係萬豪鈦金卡會員幸運地有一間被升等至St. Regis Suite. 套房用嘅電視係B&O而淋浴備品都唔同一般房間。而套房有一個客廁一個套廁，房內仲有支望遠鏡可以俾你玩下。睇完之後個人覺得本身Deluxe Room已經非常豪華同夠玩，全雲石裝配廁所，有浴缸又有淋浴…真係唔怪得管家同我講成本差不多要500萬人仔一間…點解叫CP值高? 我去羅馬住St. Regis Rome要500歐羅一晚，硬件配置同級，但去珠海瑞吉用千零蚊人仔就住到…你話抵唔抵喇?
Marriott Bonvoy萬豪重啟折扣賣點數，美國時間今日最後一天 ( 11:59 PM ET May 15, 2019 )，如果按香港時間計會於5月16日11:59分完結。萬豪一直都有賣積分機制，只不過價錢貴，唔多人會買，而這個折扣賣點活動已經做了一段時間，不過計完條數我諗都係唔多朋友會買，因為折扣完25%都仲係貴貴地，如果要買分不如出張AE白金卡再換分好過。如果用係5th night award換4晚送1晚有機會維到皮，買50,000分拎嚟住沙田萬怡酒店5晚用作保級都仲算OK，住得返個價值。不過買分嘅野真係按自己需要量力而為，始於有貶值風險。

美國運通現時網頁開放AE Platinum Card俾人網上申請有迎新700,000運通積分(相等於46,667 Asia Miles/Avios)，呢加經里先生申請有額外100,000運通積分(6,667 Asia Miles/Avios)。呢張卡抵唔抵申請真係見仁見智，好明顯AE想做到呢張AE白金卡俾人感覺係「有品唔洗講出口，拎住呢張卡就夠」，土豪得嚟又夠低調。從實際角度睇，有睇里先生里數兌換表應該知道40,000里已經夠換日本來回business class有凸，從呢個角度睇呢張卡可以講得上抵因為你肯俾個年費就相等於拎到日本來回business機票。覺得里數唔值，可以考慮AE積分兌換酒店積分。
