  1. Not surprised about the Nastyville Hilton situation. After Hilton started charging 380,000 a night for a room at the Conrad in Tokyo (that we used to pay 40,000 for) customers like me invited the company to kiss our foot (or other body part).. We booked our next trip to Tokyo with one of their competitors at 15,000 points per night (including breakfast and lounge access).

  2. It is my understanding that beginning June 1, the toe sucking will be a Diamond benefit at select Hilton hotels, while all other members will be charged extra (some hotels may bundle it into their resort fee).

  3. It’s a shame Israel and Lebanon are still in this state of hostility. A year ago, I wanted to visit Lebanon and Cyprus before arriving in Israel to start a tour. I had to do it in that order because there are no flights between Israel and Lebanon. And even then, I got taken aside for a lengthy grilling before boarding my flight from Cyprus to Israel once they saw I’d just been to Lebanon.

  4. When Hilton Hotels or an Amex Centurion Lounge offers guests a “toe sucking” service combined with a complimentary breakfast, what C-suite multitasking busy executive could resist.
