Best new hotels to check out in 2019 – CNN Travel

Some really cool looking hotel options and a few points ones as well.  I know Bethany is looking forward to checking out Rosewood Baha Mar after her underwhelming trip to Grand Hyatt Baha Mar.

Amex Gold is Inconsistent with their 4x Restaurants Category – Doctor of Credit
Great guest post from Chuck’s friend. It appears Amex still hasn’t figured out this coding issue and it is annoying to have to contact them.  The larger establishments should be fine but the smaller locations may cause issues.  This may lead to people skipping Amex and going with Citi Prestige’s 5X earning or Chase Sapphire Reserve for 3X.
American Airlines Welcomes First Flight Attendant With Special Needs – Travel Noire

Very cool story! I wish more corporations would do things like this.  It is a win win so I don’t see why they don’t.  It helps make a dream come true, makes their employees and customers proud, and gets good press. United should be paying attention.
