Everyday was perfect, including the price. We got our round trip tickets to Ontario on an Airbus for United Miles. Status entitled us to to better seats somewhere up front. We got our Marriott hotel room on points from our business, and we got the upgraded room because of status (Platinum Elite). The upgraded room entitled us to the concierge, which entitled us to breakfast, snacks, dinner, dessert, and all the coffee we could possibly drink. The day we returned to Ontario we stayed at the Sheraton and once again got an upgraded room because of status that is tied to our timeshares with Starwood. So once again we had the concierge.
Did I mention that we also got an upgraded rental car through National because of status. The GMC Terrain was really nice.... especially when we drove it over to Palm Springs. We burned a half tank of gas and bought a total of two meals the whole time we were gone. In reality it was cheaper than staying home.
The biggest glitch we had the whole vacation is airport security. For some reason they just can't look at my junk enough. Somehow they feel they are serving society with this bogus security. But, hey! If they want to look, let em look!
The other glitch was the coffee shop at the Ontario airport. Man, was that slow! and expensive! If you are there and have time to burn at the airport, go to the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. They can fix you up so you have no spare time.... and no spare change. :( That was the most expensive part of the whole trip.
