I'm assuming they renamed the towers and the Sea Tower was formally the Curacao tower?
    Thanks much!
    To the towers question yes. I have status from traveling quite a bit, but here is the easy way. Apply for the IHG credit card. You get Platinum status for as long as you have the card ($95 per year fee) You also get one free night a year. You wont find a room on Palm Beach for 95 bucks a night. Do you have dates you'll be there yet?

    We just learned something about the IHG system and the credit card. I go back and forth using it and paying if off. Usually, only use it for large expenses. We haven't had any large expenses in the last 4-5 months. We also changed loyalty programs and are trying Hilton and got the American Express card. We've stayed at an IHG property once or twice in the last year.

    We got a letter last week stating it's time for the annual fee and due to the fact we have a zero balance, we are not being charged the fee, our card is cancelled and any points accumulated will expire in 30 days. Say whaaaaaaaaat?

    I need to make a phone call.

    Yeah, you should make that call right away. I doubt this is the case, but it could be an indicator of fraudulent activity. I had an account hacked and all of a sudden I had no status or points in the account. I had to call from Kuwait, but I got it straightened out.

    Th Holiday Inn has great reviews on TripAdvisor travel forum, so we stayed there twice with my husband. Excellent location on the beach and beautiful pools. Can't beat the price too. And much of the hotel had been renovated.
