Welcome to JarvisMarcos.com, a thorough and extensive database of my travel reviews.
I fly over 100,000 miles per year in First and Business class cabins and review every new product that I try. Similarly, I review almost every luxury hotel and airport lounge that I set foot in
I book the majority of my travel using sales, promotions and a variety of other tricks - often leveraging the power of hotel points and airline miles. If I use a special technique of any kind to book a travel experience, I'll mention it in the review.
This means that hopefully you'll have all the tools you need to book your own amazing trips too!

When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself.
The main service was chaotic, no doubt about it. However, the dine on demand really came into its own when I wanted to set my own schedule and here, much like at the bar, the service was sincere, friendly and professional.
Our stay at the ANA Kyoto was really good. For the price, the place is unbeatable. You have great service, really comfortable beds, Kyoto castle on your doorstep, a really relaxing waterfall lobby and shuttles every 15 minutes directly to the train station.
I definitely wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
My stay at the Hotel Indigo Helsinki exceeded my expectations. The hotel felt very new and cool, without having the weird try hard feel of some Ws, I also love how small and cosy it felt. Truly a boutique feel, rather than the bland enormity of a regular chain stay. The staff were friendly, proactive and very helpful indeed.
If you are staying here, don't leave it to chance, pay for the view, it is totally worth it. However, my other comments still hold, if you want something more modern and luxurious go with the Ritz or The Upper House. If you want to be able to walk straight out of your front door and into the action, stay at the Mandarin. When it comes to getting value for money though, a points redemption with a cash upgrade at the IC is hard to argue with.
The Intercontinental is a perfect place to stop for one night if you arrive late or are leaving early from the airport. Even if you only have one night in Bali, as a stopover, you would be able to immediately unwind with dinner in one of the seafront restaurants in Jimbaran followed by a walk along the beach and cocktails at the Sunset Bar and Grill.
