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!

REVIEW – SWISS : First Class – Montreal YUL to Zurich ZRH (B777)

After 24 hours enjoying the sights and food of the beautiful, wintry city of Montreal it was finally time to step into SWISS' all new B777 First Class cabin. I was so happy to be able to plan the trip in a way that let me try the older A330 product beforehandĀ as it meant I could finish on a real high note. As soon as I approached the jetbridge I was greeted by the smiling crew, "Welcome back, leaving so soon?" they said as I stepped into reception area and made my way left to seat 2K. Not only had I selected the exact same seat for my return, I'd managed to get the exact same crew too! The scientific, analytical part of my mind immediately filled with joy as a I realised that I had the perfect control for my comparison of the two different SWISS products šŸ˜

REVIEW – Air Canada International Maple Leaf Lounge – Montreal (YUL)

Modern, thoughtful design featuring ample power sockets, a variety of different seating options and abundant natural light. This lounge is a genuinely pleasant place to sit and relax in, or indeed charge your devices and get some work done...

REVIEW – SWISS : First Class – Zurich ZRH to Montreal YUL (A330)

As an overall experience, flying in SWISS First was absolutely fantastic. The lounge in Zurich may well be my favourite in the world and the service on board was close to perfect. The food was extremely well executed and presented. Indeed the table setting was basically indistinguishable from that of a restaurant, no miniature or plastic pieces of tableware in sight. Most importantly the bed was very comfortable and I managed a deep sleep in the middle of the day without any problems.

REVIEW – Radisson Blu Arlandia (Stockholm Airport)

Club Carlson has a comprehensive presence at ARN, OSL and CPH and at ARN airport there are actually two Radisson Blus! One - Sky City, is closer to theĀ terminal and requires a two minute shuttle ride and this one - Arlandia, which is a five minute complimentary shuttle ride away.

REVIEW – Park Inn by Radisson Copenhagen Airport (CPH)

With the Club Carlson room guarantee I was able to secure a room at exactly the hotel I wanted, when no other options were available, for a 20% surcharge over the standard rate - a fantastic deal. This one elite benefit saved me time, money and potential inconvenience.Ā

REVIEW – Radisson Blu Zurich Airport : Business Class Room

A hotel directly attached to the airport terminal could very easily have rested on its laurels but everything here was a genuine cut above. The design in both the room and the common areas was eye catching and modern. Elite recognition truly went above and beyond and I slept incredibly well
