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.
The lounge is so quiet, cavernous and awe inspiring that it doesn't feel like a space in which to kick back and have fun. If you're expecting the Virgin Clubhouse you'll be disappointed. It is however one of the most striking and interior spaces I've ever spent time in. The calm and tranquility is a world away from the airport terminal below
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.
The design of this lounge is mostly great and I really like the dedicated travel centre and the coffee.
The food selection is poor though and the area by the windows could definitely do with some privacy screens and tables to break the space up a bit.
Overall a decent, well run lounge but nothing worth arriving at the airport early for.
SWISS shorthaul business is quite a bare bones affair. No jacket hanging, an economy seat, no centre table and no hot food.
The service was very efficient and friendly but this was ultimately an economy experience in everything but name.
