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 – Radisson Blu Zurich Airport : Business Class Room

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.

REVIEW – Das Stue, Berlin (Embassy Room)

The embassy room category at Das Stue can be quite varied, so it is worth being specific with your requests at the time of booking. I can imagine that this room is particularly popular in the warmer months, due to the absolutely enormous balcony.

REVIEW – Shangri-La Sydney : Deluxe Grand Harbour View Room

Given that we were arriving late into Sydney I decided to look for somewhere close to the Park Hyatt, where we'd be spending the following four nights, without breaking the bank. Sydney is an interesting city for hotels, the area around the Opera House has a number of options around the 350AUD mark: a Four Seasons - which many say is the worst in the entire portfolio; an Intercontinental - which has a Club Lounge that is widely praised but also has some very basic looking rooms and the hotel I decided on: The Shangri-La.
