    All,

    One of my favorite threads on the Marriott board is when TUGgers post the view from their balcony -- it's a great tool to get a sense for what the view plane is like from different properties and buildings.

    I do not know if there is a similar thread here on Starwood board, but if not, I hope this catches on.

    Best,

    Greg

    To post the picture into your message, you have to upload the picture to a website like PhotoBucket (free) resize it to be about 700 pixels wide, and then copy and paste the IMG link into your post.

    Hmmm - not sure how to remove it - I can delete your whole post, and you can repost it if you like.
