Table For One?

Road Notes

By Catharine Brockman Kuchar

  • Enjoy a getaway to the Cayman Islands using your Delta SkyMiles. Delta Air Lines began flying there this winter, and SkyMiles members wanting to visit this sunny destination can purchase one coach/economy round-trip ticket for 30,000 miles or one first-class round-trip ticket for 60,000 miles.
  • It won't be long before travelers staying at a Sheraton hotel will be able to enjoy an interactive, in-room service that delivers voice mail, e-mail, faxes and Internet access right over the television. ITT Sheraton Corp. has joined forces with Asia Connect to test the program in Australia; a worldwide rollout is expected sometime this year.
  • With GTE's Air-Land prepaid calling card, you can get as much as 36 percent off standard Airfone rates. Interested? Call (800) 247-3663.
  • Turn your week of business into a weekend escape. Marriott International Inc. now offers a Can't Beat Friday discount, with savings of up to 20 percent off the standard weekend leisure rate, when Friday is included in the stay.
