Some hotels you just want to stay in forever — and the Marriott Medellin is definitely one of them.

Brian sums up his stay by saying that of all the Marriott properties he’s visited, this one was probably the nicest. Complete with two restaurants, a full spa and gym, a rooftop pool and tons of modern amenities in the Junior Suite, this hotel checked nearly every box. It even passed the shower test!

Fallen behind? No worries, catch up with last week’s episode, in which Brian jumped (yes, jumped) out of a helicopter in Guatape, Colombia. And join us every Tuesday and Thursday for new episodes of “Being The Points Guy” — next time, Brian concludes his time in Colombia and flies home on Avianca for the very first time.
