Free internet at full service properties?

My company will pay for internet access, though I enjoy that when I travel on my dime.

 

Breakfast/Lounge Access?

Weekday travel includes breakfast/lounge access. More and more are adding this on weekends. (That is a property decision.) We actually call seeking those locations for personal travel.

 

Plat Arrival Gift?

Nice touch Twice we have received the $100.00 for not getting our arrival gift.

 

48 hour Plat Guarantee?

This is tricky. I have certainly used it. Sometimes hotels can get around it which is frustrating. No one seems to know the rules for circumventing this "guarantee."

 

Guaranteed room/bed type?

I do LOVE this. Never a disappointment and a nice surprise with an upgrade. i have never been walked.

 

50% Bonus points

THIS is my favorite. I AM A POINT LOVER. We use them for Travel Package (as stated in my blog). I accumulate as many points as I can to leverage into big plans. The 50% bonus points help a lot in building large point totals. This keeps me exclusively Marriott.

 

What do you like best?
