The Complete List of FlyerTalk Award Winners | The Gate
STARWOOD AND HILTON Seem to be the hotel category winners - MARRIOTT not on the winner's list!!!!
Why would anyone on this site be surprised? Marriott has devalued the loyalty, and has many unhappy participants. Guess awards mean nothing to them, just like us, the loyal members, so how can they win if we won't ( and shouldnt) vote for them?
It's true. Between the skyrocketing redemptions, closed lounges, CY lack of brekkies, and the "taste of" that so many people play, the program definitely has a different feel than a few years back.
I wonder why Hilton made it on the list? Their devaluation was worst than what's happening here... Would have thought maybe Hyatt or Fairmont, etc.
It is easier to become gold in Hilton and they treat golds better than Marriott treats Platinum. My friend who likes Hilton does not know why I like Marriott. I think Hilton's devaluation hit some upper level hotels more but the rest, not bad.
I see, well it's SUPER easy to get gold... just get the Citi HHonors card!
So, if not Marriott, I'm guessing you'd choose Hilton? Or would you choose Hyatt, SPG, IHG?
I actually prefer Marriott Hotels but points are easier to come by with other brands. Hilton HHonors and Starwood practically give them away lately!
It seems that if you can get Gold, as kh mentions, with just getting the card, than it is only a matter of time before almost everybody has that level. Then the value of that level will become like Marriott Platinum, where you get no extra respect for being at that level.
Indeed tryt, just like the airlines.
That might be coming next year... devalue this year, reduce benefits next? We'll see!
Probably because Marriott has gotten greedy with its points program.
Does anybody really care who flyer talk award winners are? Are these that big a deal when deciding where to stay?
I do not use Flyertalk to determine where to stay but rather to read about tips and other lesser known specials offered by airlines, hotels and the like. Actually. Free Frequent Flyer Miles is the MOST informative!
I do...I visit Flyer Talk frequently and get very good advice... and many more visit that site than Marriott Insiders. So I don't understand why you are so negative about Flyer Talk...And by the way, not a lot of baseball discussion on that site!!!!
Like JD Power rankings, you never know.
looks like I hit a nerve with some of you flyer talk fans. Relax, it was just a question. Negative or not, just a question.
We'll have to do baseball on Flyer Talk then
Actually these sites (no matter which one) are reflections of individual opinions, some planted I am sure, and some overly critical (also planted), so I need to find the ground truth in all this before I make up my mind. I normally ask friends who've been of stayed for advice--that's my "flyer talk" source.
I never know why they pick the hotels they do. It's like movie ratings, I pay no attention because I love the movies I love no matter what people say. So I stay where I stay based on what I like and nothing more. I'm surprised Hyatt would be on the list, have had horrid stays at a number of their resorts.
Imagine my surprise !
GO CUBBIES !
