Platinum Elite Amenity gift?

I actually just checked into Waikiki Beach Resort -- for years across various Marriott properties I had received an amenity gift of usually a choice of points or some form of food (snacks, etc)

This whole year 2013 @ Waikiki Beach I have been offered a choice of beverage and snack.


Tonight, checked in and they said "we are no longer doing that -- it's now a 1-time $10 towards food or 500 points.


Just checking if this is now a standard, or if amenity gifts vary by location that much? Anybody else experience the same at other properties or even this one and possibly how long has this been the case?


To be honest -- this property doesn't even offer a complimentary bottle of water in the room - so knowing that when I check in after a flight from the mainland and can get H2O and a snack before bed is something I've counted on :-)
