Recently received correspondence via mail that in full service properties, platinum members will receive free breakfast for two. This is a great addition but leads to a question. I was recently staying at a Courtyard and after talking to front desk manager, realized that this is the only brand in the Marriott system I believe that doesn't offer a free breakfast to all its guests (like Residence or Fairfield) or through this new program. Was surprised to see that Courtyard was left out especialy with all the dollars recently spent across the chain to upgrade the look and image. Not a complaint but more surprising. As I travel to a lot of smaller markets, full service properties are not always available.
Any idea why Courtyard was left out?
