I am very surprised at the number of hotel reviews which are being posted on Marriott Insiders for the last couple of months.  I spent very little time on the computer while we were in Europe for 7 weeks; however, I do remember a contest at the beginning of the summer which encouraged posting reviews.  Is there still a contest going on?   It seems like most of the reviews are written by Insiders new to the site.  Is this part of the social media trend?  As one of our "experienced" Insiders used to say: "just wondering".
