I posted this somewhere else but not sure it was the right format so reposting in a discussion format.
It appears Marriott will now offer free wifi to ALL Marriott rewards members regardless of their status starting January 1, 2015. Don't get me wrong, I am happy that Marriott is improving their brand and offering more free services to all customers but still can't help think that this is a further regarding of my Platinum benefits.
So let me get this straight, you did away with my free welcome gift and replaced it with a meaningless 500 reward point or $10, you did away with the gift certificates, you upgraded the categories of hotels making my points less valuable and now, one of the few benefits left of being a Platinum member, is no longer exclusive to Platinum members.
Just saying .....
