Hi everyone, i saw that this is a really nice community from reading through different threads and posts and i hope to receive some help from you guys.
I've been a marriott member for about 2 years now and it has been a great experience! i managed to achieve a silver status before i stopped travelling for a year. But i'll be travelling again in the coming months and am looking forward to stay in some marriott hotels as a form of celebration for my fiancee's birthday.
i emailed marriott at online.account@marriott about this and requested to be signed up for taste of gold/platinum but was rejected outright and was told that "We regret to inform you that neither Taste of Elite Challenges nor status matches are available at this time."
However, i've been seeing some posts online about their current status matches and as if right now, i'm not too sure if the management has halted all challenge/taste promotions or did it just apply to me.
i'd most likely still be booking marriott properties as i know from experience that marriott is superior in terms of service and room comfort, but of course it would be fantastic to be able to make our stay more memorable with a taste challenge.
