I use to get such great rates (yes, you had to really hunt them down in the little tabs across the top), but since the "Member Rate" started showing up as a new program they are sometimes (often) higher than my corporate rate or my AAA rate.
I loved it when I found that little gem of a price! Now I just get extremely discouraged when member rates BARELY are any benefit at all. Yes, at times they can be lower, but really $10 less isn't a MEMBER RATE! And displaying it, when I find it less, only to see that it's Advance Purchase, yuck another disappointment.
Display like Hilton, Stash, others do and give up all rates MR, AAA, Marriott eBreaks, Government, AARP/Sr, MR points, etc. all in one view. Makes me crazy to sort so many times.
Eliminate the Member Rate program and just put it back to a really great rate on the tab. I'd rather spend time hunting down a good little gem of a rate on the old Marriot Rewards Member Rate tab and find an amazing rate $80 instead of a just barely less rate by $2 under publish regular rate or my AAA rate being less than the Member rate by $20. Member rates should be where when I pull it up I say to myself "wow! I'll never find a better rate" Now I search asking myself "could my corporate rate be less?" And lately I've found it is. No exaggeration.
