I am anxious to hear from our loyal Insiders about your initial stays at Starwood properties. As a platinum or gold rewards member with a status match, did you feel "special" making a SPG stay? How did the hotel treat you? We look forward to hearing all about it.
It doesn't appear that too many of our folks are in a rush to try them out, and this is likely tied to how the initial hybrid program has rolled out. The SPG members seem to have gotten the better end of the arrangement - particularly for golds. However, when all is said and done, it will be about the experiences we have at the newly available properties. Will we feel as special as we do at Marriott?
