Who's marketing idea was this?
I'm several years Platinum MR (117 nights so far this year), have never stayed at a Starwood facility- 0 Starpoints. Their facility locations are incompatible with my business needs. Yet Marriott only allows me a Starwood program for loyalty bonuses?? What young corporate recent MBA grad thought this was a great 'conquer the world' idea? Trying to force a most loyal Marriott customer to increase the occupancy rates of an overpriced Starwood acquisition won't work. This is just flushing goodwill for Marriott.
