Do you know when we can start booking starwood hotels at Marriott.com?
I will like to know also. Looking at booking Starwood in Santa Fe for October
troytraveler, the reservation platforms are still completely separate. You can link your Marriott and SPG accounts together now, and transfer points back and forth. Further, there is a link on the Marriott site to take you to Starwood and vice versa. It likely won't be until year's end or later before you see the reservations systems combined.
They are missing an opportunity here. I have yet to stay in a Starwood property. Since the points are convertible, that solves one out of three problems. The second being the SPG website is annoying when trying to research or book a property. But the biggest issue keeping me away is the fact the number of elite nights don't transfer with the points. If I could keep my nights, to more easily renew Platinum and work towards my lifetime status, I would be way more likely to book an SPG property. I guess until they fully integrate, i will stay away.
Totally agree with your second issue, the website is very annoying and glad it isn't just me that thinks that way.
I hope to heard something pretty soon. In my case the nights count so for now no starworld stays for me
