Looks like we have an update on SNA's. Found this posted by the starwood lurker on FT.
MVC, All-suite hotels, Vistana properties were expected. I understand Aloft, Design Hotels, Protea and Element too. Seeing RC in the list is pretty disappointing. They never upgrade anyone to suites usually - even though T&C clearly says "Suites are included for platinums only". Was looking forward to using SNA's at my favorite brand in the Marriott portfolio.
No free breakfast, no SNA's - is marriott hoping people would not stay at RC? Hope they keep the 2 night credit for every paid night - else I see no reason whatsoever to stay at another RC.
Many SPG rabid members tend to like Luxury Collection hotels - after my stay last year at the Equinox I was a bit disappointed. Loved the property - but platinum treatment was only so-so. I have an upcoming stay at the Tambo Del Inka in Peru in August. If I do get SNA's will try applying them for my stay.
