Goodness knows, it wouldn't be the first time. I thought I had read somewhere that once the merger was complete on August 18th, that Courtyards would offer free breakfast. When I checked into the Courtyard in Waterloo Iowa today, they said that I could either get the bonus points OR get a $10 food and beverage credit. I was thinking this benefit was already in place prior to the merger. So: 1. Am I confused? 2. Is the hotel staff confused? or 3. Are they either intentionally or unintentionally trying to screw me over? I it's 1 or 2, I can live with that, but if it is 3, I will be quite disappointed, to put it mildly.
