Round and round in circles now....over and over... a BS “An unexpected error has occurred” error message keeps occurring when attempting to book a room on Marriott.com when using  Chrome for iOS and doubt this platform or device dependent.

 

After careful investigation, it turns Marriott is blocking users who use Adblock. Is this how merger synergies are obtained? First you knowingly sit on a data breach for 4 years as to avoid derailing your merger....then you appear to hire, attract and retain incompetent web developers and/or pisss poor business owners who can’t even manage day one rules of web design. W.T.F.? Or wait....perhaps Marriott rolls with  Agile, where everything a complete clusterf  “free for all”, zero accountability, zero ownership atomized development process.

 

Marriott.com Error Message at Booking

 

HEY MARRIOTT....IF THESE FORUMS AREN'T JUST ECHO CHAMBERS - Please fix your damn site code!! One or more of your spyware/tracking/analytics sites is causing a hard stop in your booking process. Booking and paying YOU money should not be dependent on YOUR BS analytics trackers loading when nearly 25% of users block this kind of crapp! You’ve already broken users trust with loosing all our data to hackers, so I will not be sacrificing even more of MY privacy, just to book a room so you can have yet another “whoopsie” moment 4 years down the road....

 

Marriott Analytics/Trackers/Spyware loaded at final booking causing “unexpected error” (when blocked) resuling in FAILED booking!!
