Update: As of January 31 2019, I have stayed at all 29 Brands in the Marriott portfolio! I just returned from Marriott Executive Suites, in Panama as my last official property! As a Retired US Army Veteran the travel did hurt, dealing w my physical ailments, but the risk was worth the reward. I got a chance to see some amazing places and meet some amazing people at various Marriott properties. Summary update forth coming. As we would say in the Army after completing temporary duty, Mission Complete!
So... I’m 3 properties away from completing this promotion!! It was therapy for me to get away after two root canals (a long story). Throughout it all I’ve stayed in some amazing places and have met some of the most warm and professional hotel staffers along the way.
To complete the journey I’ll be headed to South Africa and Panama, which I’m really looking forward to. I have amassed many unique facts about each brand too numerous to summarize here and have comments for the MRP powers that be:
1. MRP, please consider a promotion like this in the beginning of a new year, because this required a minimum of 58 nights to complete including at least 44 nights in 2018 (which for me, left me with 120 plus nights last year)
2. There should be a greater point reward for this comprehensive promotion. I now am a walking and talking advertising machine for the MRP. Money cannot buy this type of experience....
3. Please update the spend revenue in the MR app because it didn’t reflect my spend accurately at Marriott properties last year or ytd 2019.
Otherwise I’m pumped up and looking forward to the end game!! Anyone else chasing the current Megabonus?
