I had numerous conversations with the Director of Sales on 237 S. Tryon Street. This situation is this I am a platinum member and I am responsible for managing projects that equates to several thousand nights per year. I anticipate having 50 or so project colleagues coming in for short term to long term stays this year and 100 or so next year. I myself expect to be staying full time in Charlotte for the next few years. I am working with a large global firm and have a number of people needing stays at my direction. After numerous conversations, I can't get the Director of Sales to honor the corporate rate on a regular and consistent basis. It is the dead of winter and the worse time of the year for the financial services business. I have never had anyone so unwilling to work with a rewards member much less with a customer that presents a significant amount of business. So I am pulling my business and going to the Hilton across the street with a better standard rack rate than corporate discount at the Marriott Courtyard City Center in Charlotte, NC!!! At the Hilton, I feel both myself and my people will not only be welcomed, but will actually not be treated as an inconvenience.
