Now compare that with the way Fairmont handled it. Of course, Fairmont didn't have a points system, but you could earn airline miles on each stay. In the rare event that your points didn't post after your stay, you could either call HQ or send an e-mail to the "frequentflyer" address. If during business hours, Peggy (I wonder if she's still there?) would e-mail you back to say she was looking into it, and your points would get posted quickly. No arguing. No repeated phone calls needed. No having to send in proof of your stay or eligibility for the points. They did the investigation for you, and solved the problem quickly. If after hours, you'd hear from her at the start of business the next day.
