If it was a SPG page it may be in transition. Not that Marriott may have changed their mind.

That link is super unhelpful.
More interested if the standard member discounts are still available!

I ate at a Sheraton Grand on Saturday in a property I am not staying at. I got 20% discount and points. The point receipt they gave me was new and had SPG & Marriott & Ritz on it, different format from previous ones that just said Starwood. NOt sure if this is what you mean by SPG Cravings. But at least some properties are still giving discounts

yes you are right better to make it clear. What I’m talking about : Points and discount (up to 20%) in restaurant and bar even when not hotel guest, just by leaving my spg number.

But im also talking about the discount as an hotel guest.

20% discount at st Regis, saadiyat island, Abu Dhabi, on food, (not bev) as of 26 August 2018.

Yes, appears to be gone, which is a shame.

Most of the same restaurants in APAC are taking part in the new Marriott dining scheme which is fairly similar, however. See here - https://marriottmembersdinemore.com/en

For those in Middle East there is a stunning -30% (food and beverage including alcohol) going on till mid September. SPG properties, don't know about marriott.

they forget to apply you the 30% on food and drinks (summer offer).
Had to call the manager for them to apply it. The leaflet is in the bill holder with infos. It's a stunning offer.

Hmm. I get 30% discount on food and drinks. I live on Saadiyat.

Consistently inconsistent. They were also saying last night that premium WiFi is a choice of gift for Plat Elite. Choose 1 from wifi, breakfast or 1,000 points. I don’t think that’s correct, but I couldn’t be bothered arguing as I hadn’t opted for premium WiFi - I was asking that if I had opted for premium WiFi, would it be deducted from the bill.

Really?
Anyway, I avoid this property for a simple reason : the new F&B manager is a shame for SPG and the new team at the bar is the worst in town, I have never seen such a poor service and the management does not care.
The F&B team is really a problem since 2/3 months at saadiyat imho.
Much better to switch to Corniche St Regis, they have the best team at the bar ever and really deliver. Saadiyat is proud of Budha Bar but they should have a close look at how the bar is managed, huge space for coming back to what it used to be.

That's the most subtle way to say the program is AP only. Let's hope they expand this and get the US turned back on (worldwide would be better).

Does anyone know if I can still earn points by dining at a US SPG hotel without hotel stay?

Thanks!
