1 - waived resort fees, at least on award stays like Hyatt
2 - lounge access at Ritz Carlton
3 - your24

Heck, I'd be happy if you could make it the welcome gift. Twice in the past month I was offered voucher coupons that didn't cover the cost of breakfast. I'm looking at you AC Hotel in Dallas and Courtyard outside of Napa.

I totally understand the Ritz-Carlton Club is another level of service and should never be free (unless booking on certain rates for old credit card holders, please let us keep it forever a la the UA Presidential Plus), but it would be nice to have "true" lounge access for Titanium including those fake "beach clubs" that used to lounges now thinly disguised to keep non-paying status holders out.

Not sure its been mentioned but I would request that Titanium Members are allowed to redeem 7 Marriott Moments and say Ambassador 10 or something, at the moment it is restricted for 5 which is good as stops the same people going for them all but as they increase the options and naturally Titanium and Ambassadors will have more points to spend than other members the number of moments you chose should be increased in my opinion

I really hope that what you say is not going to happen!
If so, Bonvoy Lurkers, please, tell it now so I can stop my efforts in reaching 51 nights for this year again!

ahahahah, I mean, sure this would be great, but it can't possibly be implemented unless the number of SNAs is drastically reduced. I'd be happy with them just fixing the current implementation so they actually clear at 5 days when the requested room type is available.

I’ve got an Sna request for an upcoming stay. Hotel shows my desired room type as available. This Friday is the start of the five day window. Let’s see what happens

How about a mini bar? Most properties I'm at don't have one.

1.) No resort fees
2.) Cancel day of arrival or worse case 24 hours prior. Current policies at most properties don't mix well with some business travellers schedules.

Check out the Freddy Awards joke!

Marriott obviously pays off the Freddy Awards since Marriott won in every category as they continue to lose their most loyal customers at an alarming rate.
In order for it to be true that Marriott actually won all these top spots they must have replaced all the seasoned road warriors from SPG that are disgusted with Marriottís point earning, redemption, upgrades and customer service with new younger customers that donít know what little value they are receiving.
Iíve gone from 70% SPG nights in 2016 to 50% Marriott/SPG nights in 2017 to 30% Marriott/SPG nights in 2018 to easily less than 20% Marriott Bonvoy nights anticipated in 2019.
Myself & many others have significantly reduced our business with Marriott in 2019 now that the real damage & destruction done to SPG members is now complete. I guess we will see what the Freddy Awards are for 2019. If Marriott Bonvoy is still at the top of the list then I know the awards are rigged so no need to pay attention to them in the future...

I would like the breakfast option to be mandatory buffet or a dollar amount towards the menu. I get really tired of the exact same buffet of scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes at every hotel and would prefer to be able to order off the menu.
