Thanks Sharon for highlighting the importance of updated info. I thought this news was not so new since closing of Ren Munich got its own thread: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/marri...l#post16070086

CC-CY has always been going above and beyond the corporate requirements and decided that they only do this for Platinums was their "business case" for this, so the East's competitive reason is to mimic this, not the Marriott's (corporate-mandated) policy of Gold and Plats receiving free breakfast is the reason behind this.

Marriott T&Cs say that G/Ps get breakfast daily at JW, Marriott, Ren, Autograph Collection. CYs are not required to provide breakfast to either G or P per T&Cs. CY-CC offers it as a perk for Plats & as djohannw notes, CY-E matches the policy for competitive reasons. It's unusual for CYs (outside of Asia) to offer brekkie, but the few that do usually limit it to Plats.

Cheers.

Thumbs down Munich Airport Marriott reducing breakfast options for elites

I just checked in to the Marriott Munchen Airport Hotel, Freising Germany. I've been here many times--all wonderful stays. I went downstairs to eat breakfast...always love the breakfasts here--especially the omelets. Very good. Well, I was politely informed that Marriott Rewards instructed them to now offer Golds/Platinums a continental breakfast only. The kind receptionist informed me that Marriott told them all hotels without a lounge are only to offer that. I was perplexed...I am a Platinum, and since I attained Lifetime Gold have switched many of my nights to SPG (where I'm closing in on Lifetime Platinum). So I clearly was not aware of this downgrade, directed at Marriott's most loyal members. And since the major devaluation given to Marriott Platinums by giving United Airlines top tier immediate Marriott Gold, I will admit I pulled back most of my business. How can a company sell out ITS most loyal patrons for those of another company? I don't get that. And now, with Marriott directing hotels to only give continental breakfast--why would anyone continue patronizing Marriott Hotels? I mean, there is no chance of a suite upgrade--ever. The main thing Marriott had going for them was the breakfast--and now that's gone?!! And to boot--there is no premium internet, with higher speeds for Platinums! My colleagues (all non-status) have the same internet I have...which is basically useless! For me, the writing is on the wall. I left HHonors back in 2005-6, for similar reasons. And sadly, Marriott is following directly in that path!

Did they only let you take a few items in the restaurant or they just gave you a plate of food?

I just got back from Dusseldorf Renaissance and I didn't take the brekkie because they only offered it to 2 (we had kids with us and for 24 Euros we can buy tons of food). Before this change, we were all allowed to have free breakfast in the restaurant.

It's surprising that you believe that. Since a free breakfast is of such importance to you, another hotel might be a better choice.

There are so many factually incorrect things in this post I don't know where to start:

Simply not true. Each hotel can decide what to do. At a Ren in Atlanta I was at a few weeks ago I was given up to $15/person to use at the restaurant.

How do golds effect your life? A more crowded lounge? Less upgrades? As a plat your upgrade percentage shouldn't change.

Maybe the hotel you stayed at didn't have premium internet. Most full service hotels do. The free premium speed makes streaming netflix, etc work very nicely. I appreciate the perk.

Looks like you feel Marriott isn't the hotel for you any more. If you want to leave, that's a decision you need to make.

Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.

Hm.... you were already not so loyal. You moved away, they reduced the offering. It looks like you have no problems with your move.

You are misunderstanding what Marriott status is. If it doesn't work you try a SPG platinum challenge, but I promise the breakfast gaurantee isn't any better.

The minute a thread starts "A hotel employee told me..." you know it's about to have things stated that are not actual Marriott policy.
