I'm rather sad that they've gone down this route, though they clearly have the right to do so. It does represent a significant devaluing of LTP(P) that many have built up over many years. Assuming...

Hi

Naive question here. How do I take advantage of the travel package AND the BA promo? Do I simply order the travel package on-line at Marriott.com and the bonus Avios are credited automatically?

Unfortunately this is a real problem in the UK. Many of my stays come up 'short' when scrutinised. You could almost say it's policy at some properties.:mad:
