I'm not saying they are worthless for everyone. For me it's not worth anything as my travel is either business (where the client pays) or long holidays (where I don't stay in Cat 5 hotels and in any...

I absolutely get the combined nights. That makes sense.

But combined years doesn't (to me at least). Let's say in any given year, I did 50 nights with Starwood and another 75 with Marriott, so...

I have such a shockingly low success rate on SNAs since they were launched that I pleaded with Starwood to give other options at 50 nights, but alas the other options are even more worthless to me,...

So it is. I wonder, now it's no longer a W, if that means we won't have to put up with a noisy nightclub, awful lounge music and staff with excessive hair gel.

Hmm well I never knew that. I wish I'd seen your message before checking out. I'd have changed my details to a RC account. However, I just tried to create one (as I'm back in an RC hotel next...

Angry Awful property

As someone reasonably new to Marriott (I'm an SPG ambassador refugee), I decided to book into this hotel (a one-bedroom suite) earlier this week at the last minute as travel plans changed. I was...

Perhaps I missed this (being an SPG man) but are you saying that a stay at a RC is better booked using a RC rewards number than a Marriott one because it earns more posts?

I can't see any reference to it at all on the Starwood website. Has it gone altogether?

Counting of "nights" for multiple rooms: authoritative answer

I have an authoritative answer from the head of the Ambassador programme, who kindly emailed me last night.

For the purpose of elite requalification, members will only receive 'night' credit for...

This to me is the key question. Unfortunately I'm travelling so am not able to get to the London ambassador launch party tonight and ask. Does anyone know the answer to it?

I find the addition of the Ritz-Carlton hotels to be good. The rest of the brands are not really to my liking.

I really don't understand this, nor why RC has their own loyalty programme. I understand that RC is fully-owned by Marriott. It's pretty poor customer experience to deny points for incidentals as a...

They're, again, missing out on the key Passover revenue stream.

Mine arrived just before Christmas.

We also got a cute 'Starwood Preferred Baby' babygrow with a nice note from our (good) ambassador. Alas the babygrow all but disappeared on the first wash.

In terms of ADR? Higher published pricing than any other SPG and Marriott. Not anywhere near as much as the Widder, Baur au Lac or Dolder Grand.

I had the same thoughts but was reliably informed that the decision to drop cat apparently has nothing to do with quality but to do with average revenues achieved.

A related question. If I book (and pay for) two rooms at a Marriott hotel, will I accrue points for both rooms, or only one?

With SPG, I accrue points for a max of three rooms.

Finally made LTP. 647 SPG nights since 2007 (plus quite a few with Marriott).
