Marriott’s Secret Cobalt Elite Status

When Marriott launched their new loyalty program last August they came out with new elite levels and benefits. And when they renamed their program ‘Bonvoy’ in February they also renamed the top two published elite levels. Marriott’s public elite tiers are: Silver: 10-24 nights per year, I do not consider this level to offer meaningful benefits. Gold: 25-49 nights per year, you get 2 pm late check-out and hopefully avoid the room over the HVAC. Platinum: 50-74 nights per year, you get 4 pm late c...

You Expect Way Too Much From Marriott, Cut Them Some Slack

Starwood customers simply aren't used to Marriott customer service, and they think what they're experiencing is something wrong with the program.

How Marriott Award Availability Restrictions Actually Work

arriott is no worse than it used to be, except for IT issues that seem to be gradually getting sorted but remain frustrating. Starwood properties are mostly the same, although with lower points redemption prices at the best properties come more restrictions on availability. Eventually we should see improvements in Marriott availability, compared to what we have seen in the past, starting next year with fewer 'high demand dates' at some hotels. Perhaps Flueck's commitment that we'll reach the S...

Different Travelers Want Different Things - So How Do You Know What Hotel Technology You Need? | By David Millili

Many retail brands embrace generational marketing these days, breaking down their demographics and online/social media campaigns by what they know about baby boomers, Gen X, millennials, and the up-and-coming Gen Z generation, those born in the mid-1990s. But for experiential products, like hotels, the concept must be stretched to include the consumer journey. The whole experience and the way it is received (or not) varies based on the age of the traveler, so much so that flags such as Ma...
