Marriott’s View of Loyalty Prevails: Al Maha Won’t Charge Guests for Meals, Activities After All

Hotel loyalty programs face a unique challenge that airlines don't. Airlines set the rules and provide the product directly. Hotels have to get properties which are often owned and even managed separately to comply, with benefits like upgrades delivered consistently by individual employees at a front desk perhaps thousands of miles away. They rely on individual hotels and even employees to comply. Embedded in a loyalty program as well is a philosophy of how to treat guests redeeming their poin...

48 Hours in Ogden

Despite being nestled in rather pious Mormon territory, the streets ran amok with prostitution, gambling, murder, and drug use. Ogden once carried a reputation of lawlessness so pervasive, that even Al Capone is rumored to have shied away from visiting the “Chicago of the West.”  The Ogden metropolitan area has worked hard to overcome its sullied past to become the second-largest metropolitan area in Utah,...
