My favorite benefit is the effective momentum it provides in interacting with associates on a person to person level, thus leading to making the most out of my stays.
Other significant benefits to me; breakfast, high percentage of obtaining rooms with a desired view, Concierge Lounge sodas and waters and at full service - internet.
I don't know what is going on with this site but I think I will pass on it for a few days until it gets straightened out. I have tried posting numerous times to different discussions and it just doesn't want to take it. I key in "test" and it goes right out. What's up with that?????
I think we may have found the culprit. As best as we can currently tell, the issue arises if the browser’s url appears as “https” instead of "http". Try removing the “s” in the url and see if that works. Our team is also looking into fixing whatever is causing the funky url in the first place. We always appreciate your comments, thanks for the perseverance .
I think being seen as loyal to Marriott (an often elusive thing) is number one for me, even if it does not result in any other benefit. Most times, there is a welcome, a recognition, and at times a special upgrade, or other perk, but keeping with the positive impact, I think the acknowledgement is the best thing.
