I just came across the following Tweet from the Courtyard Hotels Twitter account posted last night:
Platinum Member rewards got a little sweeter! Now get 400 Rewards points per stay & a food/beverage item on arrival: http://bit.ly/1cCL0MGt
Good catch jakeal. Who knows, perhaps this is like the old (old) Abbott and Costello, Three Stooges, Catskills, vaudeville, even Lucille Ball sketch - Niagara Falls....slowly, I turn, step by step, inch by inch. Thanks for sharing
Why not gold also--some of us have to stay at other properties in smaller towns where Marriott has no presence but when there is a Marriott property we would appreciate the better perks of CY also......Bill
P.s. use your good offices and maybe they will listen since CY seems to have taken free coffee, newspapers at door and other items away....Thanks! Bill
Anything is an improvement at Courtyard unless it is outside of the United States -- where they actually treat you like special elite members (duh). I would not even consider staying at a Courtyard in the US -- the lowly Fairfields provide at least a free breakfast and the same or more points.
