Platinum Arrival Gift

Curious question as it does not happen to me very often.  I am staying at the Henry Autograph Hotel in Dearborn MI.  It is a nice hotel but they were swamped when I checked in yesterday (Friday).  The woman at the desk was by herself.  She quickly checked me in offered me breakfast vouchers (Platinum Premier) and said thank you.  I thought that it was off she said nothing of the gift.  I went back down the next morning to ask about it and she was there again.  I asked why I was not offered it and she told me she just gave me the points, no apology nothing.  Having been Platinum the last 12 years I can count on one hand how often this happens and usually I am called as soon as I get to my room to apologize and ask what I would like and usually receive both points and a gift.  This woman saw no need.  At this point I am curious what the group would say I do besides just suck it up and chalk it up to poor customer service at the Henry?  Thanks

    I was at the Marriott Towson Conference Center last week and was never offered my Platinum arrival gift bonus. This has become the norm for me, and I still haven't had points posted so I don't even know if I received the 500 bonus points.

    Every time that I checked into a Marriott property, since becoming platinum, I have been offered a choice.  If someone treated me as you were treated, I would have spoken to the property manager.

     

    I have rarely received poor service at any Marriott property and can count on the fingers of one hand, the number of times that I complained and did not receive a satisfactory response.

      Photourist - I agree the vast majority of the time the service is spotless and appreciated.  Did not happen at this property.  I usually do not hesitate to find a manager but when I went back the next day and the same women was there and quoted policy on late check out but said I gave you points for the arrival I gave up.  Believe it is a management issue.

        jcampbell,  I have, on a few occasions(very few),  experienced poor service that could not be straightened out at the hotel.  On one occasion, during an energy crisis, the hotel actually wanted to impose an energy surcharge on my bill, even though I had a confirmed rate without such a charge.  I called Marriott HQ and when it was time to check out, the surcharge had been deleted from my bill.

         

        I have stayed with Marriott for more than 48 years.  My first stay, on my wedding night,

        came when there were only three Marriott hotels in the world.  During that time, I have usuallybeen impressed by the service, in general.  What has amazed me, has been the way Marriott reacts when problems occur.

            Well, we're closer to the action, but our view is not nearly as nice! The plan is to head down and join the crowd.
