We have been traveling with the rewards program since the mid 1970's. We can remember when for 100,000 points one could get 4 tickets to Europe, plus two Marriott stays - one three days and one four days, plus a rental car. Prices have changed but the quality of the Marriott Rewards progam has not. We own Marriott property and are now looking forward to out third trip to Spain. Last year was Greece, with a cruise. We are only pleasantly surprised by some unique feature, but never disappointed with Marriott. Thank you.
