After reading the new terms, I am still unclear regarding whether AAA rates (are they considered travel industry) or conference/group meeting rates would qualify for earning points. I use both frequently and will likely change my hotel selection if they no longer earn points.
I just stayed at the JW in Austin for 3 nights on a conference rate. I checked out on Thursday and still haven't received points, so I will see whether this is one of the 'excluded' rates. I received points for my stay last year for the same conference. If these no longer earn points or night credits, I will stay at another chain.
Recently, I have had two missing stays that I had to call MR about and got instant credit. Other stays have been taking up to 10 days. it does seem night and point credits used to hit sooner than they have been at least for me. I seriously doubt they will do away with credit for AAA stays.....if M does away with credits for AAA they will lose me as a customer. Just sayin.
