I am completely disappointed. Being a platinum customer for last 8 years and the return I will get from these new rules really upsets me. I can understand that now we will get more points (in the form of 20% increase in the bonus) but the points required for the rewards has gone up more than what you are giving to the members. This, as well as the difficulity I've experienced with using points, is why I have revised my preference for hotels during travel. I have not elected to stay with Marriott in over a year due to the Rewards program and the constraints imposed by the program.
