New System Requires More Points than before for Rewards!

I've been dutifully building my Marriott points up for several years now in anticipation of getting a free seven day stay at a category 6 hotel in Hawaii.  Under the old system that takes 130,000 points.  Under the new system it will take 180,000!  And I'm supposed to be happy about this?  I appreciate the no black out dates, but otherwise the new system is worse!  Even if you go 10 consecutive days (including the 2 "free" nights) that still costs you 240,000 pts in the new system versus 208,000 pts in the old system.  Do the math, this new system sticks it to the average Joe.  Hey Marriott, way to entice further travel in this sinking economy!

(For each location tag, you will be guided through a 3-step process to add (1) a city and a state or a city and a country, (2) a Marriott brand, and (3) a Marriott hotel.)
