Terrible Program Changes

The changes to the Marriott Rewards program are absolutely  terrible.  Like others, I use my reward points to book hotels one week at a time (generally category 6 or 7 properties).  With the new rewards structure it would cost me approximately 60% more points to book a category 6 or 7 hotel reward for one week.  Who does this benefit?  I do not care about the free night when I book 4 nights because almost all of my stays are a week in length.  I am only a silver elite member and there is no change in the bonus percentage that I would receive.  In addition, the extra bonus percentage platinum members would receive in no way makes up for the added points it would take to obtain a hotel reward for one week in a category 6 or 7 property.  I really wish Marriott Rewards would have polled elite members about this new structure before it was instituted.  I am sure they would have received similar feedback and thought twice about changing the program.  Maybe it is time to be more loyal to another hotel program!
