For the first time since joining Marriott Rewards, we're disappointed with the Marriott Rewards program. The approximately 63% increase in the # of points required for a 7 night stay is difficult to understand and hard to accept. With challenging economic conditions worldwide, a reasonable increase in prices and points for services is acceptable. 63% is not reasonable.
We, together with other faithful "insiders" who have taken time to post, request a reconsideration of this new structure planned for January, 2009 implementation.
