Too bad Marriott has devalued their program for their most "valued" members. I have been a Platinum member for 10+ years staying 120-150 nights per year at Marriott. The last few years I have been almost exclusive Marriott because I felt that they had the best loyalty program, (one year I also acheived Gold at Hilton as well as Platinum at Marriott). Maybe now I'll go for Diamond at Hilton as one of my business collegues has been urging me to do. The greater insult is to present these changes as enhancements!
