The Marriott Brand and Family have decided to devalue your hard-earned MR Points effective 1/15/09.
This has been cloaked as an enhancement, however now 'run of the mill' stays will cost you over 30% more.
Marriott did not increase the value of your existing points, so now when you go to book stays --- you will be using MRMonies that have shrunk 30% or more.
I have been assured my Mr Ed French that these changes were made with his Managements awareness and encouragement (Bill Shaw, JW Marriott, etc), and so in the spirit of openeness I hope that the Marriott screener lets this post go through---
Marriott used to be a Trusted name, but not Anymore---
