I am amazed at the note on my bed upon my recent check in at the Marriott City Center in Salt Lake that I can receive 500 bonus points in lieu of maI'd service for up to three consecutive nights . Who at Marriott thought this was a good idea? I am looking for service not do it yourself. and then still, "the envelope please." Time to go back to higher standards and not cutting corners!
Then just get service. It's not like they aren't going to provide it. I think it's mostly to save on water and stuff. Plus some people don't like housekeeping coming in during the stays so that's just a little added bonus.
