It would be nice if it were somehow possible for hotels to somehow post the presence of Insiders at the hotel, or at least in the CL. For example, it would be a pleasant surprise to arrive and see a board that said Foxglove, Pluto77, and Misterchk are here, tonight. It would make possible, some impromptu meetups and would add a bit to our trips. It might even add a bit of pleasant anticipation, as I looked for such a display.
Does anyone have any thoughts about this idea?
I've stayed at a lot of IHG hotels where there is either a white board or a electronic bulletin board that welcomes you as a Spire Elite, Platinum, (insert your rewards level here), etc.....with a posting of your first initial and last name. I've never seen this at Marriott, but I have received a call form the GM of the hotel after check-in or a form letter in my suite welcoming me with my name and rewards category on it from time to time from Marriott.
I can't see the CL attendant taking this on. What's simpler is having a white/chalk board in the CL lounge where an Insider can write their own screen name and leave a note for others. So, I go to the lounge, see that phctourist is on the board, I can add my name and a note that muppewrangler will be back in the lounge @7pm for drinks.
I love the idea myself. It would be great fun to be able to connect by surprise with many of you.
I've seen the Elite board in a lobby of maybe two properties, one of which is no longer a Marriott brand. It had your first name and last initial showing and it worked great for asking the Front Desk Associate to put you in a location FAR away from some you knew, just because!!!
