New Marriott Ambassador Program Like Starwood??

 

SO, had to read about a new program that is copying the Ambassador a program from Starwood in a Press release instead of getting an email or reading about the program on the main Marriott site. Program apparently has a soft launch this May...was wondering if any of the Mods have any info???

    The only info posted here is this:

     

    Announcing Three New Benefits: Experiences Marketplace, Elite Concierge Service, Guaranteed Late Checkout

     

    Most of the comments are about the slippery wording of the "up to" 4pm "guaranteed" late checkout, but like you I immediately identified the package as an attempt to move Marriotts benefits towards those offered by Starwood.

     

    Interesting times await!

    And in fact the slippery wording has already been removed from the 4pm late checkout, now it's a guaranteed time, according to http://viewfromthewing.boardingarea.com/2016/04/22/after-blowback-marriott-guarantees-elite-4pm-late-checkout/

    Great question, texaschef.  When it comes to this program, we do not know much more than what was included in the original announcement.  A select group of Elite members will be selected to have a Personal Concierge so that their travel experience is both seamless and tailored to their individual needs.  The concierge will be able to reserve on-property amenities like restaurants, spa treatments and golf, as well as make arrangements for special occasions.  The service will launch in late May first for U.S. members of Marriott Rewards traveling worldwide and will continue to expand.  As more information becomes available, we'll be sure to post here on Insiders first!

    Sooooo, it looks like I am enrolled in this program. I understand that bugs and glitches

    may take place on any new initiative, but I must say I am a little disappointed about how

    the beginning of this program is kicking off.

     

    I found out I was enrolled in the program not by email or phone call (which apparently is the

    way that my fellow Ambassadors have been notified), but found out when I called

    to get a copy of a folio from a recent stay.

     

    I was/am an ambassador with SPG and when that milestone happened, boy did they make

    a big deal about it and I truly felt valued.

     

    We shall see how this new program works with Marriott, it's just too bad I had to find out all of the

    details, how-to's, and specific program info not from Marriott, but from other people enrolled in the program.
