We all (hopefully) recall that 1993 movie with Bill Murray as the jaded television reporter who is stuck in time in Western Pennsylvania and his quest to break free.

Bravo for great suggestions, SteppingStones! I agree with all of your suggestions, but #1 is most relevant to me since most hotels abroad are much more expensive than those in the US and Canada, except in our biggest cities or resorts.
I also like suggestion #3, which comes automatically with HHonors.
I think all are great suggestions that Marriott should seriously consider.
