Marriott mPulse - anybody else had an invite?

I just got this email

 

"Dear John

Marriott Hotels & Resorts is launching a small private online community called Marriott mPulse and would like to extend to you the opportunity to participate.

 

What is it:

Think of this small private online community as a cross between Facebook and an online focus group.  We're aiming to create a unique community of expert travelers like yourself, who have informed opinions on traveling and full service hotels, and want to share those insights. We will be sharing new designs, food & beverage ideas, service programs, senior executive questions, etc. and this is an opportunity to speak your mind and directly impact the thinking of a leading hotel brand to improve your travel experiences."

 

There is a short survey to see if you meet the criteria for membership and you get the result in a few days.

 

If I am "lucky" enough to be selected the first thing I will tell them is that the survey was completely US centric with questions such as "where do you live - [I]city and state[/I]. Hopefully London, England won't cause too much confusion

(For each location tag, you will be guided through a 3-step process to add (1) a city and a state or a city and a country, (2) a Marriott brand, and (3) a Marriott hotel.)

    I never got such an invitation, but would absolutely agree that it is US-centric.  It's one of the reasons I have always suggested (as mentioned in an earlier post today) that dollar(equivalent)s spent should count as much as nights toward status.  I almost always stay on research trips in Europe and the Middle East, and between the much higher prices and the currency exchange rate, I pay a ridiculous amount for about 4-5 nights compared to almost anywhere I could stay in the US.  Based on last year's 10-12 trips abroad (thanks to sabbatical!) I calculated that it would have equaled about the same amount of nights in terms of stays as if I had stayed a whole year in a Fairfield Inn or Courtyard in the US. But I have nowhere near the nights I need to maintain status even then, partially because I was in locations (Avignon, Cordoba, Venice (except for one night at the airport) and several other places where there was or is no Marriott presence.

      Thanks for the link.  I took the survey.  probably won't be selected to participate since I don't communicate via facebook, etc.

        nuhusker, I thought the same thing as I'm not a facebooker either.  I had to laugh when they asked me to break out my stays by property type and # nights...don't they have that on hand easier than I do?:)

          shannongrates -- I agree with your assessment and am laughing with you about the same thing.  I could only guess anyway, since I don't keep that information real handy.

    I took the survey and it appeared to me that where appropriate there was the capability to list your country if not US.  maybe you took a different survey than the one linked below by shannongrates.

      Yes, I did -- I got this random email, which I usually don't look at, but because it offered me 500 pts in my hotel program of choice, I took it.  I still don't quite know how that 500 miles will be credited, since I was given a choice of hotel reward programs, unless it was embedded in the link and would only respond if I answered Marriott.

    Holy smokes.  I was interested in participating but.... Good Lord, that survey.  As the others say.... who can remember how many nights you've stayed in each brand, etc?  I guess I'll rely on The Chosen to report back.  lol
