After all the inconsistencies that have surfaced on this property, The Professor, SS(NYC), Jasper and others, why do I want to spend $500 a night for seven nights and NOT even know if I am going to get a nice room. With a loved on, after flying all day, I do not want to have happen to me what happened to another traveler last year, who was told his lousy room was the only one available. The other thing they want to charge $25 extra per day for 2 hours of bike riding, kids meals, and preferred tee times. All of which I do not do!
"When you have to worry about something, you don't need it"! I am going to go with what I know, a two br suite at a RI (For about 1/2 the price), full kitchen ( I like to sometimes cook), and a full breakfast, I can bring back to my peaceful room. My recent experiences were so good at RI's in Branson, KC, and Williamsburg, I just hope this RI is as good.
Again, I know a RI is no Camelback, but at least i know what I am getting, and getting it for a whole lot less. My new Marriott Gift card would not come close to covering what the cost would have been at Camelback, but it will at the RI!
Thanks for the advice, but No, I am not going to call and here "We'll do the best we can"!
I have heard that many times and I am not a "Beggar", I have over 25 years in this program and should not have to "Beg". I made a mistake at the The Seelbach Hilton, in Louisville, when she said "We'll do the best we can", as a Diamond Hilton member I looked at the "Closet's" she wanted me to stay in and said NO! Wound up in the worst Marriott, I have ever stayed in, Louisville North, Springhill Suites, but that was my choice/mistake.
When I travel, I am basically alone, not part of a convention, and have no real leverage, so sometimes it works to my advantage, but mostly it hurts my chances.
I will take less points from RI, but enjoy having my 2 br suites.
