Breakfast policy worldwide?

Hi Michelle,

You stated that the 'no breakfast on weekends' had been policy for many years.  Although I rarely stay in the U.S., on all previous occasions where I did (except Courtyards), I was given a free breakfast or CL access until last year at the Boston Copley Place.  There they gave me a Starbucks voucher for two days. This year at the Chicago Marriott, I was simply told no.

 

I'd like to know if this is a Marriott U.S. policy or a worldwide policy.  Because I have always gotten a free breakfast either at the CL or the hotel restaurant at every Marriott I've stayed in in Europe and the Middle East, even Courtyards.

    Prof,

     

    Did you know that you can send your question directly to Michelle?  There's a "private massage" tab if you click on your moniker. I've used it from time to time. I get quick responses from the folks on here that way. Just an FYI

      Hi PainedPlatinum,

      I considered it but thought it should be more part of the general conversation, since this is obviously a hot topic.  Thank you for all your great posts!

        I figured that's what you were up to... go for it.   I do like Michelle, though. I appreciate the fact that she can give and take without a full bucket of political correctness. I'm not sure how much of her time is spent monitoring the site. If she doesn't answer quickly, don't feel she's ignoring.

          I completely agree and was not directing the question or my criticisms to the Community Manager or Michelle, but rather those who are making decisions on high.  I do think for a policy 'that has not changed,' an awful lot of us seem very surprised.

            In the Allegory of the Cave in the Plato's Republic, only shadows were seen as real.  I'd hope that this discussion brings us into the light (metaphorically) for a change.
