    Oh-so-thanks to U & Uggboy for this reminder to "Beware the Ides of March!" ;)
    I have 2 laugh that the PHL Airport Marriott is increasing 5 --> 6 !
    One of my favorites, Marriott Victoria BC Inner Harbour, is also increasing 5 --> 6.
    I'm glad my Cat. 5 freebie from Marriott Visa usually arrives on March 7.

    The one hotel that blows me away is the San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf property is a Cat 7 now...barely a Cat 5 in my book...not upgraded once there.

    Correct, Krypton! IF you change dates after March 15, U may or may not have a problem.

    True if booked already no points extra given. If it were less I'd call and try to get a rebate.
