Another slaughter was just announced .... very disheartening indeed! Marriott Rewards published its 2015 category changes for redemption made on or after March 20, 2015, with a whopping 36% of Marriott's properties changing categories. But the shocking part is that 75% of those hotels are moving up in category, while only 25% of hotels are moving down. This seems to be an annual event with Marriott Rewards as @gleff observed here: http://viewfromthewing.boardingarea...ers-again-with-big-increase-in-reward-prices/ The need for this annual devaluation makes Marriott Rewards a poor choice for loyalty, and this is coming from a very big Marriott fan. The attached list provided by Marriott is is equally chaotic with the Cologne property placed between Akron and Zhengzhou ones, as one FTer noted. You can still book the current redemption rates until the March 20th date.
