I currently have spent 483 nights of my life in a Starwood hotel of some sort. I am just 17 nights short of achieving Lifetime Platinum status with Starwood. But I am strongly considering changing alliances over an item so small and so simple as a piece of paper. For years, (for about 470 of those 483 nights) I've woken up in the morning and noticed there is a small piece of paper slid under the door. I've grown very used to having the receipt for my stay right there on paper in front of the door so I can grab it on the way out. No need to stop at the desk, no way I can forget it, it's just there like magic. Now Starwood has decided to stop printing receipts for guest stays and sliding them under the door. They will email it to you instead. Now I have to stop by the front desk and stand in line and 'check out' to get a printed receipt. I've complained/inquired about this at a few different properties, and I'm told this is part of a "Green Initiative", and that this will help save the planet. Every little bit helps and all that... But you see Starwood, that really isn't how this works. In the end, I have to print the receipt myself anyway to turn in my expenses. So you're not saving the planet, you're just kicking the can over to me, your customer. I don't want to get an email receipt. I have my little expense system that works really well if I get a piece of paper. (I tend to forget emailed receipts when I finally get around to doing my dreaded expense reports.) I don't want to stand in line in the morning to check out. I want to grab my receipt off the floor, grab a quick bite of breakfast at the club lounge, and hit the door running. Just like I did 470 times before. Can we please go back to the way it used to be? Or at least have that option?
