Marriott Rewards has changed the Terms and conditions governing the rewards program effective February 25, 2015, although the last change date shown on the page is August 14.
These changes merely deal with the elite guarantees at the Protea hotels that are slowly being integrated into the Marriott Rewards.
You can access Marriott Rewards Terms and conditions here.
Platinum Arrival Gift
Platinum members can choose between 250 bonus points or F&B amenity.
Protea hotels are now included here as well.
Room Type Guarantee
If you don’t get your booked room type, you will receive $50 in cash.
Platinum Arrival Gift Compensation
You get $50 in cash if the hotel forgets to deliver the F&B amenity OR ask your amenity preference.
Seems that Marriott has classified these Protea hotels at the same level with Courtyards and other limited service hotels. I thought that they would be more inline with full service properties.
