Marriott Rewards has updated the Elite Members terms and conditions effective April 29, 2015.
These changes deal with the number of people each Gold * Platinum member can bring in and the type of lounge offerings.
You can access the Marriott Rewards program terms and conditions here.
Here are the changes:
Marriott now defines the lounge offering as “light snacks”. Also, Gold and Platinum members can now bring ONE guest to the lounge per the T&C’s.
The terms and conditions now also define that you can not choose between breakfast and 750 points IF the rate that you booked is breakfast inclusive.
The clarification that Gold and Platinum members can guest in only one person probably hit families hard. It is up to hotels, however, how this is enforced (or not). I don’t like the fact that the evening service is now defined as “light snacks”.
