Hotel grid from the website:
Merely getting 2% back in points for the F&B wouldn’t sway me to eat at a hotel property. If I had chosen to eat there anyway and they are giving me some points for it, why not?
Don’t get it why don’t they give the same number of points as you would normally get + elite bonuses? Wouldn’t that have been easier to program?
