Marriott got into hot water with the Chinese authorities back in January when it listed Tibet as it own country (read more here) in some after stay surveys and when “social media manager” had liked a tweet sent by Friends of Tibet group.
Chinese authorities took auction against Marriott and demanded apology and forced the hotel company to close its Chinese direct booking channels for a week. In the process, Marriott listed Taiwan as part of China briefly as well. Now, WSJ has dug deeper to find out what happened to the Marriott employee in Omaha that had liked the tweet above.

Last week, I wrote (read more here) about Look No Further Best Rate Guarantee program update where Marriott had adopted much liked feature from SPG as members could choose between a discount of 25% of the entire stay or 5,000 bonus points (previously the discount was the only option).
I made a claim at the time for a stay at the Marriott hotel close to the Guarulhos airport in Sao Paulo and promised to do an update once the LNF bonus points had posted.
