READER QUESTION: Hilton Papagayo Resort & Spa No Longer Hilton – What To Do!

9 Comments

Couple of LoyaltyLobby readers emailed me this week regarding their stays at the now former Hilton Papagayo Resort & Spa in Costa Rica.

Hilton Papagayo No Longer Hilton U

As all the hotel chains have adopted asset light strategy, they have very little saying when property feels that they are not getting their franchise fees worth and decides to reflag or go independent. Unfortunately, the loyalty program members are often losers in situation such as this.

16 Comments
