It has less to do with luck than it has to do with how many stays you make at starwood properties  ::)

Or if you own a SPG property.

just had a stay where I stepped on an open safety pin causing my toe to bleed and other housekeeping issues. Would you all reccomend an email/letter to management or a corporate address?
How do you find a manager's email?

I dont know exactly what your problem was, but please leave it and be happy with what you got. I know the staff and managers there very well, they are having it too much from us guys. Lets be happy they are still around.
