They didn't spend all that money to have all the loyalty vanish. Their moves so far, signal that they are very careful not to lose this loyalty.
Mergers exist to make more money. I don't doubt that we'll get squeezed. Question is how bad.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

They dont have much competition. Their biggest rival is hilton and they treat their elites like garbage.

Hyatt treats their elites very well, but they have such a small footprint that they dont really matter that much.

True and true. But they could make more money just from having a larger footprint, if they could get their loyal customers to stay with them.

Marriott really does not need a larger footprint. As you can see hotels are starting to leave SPG and Marriott due to too much congestion. In Manhattan alone, Le Parker meridian, W lexington and the Ritz battery park are all out or going out soon.

Not sure if its working. I know it definitely isn't for some. Regardless, it will only be 25k not 30k

Is it worth taking a chance for 2.5k? (Being that you can get the 30k offer)

Nope. Because you may be risking more.
