Wow all of a sudden simple Marriott properties that was 15K last week is showing now as 17.5K per night, bottom line we all lost big time on this merger.

I didn't think into this chart so much was just looking at the list of properties going up, how do we know when is peak or off peak at each property?

Tried matching to United Silver now that it says Platinum Elite, but site is down for maintenance...
+1 took a screenshot, but its more than a long shot.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Because they said that SPG gold originating from Amex plat would not convert to Marriott plat. Don't expect the plat status to last past the weekend.

Did you try merging your accounts? Wonder what would happen afterwards

And now I'm seeing reports that only Platinum premier will match to United Silver... I took a screenshot of the current FAQs showing that Marriott Platinum will match to Silver.

Can you share the screenshot?

It says Iím platinum now even though I got gold through Amex. Iím afraid to merge accounts since I have an upcoming stay later this week that I want the platinum benefits. Hoping itíll stick around long enough.

Though I am curious what will happen if the accounts are merged.

I made the mistake of cancelling a pre-merger booking (in order to rebook it at the lower award rate post merger) -- the points from my cancellation are now in limbo.  The cancellation or the points from it are no where to be found.  I called Marriott and they say it could take 24 hours to update with the new balance.  It's been about 18 hours.  Still waiting......
