Staying in a major city at a Hyatt. Since Sunday check in to now, they’ve had issues with their hot water and the shower just barely gets warm enough to shower. Does not get hot and steam. Have to get in and out quick since it’s not comfortable. Switching rooms doesn’t help. It’s a whole building issue. I’m Titanium Marriott but nothing with hyatt. How many points can I request as compensation? Stay is about $200/night total Sunday- Thursday so I think $800-900 total

I’ve heard that Ritz Carlton has corporate discount codes that can some times bring the price down by 50% or more.

Can anyone verify this and if so where can I find the codes or could you share them?

It would be very helpful to host meetings in the same place I’m staying (hopefully)

Thanks!!!

If you’re just short of leveling up with Bonvoy, you can get 15 nights credit with the Marriott Bonvoy Bold Visa credit card. I just got mine, and right when I activated it my 15 nights posted to my account. Just in time for me to level up before the end of the year. Each year will post another 15 nights, and there is no annual fee.

Going on a trip with friends. I am covering 2 of 3 hotel nights with points. One of my friends (who is obsessed with points) immediately booked the 3rd night (knowing I have a Bonvoy cc) acting like they were doing me a favor bc I’d ‘planned so much already’. Am I being unreasonable to be f-ing pissed?

Edit: we had agreed to split the paid night between the 4 of us on the trip. No one offered to cover my share for that 3rd night. It’s less about the points than the selfishness
