Best Marriott hotel for a weekend trip with partner in Boston? Thinking Liberty or Envoy
Didn’t make Marriott platinum last year but still a platinum this year...? I didn’t even make gold either because I left consulting. Is this an error?
I’m sooo sick of Marriott from the Bonvoy situation. Anybody have luck transferring to Hilton or Hyatt, getting status match?

CSR now gives 10x for booking through the portal for hotels, but I’ve heard we won’t get Bonvoy points if we book through portal because it’s booked through 3rd party? Is that true? What about nights towards status?

How do you track your time spent reading and responding to emails? I don’t want to run a timer each time I open outlook, but I feel like I’m losing hours of billable time every day to one-off emails that I would never individually bill for.
