You guys should quit hating on the op it is written in the Marriott Rewards terms and conditions clear as day that hotels are supposed to provide the Platinum amenity and if they do not cash compensation is due. Pull it up online and read it for yourselves.

Officially had the worst date of my life. Dude kept saying he’s expecting me to pay for the entire tab (which is nbd really) before we reached the restaurant for dinner and drinks. It was all fun and merry until the check came and the waiter gave the check to him instead of me. Date gets offended and calls waiter a sexist bc “why should men pay all the time?” And angrily gives his credit card 💳. I insist and put my credit card as well and we split the tab. 😂🤣 this was our first and last date. ☺️
