Hubby and I are staying at the ritz in Maui for our honeymoon. I booked directly on the Marriott website. How do I let them know it’s my honeymoon so they can consider us for upgrades etc?

Call them. Message them through the app once you check in a couple days in advanced. Send them a smoke signal.

I usually message through the app a day or 2 before with something like "As a loyal Marriott member and XX status guest, my husband and I are thrilled to be spending our honeymoon at your resort. Based on my status level, I'm hoping you could put in a request for a room upgrade? This would make our trip even more special."

Call the hotel and ask for the GMs email. Send a very polite note. I’ve had this work wonders when I need something

Thanks, everyone! 2 follow up questions -
1. How can I find the email for the ritz manager? I tried to google it, but the guy who comes up now works at the sfo Marriott ( stalked him on LinkedIn)
2. Is 2 days enough? What I wanted to use my suite nights? Do we have to provide additional notice?

Do you have an ambassador? They could likely get it

Just call the hotel. I’d do it way in advance especially in popular destinations. You can also get champagne, cakes, breakfasts, spa coupons, drink coupons. It’s really only limited by your appetite to ask and pout. We got them to upgrade our flight to business class on lufthansa! Have fun!

Have fun OP and good luck! I feel this property is quite popular for honeymooners so they’re probably inundated with such requests. But fingers crossed for you!

Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant?

My international Delta flight was rescheduled 5 times today - I spent 9 hours at the airport and 2 hours waiting in customer service lines/waiting for agents to respond via chat. I now have to fly out tomorrow. All we got was a $15 food voucher. 🤦Is there anything else I can get from this? i.e. Travel credit (if so how much)? Reimbursements for needing to take an Uber home and back again tomorrow? I’m not savvy negotiating with CX agents…thanks for your advice!

Is anyone able to give me the Marriott Family or/and friends discount paper? 🤗

So my 18yo daughter who just started college texted me that she wants to do solo Europe travel in December and mom (my ex wife approved it). My daughter has traveled extensively in the US and abroad with me. However, she has never traveled even to a neighboring town in the US solo and is just learning what it means to live by herself as a freshman. I'm very concerned for her safety but if I put my foot down, my daughter will detest me.

My dear fishes. This is a brainstorming post.
After reading dozens of your posts, I realize there is a HUGE mental health problem. Also, an opportunity.
Worldwide searches for anxiety are booming. Mental healthcare is not "here you have some yoga videos" and keep working 60,70,80h a week to barely pay your rent and think in your net worth.

How could we redesign consulting services for sustainability, specially regarding employee mental health, and still bring value to our clients?
