14k SPG is huge

If you feel the need for more, just ask. The worst that happens is they say no. What would you consider adequate? And why didn’t you ask for more while talking to registration desk staff?

SA1, Marriott has a specific policy for elites. At full-rate (JW, Marriott, etc) the compensation for a walk is $200 and 90k points for silvers or gold and above. I think it is just $100 for the cheaper properties (Springhill Suites, Courtyard, etc)

Depends on the property. For SPG the policy for walking a Platinum is 1 night’s worth of points plus transportation.

14k is huge. A couple months back I checked into the Le Meridien Philly and my room wasn’t cleaned!! It was the last room available and 11pm so I just had to sit there and wait for it to be cleaned. They only gave me 1K SPG. Cheap folks!

Marriott gave me $200 cash and 90k points two weeks ago
