Marriott 萬豪放棄 “No Blackout Dates” 政策!

W South Beach

之前我們在《萬豪新計劃詳解——點數積累和使用》花大篇幅講解了積分房兌換的 No Blackout Dates 政策,這個政策主要是講只要基礎房還在售,會員就可以使用點數兌換基礎房。

然而昨天我們發現,萬豪悄悄修改了這個政策,差不多之前我就是白寫了…新政策給我的感覺就是放棄了 No Blackout Dates Policy:

3.2.n. The Company has a “No Blackout Dates” policy, which means that, subject to the limitations and exclusions below, Participating Properties have standard rooms available every day for Award Redemptions. These limitations and exclusions are:

i. Participating Properties from the following Brands may cap the number of standard rooms available for redemption on a limited number of days: The Ritz-Carlton®, EDITION®, JW Marriott®, Marriott Hotels®, Delta Hotels®, Autograph Collection® Hotels , Renaissance® Hotels, Gaylord Hotels®, Courtyard®, SpringHill Suites®, Protea Hotels®, Fairfield by Marriott®, AC Hotels®, Moxy® Hotels, Residence Inn®, TownePlace Suites®.

ii. The following Participating Brands allow only for Points/Miles earnings and do not offer Points redemption: Marriott Executive Apartments® and ExecuStay®.

iii. The following Participating Properties or Brands either do not participate in or do not fully participate in the No Blackout Dates benefit at this time:

Boscolo Exedra Nice, Autograph Collection
The Dedica Anthology, Autograph Collection
JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn® Resort & Spa, Scottsdale, AZ
● Marriott Vacation Club and Marriott Grand Residence Club – all properties
● Participating Vistana properties
Rome Marriott Grand Hotel Flora, Rome, Italy
Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, Hawaii
Wailea Beach Resort – Marriott – Maui, Hawaii

作為對比,以下是舊條款:

3.2.n. Blackout dates refer to a limited number of dates when a Participating Property could choose not to permit Members to redeem Points for Awards, but the Company has a “No Blackout Dates” benefit so that if there is a standard room available for booking by any means, whether by cash, credit or Points, then a Member can reserve the room using Points. The following properties either do not participate in or do not fully participate in the No Blackout Dates benefit at this time:

● Boscolo Exedra Nice, Autograph Collection
● The Dedica Anthology, Autograph Collection
● JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn® Resort & Spa, Scottsdale, AZ
● Marriott Vacation Club and Marriott Grand Residence Club – all properties
● Participating Vistana properties
● Rome Marriott Grand Hotel Flora, Rome, Italy
● Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, Hawaii
● Wailea Beach Resort – Marriott – Maui, Hawaii

新條款中,原萬豪品牌集體退出 No Blackout Dates 政策,以後他們將可以根據自己需求決定是否放基礎房,可以預見的是旺季積分房將很難兌換,積分高價值兌換機會或許會減少很多!原本萬豪合併之後使用了原SPG的人當 loyalty program 頭頭,而且也可能是為了討好會員,很多政策之前都採用了原來 SPG 的政策。目前看來萬豪可能受到了很多酒店的抗議,於是選擇讓步。

目前看來 legacy SPG 酒店依舊承認 No Blackout Dates 政策,但都是一個集團了,以後紛紛拋棄此政策也是很有可能的。

對此我都不想點評了…大家努力賺錢住四季、文化、安縵吧!
