万豪放弃 “No Blackout Dates” 政策!

W South Beach

之前我们在《万豪新计划详解——点数积累和使用》花大篇幅讲解了积分房兑换的 No Blackout Dates 政策,这个政策主要是讲只要基础房还在售,会员就可以使用点数兑换基础房。

然而昨天我们发现,万豪悄悄修改了这个政策,差不多之前我就是白写了…新政策给我的感觉就是放弃了 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

作为对比,以下是旧条款:

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

新条款中,原万豪品牌集体退出 No Blackout Dates 政策,以后他们将可以根据自己需求决定是否放基础房,可以预见的是旺季积分房将很难兑换,积分高价值兑换机会或许会减少很多!原本万豪合并之后使用了原SPG的人当 loyalty program 头头,而且也可能是为了讨好会员,很多政策之前都采用了原来 SPG 的政策。目前看来万豪可能受到了很多酒店的抗议,于是选择让步。

目前看来 legacy SPG 酒店依旧承认 No Blackout Dates 政策,但都是一个集团了,以后纷纷抛弃此政策也是很有可能的。

对此我都不想点评了…大家努力赚钱住四季、文化、安缦吧!
