In June/July I'm flying to Goa and will stay there for around one month. I've decided to stay at Marriott as for some reason I like this chain.
Anyway, I thought that staying for such a long period I'll get *better* price/per night than advertised on the web.
Also, for the first two weeks I'll be there alone so in theory it should lower the price a bit- NO. (official response from Marriott via email and telephone)
As all my attempts to get better deal has failed I thought that it will be nice of them to do free upgrade- I mean better room OR at least access to the lounge.. Nothing like that- sorry. It looks like for them it doesn't matter if some1 is staying for 1 night or for 30 which is quite silly IMHO.
Total for stay (per room) is $4262.50 and I'm sure that they can't afford to just fob me off.
So- ANY ideas what I should do? Push them harder? Escalate to management level and try harder to get better deal/free upgrade?
Just to tell you: I'm quite happy with the price but I *HATE* paying asked price.
As a small revenge I can book all 33 nights separately to make small mess in their systems :)
Question number 2 is more complicated:
Should I stay with Marriott points or should I convert them to Tesco points and then convert them for Marriott vouchers? We are planning to spend few nights up in Scotland by the end of the year so free nights are more then welcome...
Any other advice? What else I can do to get *most* out of this deal?
Many thanks in advance!!
