By merging with Starwood and unfairly matching status (since Marriott rewards members get inferior status with Starwood) Marriott is acknowledging they are an inferior rewards program not loyal to their members. Very disappointed with Marriott rewards. This policy makes me regret having being gone loyal to Marriott for so many years.
