My family has Platinum status at Marriott but I've seen the light and am now working towards the same with Starwood. Marriott may have more properties but Starwood properties are typically more luxe. I wanted to do something nice for my folks and entice them to switch so I booked them a night at the beautiful St. Regis.
Hanna Ayana at the front desk was awesome. I had a ton of questions and requests and she handled everything with aplomb. I found out afterwards she was the only one at the desk at the time, I was surprised because she never made me feel rushed. I had to run a few things by the manager Ertug Ersoy and he was so kind and easy to work with... he even personally escorted my parents to their suite. They called me afterwards to tell me they were surprised at how big and well appointed the room was. Ertug had even given them a corner!
Thank you very much Ertug and Hanna! Maybe I'll convert them to Starwood after all. ;)More
