Can you believe that practically everyone in the travel world is still talking about how awful Bonvoy is? I mean, it’s been over a year since Marriott International acquired Starwood (in 2016) and started this new, inept-ridden loyalty program. It’s just that bad, and there doesn’t seem to be any relief (or Marriott Bonvoy employees coming to their senses) in sight.
