Our brands offer significant income potential to publishers because our advertisers see significant return on their exposure to hotels guests looking for their products and services.

Due to me receiving multiple calls per day from your hotels I will no longer be booking any rooms at any Marriott hotels. It’s pitiful that you have to stoop to doing this type of business. I just received a call at 9:04 on a Thursday night. Good riddance

STOP CALLING. I’m not going to use your hotel. I’m registered on DO NOT CALL LIST. I’ve turned you into the feds twice. STOP CALLING AFTER YOU’VE RECEIVED NOTICE NOT TO CALL MULTIPLE TIMES. YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE MODEL INCLUDES HARASSMENT; WHY WOULD ANYONE PATRONIZE YOUR HOTELS?

🤗

Second time with no response .... Very frustrated at the fact I found a receipt from last year that Marriott would not even give me the credit for the night stay (never mind the points). I told them I was good with just the night and even that they wouldn’t credit me. I have almost 500 lifetime stays and 9 years as a platinum member. One would think that would get one some latitude with things like that....apparently not. Very disappointing.

So I just attempted to book a room in your Maryland Heights, Missouri location and it specifically tells me you just had a data breach yet you expect me to give you my credit card info?? Does that seem at all logical?? Then I understand needed some fee for a cancellation but thinking you can charge me full price for a room I didn't use is asinine! I'll be booking when I show up with cash and if you don't have a room I'll go somewhere else! Your booking structure is not at all based on customer service it seems!!

Love that sunset.

Worst customer service possible for their loyal lifetime diamond members.

Love Hilton and our HGVC!

Blue drinks, YUM!!!

Looks great!

Good view good blue drink

Eso es lo que me merezco

Omg just stayed at one of their properties and it was awful! Cant believe how they treat people!!! Someone should reach out to me so i can tell them about it!

Oh i love this hotel but some appliant you didnt accept all

Ray Dietrich

Es tupendo estilo 😎🎩

What drink is that, looks so yummy!?

Shame on Hilton for allowing third party hotel booking sites to book rooms and commit fraud. These companies (Priceline and Reservations.com) will pre-pay and charge your reservations adding hundreds of dollars of additional fraudulent charges. They will also steal your identity. If you have to travel call the hotel directly. Shame on Hilton for selling out long time loyal customers for a dollar.

Curious..why are all the Islamic Muslim events held at your properties ?

DONT TRUST IHG's Best Price Guarantee!!! The promise is completely hollow! I booked the Kimpton Ink 48 in NYC for 10 nights on the IHG website. Within a 24 hour period I found a lower rate on Hotels.com. I was not sure whether IHG would recognize the lower rate. So as a safe guard I booked on Hotels.com also. Please note I have the Hotels.com confirmed booking! After several emails and phone calls IHG still refuses to honor the Best Rate Guarantee. Responses I have heard so far: 1.) "The property has no availability for your travel dates" - Thats interesting I already have the lower booked rate! 2.) "Upon checking the rates on Hotels.com for your travel dates, there was a notification that the Kimpton Ink48 Hotel has no availability on May 21-31, 2019. Hence, your claim will remain ineligible for the program" - Again I have a confirmed booking made within a 24 hour period! 3.) Called the reservation system " The manager on reservations said the best rate guarantee means "The best rate that IHG can provide. It doesn't matter what rate is available through any other website". The fact that I am having to make so many complaints for something so clearly evident is shameful on IHG's part!

I made a reservation on May 3 rd via the IHG APP. I called today to ask if I modified my reservation to 2 double beds instead of a king what would the cost be. I was told $100. I said $100 even? She said yes. That didn’t sound right to me so I asked for a total price. She said I can’t give you a total with out modifying your reservation, I said well I don’t want you to change my reservation until I get a price. Your employee changed my reservation with out my consent, increased my cost and now I’ve spent an hour on the phone with an off shore call center who can’t really help me. Very poor customer service!!!

RIP off stay away!!!!

Would love to see you go cage free with your eggs like many other hotels have! <3 You have the chance to make a massive difference in many lives.

Hi Best Western, I was really shocked to learn that you are still supporting cruel cage eggs! I hope that you will follow Hilton hotels in pledging to go cage-free, I definitely won't be staying with you again until you do.

I used to like staying at your hotels, but won't be doing so again until you follow the lead of Hilton Hotels and commit to stop using cage-eggs. Hens deserve better than being trapped in tiny cages.

Best Western= Worst Cruelty

Hilton JUST committed to going cage-free globally. What's Best Western's excuse?

Please go cage free eggs so we can all stay with you again!

Please go cage-free, animal suffering and pain is totally unnecessarily in this age we live in 🙂

I'm boycotting all Best Western hotels until it stops supporting animal cruelty! www.BestWesternCruelty.com

Best Western. Worst Cruelty. www.BestWesternCruelty.com

Best Western, please stop using caged hens eggs. These animals have a life of suffering. I will never stay at your hotels unless you take responsibility and stop this cruelty against hens!

Hilton just committed to going cage-free globally policy. Please take responsibility and stop this cruelty against hens!

Best Western, please stop using caged hens eggs. These animals have a life of suffering

Best Western continues to support unnecessary animal cruelty. I'll be staying with hotels that take animal welfare seriously, like Marriot, Hilton, Accor, Hyatt, and IHG www.BestWesternCruelty.com

Im not going to stay at your hotels unless you stop support anymal cruelty www.BestWesternCruelty.com

There's nothing family friendly about animal cruelty. PLease take animal welfare seriously, Best Western Hotels & Resorts www.BestWesternCruelty.com #BestWesternCruelty

Hilton JUST released a global cage-free policy, joining the overwhelming movement of hotels who are banning cruel cages. What's Best Western's excuse?

Hilton just committed to going cage-free globally policy. Please take responsibility and stop this cruelty against hens!

I travel a lot, and I won´t stay in a Best Western until you go cage-free. Ignoring animal cruelty is not acceptable.

Stop using Cage eggs! The hens suffer in those farms- be sensitive to then #BestWesternCruelty www.BestWesternCruelty.com

Despite being considered a leader in the industry, #BestWestern fell behind the times with regard to the eggs it chooses to buy. Do the right thing, Best Western, and adopt a 100% global cage-free egg policy www.BestWesternCruelty.com

Best Western, please stop using caged hens eggs. These animals have a life of suffering.

Best Western, please stop using caged hens eggs. These animals have a life of suffering.

Please, stop using caged-eggs. It's cruel and unnecessary.

Still upset that LQ is now charging a pet deposit. I've been staying with them for 23 years - I take my 2 little dogs with me to work - I travel throughout the state of FL. It's ridiculous - I've NEVER had problem with my girls - they don't bark or mess up the room. I just don't get it. I'll be looking for another hotel - if I have to pay a deposit at least it will be in a better hotel! I sent an email a week ago asking why I went from LQ Elite to La Quinta by Wyndhamam Blue-- bottom of the barrel. Not a happy camper. Very disappointed.

Front Desk USA is more than a pretty piece of paper

It means business for your business. With over a 1,000 hotels currently using Front Desk USA maps and tens of thousands being viewed by hotel guests each day, Front Desk USA is the, “go-to” visitor information guide for hotels. The maps are designed to assist hotel guests with questions they may have about the area around the hotel. Our maps are custom drawn to be specific to a geographic area. This means an advertiser can reach a specific number of hotel guests in their area. Front Desk USA maps focus on categories that are most important to hotel guests such as where to EAT, where to SHOP and where to PLAY. Publishers monitor hotels to ensure adequate inventory at all times. Hotels can order additional maps anytime at no charge. Now we have added custom  welcome website pages creating even more opportunity for exposure from additional marketing and promotions using social media. Just search Facebook for Front Desk USA.

About Front Desk USA:
Hotels have at their fingertips all of the information they might need to guide their guests. Our maps can answer almost any question a guest might ask the hotel staff about the area around them. Many of our maps cover large metropolitan areas, and our maps assist guests with making their way to airports, etc. The maps pinpoint selected area restaurants (EAT) that are family-friendly fun and which have the best tasting food in the area of course. The maps also include shopping areas (SHOP) and pinpoint pharmacies and hospitals, etc. Area attractions (PLAY) are also are pinpointed, like museums, golf courses and parks and amusement venues.
