The agent at check-in (at the Westin Palo Alto) explained the new March 1st
benefits to me and helped me choose what option I wanted. I chose free internet and logged in to post on Milepoint.com
that I was still being offered benefits. Lo and behold, Starwood beat me to it
“We are a little behind from doing some extra IT chores related to all the new benefits, but we’ll get to these eventually, so enjoy whatever extra time you have at your old status level until the switch is flipped.” – SPG Champion
So, if you are like me and lost your status this year, enjoy it while it last!
