I haven't looked very closely at the Marriott categories, but I know it's always something to be considered. They'd be better off making it unrestricted and paying for half the night in my opinion. But potentially only with certain spenders I guess. The majority might be well suited by the current setup.
Yeah, you won't get a hotel in San Francisco with it...you'd have to go to Oakland or Richmond.
I've lamented before about there not being a middle-tier Marriott card - one for people who stay in high-category hotels, but don't need upgrades, or the perks of a full-service hotel.
Of course, that's where the IHG and Wyndham cards shine...
I see the value. I just don't think I'm going to stay in those places when I'm on a vacation vs when I'm working.
