Postby craigm1 » Sun Feb 09, 2014 6:48 am

I have a Chase Marriott Rewards card and am going to stay at a Hyatt in a few weeks, is it rude to use the card at the Hyatt???

I doubt the clerk really cares how you pay just so that you pay. They've seen about every card on the planet and don't really even give them a second glance.

If they have a problem with it, the competition would probably welcome your money.

I don't see rude as being relevant to the topic. They'll swipe whatever card you hand them.

I once had a desk clerk say something when I was paying, I always go through travel sites like Travelocity, expedia, etc..this time was orbitz so he goes, "I see you paid through orbitz"

yup, paid in full in advance, so..? Hilton of all places

reminds me, never use your debit card to put on file unless you have loads in checking, somehow I always got stuck with those who only had a few hundred and uses their debit card at hotel check in -_____________-

ps, Hyatt also has a cc through chase but Marriott one looks better

pss, wouldn't worry too much about it, you are a guest

Honestly I don't think it matters. I used to have the Hilton card and stayed at the Radisson pretty frequently.
