The Le Parker Méridien New York and the Le Parker Méridien Palm Springs, are two properties that will be leaving the Starwood/Marriott portfolio on January 4, 2018. Both are current SPG category 6 properties, however for those staying after they leave, SPG benefits and night/stay accrual won’t be eligible.
It’s unclear why these two properties are leaving, however a while back there was a lawsuit between Starwood and these hotels, where they were fraudulently reporting higher occupancy rates in order to receive higher redemption rates from Starwood, for members who were staying using Starpoints.
As these are managed properties, hotels must be kept up to the current brand standards, so I wouldn’t be surprised if in order to stay a full room renovation would have been required for these hotels, which the hotels didn’t want to do at this time, so that’s another reason why they may be leaving.
- Le Parker Méridien New York will be leaving Marriott on January 4, 2018. Reservations for dates on or after January 4, 2018, will not be eligible for Starwood Preferred Guest membership benefits, award redemption or accrual.
- Le Parker Méridien Palm Springs will be leaving Marriott on January 4, 2018. Reservations for dates on or after January 4, 2018, will not be eligible for Starwood Preferred Guest membership benefits, award redemption or accrual.
Feel free to share your thoughts on the departure of these two hotels from the Le Meridien collection.
