I was surprised that you guys were surprised by Marriott winning so many awards vice Hyatt. I wonder if all of you have travel patterns that are very similar so you can't understand why everyone doesn't think Hyatt is the best. You seem to pooh-pooh that the voters don't know what they are talking about, but perhaps you guys need to reexamine the hotel programs. I know you have broadcast twice on Marriott, but both times it has come up lacking because you haven't invited a Marriott expert to talk. A lot of people obviously value Marriott more (like myself) and there is more to life than suite upgrades. Maybe you should try an analysis again with some other voices in the mix.
