As a 'newbie' Insider , I am profoundly grateful for the wealth of information available on this site.  Two weeks ago I took advantage of the Business Meeting benefit.  Although I have yet to receive my elite night credits and points, I'm hopeful they will appear soon.  In the meantime, I'm wondering if we could start posting the names of the properties and/or names of the meeting planners/event management team who have gone out of their way to welcome our business (as well as those properties we should avoid)? I have valid needs (versus just needing elite night credits) for meeting space in various cities for EOY planning purposes.  I submitted one RFP for the conference room at the Atlanta Airport Marriott property, was contacted immediately, and completed my meeting in a timely manner with superior service from their team.  In contrast, I made several direct contacts to the Springhill Suites in Southfield MI (after waiting 2 weeks for them to respond to my RFP).  The GM/Sales Director (the same person at this property) never returned my call or acknowledged the letter that I faxed to him.  When I arrived in Southfield, I went by the property only to find out that the conference room is under construction!  The images on their website of their conference room were fake!!  Of course the GM/Sales Director wasn't there. It would certainly help me in the future to know ahead of time which Marriott properties welcome the opportunity to work with us, and which ones we shouldn't waste time on.  Anyone else agree?
