    With their recent enhancements, it will be Platinum discounts only applied to passing Eskimos being towed on sleds by a herd of elephants.

    On the email it says "more choices, more rewards ...". At a guess it might mean you will be able to redeem the points on rewards other than hotel stays. Maybe you'll be able to spend points on flights. Or maybe some other hotel chain in joining up.

    Gut feeling is they will drop the X sc / night scheme and move to a points / $ spent scheme...

    I like the program the way that it is. If they cut the platinum benefits, I'll probably stop staying with them.

    The hotels aren't that great, but I don't mind if it means a family weekend at the QT on the Gold Coast.... The QT's restaurants (and the 50% discount) make staying at the Eagle Hawk in Canberra worth the effort!

    Well, apparently Rydges have changed their cancellation policy. Apparently since Monday the 26th all of the Rydges hotels require a 24 hour notice to cancel.

    I can understand the reason, but it is one less reason to go out of my way to stay with Rydges.

    What's this and Why?

    Re: Rydges PriorityGuest Revamp?

    Interesting - with most 'flexible' hotel bookings I make, the cancel policy varies with the rate type, property and perhaps even the phase of the moon.

    It can be 6pm/4pm on day of arrival; 1, 2 or 3 days and even a week.

    I always check this prior to booking.

    Perhaps Rydges are being advised by the same mob who have been revamping the Rex FF program-since 2010!!!

    I don't understand why they made an announcement that they were going to make an announcement. Why not just make the announcement when they are ready.
