  1. What an entertaining post
    Not fully disclosed
    Candidate must be completely willing to continue to devalue and destroy and remaing attributes of HH program not already devastated by current management
    This will include making sure standard rooms will be redeemed
    for 200,000 points per night Or more by 2015
    stay credit will allow for 1 ff mile earned instead of the past
    500 per stay
    Applicant will remain emotionless and have no concerns
    at any time regarding what HH members think of us or their ultimate
    Satisfaction as we continue to enhance our program in our best interest
    Candidate must be certain they can slam the door on customer loyalty at all times as we can replace customers whenever needed by increasing marketing costs at Blackstones and our hotel owners expense

    I was hoping they fired the person who came up with the devaluation and this will be the replacement 🙂
