Keeping both Marriott and SPG apps on your phone?
Here’s a question I assume other people have (or are going to have)… With the Marriott and SPG merger now (mostly) complete, do I need to keep both the Marriott app and SPG app on my phone?
As a frequent traveller, I enjoy the functionality of the major hotel chain apps, e.g., having reservations details at my fingertips, mobile check in, etc.
The Marriott and SPG webpages now have a similar functionality and feel. On iOS, the apps now have the same look, function, and feel. With my accounts combined, I feel like I don’t need both app any more. Is there any advantage to keeping one over the other? Would the “default” account I chose during combining them have any impact?
I don’t think it’s necessary to have both, and am pretty sure they are the same app on the backend at this point.
