No one knows the ins and outs of travel better than the globe trotting frequent travelers who belong to Marriott Rewards. Now those members can exchange candid travel advice through a new online travel community � Marriott Rewards Insiders � and share their personal tips on everything from the best beach resorts to where to find the best sushi, to favorite wireless hot-spots for business travelers.

Marriott Rewards Insiders is a lightly moderated online community, and is built specifically for members to share their travel stories, ask questions from other members and give advice and recommendations. Powered by leading social media marketing agency LiveWorld, the site is open to the program�s 30 million members.

�Our members told us they wanted a place where they could talk to each other without interference from sponsors trying to sell them something,� said Ed French, senior vice president, Marriott Rewards. �We designed an innovative digital lobby to give them a place to share their stories and get authentic, honest information from other frequent travelers just like them.�

i'm doing some work with Marriott on this, so i thought i'd share. any of you frequent Marriott customers that can take advantage?
