Marriott Rewards

下面 说说Marroitt吧. 这个也是最大的酒店连锁之一了,全世界也有2000多家店,下面的品牌太多了包括,让我评介的话,elite benefits and treatments没有SPG的好,而且不好拿到. 奖励点数没有Priority Club 多, top hotel can not compete with Hilton, SPG and Hyatt.

它们的酒店集团包括如下知名酒店:Marriott Hotels & ResortsRenaissance Hotels & ResortsMarriott Conference CentersCourtyard by MarriottFairfield Inn by MarriottSpringHill Suites by MarriottMarriott Vacation Club InternationalResidence Inn by MarriottTownePlace Suites by MarriottHorizons by Marriott Vacation Club InternationalMarriott Executive ApartmentsMarriott ExecuStayNew Otani Hotels

每花1块钱在以下的酒店你会得10点,但只是房钱,其它都不算点SpringHill Suites by MarriottResidence Inn by MarriottTownePlace Suites by Marriott Courtyard by Marriott

每花1块钱在以下的酒店你会得10点,什么都可以算点Marriott Hotels & ResortsRenaissance Hotels & ResortsMarriott Conference CentersMarriott Vacation Club International

每花1块钱在以下的酒店你会得5点,带*号的是只算房钱Residence Inn by MarriottTownePlace Suites by MarriottHorizons by Marriott Vacation Club International

我个人不太喜欢他的一个原因,就是它的精英会员资格只能通过每晚入住(night)拿到,而不是 stay, 10晚银卡(sliver), 50晚 金卡(gold),75晚 白金卡(platinum). 太难拿了,一定要那种经常都在酒店住的人才能拿到. If its Elite program is really good and worth the 75 nights with them, I would do it, but its Elite program is the worst. I will talk about it in another post with more detail.

说怎么用他们的点吧, 最好的一点就是他可以用来换airlines miles on 1:1 basis up 120K, but you also need a 7 nights stay at one hotel together to redeem that offer, which is called “Travel package” Here is the detail. However, those 7 nights can not be Ritz-Carlton Hotels

In addition, you can redeem your Marriott points at Ritz-Carlton酒店, 但是住在那里不能拿点.虽然marriott好想已经买了他们大部分的股份, 但只能换,不然攒. Here is the detail on how to redeem at all partner hotels including Ritz-Calton.

Marriott also offer discount award redemption table for selected hotels, check here for award level. Ritz-Carlton is also included on the discounted level.

Every quarter, Marriott will offer additional bonus points for all accounts, login your account because everyone may got different.

Finally, Marriott has three affiliate credit cards, this one, Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Signature® Card is the best. You have get 20K points after ur first purchase, then 5K when u renew the card. In addition, you will get a electronic certificate good for cat 1-4 at first year and a certificate good for cat 1-5 every year after. You will also get 15 nights towards ur elite status every year, 5 points at Marriott hotel spending and 3 poitns elsewhere. Although you have to pay $85 annual fees, the cat 1-4/5 certificate gave ur $85 back already.
