Marriott International Three Loyalty Programmes Become One
Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest have now been merged into one programme. Members of the three programmes now enjoy unified benefits and one currency spanning the entire loyalty portfolio of 29 brands and over 6,700 participating hotels in 130 countries and territories. However the Marriott Rewards, Ritz-Carlton Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest names will continue to live on until early 2019 where they will combine under a new brand name.
The unified programme allows members to earn on average 20 percent more points per dollar spent and have their Elite status recognised at every hotel. A new F&B benefit has been introduced to give members up to 20% food and beverage savings and allow them to earn up to 10 points for every US$1 spent with a minimum of US$10 spend at participating Marriott International properties in Asia Pacific.
SPG Members points will be multiplied by three when combined. All members earn 10 points for every dollar spent at all brands except Residence Inn, TownePlace Suites and Element which earn five points per dollar spent and Marriott Executive Apartments and ExecuStay properties which earn 2.5 points per dollar spent.
Nights earned at Marriott Rewards and SPG hotels in 2018 will also combine, helping members to achieve Elite status faster. Earn Silver Elite status after 10 nights every year, Gold Elite status after 25 nights, Platinum Elite after 50 nights and Platinum Premier Elite status after 75 nights. All Platinum Premier members surpassing 10 nights and US$20,000 annual spend will enjoy the highest level of personalised service – the popular ambassador programme and other benefits in that tier.
A new Free Night Award chart for redemptions across the entire loyalty portfolio offers the same or fewer points for a free stay at nearly 70 per cent of hotels. Further, members can save 25,000 points per night by redeeming for future category eight hotels priced in category seven until 2019, including coveted all-suites properties. The new Free Night Award chart launched with standard pricing, adding off-peak and peak pricing in 2019.
A collection of close to 120,000 experiences in 1,000 global destinations is offered on the Moments platforms which include Marriott Moments, Marriott Rewards Moments and SPG Moments.
Other new benefits to highlight include:
- All members now earn points for food and beverage, spa and other qualifying incidentals charged to their folio, rather than just the room rate.
- Hotels throughout the loyalty portfolio now have no blackout dates for points redemptions.
- Booking direct on any of Marriott’s digital and mobile channels means members can take advantage of exclusive member-only rates and free Wi-Fi. In addition, both the Marriott and SPG apps offer mobile check-in and check-out and send members alerts when their room is ready. Members can also chat directly with hotel associates before, during, and after their stays using Mobile Requests, and use their smartphones as their room key at more than 1,000 hotels.
