At the time of writing, there are just 11 EDITION properties around the world but Marriott has been promising us plenty more, and true to its word, it has now opened the doors to its newest EDITION property Reykjavik, Iceland.
American Express has launched a new offer for Marriott Homes & Villas stays. The offer covers stays made through 15 December 2021 and because the spending needed to trigger the rebate doesn't have to be done in a single transaction and because the offer is not limited to properties in the US, this rebate may be easier to earn than first looks suggest.
Marriott has announced that it has plans to nearly double the number of St. Regis Resorts in its portfolio by 2025. The hotelier has confirmed that it will add a total of eleven new resorts to its existing fifteen St Regis Resorts in the course of the next four years as it looks to expand its high-end offering.
Marriott has brought back its Week of Wonders promotion that we first saw last year and once again the 7-day set of promotions are a combination of new deals and existing promotions dressed up to appear like they're something new. The promotions include discounted awards nights, discounts on Homes & Villas stays, discounts on all-inclusive booking, discounts on Marriott's boutique (amenity) ranges, and a number of other deals that offer savings, bonus points, or discounts.
In February of this year, Marriott confirmed plans to add a number of Blue Diamond all-inclusive resorts to its Autograph Collection brand but, at the time, didn't actually say when the properties would be available to book on Marriott.com. Well, as of right now, 19 new all-inclusive properties are bookable with Bonvoy Points and/or cash.
Chase appears to be targeting select cardholders for a Marriott Bonvoy offer which gives a user up to $55 off their next stay. The offer is valid for bookings that are paid for through 6 November and can be used at any domestic (US) Marriott Bonvoy brand.
Over the past few months, Marriott has been pretty aggressive when it comes to advertising its "Homes & Villas by Marriott" program, and the hotelier is now attempting to make its luxury self-catering option a little more tempting to Marriott loyalists by offering bonus points on Homes & Villas spending when a stay is paid for using a Bonvoy co-branded credit card.
Marriott has brought back its "Escape to Luxury" promotion in which it offers guests up to $300 in credits on stays of 2-nights or more at some of its more luxurious properties in the Americas and the Caribbean. The catch is that bookings must be made by this coming Sunday.
Hyatt got some very good press when, at the end of last month, it announced that all 19 of its resorts in Latin America and the Caribbean would offer free coronavirus testing for guests returning to the United States. Now Marriott appears to be joining in...albeit a little less wholeheartedly.
Amidst a variety of announcements that we've recently see Marriott making, one small bit of news appears to have slipped under the radar. Within the next few months, Marriott Bonvoy members will have a new Hawaiian property at which to burn their hard-earned points.
