Marriott Bonvoy Further Devalues Suite Night Awards

Marriott Bonvoy Suite Night Awards let you upgrade your stay at select Marriott properties. They are one of the choices Marriott Bonvoy members can select when achieving 50 Qualifying Nights annually (5 SNAs) and again when achieving 75 Qualifying Nights annually (another 5 SNAs).

A Suite Night Award is a one-night confirmable upgrade to a standard suite or select premium room, depending on the hotel’s availability of those rooms. This was adopted from the Starwood Preferred Guest program when Marriott took over, but it has never really been the same since then.

Now there’s yet another devaluation of Suite Night Awards with the exclusion of All-Inclusive Resorts. Marriott has changed the terms as shown below.

Previous Terms:

Not all Participating Properties participate in Suite Night Awards. Suite Night Awards are not redeemable at the following brands: The Ritz-Carlton, The Ritz-Carlton Reserve, The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, EDITION, Protea Hotels, Aloft, Element, Design HotelsTM, all-Suite Hotels, Marriott Executive Apartments, Marriott Vacation Club, Marriott Grand Residence Club properties and Vistana properties. In addition, Suite Night Awards are not redeemable at select Participating Properties. Contact a Customer Engagement Center for individual Participating Property Suite Night Award participation.

New Terms:

Not all Participating Properties participate in Suite Night Awards. Suite Night Awards are not redeemable at the following brands: The Ritz-Carlton, The Ritz-Carlton Reserve, The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, EDITION, Protea Hotels, Aloft, Element, Design Hotels™, all-Suite Hotels, Marriott Executive Apartments, Marriott Vacation Club, Marriott Grand Residence Club properties, Vistana properties, and All-Inclusive Resorts. In addition, Suite Night Awards are not redeemable at select Participating Properties. Contact a Customer Engagement Center for individual Participating Property Suite Night Award participation.

Conclusion

Marriott Bonvoy Suite Night Awards already has a long list of exclusions. It is getting more and more difficult to actually find some use for them. Even properties that are not listed in the exclusions will often not accept them. If you need to check on a specific property, you will need to contact a Customer Engagement agent and check individual Participating Property Suite Night Award participation.

  1. It’s so sad how far Marriott has fallen. Bonvoy is a joke. They have even let their property quality slip. Currently at the W Ft Lauderdale and this place is in disrepair. I miss SPG.

  2. Aren’t most of these useless for SNAs since all the rooms are the same? Like and all-suite property/ Aloft? Element? The exception would be Ritz which I have never done because of locations and lack of properties? I don’t think this is a major change.

  3. Marriott also recently killed off the leisure rate for federal employees per Reddit and Flyertalk threads. Just when you think they can’t do anything else to make the Bonvoy program worse, they strike again.

  4. Marriott can suck it. Wish I never brought my loyalty to them. After a 14 year top tier “loyalist”, I’ve now begun go to the Hyatt route. No more Marriott for me. BONVOYage!
