Get ready for Marriott Bonvoy

Blog Post created by communitymanagers on Feb 8, 2019

Hi Insiders,

 

Marriott Bonvoy — the new name for Marriott Rewards, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and SPG — launches February 13. Get ready for a fresh perspective on our travel program.

 

With the launch so close, we want to make sure you have what you need to make the most of Marriott Bonvoy. Start by adding MarriottBonvoy@marriott-email.com to your safe-sender list to make sure you don’t miss any Marriott Bonvoy communications.

 

Here’s your checklist to get started:

 

• Review Category changes: This year’s category changes will take effect on March 5. The overall percentage of hotels changing categories is smaller than in the past five years. Only 5 percent of our portfolio will be affected by the annual category changes process (excluding the arrival of Category 8). Some hotels in popular destinations are moving down a category, like W Hollywood, The Naka Island, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa Phuket and Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa. Pro tip: Check out the hotels moving to decide when to book.

• New Free Night Award Category 8 coming soon: Category 8 hotel redemption rates will take effect March 5. Pro tip: Explore all categories now and decide if you want to book before or after March 5 to maximize your points.
