A Study: Marriott Air and Hotel Package Redemption

Recently, Marriott has quietly added two more options for people redeeming air and hotel package, for 420K MR points, you can get the usual 120K airline miles (e.g. Aeroplan, Alaska or Virgin Atlantic), and a seven-night certificate at any tier 1-3 Ritz-Carlton or Edition properties. For 120K MR points more, you can get a seven-night certificate at any tier 4-5 Ritz or Edition hotels. 

Trip Reports

Walked out a JW and went to a Marriott instead!

In the past few visits to Shenzhen, I always stayed at the Marriott Nanshan, and I think it is probably one of the best Marriott hotels around the world. It is a Category 3 property based on the Marriott Rewards system and only requires 15,000 points for a night (5000 Starpoints respectively).
