Off-peak prices at majority of Marriott hotels during October
Most Marriott hotel bookings made between now and October 14, 2021, for stays until October 31, 2021, will be bookable using points at the off-peak price!
As a reminder, the Marriott Bonvoy reward chart is based on 8 categories with off-peak, standard and peak pricing.
Each Marriott hotel is assigned to a particular category. So, the number of points required for a free hotel night will vary depending on occupancy and the time of year.
Here is the Marriott Bonvoy hotel redemption chart.
Thus, under this Week of Wonders promotion, the price for all Marriott hotel stays (until October 31, 2021) would be found under the off-peak column.
Category 1 hotels only cost 5,000 points/night
This means a category 1 hotel would only cost 5,000 points/night and a category 8 hotel would cost 70,000 points/night.
For example, the TownePlace Suites hotel in Petawawa, Ontario is a category 1 hotel (one of the few in Eastern Canada). During this promotion, it would only cost a remarkably low 5,000 points for any night in October.
Add in Marriott’s 5th night free benefit and you could stay for 5 nights at this hotel for only 20,000 points! This is exactly what I did when I last stayed at this hotel in March 2021 so check out my full updated review of the TownePlace Suites Petawawa.
Also, this promotion is also valid for higher category hotels . Generally, most Marriott properties located in downtown urban centres or near airports are category 5 hotels.
For example, the Sheraton Gateway hotel, located beside Terminal 3 of the Toronto International Airport, would only cost 30,000 points per night during this promotion! This is definitely better than paying between the regular cash rates of $179 and $202 per night.
There are many offers available with Marriott’s “Week of Wonders” promotion. Certainly, the best offer for members would be off-peak pricing at the majority of Marriott hotels worldwide for stays until October 31, 2021. Generally, this means that members save a minimum of 33% when redeeming their points for hotel stays.
For Canadians with any upcoming domestic travel plans, this could be a great opportunity to save on their stay at any one of the 261 Marriott properties in Canada.
But hurry, this Marriott off-peak pricing promotion is valid until October 14, 2021!
