3 Comments

Marriott just released a list of hotels that are moving up and down in award categories in 2012. According to the release 100 hotels are moving down (I counted 97) and 526 are moving up (I counted 516). In percentage terms 3% are moving down and 14% are moving up. The rest are staying at the current category level. Marriott also has four Ritz-Carlton moving from Ritz-Carlton Category 4 to 3, two moving from category 2 to 3, and another two from 3 to 4.

Starwood released their category changes on February 16th. They had 13% moving down and 17% moving up. InterContinental Hotels Group announced on January 3rd that 25% of their hotels are moving up and 20% are moving down. They didn’t, however, provide a list of actual hotels moving in categories due to “competitive” reasons.

The vast majority of Marriott Rewards hotels are still in categories 1 – 4. I would argue, however, that the hotels that me and you would actually like to stay at are in categories 5 and higher.

You have until March 15th to book the hotels that are moving up in categories at the old point levels. You can download the PDF file that Marriott made public about the changes here.

What is a hotel category?
Hotel categories determine the number of Marriott Rewards points necessary to redeem for a free
night. For instance a category 1 hotel requires 7,500 points while a category 4 hotel requires 20,000
points (Here’s the full table). Marriott Rewards has 8 hotel categories which are determined by prior
year redemption volume at each hotel and are not determined by brand, rate, amenities, location, or
services offered.
What causes a hotel category to change?
Every loyalty program performs an annual audit on the categories that are assigned to each property. A
hotel’s category can change based on the number of redemption nights at that property in the prior
year. Marriott Rewards makes an effort to minimize these changes to maintain stability across the
portfolio of properties.

How many hotels are affected?
In 2012, 82% of our properties will remain unchanged. Approximately 3% (100 hotels) will decrease by
one category and about 15% (526 hotels) will increase by one category. With 81% of the Marriott
Rewards inventory continuing to reside in Categories 1 – 4 members will continue to enjoy great
flexibility when choosing a redemption destination.

    Marriott doens’t care its owners and progams points. Every year you need more points for the same hotel.

    • It is really unfortunately that the category creep is always upwards. IMHO, the best deal with Marriott are the travel packages. I need to write a piece about them in the future. That is the way, which I have redeemed my two million or so Marriott points that I have earned.
