Update: Marriott Properties Excluded From The Weekend Breakfast Benefit (1000 Points Instead)

by John Ollila on June 27, 2013

Marriott made an announcement in May about the breakfast changes at their North American JW Marriott, Marriott, Renaissance, and Autograph Collection hotels starting on June 22, 2013. Gold and Platinum members are now eligible for continental breakfast 7 days week at non-resort locations. You can read my previous articles about this change here, here, and here.

There were some properties that were excluded from this benefits and Marriott provided me a list about them:

marriott-breakfast-excluded-original

Three properties that were on the original list, now do offer this benefit:

– Atlanta Marriott Marquis

– Los Angeles Airport Marriott

– Renaissance Chicago Downtown

marriott-breakfast-excluded

And then there is one new property that has been added to this excluded list:

– New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge (starting on August 3)

Here’s the list of excluded properties:

– Boston Marriott Copley Place
– JW Essex House
– New Orleans Marriott
– Renaissance Time Square
– Boston Marriott Long Wharf
– JW Marriott Indianapolis
– New York Marriott East Side
– San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina
– Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile
– JW Marriott Washington DC
– New York Marriott Marquis
– San Francisco Airport Marriott
– Philadelphia Marriott Downtown
– New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge (effective August 3)

Marriott is making this too confusing with properties dropping off and being added to this list. If they are going to offer this benefit to their Gold and Platinum members, it should be offered at all of these brands (preferably in Courtyards as well and resort locations that are still excluded).

Conclusion

Let’s hope that this exclusion list gets shorter rather than longer, as is happening with this latest development. Marriott should have been able to encourage these properties to offer this benefit instead of points to their Gold and Platinum members. Consistency is the key!
