Conclusion

Seems that few Delta Hotels decided to reflag once Marriott purchased the chain year ago, as the number of purchased properties was higher at the time.

This integration happened much faster than when Marriott purchase Cape Town (where I am right now) based Protea Hotels. Their integration took two years.

I would expect Marriott Rewards to offer bonus points promotion for stays at Delta Hotels once the partial integration on January 28 is completed.

Here are the Marriott’s frequently asked questions about this Delta Hotels integration:

Delta Hotels and Resorts® will participate in Marriott Rewards® in two phases:

  • 28 January 2016: Twenty-two Delta Hotels and Resorts properties will fully participate in Marriott Rewards. Members of Marriott Rewards and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards® will receive Elite benefits and earn points or miles and Elite night credits at these hotels. Members will also be able to redeem points for free night stays. See a complete list of participating hotels.
  • 29 January – May 2016: Marriott Rewards will complete necessary system upgrades at Delta Hotels and Resorts for 14 remaining properties. Throughout this period, members of Marriott Rewards and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards will receive recognition benefits during their stays. Members will not earn points, miles or Elite night credits for stays at these 14 hotels. Members will also not be able to redeem points toward free stays at these 14 remaining hotels until integration is complete. Members of Aeroplan® will receive 500 miles for qualifying stays at those hotels until 29 February 2016. Existing Delta Privilege members with earned hotel credit and upgrades have until 29 February 2016 to use them. See a complete list of the 22 hotels that will participate in Marriott Rewards during this second period as well as the 14 hotels that will be integrated in May.

How do I ensure that my Marriott Rewards number is captured and I receive Elite recognition benefits during my stays at Delta Hotels and Resorts between now and May 2016?

You must present your physical or mobile Marriott Rewards card upon arrival to ensure you receive benefits during your stays. If the hotel is fully participating in Marriott Rewards, you will earn points or miles and enjoy all member privileges. If the hotel is not yet fully participating, you will receive recognition benefits during your stays. See a complete list of both participating and non-participating hotels.

If I have questions regarding missing Aeroplan Miles at Delta Hotels and Resorts, whom should I contact?

Until 29 February 2016, if you have missing miles, you can e-mail partnerprogram@deltahotels.com for review and follow-up. Any missing miles will be promptly added to your Aeroplan Account.
