Ritz-Carlton has extended an offer for all its Rewards members that can earn double night credits for all their Ritz-Carlton stays during the 2014.
You will earn two elite night credits for each night stayed during 2014. This offer is retroactive for all stays that have already taken place.
You can access this offer on Ritz-Carlton’s website here.
You must be Ritz-Carlton Rewards member during your stay and when it posts for the double night credits to correctly applied. Otherwise, you can continue switching between Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Rewards accounts.
Marriott should simply just “merge” the Marriott Rewards and Ritz-Carlton Rewards loyalty programs because it is merely a flag on your account which program your account is associated with.
This is a nice offer for those that stay a lot at Ritz-Carlton properties, although the “hard” benefits for Gold and Platinum members are on the soft side. If you are Platinum, you can often negotiate club access that is not an official benefit.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Guests must be a member of The Ritz-Carlton Rewards at the time of their stay. Stays must be at a participating Ritz-Carlton property, and for each eligible night, members will receive two Elite night credits. Nights spent while redeeming an award are not eligible for Elite night credit. Double Elite night credits are retroactively granted to members for all stays at Ritz-Carlton properties starting on January 1, 2014, and are automatically applied to members’ accounts. To be eligible for retroactive double Elite night credit, guests must have been a Ritz-Carlton Rewards member during that stay in 2014. Nights stayed at a Ritz-Carlton property as a member of the Marriott Rewards program are not eligible for double Elite night credit. Members can review their current status by logging into their account.
