Marriott Rewards Combined Award Chart & All Suite SPG Properties?

4 Comments

Marriott Rewards released on June 28 (read more here and here) combined award chart that includes all the SPG properties that would in place once the programs are merged (this coming Saturday).

St Regis Bora Bora

The award chart was supposed to be complete (there were no * anywhere) and has the number of points required for a free night at each hotel in the system (including the previously ridiculously expensive all suite SPG hotels).

You can access Marriott’s page for combined program here.

The new program T&Cs that were posted here from the Marriott’s site:

  • The Naka Island, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Phuket, Thailand
  • Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villas, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Here are the current SPG T&Cs:

Free Night Awards at the following locations require higher Starpoint redemption amounts either because the hotel does not have standard rooms or the standard rooms it offers have a mandatory Full Board requirement in peak seasons:

  • Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand
  • The Naka Island, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Phuket, Thailand
  • Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villas, Steamboat Springs, Colorado
  • The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal, Costa Rica
  • The St Regis Bora Bora, French Polynesia
  • Le Meridien Bora Bora, French Polynesia
  • Mystique, Santorini, Santorini, Greece
  • The St. Regis Bali Resort, Nusa Dua, Indonesia
  • Hotel Cala di Volpe, Hotel Pitrizza,
  • Hotel Romazzino, Costa Smeralda, Italy
  • W Retreat & Spa, North Ari Atoll, Maldives
  • The St. Regis Vommuli Resort, Vommuli, Maldives

  • St. Regis Residence Club, Aspen, CO
  • Sunset Key Guest Cottages, A Westin Resort, Key West, FL
  • Phoenician Residences, Luxury Collection Residence Club, Scottsdale, AZ

The minimum number of Starpoints for the Vana Belle, Koh Samui; The Naka Island, Phuket; and the Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villa, Steamboat, which are all Category 6 hotels, is 40,000 Starpoints per night. The minimum number of Starpoints required for a free night at the other properties listed, which are all Category 7 properties, can range from 31,500 to 140,000 Starpoints per night depending on the hotel, its category, its room types, the time of year, and/or it’s mandatory requirements. Redemptions at these hotels must be booked through your local customer contact center.

Conclusion

Some of these properties have been terrible value using Starpoints and SPG have used award sales (read more here and here) to get people to redeem at them.

Not sure why Marriott Rewards would intentionally mislead people to believe that all the properties max at 60,000 points per night until the end of this year (at category 7 level without seasonality) if that is not the case? Did someone at the Marriott mistakenly just copy/paste the old SPG T&Cs when it came to these specialty properties without thinking twice? Well. We will know for sure this coming Saturday!

When Marriott Rewards released this chart, I pointed out that being able to redeem at some of these highly sought after properties at just 60,000 points per night would be theoretical due to very limited number of “standard” rooms. (less than a handful at many properties)
