Conclusion

Marriott Rewards did a mini (or major) devaluation when they combined the programs last year. Many lower category properties jumped up significantly in number of points required while the former SPG top tier hotels came down significantly.

These changes that will take place on March 5, 2019 are not major if you look at the entire Marriott hotel portfolio. They will, however, tend to affect properties at which members love to redeem at.
