Marriott Bonvoy Award Category Changes March 3, 2021


Marriott Bonvoy today announced its award category changes that will take place on March 3, 2021.

It is unfortunate that Mariott, despite crashing paid and occupancy rates, will only lower the number of points required at 150 hotels and will require more at 51.

Note that there are often last-minute changes for hotels moving up and down in categories between when Marriott has released the list and when these changes occur.

Here’s the list:

Only one hotel move two categories up from 3 to 5: Schloss Lieser, Autograph Collection.


There is no excuse not to lower more hotels in categories because when “normal” rates return in a few years, Marriott Bonvoy is immediately moving thousands of hotels up in categories when rates really haven’t changed at all
