A LoyaltyLobby reader sent us a question regarding the daily F&B credit for Platinum and higher members who stay at Courtyards hotels in the United States, Canada, and the EU?
You can access Marriott’s page for Elite benefits here.
There appears to be confusion between what is displayed on the Marriott Elite Benefit Guarantees page and the program T&Cs.
I have been in touch with the Marriott spokesperson, who has confirmed that there is a mistake in the Elite Benefits Guarantees page and that the $10 daily credit applies to the Guest + 1. The page is updated in due course.
Marriott’s Elite Benefit Guarantees:
You should always book Courtyard hotels in the United States, Canada, and the EU for two to get $20 in F&B credits daily.
Courtyard Hotels in Asia are much more upscale and practically full-service hotels, some with executive lounges and lavish breakfasts. I am not sure why the brand is so depressing in most North America, with few exceptions.
