Marriott International’s three loyalty programmes – Marriott Rewards, which includes The Ritz-Carlton Rewards, and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) – will operate under one set of unified benefits and one currency spanning the entire loyalty portfolio of 29 brands and more than 6,700 participating hotels in 130 countries and territories. Members can now combine their separate programme accounts into one to take advantage of Marriott’s loyalty programmes offered worldwide. Members now earn on average 20 per cent more points per dollar spent and have their Elite status recognised consistently at every hotel as they indulge in the elevated benefits they’ve earned. Additionally, members now have the added convenience to book stays throughout the portfolio on Marriott.com, SPG.com, and the Marriott and SPG Apps, or by contacting customer engagement centres.
“We merged the incredible earning and redeeming power of Marriott Rewards with the phenomenal Elite benefits of SPG to create one of the richest travel loyalty programmes with the most extraordinary global portfolio of hotels – from overwater bungalows to mountainside ski resorts and iconic urban landmarks,” says David Flueck, Senior Vice President, Global Loyalty, Marriott International.
