Marriott Info & Tips
What should I do to make sure I’m booking a hotel at the best possible price?
Marriott has plenty of built-in discounts for a large variety of people. Certain government and military officials or employees are eligible for discount hotel rates at over 4,000 hotel locations worldwide, and may be able to get help with long-term housing through the Extended Stay brands. In addition, if you’re 62 years old or older, you can save 15% or more on your hotel booking at thousands of hotels worldwide! If you’re eligible for both of these discounts, or you’re not sure how to take advantage of them, feel free to contact customer service.
Use the Marriott Look No Further Best Rate Guarantee to be confident in your hotel booking decision. Just make an applicable reservation through the official app, website, or customer service line to reserve your price. If you find a lower rate for an identical hotel within 24 hours, you can submit a claim to receive the lower price! Not only will Marriott match the price, but you’ll also receive either an extra 25% discount or 5,000 Loyalty Program Points. It’s an easy way to keep your peace of mind, no matter how many rooms you’re booking.
Always check Savings.com before you finish the booking process to make sure there aren’t any extra discounts you’re missing. Hotel discounts change drastically from day to day, and a Marriott coupon can make a huge difference, whether you’re booking for a day or a month.
What is the Marriott Loyalty Program?
With Marriott’s Loyalty Program, you can get exclusive perks and benefits just for booking hotels as you usually would! Benefit levels include Member, Silver Elite, Gold Elite, Platinum Elite, Platinum Premier Elite, and Platinum Premier Elite With Ambassador. By maintaining years of elite status, you can also be upgraded to Lifetime Silver Elite, Lifetime Gold Elite, or Lifetime Platinum Elite! Lifetime statuses never expire, even if you don’t meet the requirements for a year.
By moving up the Marriott Loyalty Program ranks, you get better rewards; upon reaching Platinum Premier Elite, for example, you get 75% points bonus, guarantees that include a guaranteed room type, lounge access, and availability within 48 hours for rush requests. Nights are calculated yearly: Member status is 0-9 nights, Silver Elite is 10-24 nights, Gold Elite is 25-49 nights, Platinum Elite is 50-74 nights, Platinum Premier Elite is 75-99 nights, and Platinum Premier Elite With Ambassador is over 100 nights per year, as well as $20,000 in annual qualifying spending. Lifetime tiers have much more stringent requirements: Lifetime Silver Elite requires at least 250 nights overall and five years of elite status, Lifetime Gold Elite requires at least 400 nights and seven years of Gold Elite or higher, and Lifetime Platinum Elite requires at least 600 nights and 10 years of Platinum Elite or higher. Just book normally to get your benefits.
How do I change a reservation?
The easiest way to make sure you’ll be able to change a reservation is to become a member before you book the hotel room. You’ll be able to make changes to your reservation, cancel your reservation, or create a new booking at the same hotel from your account’s “My Trips" panel. However, if you’re not a member, or you haven’t created an online account, you can change your information by using “Lookup Reservation" and inputting your reservation confirmation number, arrival date, and full name. If you’ve booked more than one room, you can change dates for all your rooms by using “Modify Reservations," or change information for just one by using “Edit Room."
Can I cancel my reservation if I don’t need it anymore?
The cancellation policy varies between different hotels and rooms. Once you’ve chosen a hotel, you’ll see a list of rate details below the room’s description, which will also give you a summary of the cancellation policy. When you go to book, you’ll also see the cancellation policy on the Review Reservation Details page. After booking, opening the reservation will show the cancellation policy as well. To cancel applicable reservations, look up your reservation or go to the My Trips panel and follow the instructions.
