A few weeks ago, I wrote about the impending adjustments at Marriott and SPG. The changes will be implemented on 6 March.
You can re-read what I wrote with these links.
Hundreds of hotels will be changing award categories. And you want to make sure to avoid any increases by booking any award ideas, even speculative ones, before the changes are implemented. Award nights are usually completely flexible, so you can cancel later if your plans fall through…
In addition, occasionally a few hotels will sneak onto the list (or sneak off of it). I’ve already noticed that the Four Points hotel in Las Vegas is no longer going to drop to a Category 2.
So, it’s worth revisiting the full list published by the two hotel chains. Again, here are the links you’ll need:
2018 might just be the last year that we see category changes in this format… since at some point we will surely witness the carnage of merging two award charts into one!! So you might want to be doubly conscious of burning any Marriott or SPG points on a hotel that is due to cost more on 6 March…
