[HOTEL] 2014 Reward Chart Changes with Marriott

We previously wrote about the Marriott Rewards program.

Marriott has completed their changes to the reward charts for 2014. As of April 8, 2014, the new Categories come into effect. Below are most of the changes to Canadian hotels:

Increases

  • The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal goes from Category RZ2 to RZ3.
  • The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto goes from Category RZ2 to RZ3.
  • Niagara Falls Fallsview Marriott goes from Category 7 to 8.
  • Niagara Falls Marriott Fallsview Hotel & Spa goes from Category 7 to 8.
  • Quebec City Marriott Downtown goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • Montreal Marriott Chateau Champlain goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville Hotel goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • Renaissance Vancouver Hotel Harbourside goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • Renaissance Toronto Hotel Downtown goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • SpringHill Suites Old Montreal goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • Courtyard Niagara Falls goes from Category 6 to 7.
  • Residence Inn Montreal Downtown goes from Category 5 to 6.
  • Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort goes from Category 5 to 6.
  • Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel goes from Category 5 to 6.
  • Residence Inn Vancouver Downtown goes from Category 5 to 6.
  • Residence Inn Toronto Downtown/Entertainment District goes from Category 5 to 6.
  • Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel goes from Category 3 to 4.
  • Courtyard Edmonton West goes from Category 3 to 4.
  • Courtyard Edmonton Downtown goes from Category 2 to 3.

Decreases

  • Residence Inn Toronto Vaughan drops from Category 5 to 4.
  • Residence Inn Toronto Mississauga/Meadowvale drops from Category 3 to 2.
  • Courtyard Ottawa East drops from Category 3 to 2.

Obviously more hotels are going up in the number of points needed for a reward night than going down. If you have a booking in mind, book before April 7, 2014 and Marriott will honour the reservation even if the stay occurs after April 8, 2014. If you are staying at a hotel that has a Category decrease, then wait until April 8, 2014 to book it.

You can jump-start your Marriott Rewards account with the Chase Marriott Rewards Premier Visa Card.
