Marriott Bonvoy Completes Integration of City Express by Marriott
Marriott International revealed today that City Express by Marriott properties have transitioned into the company’s loyalty program, Marriott Bonvoy. That means that members can now earn points at nearly 150 additional hotels in the Caribbean and Latin America.
Marriott International completed the acquisition of the City Express brand portfolio in May, entering the affordable midscale segment and launching its 31st brand, City Express by Marriott, making it the largest hotel company in the region.
Marriott Bonvoy is Marriott International’s travel program and marketplace for its portfolio of 31 hotel brands that offer loyal guests many ways to get the most out of their membership for more rewarding travel and member-only experiences. Members can earn points for stays at hotels and resorts, including all-inclusive resorts and premium home rentals, and through everyday purchases with co-branded credit cards. Members can redeem their points for experiences, including stays and Marriott Bonvoy Moments, giving members access to inspiring experiences around the corner and across the globe.
The City Express loyalty program, known as City Premios Rewards, was highly recognized among Latin American travelers. It has now been fully integrated into Marriott Bonvoy and no longer exists as a separate program. Many existing City Premios members have already transferred their points and become Marriott Bonvoy members, further growing Marriott Bonvoy which currently has more than 186 million members worldwide with more than 6 million in the Caribbean and Latin America. Points transfers are possible until September 30th.
Marriott Bonvoy is offering City Premios members a status match during the transition phase. In addition, select City Premios benefits, such as gift card redemptions for some of the most popular third-party vendors like Liverpool, Cinepolis, and more, will continue to be available with Marriott Bonvoy.
All City Express by Marriott hotels are now bookable on Marriott.com and the Marriott Bonvoy app for a seamless booking and travel experience. The Marriott Bonvoy app affords members an elevated level of personalization and a contactless experience for travel with peace of mind.
A detailed list of Marriott Bonvoy member benefits for City Express by Marriott stays is available on the Marriott Bonvoy website under City Express by Marriott. Redemption will go live in the coming days via Marriott.com and the Marriott Bonvoy app. Marriott Bonvoy Members can enjoy the following Member Benefits at City Express Hotels:
