Marriott Bonvoy Suite Nights Awards Update
Marriott revealed today several changes to Suite Night Awards, which is one of the perks for Marriott Bonvoy elites. Among qualifying members with Platinum Elite status and above, Suite Night Awards is the most popular of the Annual Choice Benefits options.
Marriott says that soon it will be easier to access these exclusive awards and enjoy premium rooms and suites. These changes were previously reported based on an internal memo, and are now officially coming next year.
Starting in early 2024, the following updates will apply:
- Nightly Upgrade Awards will be the new name for Suite Nights Awards to better align with the benefit. Nightly Upgrade Awards are one-night confirmable upgrades to a premium room or suite.
- Members will be able to choose from five additional brands when redeeming their awards: The Ritz-Carlton, EDITION, Aloft, Element and Protea Hotels
- Nearly 20% more premium rooms and suites will be available for upgrades across all participating brands with features like oceanfront rooms, balconies, and extra space.
- Members will receive notification regarding the status of their Nightly Upgrade Awards request closer to check-in, starting three days prior to arrival.
