Marriott is currently running a promotion that’s giving 5,000 bonus points per stay when booking stays of 2+ nights in upgraded rooms and suites and using promotional code M41. Although the nature of those room types mean your stay will cost at least a little more versus booking a base room, the extra space, extra benefits (in some cases) and bonus points could certainly make it worthwhile.
- Earn 5,000 bonus points per stay when staying 2+ nights in an upgraded room or suite at participating Marriott properties & when using promotional code M41.
- Direct link to offer.
- Valid on stays November 30, 2023-February 19, 2024.
- Use promotional code M41.
- Minimum stay of at least two nights.
- Offer applies to one regular room per stay, per member on dates listed. A “hotel stay” or “stay” means all consecutive nights spent with Marriott by a registered Marriott Bonvoy member.
- Offer not available during special events; tax is additional; special offers cannot be combined; blackout dates may exist; advance reservations are required.
- Offer does not apply to groups of 10 or more rooms.
- Members electing to earn miles are not eligible for this promotion.
I’m sure that the value of this offer will vary from property to property, plus it’ll be better value on stays of two nights versus anything longer seeing as you’d then be earning 2,500 bonus points per night.
This could also be a particularly useful offer for someone who doesn’t have Platinum status or higher. That’s because those with Platinum, Titanium or Ambassador status with Marriott are eligible for lounge access, free breakfast (in most cases), so someone with Gold or lower status who books a room with lounge access will then also have breakfast and potentially other meals covered.
However, be sure to check if your upgraded room or suite actually includes breakfast and/or lounge access if you’re counting on that. For example, the Anaheim Marriott Suites is available for a two nights stay in January for $156 per night before tax. The two eligible room types for this 5,000 bonus points rate are a 1 bedroom Executive Suite with one king and a sofa bed which can accommodate four people or a 1 bedroom Executive Suite with two double beds and a sofa bed which can accommodate six people – awesome if you’re a large family visiting Disneyland.
Now, calling it an Executive Suite might make it seem like you’ll have access to an Executive lounge. That’s not the case at this specific property though. Instead, the ‘Executive’ nature of the suite relates to its size in comparison to other rooms at the hotel. Now, paying an extra $20 per night for this much larger suite that can accommodate up to six people and comes with 5,000 bonus points per stay could still certainly be worth it, but the lack of breakfast and lounge access (unless you have Platinum status or higher) might not be immediately apparent.
That issue isn’t always the case though. For example, the Sheraton Albuquerque Airport does have rooms with Club Lounge access bookable with the M41 promo code.
Similarly, the Sheraton Ann Arbor has Executive rooms that do have Club Lounge access bookable with this promotion. What’s particularly interesting is that this rate is cheaper than the standard rate for this room type ($200 before tax) even though it also comes with 5,000 bonus points per stay. I’d been expecting the M41 code to jack up prices, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, at least not with the searches that I did.
This is valid on stays through February 19, so if you’re looking at adding a bit of comfort and luxury to your paid stays, it’s worth adding this promo code to see if it’ll give you extra benefits versus the room type you’d have booked otherwise.
