Since Frequent Miler’s beginning, we’ve written hundreds of posts about Marriott. That can be a lot to dig through! To help you get started, we’ve created Complete Guides about popular topics like this. Here’s an excerpt from our Marriott Bonvoy Complete Guide for example:

Marriott Bonvoy is the all-in-one rewards program which replaced Marriott Rewards, Starwood Preferred Guest, and Ritz-Carlton Rewards.  Compared to other programs, in my opinion, Marriott Bonvoy offers better than average rewards for paid stays, a strong elite program (but not best overall), best-in-class options for point transfers to airline miles, a huge selection of hotels that run from very low end to ultra-luxury, and credit cards that offer good value for their annual free nights but relatively poor value for credit card spend.  This post is designed to include everything you need to know.

While the Complete Guide may be the best place to start learning, the posts below can help you dig deeper, answer specific questions, or stay up-to-date on Marriott-related news.
