Marriott 3rd night free after staying 2 nights at any hotel any date

From site: To earn your free night:

Join Marriott Rewards and be automatically registered to earn your free night certificate

Stay twice at participating hotels during your earning period*. Your earning period starts the day you enrol through the end of that month, plus an additional 120 days

Earn a free night at a category 1 – 5 hotel after your 2nd paid stay

E.g. very outer London hotels are £58-62 some nights. You can stay 1 night. Then another time, 1 night. Then another time, have your 1 free night.

You get 4-5 months to do these stays, but then a year to claim your free 1-night stay. Catagories of hotels can be seen marriott.co.uk/rew….mi

Oooooo! This sounds brilliant for people touring a country for example who want to make 1-3 day stays in each location.

Anyone know if this is repeatable?
Like
2 nights in Spain, 1 night free in Morroco, then again
2 nights in Cairo 1, night free in Quebec then again e.t.c

Don't see why not. I think the free stay is ANYWHERE as long as it's category 1-5.

Not many Cat 1-5 in this country.

New joiners only

This will only work once for one free night and it is only for new joiners to the loyalty scheme.

The best loyalty scheme still remains Hotels dot com with 1 free night for every 10 stays.

Failing that you would be better signing up for IHG accelerate

"A stay is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel" - does this mean you have to stay at least two nights per stay? A single night can't be consecutive.

Also, where does it say that you can qualify by staying two nights in a row (original post)?

I think you can stay 1 or 2 or 3 or however many nights but it must be 2 occasions. They mean if you stay 2 or 3 nights, it still counts as one STAY and you must have two STAYS.

Yeah, I guess they only mean you can't check out and in again to qualify for a new stay.

I have a night booked at a Marriott Courtyard coming up soon so I might try to book another one somewhere. I assume a stay booked via Hotels.com would qualify... can't see anything that says it needs to be booked directly.

I think it will need to be as it's all about the Marriott Rewards scheme.

No. Stays with hotels.com DO NOT qualify for status or anything normally with Hilton on Marriott. I am a marriott Platinum and my company recently booked a room via hotels.com. The nights did not appear on my account and I did not get any Platinum benefits. I spoke to the manager and he said this has been the case for some time.

Thanks for confirming. I thought the free night thing might be different since the T&Cs don't mention anything. I've been looking at my cancellable bookings on hotels.com and hotels to book directly with Marriott instead, but they're so much more expensive. I don't think I'd be any better off even if I did find a nice hotel to redeem the free night on.

Hotels.com are still the best reward scheme in the U.K.

Booking directly with Marriott for reward status is not advised (normally) since Hotels.com have a much more superior loyalty scheme.

Yea. Unfortunately this is how the big chains work now. You could call the hotel and see what they say. Some hotels/management are more helpful than others when it comes to rules. Its also worth noting that there aren't many Cat 1-5 Marriott's in the UK. There are plenty elsewhere, but the list in the UK is fairly sparse these days.

Rubbish deal. Hardly any Category 1-5 in cities I go to (hong kong and new york).

Cold.

Do they not offer a best price guarantee e.g. book, send link and then get refund?
