Is this a good promotion?

It’s great to see this promotion again, after similar ones in 2021 and 2022.

This is a great promotion as Marriott Bonvoy members can achieve the Platinum status after staying just 25 nights within the 75-night promotional period.

This can be achieved at a fairly low cost if you can have plans in Malaysia or Indonesia in the coming months!

Marriott’s membership status earned in 2023 can be enjoyed till Dec 2024. The Platinum status gets you the following key benefits:

  • Complimentary breakfast
  • Club lounge access (incl. complimentary food and drinks, alcoholic too)
  • Room upgrades up to a suite
  • Late check-out up to 4pm
  • Choose a milestone bonus upon reaching 50 Elite Nights

On top of that, members also get to earn 1,000 bonus points (worth US$6) per night, on paid stays. Fixed-points promotions like this are more valuable for stays in cheaper properties.


Bottom line

Marriott Bonvoy members are getting 1,000 bonus points and 1 additional Elite Night Credit for paid stays in the coming months.

In my opinion, Marriott Bonvoy’s Platinum/Titanium status is the best hotel membership status for travellers based in Singapore and the surrounding region.

This is because, Marriott-affiliated hotels in this region mostly hold high standards in hardware, F&B and service. On top of that, they are also more willing to go above and beyond in offering benefits that come with the status, unlike properties in North America.

Additional note: While I receive similar status recognition with World of Hyatt, its small collection of hotels (only 1,000+ vs Marriott’s 7,000+) and US$200k spending requirement for a lifetime status discourages me from prioritizing it as my top hotel status.

  1. Are the extra elite nights counted towards lifetime status? ie if I stay 5 nights during the promo period, will 10 nights count for LIFETIME ELITE requirements?

    • It’s a global promotion that is available to everyone. Some readers reported that the link wasn’t working earlier, but it worked again a few minutes later. Try again later?
