Travel Recommendations

PSA: If you regularly stay at a Marriott property with points, check if the rate has increased. Marriott made the Miami Beach Edition a category 8, up from 7 in 2018-19, and 6 in 2017. Bastards!

Where have you been? Category 8 didn’t exist before bonvoy. Hence the reason everyone urged everyone to book before the merger. Also, edition was a category 8 in 2019. I stayed there.

Does Marriott ever upgrade your status level from Platinum to Platinum Elite? Missed it by 3 nights at 72 :(. Part of me is happy because less time on road but at least 20 nights in nonMarriott hotels

Can’t find any Marriott stays even close to 0.8 cents per point no matter how many times I search the Bonvoy app. What gives?
