With Audrey, we have always enjoyed our stays in Autograph Collection hotels. You can see the style of the hotels through these different reviews:
With Marriott Bonvoy points?
Theoretically, it will be possible to earn and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points for stays in one of these all-inclusive hotels. This is already the case in the few all-inclusive hotels that are part of Marriott Bonvoy.
However, we will have to wait a while to find out more about:
- the categories of these hotels
- the benefits for Marriott Bonvoy’s Elite members
Also, due to the partnership with Sunwing, could we imagine the possibility of booking a flight + hotel package with Marriott Bonvoy points? Anything is possible.
This is an interesting move by Marriott, which is seeking to diversify its portfolio of activities (after the rental of apartments and houses via Marriott Homes and Villas).
There will certainly be an audience for this, especially among Canadians who love all-inclusive travel!
