Where to Use the Marriott Bonvoy Annual Free Night Award in Canada?

To the point

Here is a selection of hotels in Canada to use the free night certificate that comes with your Marriott Bonvoy credit card.

2021 will be like 2020 for many travellers: it will be a holiday in Canada again!

As Marriott Bonvoy has just announced the extension until January 3, 2022, of the Annual Free Night Awards coming with Marriott Bonvoy credit cards, I present to you the list of the best Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Canada where you can use your Annual Free Night Award.

This list was made possible thanks to the complete map of the 250 Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Canada, exclusive to Milesopedia.

Marriott Bonvoy Annual Free Night Award

The Free Night Award is available each year when you renew your Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card and/or your Marriott Bonvoy™ Business American Express® Card.

This is an annual benefit that more than justifies annual fee ($120 and $150 respectively).

This Free Night Award has a 35,000 points value and can therefore be used at many Marriott Bonvoy hotels (up to category 5 at the standard rate):

Category Low season Standard Peak Season
1 5 000 7 500 10 000
2 10 000 12 500 15 000
3 15 000 17 500 20 000
4 20 000 25 000 30 000
5 30 000 35 000 40 000
6 40 000 50 000 60 000
7 50 000 60 000 70 000
8 70 000 85 000 100 000

Since the rate fluctuates from day to day, you’ll need to know how to search for your award night with the Marriott Bonvoy flexible date calendar. To find out how to do this, read this article.

Marriott Bonvoy Category 4 and 5 hotels in Canada in 2021

Marriott Bonvoy Annual Free Night Award has a maximum 35,000 points value. So the best hotels where you can use it are category 4 hotels (especially in Peak rate) and Category 5 hotels (at Off-Peak or Standard rates). To learn more about Off-Peak, Standard and Peak rates, please read this article.

Category Low season Standard Peak Season
4 20 000 25 000 30 000
5 30 000 35 000 40 000

But be aware that you may also be able to book a category 6 hotel when it falls into the“PointSavers” category with an Off-Peak rate: 35,000 points instead of 40,000. So you can use your Annual Free Night Award there.

I might as well warn you: this situation is rare. Here’s an example with 3 Category 6 hotels in Vancouver, combining PointSavers and an Off-Peak Rate at 35,000 points per night:
