Transfer Emirates Skywards to Marriott Bonvoy

Hi all,

I am thinking about transferring some of my Emirates Skywards Miles to Marriott Bonvoy.
I am pretty sure that it used to be possible (also looking at their partners page - I cannot post the URL though).
Anyone having insights on if this is discounted or just paused? Or other hints how to transfer?
Thanks a lot in advance!

Not possible, the reverse is. Generally one can't transfer airline miles to hotel programmes while the reverse is broadly possible

Thanks for the reply.
I was not aware but good to know.
Is there any (smart) way to make that possible through other programs, e.g., Amex Rewards or something?
I am not planning to fly a lot of Emirates in the near future but do have some hotel stays coming up so would be great to be able to use a couple of 10,000 miles/their equivalent.
Any idea appreciated!

You can spend miles on hotel stays, directly, I think the easiest is probably with rocket miles. There are a few days to do so but the easiest is probably Rocket Miles. I've used them several times to earn miles, not to spend but it is an option they offer:

You can also book flights on EasyJet and JetBlue if either of those are useful to you

Cool, thanks for the additional comments.
I will look into Rocket Miles and also the option to redeem for EasyJet (good suggestion that I totally forgot about).
Thank you!
