The stay will be credited to the year in which it began and the nights will credit to the year in which each one of them falls.

Example: An eligible stay check in December 30, 2020 - check out January 2, 2021 will credit as follows:

2 nights of the stay (Dec 30 & 31) will credit to 2020. 1 night (Jan 1) will credit to 2021.

How about $$$ spend? Is that also apportioned across years in the same manner?

Threads merged and wiki added.

Those members considering posting more rolly-eyed “this gets asked every year” stuff could always direct their energies instead to adding “The definitive guide to how it will work in the new combined program” to the wiki.

Check-in December - Check-out January

Now that Starwood's systems have migrated to Marriott's, I have to relearn everything once again.

With Starwood (SPG), the rules were as follows:

Question
For stays over the New Year, checking-in in December and checking-out in January, how are the stay credits and night credits accounted for ?

Answer
The stay credit goes to whichever year your stay began.
The night credits belong to whichever year each individual night begins.

Examples
Check in 30 Dec 2017, check out 1 Jan 2018 :
1 stay credit for 2017.
2 night credits for 2017.

Check in 31 Dec 2017, check out 2 Jan 2018 :
1 stay credit for 2017.
1 night credit for 2017 & 1 night credit for 2018.

Do the same rules apply with Marriott?

Thanks!

LOL - the problem with Flyertalk search is you need to use the exact same terms. In other words, it's useless.

When I did a google, it found the Starwood thread, but it didn't find the Marriott thread.

Thanks for your help!

In the future, you can go to google and type in "SEARCHTERM site:flyertalk.com" (without the quotes) and it will search the site . Hope that helps!

The example in the wiki seems confusing to me:

Example: An eligible stay from December 27, 2018 - January 2, 2019 will credit as follows:

The stay will credit to 2018. 5 nights of the stay will credit to 2018. 2 nights will credit to 2019.

For 2019, and beyond, the nights will credit to the year in which they fall.
12/27 - 1/2 is a 6 night stay with 7 nights being credited. Shouldn't it be a stay from 12/27 - 1/3? So only the nights starting in 2019 are credited to 2019.

I checked out on 1/1 and the stay has posted and I have 0 nights for 2019, and reading this thread that is what is expected.

I'm hoping for the latter, it would make the most sense... but with the whole IT mess I'm afraid those nights which I need to renew status will just ... disappear. (FWIW, this is a SPG property I've booked)

Any experiences doing this in the old Marriott program?
Care to share if your all nights posted for for 2019 or were they split into 2018 and 2019? We plan to apply a 7N cert stay for NYE this year, and since rollover is no more, we were hoping for stays to credit for 2020.

Thanks!

I stayed December 30 and checked out on January 1. My spend and nights counted toward 2018, not 2019.

That would be expected. But the example asked about was a stay with a check-out 1/3. I would expect the system to break up the nights, but not sure how it will handle the spend. I'd almost expect two folios with one as of 1/1 and another for the rest of the stay.

$$ Spend Credit

Can anyone confirm when the $ spend will post for a 12/31-1/1 stay? I couldnít find this in the wiki.

I have an award stay for 12/31-1/1 where Iíll be spending ~$1K for a NYE dinner/party package thru the hotel. This should be what pushes me over the $20K threshold to keep ambassador status. But Iíll need this to post to 2019 and not 2020.

Hi Traveler56789,

The spend will count towards the year in which the member checks-out.
