Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Xiían, China

Posted this in a thread on the China forum, but havenít received any response to my post. Trying here to see if anyone has input:

Headed to Xiían in September. Have looked for current hotel recommendations, but havenít found much in regards to Marriott properties. Leaning towards the Westin, but considering all the newer options, renaissance, ritz, w...is there a better choice?

Budget is flexible. I often like to have lounge access. Also pertinent that I am doing a status challenge for Marriott so looking primarily at those properties. Getting off topic, but I do see that the Fairfield has very cheap rooms; even if I donít stay there, could I pad my Marriott nights a bit by booking a few nights there?


I think I have a partial answer to the part about padding nights. My current understanding is that I canít collect nights for two properties on the same nights (maybe I should consider other chains in Xiían to actually stay at?). However, I assume that I could check in to a cheap Marriott property on my departure date and just leave the keys in the room for housekeeping to find when my stay is up (assuming I donít check into another Marriott property elsewhere during the stay)?

There is an existing thread on the Westin Xian: Westin Xian, China [Master Thread]
And the Sheraton Xian: Sheraton Xian (Xi'an), China [Master Thread]
There is a stay review for the Sheraton Xian North City: Sheraton Xian North City Hotel, China [Master Thread]

It looks like there are other Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Xian, but no stay posts yet in those hotel threads.

I stayed at the Renaissance in Xian. Its really far south of the city and would require taxi or 10-15 minutes walk to the metro to get anywhere. There is nothing nearby within walking distance that I found and I walked around for a while looking. The hotel itself was pretty good and I was upgraded to a junior suite which happens to be the largest suite I've ever stayed at(just bathroom itself was larger than most normal rooms). Breakfast is in the restaurant or lounge but since you're doing a status challenge, I don't that is very helpful to you.

I've had hotels stay overlap and never had issue getting credit for them but its usually only for 1 night overlap. Only issue I can see that might come up is you have to check in with your passport and the hotel registers with the local police department. I'm sure about if you were going somewhere else in China and it shows up that you're staying at multiple hotels.

yes, Iíve read those posts, but thought maybe someone here might have insight into some of the newer Bonvoy properties. The last post on the Westin thread was over a year ago; I donít see anything of substance on either the W or the RC.

good point. Probably best to reconsider.
