Marriott extending benefits 2022/2023 (?) Hilton does....

Hello,

I just received an mail from Hilton saying:
  • All elite status will be extended through March 2023
  • All 2021 nights will rollover to next year
  • No Points will expire until the end of 2022
  • Elite status tier requirements lower than 2019 tier qualifications
Will Marriott follow?

They should follow, but we know Marriott doesn't care about their guests and just cares about their franchisees, so I wouldn't bet on it

Even the Fairfield breakfast no longer has consistency , stayed a 5 different ones in one state this summer, when asked they said the "owners" trying to cut costs. But that said should get back to the thread topic

Hilton is big enough that I think Marriott will have to do something to match this.

Even if Marriott follows, it's been disheartening seeing Marriott behind the curve all through out the pandemic.

Marriott is always following what our chains are doing, never being the ones that first announce these customer friendly changes. Really shows you how much Marriott cares about their members.

Will Marriott actually follow though? They did not extend status even last year (although the half EQN rollover was pretty generous) and they have not matched the promos of IHG/Hyatt/Hilton

Marriott will follow with "and our lounges will continue to be closed until some indeterminate date in 2023, and housekeeping will be available via cash or points only"

Yeah, I am not expecting Marriott to be as generous.

Just for fun, my guess for what Marriott will do
  • Same half of EQN rollover as last year
  • Extend free night certs to June 31, 2022
  • No points expiration until start of 2023

I would love half EQN rollover if only because it would automatically get my mom to lifetime Platinum status without having spent more than 5 nights at a Marriott hotel since 2019 lol

I agree, which is why I said even IF Marriott follows.

Honestly, given my low expectations with Marriott, I think we should be glad if they offer this.

Im in favor of them not following suite, next year is likely to be much the same, so will they just extend status again in 2022?

I would be happy if they do the same half (25/38nights) rollover again - based on the higher of 2019 or 2020 or 2021 status. Aka lots who still arent on the road, keep them loyal but incentivize those who are back to stay.

meanwhile Ive already got globalist now with Hyatt and banking the occasional Hilton night (Gold already via Amex)

hyatt is a superior program however a smaller network of available hotels. I can find a Marriott or Hilton In more places.

Marriott will not just extend another year. Don't forget they ran a double elite night credit to give us every chance of renewing/upgrading. Plus the simple and obvious credit card options for more elite nights. A Platinum from 2019 has absolutely no reason not to be a Platinum in 2022 if they choose to be...

I wouldn't mind another 25 free nights though. Even then Marriott are trying their best to get me to stop staying, even though I'm really close to LT Plat.

Me too.

I have 300 EQN this year. Half EQN rollover gets me automatic Titanium for 2023.

Ooops maybe that is not true. They might do rollover for only 38 EQN.

With 15 EQN from CC, that's automatic Platinum?

Hilton status is a pathetic joke, they don't need to worry about devaluing it, it's hardly worth anything to begin with.

I would be very surprised to see anything from Marriott beyond what they did for 2021.
