Elite Benefits and British Airways Holidays

I am aware that some booking made through OTAs are not eligible for Elite Benefits but wonder if this also applies to bookings made through British Airways Holidays?

Specifically I am Lifetime Titanium and looking to book a stay at the Melrose Arch in Jo'Burg and want to know if I would get lounge access/brekkie benefit?

TIA

no, you need to book on a marriott channel, either the app or M.com but properties can provide the benefits as a courtesy but its the exception, not the rule

No benefits, but you might get lucky.

In these situations - where the driving factor is presumably double Tier Points instead of the hotel stay - I try to broaden my horizons and try a boutique or non-chain hotel...

Thank you both for confirming my suspicions, I just thought as BA and Marriott do have a relationship things might have been different. When in Jo'Burg I don't use Marriott at all as I like the Palazzo Monte Casino but sadly BA Holidays don't offer that so I'll have another look at what is available.

I've gotten lucky with 3+ BA holidays. Go into the BA booking and pull out the Marriot confirmation numbers. Use those on Marriott.com to associate the booking to your Bonvoy account. From there, the hotel - at least for me - has recognized and treated me as Titanium...
