Legacy to New Travel Package Conversion (effective August 2019)
A Marriott supervisor can currently convert your legacy travel package into the new category mapping. If you hold a Category 6, 8, or Tier 1-3 legacy certificate, it's ideal to downgrade your certificate before converting so that points don't potentially get lost in the process.

The codes for the new partial packages are:
New Cat 1-4: QP83
New Cat 5: QP91
New Cat 6: QP99
New Cat 7:

This process will cancel your current Travel Package, reissue a Travel Package one category lower and result in a refund of 30,000 points to your account. To submit a request, follow these steps:
  • Select “Packages - Deals” from the “Topic” drop down menu
  • Submit your request
As a reminder, status.marriott.com will periodically have additional updates.

The legacy certificates map to the new certificates as such:
Cat 1-5 => Cat 1-4
Cat 6 => Cat 1-4
Cat 7 => Cat 5
Cat 8 => Cat 5
Cat 9 => Cat 6
Tier 1-3 => Cat 6
Tier 4-5 => Cat 7
==================================================

If you are unsure where you will use your 7 night stay, when you request the package, just ask for a category 1-5 hotel. That way you are out of the least number of points. If later, you decide to book for a higher level category, then you can do so and pay the difference the travel package points. If you can't use your certificate within the year, then as close to the one year anniversary (without going over!) call to extend the certificate for one more year. That's as long as they will typically allow, one extension. There is an option to expedite the mileage delivery to within three business days (sometimes faster) for $15. There are reports that this fee may be waived for platinum members.

Effective April 1 2017 re: Southwest & the companion pass:

"Purchased points, points converted from hotel and car loyalty programs, and e-Rewards, e-Miles, Valued Opinions and Diners Club, points earned from Rapid Rewards program enrollment, tier bonuses, flight bonuses, and partner bonuses (excluding points bonuses earned on the Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase) do not count toward Companion Pass."

Can I book SPG properties with my Marriott Travel Package? As of 9/1/2018 apparently not. see https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/30155836-post6529.html

Wrong forum unless Marriott is buying Choice too.

Actually, they posted 3 days ago. They just back dated the transaction to Nov 30 so you're not as far out of the loop as they would like to make you think.

OT = "off-topic." Which my post was only halfway, because although Choice is not Marriott, it still is relevant to UA giving bonuses on transfers of hotel points!

Hey, stupid question from a newbie to the Marriott packages

I'm building up enough points to redeem for a 7 night package sometime in the next few months, my target destination is Hawaii

Looking online and checking reservations using points, I see hotels still have a charge on top of the point redemption? For example Mauna Kea is showing 270,000 points plus $150/night

I guess I was expecting basically a free stay, or at the very least just having to pay resort fees which seem to average around $30/day, or should I be looking at a lower category hotel?

What you are probably seeing are "upgraded" rooms. For example, they might be ocean view or mountain view or ocean front, or a suite room, etc. You will need to look through the whole list of room options to see if they still have any base standard rooms available for the times you are looking at. If they do, the standard rooms aren't always at the top of the list (hence checking the whole room list.)

Ah thanks! Just to confirm, things such as resort fee's would always be need to be paid extra on top of the points?

Yes and the rate "details" should show all the breakouts.

Wow! Do Marriotts charge resort fees to guests on points?! (Most) Hyatts & Fairmonts don't!

Yes. It can be a killer at a property like The Cosmopolitan to use 45K points per night and then also be expected to pay their $50/night "amenity fee" (resort fee).

When calling in to book a 7 night stay, is it safe to assume if there is no availability for free reward nights online to book, there also won’t be for these 7 night packages?
