The Atlantis is made up of 4 towers that will participate for redemption stays. They are as follows:

Atlantis, Beach Tower - Category 7
Atlantis, Coral Towers - Category 7
Atlantis, Royal Towers - Category 8
The Cove Atlantis - Category 9

Apparently, you cannot redeem points for a stay at The Reef Atlantis, but you can earn points on a paid stay there.

Points are earned for room rate only. No points on incidental spend.

Platinum Arrival Gift (PAG) is 500pts or food/drink amenity.

$20 internet fee is NOT waived for Gold/Plats per Marriott's T&Cs.

For rooms that will have more than two people aged twelve or over, there is an "additional adult charge" per person.

"For clarification purposes, the daily charge is not a resort fee. The additional charges associated with the stay currently include mandatory gratuities and a utility service fee per person per day. The amount can vary by unit type by building. These additional charges have always been in place at Atlantis."

ADDITIONAL CHARGES:

Guests of Atlantis, Harborside Resort, The Cove and The Reef Atlantis are subject to an 20% charge per night that includes taxes, the Paradise Island Tourism and Development Association levy, the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board levy and compensation for servicing your reservation. In addition, guests will be required to pay a mandatory gratuity and utility service fee of (i) up to $25.95 per person per day depending on unit type for Atlantis guests, (ii) up to $20.70 per person per day depending on unit type for Harborside Resort guests, and (iii) up to $65.95 per person per day depending on unit type for The Cove or The Reef Atlantis guests. If you purchase a pre-paid package these charges are already included in your package price. If you do not purchase a pre-paid package, these charges will be assessed upon check out at the property. Please be advised that all mandatory gratuities, taxes, levies and service fees are subject to change.

As of 01-Jan-2015, in addition to the previous 20% tax on room rate and purchases, there is an additional VAT of 7.5%, making a total tax on room rate and purchases of 27.5%. This also applies to additional adult fees (for more than two person ages 12 and older staying in the same room), but does not apply to the mandatory gratuity and utility fees.

Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas participates in Marriott Rewards as follows:
- Points or Miles may be earned for reservations booked through www.marriott.com/atlantis or by calling 1-855-696-4732.
- Points or Miles will not be earned and Points cannot be redeemed for reservations booked through Atlantis Paradise Vacations, Atlantis.com, or AtlantisBahamas.com.
- Points may be redeemed for stays only by calling 1-855-696-4732. At this time, redemption stays cannot be booked online.

Usually Autograph Collections are smaller, boutique hotels (well, other than the Cosmo). The Atlantis has 3,400 rooms, so a bit surprised they put it under the Autograph brand vs. Marriott or Ren.

From the article: "The property is expected to officially join the Autograph Collection in the fall."

Cheers.

this will be the largest hotel in the system

By going with AC it leaves the owner/operator much more operational leeway on how to run their hotel - just think of the phyiscal and operational changes that would have to occur for the hotel to become a Renaissance or Marriott

Wow, that's quite a coup. I wonder of the Dubai property will follow soon. And the newly announced property in Sanya China. They're pretty tightly linked.

They have such a wide range of rooms, I wonder if they'll offer different buildings at different award levels.

Is it that hard to write breakfast instead of the god-awful "brekkie" when you are writing three sentences instead of just a short one sentence?

Is it that hard to stay on-topic vs. sidetracking it with a spelling debate?

BTW - countdown 'til we get the first FTer asking when s/he can book the property

Cheers.

I don't think so. Apparently as part of a debt restructuring a few years ago the Bahamas property was turned over to a Brookfield fund... whereas the Dubai property went to a unit of Dubai World.
