Marriott Bonvoy members earn 10 points per $1 spent on stays at most Marriott properties. A $100 hotel stay earns 1,000 Marriott points, for example. There are some exceptions to this rate, however. Members earn 5 points per $1 spent during stays at Element, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites properties. Plus, staying at Marriott Executive Apartments and Execustay will earn you 2.5 points per $1 spent and one elite night credit for every three nights stayed.
You can earn even more points per night if you have Marriott Bonvoy Elite status. The higher the status tier, the more bonus points you earn.
Marriott rewards points earned per night by status tier:
Members: 10 points per $1 spent
Silver Elite: 11 points per $1 spent
Gold Elite: 12.5 points per $1 spent
Platinum Elite: 15 points per $1 spent
Titanium Elite: 17.5 points per $1 spent
Ambassador Elite: 17.5 points per $1 spent
Those earning rates apply to most Marriott Bonvoy brands. It's also worth noting that Bonvoy members don’t just earn points on the cost of a room. You can also earn points on qualifying hotel purchases, such as dining, beverages, rounds of golf, and spa services. And all the points you earn on your stays can be applied to your next Marriott stay – free nights start at 5,000 points.
