Marriott points are worth 1 cent each, on average. That means 10,000 Marriott points have a value of about $100. Plus, Marriott points are worth about the same amount as the average hotel points, which are worth roughly 0.95 cents each.
It’s important to remember that the value of Marriott points depends on how they are redeemed. They have the most value when used for Marriott Bonvoy hotel reservations. You can easily calculate the value of Marriott points for any redemption method, though.
How to Earn More Marriott Points
One of the best ways to increase the number of Marriott points that you earn is to apply for a Marriott credit card. That can also help you reach a higher status tier in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, further boosting your earning potential.
