To get more free hotel nights for the same amount of Marriott Bonvoy points, the key is to choose hotels in the lowest categories. That’s a great way to maximize their value. All Canadians get easily get 11 completely free nights (or 22 nights with a travel buddy) by planning trips around the 274 Marriott category 1 hotels.

In this post, I’ll share the full list of Marriott category 1 hotels you can choose from around the world.

If you prefer the curated turnkey version, check out the 5 best countries for Marriott category 1 hotels where I just show you the absolute best countries you can plan a trip around, and we’ll have a lot more content about these hotels and destinations soon too (including our recommendations and some itineraries).

Remember that if you want a lot more options, you can instead choose from 1,100 Marriott category 2 hotels in 50+ countries if you don’t mind getting a bit fewer nights (still a pretty great deal).


Marriott basics

As a reminder, right now there are great increased welcome bonuses on the:

Those give you 11 free nights in any of the 274 Marriott category 1 hotels by staying in 5-night increments (because of Marriott’s “Stay for 5, Pay for 4” policy), at least on a majority of dates.

A free night in a Marriott category 1 hotel can only have 3 possible prices:

  • Standard price: 7,500 points (majority of dates)
  • Peak price: 10,000 points
  • Off-Peak price: 5,000 points

So in short, by far the best way to get more free hotel stays is to prioritize staying in Marriott category 1 hotels. You can read our introduction to the Marriott Bonvoy rewards program for more information.

Here are the hotels you can choose from and exactly where they are located.

    This is awesome! Thanks

  2. Gen

    Hi! Great information! What would be the best month to book any of the hotels to achieve 7,000 points? For example, a general search for hotels in Spain next month will show first night from 7,000 points but thereafter is from 22,000 per night. Any tips on how and/or to avail 7,000 poi is throughout extended stays of 15 days for instance? Thank you!

    1. Andrew D'Amours

      In general, as long as there is a “basic” room available you can get it at the 7,500 Points range so that means pretty much year round, I’ve rarely seen rooms not available. But I don’t travel in July/August though, so that’s probably why you saw that issue (it’s not that you can’t in summer, it’s just that you would have needed to book more in advance in this case).
      That said, Peak pricing levels are taking effect Sept. 14th too, which means peak dates will be 10,000 Points and not 7,500 so if you have specific dates, it’s best to book quickly (for example for next summer).

  3. Sylvain La Salle

    Many thanks, very useful list of hotels. In the past, reading one of your info regarding credit cards, I did order the SPG card for hotels and I am going to Africa next month and Italy in September and I will be staying at hotels that I will be using the points.

    Keep up the good work guy, it is very much appreciated 🙂

    1. Andrew D'Amours

      Awesome!!! And thank you for following us! I hope you enjoy those trips and free nights, and know that we will have a lot more Marriott content very soon 🙂
