The key to maximizing the number of free nights you get with your Marriott Bonvoy Points is to redeem them for hotels in the lowest categories: that gives you more nights for the same number of points. So here’s a very useful map of every one of the 7,000+ Marriott hotels, sortable by category.
Whether you already have a stash of Marriott Points (or now-renamed SPG Points) or are considering the new Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card to earn 50,000 Points, getting to know the Marriott categories is vital to stretching your points.
You should read our article about How To Use Marriott Bonvoy Points To Maximize Their Value to save yourself a lot of time.
An American blogger created a very useful map of all Marriott Hotels, sortable by category.
We want to share it to help you out until we create our very own, because this one has a few (rare) inaccuracies unfortunately, so always double-check on Marriott’s website before finalizing plans just to be safe (but it’s fine in 99% of cases).
Map Of All Marriott Hotels By Category
Without further ado, here is the map (categories will change on March 4th 2020, we’ll update when that takes effect).
I’ll share tips to use this map, but first, as a reminder, here is the Marriott Bonvoy Award Chart:
Now, ideally, you should zoom in on a specific area or sort that map using the layers on the left of the screen (as shown below) to make this busy map just a bit easier to navigate, depending on what you want to see.
For example, you will be able to see only Category 1 hotels, those where you can get 8 completely free nights thanks to the Marriott Bonvoy American Express‘ Welcome Bonus.
And most importantly, if you want to avoid a bit of research or get inspired, we’ve spotted some good ones for you. You can see the 35 Best Marriott Category 1 Hotels for the most free nights and will also soon share the 35 Best Marriott Category 5 Hotels for your annual free night certificate.
We’re also doing the same thing for Category 2 hotels, so subscribe to our new free travel rewards newsletter for plenty of tips!
This is a very useful map to plan out your free travel strategy and chose the destinations where you can get as many free hotel nights as possible thanks to your Marriott Bonvoy Points.
