5 Ways Marriott Bonvoy Rewards Makes Family Travel Easy

Planning an awesome, memorable vacation for your family is no big deal—said no parent ever! From where to stay to what to do, a lot of hard work goes into bringing a great trip to life.

When you’re a Marriott Bonvoy Rewards member, there are plenty of benefits that help you plan (and enjoy!) with ease.

1. So many hotels, so many options.

The Marriott Bonvoy hotel loyalty rewards program includes 30 brands around the world and across varying price points—everything from luxury resorts to budget-friendly hotels. Whether you want to stay at a Ritz Carlton or a Residence Inn, there’s a property (among 7,000+!) to meet your family’s unique needs and budget.

2. The more you stay, the more perks you get!

Anyone can sign up for free to join the Marriott Bonvoy program. With your membership, you’ll get to book your stay at an exclusive, discounted member rate, which is always a good way to kickstart a vacation. The more often you stay at a Marriott Bonvoy hotel, the more points you’ll earn toward free nights, and the higher you’ll move up the ranks to different “elite tiers.” Each tier has different levels of benefits that unlock amazing perks—like mobile check-ins, extra rewards points, enhanced free Wi-Fi, late checkouts, free breakfasts, and guaranteed room types. The happiness you’ll feel about these perks is pretty similar to the joy your kiddos feel as they zip down water slides at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, am I right?

Pro tip: If you travel a lot for work, be sure to stay at a Marriott property when possible, so you can reap the points to use on family vacations!

3. There’s room to… go!

From San Diego to Miami Beach, Yellowstone to Montreal, there are so many awe-inspiring destinations to choose from. So, consider your hotel room your launch pad for adventure. Depending upon availability and your membership status, Marriott Bonvoy members can enjoy room upgrades that make a family trip extra special. A Courtyard suite overlooking the fireworks at Disneyland? Yes, please! A room with a balcony and an ocean view? Done and done! Better yet, if for any reason your reservation cannot be honored, the Ultimate Reservation Guarantee pays for a nearby stay and you’ll be compensated for the inconvenience.

4. See the sights on cool tours and excursions

Marriott’s collection of amazing local experiences are fun for the whole family. From surf lessons to sailing expeditions to history tours, there’s no better way for your crew to explore your destination together. And you’ll earn more rewards points by booking!

5. Two words: kids' clubs

Let’s be real. Even on the best family vacation, parents could benefit from the chance to unwind and get a break from fielding snack requests. Many Marriott resorts offer kids' clubs where you can drop your children off for some much-needed TLC or beach time.

Here’s the best part about being a Marriott Bonvoy member: On your current vacation, you’ll be earning points for the next one! Rack up bonus points on eligible hotel purchases, including the room rate, spa, and dining. Yep, Bonvoy rewards are the gift that keeps on giving. Families love knowing their vacation is paving the way for more great times at more great destinations.
