We greatly appreciate when you click on any of our hotel links or ads and book a stay directly with Marriott, Ritz or Starwood!
Marriott completed its acquisition of Starwood in 2016 and the result for Marriott, Ritz Carlton Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest members is exceptional. While the loyalty programs are not expected to officially merge before 2018, Marriott has implemented an excellent start to the marriage!
See how the other half earns! Simply link your Marriott or Ritz Carlton Rewards account to your Starwood Preferred Guest account and Marriott will match your current Elite status, whichever is higher, and enjoy your status across over 5,700 hotels in 110 countries!
Once your accounts are linked you can easily transfer points between programs. Three Marriott and Ritz Carlton Rewards points will equal one Starwood Preferred Guest point, which is a fair conversion. At trvlvip we value Starwood points at three times the value of a Marriott or Ritz Carlton Reward point as it requires about 1/3 the points for a free night at a Starwood versus Marriott hotel.
Link your accounts today and receive an instant Elite status match and the freedom to transfer your rewards points across both programs! While the loyalty programs are not expected to officially merge before 2018, this is an excellent start to the marriage!
