Marriott RewardsPlus Hotel+Air best use
« on: August 12, 2015, 08:35:42 PM »
Haven't seen a thread about this

I have about 290K points from the last ritz offer. it would seem the RewardsPlus Hotel+Air is the best option.

Am i understanding correctly that with this promotion https://secure.unitedmileageplus.com/reg/PTM2015/index.html we will get 20% extra on any option?  so for the 7 Nights + 132,000 miles we will get 158,400 united miles?

Also does anyone know if the 7 nights can must be used on one stay or can be split up?

Points transferred from Marriott to southwest would count towards companion pass status.

Thanks I probably will.  How about the hotel nights, can anyone point me in the best direction to use them? For example was thinking of Maldives, does Marriott have a property there
