Ritz Carlton Benefit With American Express – Upgrades, Credits And Free Breakfast

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

If you don’t have an American Express card, here is another great reason to apply, free breakfast and upgrades at Ritz Carlton hotels.  Mrs. Weeklyflyer is a big fan of any Ritz Carlton and it is not easy to get status upgrades at the Ritz.  So, I take advantage of any benefit I can get and use my Amex when I pay for stays at the Ritz Carlton to maximize the stay.

If you are interested in a Starwood Preferred American Express credit card you can see the details of the current bonus offer in my previous post through this link.

How To Get The Promotion

Promotion Details

Make a reservation with any American Express Card and receive a room upgrade plus valuable hotel credits that can be used for dining, spa services and much more.  Also enjoy daily American breakfast for two and a destination experience once per stay.  The package details varies by the location that you choose.

Look to book at Ritz Carlton with your Amex card and get fantastic upgrades and free breakfast!  As you know breakfast for 2 at any Ritz will likley run you $100!

Participating Hotels

Bottom Line

The American Express rate clearly moves the price up by $75 per night. But it provides a $100 resort credit per night. In addition, it will provide an upgrade to a Deluxe room which goes for $60 more than the regular coastal view room not to mention breakfast every morning.  So net, this is a $85 benefit over using a standard rate, plus breakfast!

    Most Ritz Carlton are on FHR if you have a platinum and you get the same benes at the regular rate. For instance, I have a FHR res at the Abona in Tenerife for 198 EUR that includes upgrade, breakfast, and 85EUR credit. The AMEX package rate on this promo was 273EUR.

    If a reservation is made through FHR, we won’t be able to be upgraded to Club Leval (i.e., three times per year). Is this correct? Thanks.

    what is “FHR”?

    Just curious, I have a travelocity american express card, will I get the same benefits you mentioned in the post at Ritz-Carlton? I know that the Ritz-Carlton site says I will get the special perk if the booking is made via “Any American Express Card”, I guess I could argue that my Travelocity American Express card falls into the “Any American Express card” category if they really meant the AMEX card issued by American Express?
