Book Tier 7 Awards With Tier 6 Pricing!
Marriott has let us know that we can book level 7 Starwood properties at level 6 point redemption levels between August and December 2018. For ease of discussion, let’s talk Starwood points. This means that a property that currently costs 35,000 points will cost 20,000 points during that window. Marriott equivalents are 105,000 and 60,000.
Here is a list of the category 7 properties.
Category 7 consists of Starwood’s uber hotels and resorts offering awe-inspiring surroundings in some of the world’s most spectacular destinations. Depending on the season, you will need 30,000 or 35,000 Starpoints® per night for a free night in a standard room at a Category 7 hotel.
This is a great deal for those heavy in points looking to book at one of these amazing properties for less!
