1,500 Avios with a Marriott ‘UK Weekend Romance’ package

Marriott is offering a bonus of 1,500 Avios points if you book a ‘UK Weekend Romance’ package before Christmas. You can stay as little as one night if you include a Friday or a Saturday.

Full details are here.

Marriott weekend

You will receive:

  • a bottle of champagne in the room
  • breakfast for two each day
  • cocktails for two on one evening
  • late check-out
  • 1,500 bonus Avios per stay

The list of participating properties does not, to be honest, fill me with the mood for romance. You may need that champagne and cocktails if planning a romantic weekend in Bexleyheath, Aberdeen, Gatwick Airport (!), Leicester, Peterborough or Northampton, although there are also some more attractive places included!

  1. has anyone had any luck finding availability on this???

    • Stephen says:

      Not so far – for the amount of time I am spending searching, the deal seems less and less attractive. Perhaps a call to their booking line would be quicker?

  2. What's the Point says:

    Having stayed at the Gatwick Marriott a few times I can say its a very nice hotel. It does very good value park and stay packages.
    It is however certainly not what I would describe as a romantic destination!
    Whoever put this offer together at Marriott must have a sense of humour.
