You can now see top concerts in Berlin with Marriott and SPG.
We have covered the Starwood suite at the O2 arena in London numerous times. Marriott Rewards / SPG makes tickets in the suite available for top concerts, all of which come with full hospitality. The latest list is here and they make an excellent night out if you are looking to do something different with your points.
Marriott Rewards has recently added a new redemption option – the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin. If you live outside London, going to Berlin for a concert is not much trickier than going to Greenwich and you get to make a short holiday out of it.
There are only a few options available today – Maluma, ELO and BTS – but they come and go (U2 was available recently) and it is worth keeping an eye on the Marriott Moments site.
