Tickets for the ATP tennis tournament at the O2 Arena in London next month have appeared on the Marriott Bonvoy site.

This is the traditional ‘end of season’ event where the top ranked players play for the notional title of ‘annual champion’.  London has lost the rights to hold this tournament from 2021 – it will be moving to Turin – so this is one of your last chances to see it.

There were 89 packages left as of last night.  Running from 10th to 17th November, you can pick from:

  • day or evening packages
  • ‘buy it now’ or auction packages
  • ticket only or ‘ticket and hotel’ packages

All tickets are for the Marriott Moments suite which we have reviewed various times in the past, eg here.  It is fully catered with a hot buffet and an open bar.  It is on Level 3 so you are quite high up – you can see the suites in the picture below.

Packages start from 75,000 points for two tickets.  I value a Marriott Bonvoy point at 0.5p when used for a hotel room, so you are giving up £375+ of free nights by redeeming for this.  I personally think this is a little high but let’s see how they go.

It is worth noting that Emirates Skywards will also be offering tickets to this tournament in return for miles, although the packages are not up yet.  Last year it was 7,500 miles for a standard ticket and 25,000 miles for a VIP hospitality ticket.

The Marriott Moments packages can be found here.

    Anna- I have just returned from the Hilton dalaman and I had been meaning to ask the hotel directly about points redemptions with all inclusive but we had some service issues and I didn’t really want to come across as interested to stay again in future! But I did speak to a couple who were on a redemption stay and they said the points needed is diff for 1 person vs 2 on AI. the only justification I can think is to account for the AI concept?
    Sorry not much help probably!

    Amex Shop Small:
    I haven’t received an email or the offer on any of my cards yet. Can anyone tell me what period the offer is running for?

  • Mike says:

    OT on the Hilton post, if you use points and cash, do you still get Honors points and nights credited?
