Save 30% at Marriott Bonvoy Boutiques – what can you get?

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Marriott Bonvoy is currently running a ‘Week of Wonders’. HfP has teamed up with Marriott to run a week (actually 9 days) of promotions, competitions and offers as part of this.

The competitions start on Monday, so make sure to check HfP. Each one closes at midnight on the day it launches.

Today’s theme is ‘Wonders of Comfort’. As part of Week of Wonders, there is a 30% discount running at Marriott Bonvoy Boutiques.

Marriott WoW

To be honest, we weren’t really sure what the Boutiques were and what they offered, but when Marriott Bonvoy suggested we try out some of the products, we thought it could be fun. So, prepare yourself for Head for Points very first beauty product review!

(Actually, Rhys did give some beauty product tips previously in his ‘How I survived a 24 hour flight to Australia in Economy!’ article at the beginning of the year, but we promise there are no scary face mask pictures this time.)

First off, let’s explain the concept of Marriott Bonvoy Boutiques. Marriott Bonvoy Boutiques allow you to buy exclusive products usually found in Marriott International hotels.

This doesn’t just mean fancy toiletries. That said, if you’ve not bought shower gel or shampoo for the last decade because you always take half-empty bottles from hotels, you may appreciate the chance to stock up on the products you love.

There is a surprisingly large array of merchandise on offer, from unique luggage to interior design features. Had the best night’s sleep of your life at a W Hotel? You can now recreate that experience at home by buying everything from the bed linen to the mattress.

13 of the Marriott International hotel brands have Boutiques, including The Edition, Ritz-Carlton, W Hotels, St Regis and Renaissance.

To trial the Marriott Bonvoy Boutique experience, Rob, Rhys and myself were each sent a tailored selection of products. Rob, being the sophisticated gent that he is, was aptly sent a selection of St Regis pieces. Befitting a fashionable young chap, Rhys was sent some W Hotel goodies and I received some lovely Renaissance products.

St Regis Boutique

Rob’s pack included St Regis’ signature Laboratoire Remède Hair Care Set (shampoo and conditioner) and Laboratoire Remède cleansing Body Bar. Those familiar with staying at St Regis hotels will almost certainly recognise these, as they are found in all of the hotels.

Rob decided that his daughter was a better tester of these products! Rob’s daughter has long hair and found the shampoo and conditioner set (€54.60 in the sale) very rich and effective. The mint / citrus scent was not at all overpowering.

Regular St Regis visitors will know that the shampoo comes in an interesting shade of green, but don’t let that put you off!

In addition to these toiletries, the St Regis Boutique parcel also contained a beautiful Frette 1860 velour robe, slippers and eye mask. If you are feeling particularly generous, these would make a lovely gift to a luxury-loving friend.

Using the 30% Marriott Bonvoy member discount currently running, the robe can be purchased for €153.30. The slippers were also very comfortable and soft and available for a much more affordable €23.80.

As well as trialling the hair products, Rob’s daughter also kindly modelled the robe for us. ‘Model wears an XL’ as they say on the fashion websites, although to put that in perspective she is 5 foot 10 inches.

W Hotels The Store

I (Rhys) received a collection of W hotel toiletries and grey trim hooded robe.

The toiletries included a set of MOMO shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. This the new brand that W hotels have been using since the end of 2019. The set was complemented by ‘skin regimen’ cleansing face wash and body lotion.

I love the look of the MOMO products, and they come in very convenient 100ml bottles. I will be keeping these as a travel set for when I’m not staying in hotels.

I really liked the scent, which is light and fresh. I didn’t recognise it but from the bottle it looks like it is yellow melon. I’m not a huge fan of (eating) melons so I’m pleased it didn’t smell ‘melony’!

(Sinead’s note: Perhaps Rhys should stick to writing about aircraft and hotels …..)

The shower gel lathered really well despite our hard London water – much better than my usual shower gel. The shampoo and conditioner seemed to do the job too.

I also tried the Skin Regimen cleansing face wash. It was amazingly creamy and felt great – I’ll definitely be using this again!

After all that, I nipped into my lovely W gown. This is a double layered gown which looks fairly standard on the outside but is lined with the softest material ever. It’s very, very comfortable and long as well which you don’t always get at 6’2″!

All W Hotels The Store products also have 30% off for Marriott Bonvoy members.

Collect Renaissance

I (Sinead) was delighted to try some Renaissance hotel products, particularly as unbeknownst to our friends at Marriott Bonvoy, I had just returned from a stay at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel to celebrate my wedding anniversary and had loved it there.

My Marriott Bonvoy Boutique parcel was a little different to Rob and Rhys. Rather than toiletries, I got the opportunity to trial a lovely scented room diffuser and luxurious sofa ‘throw’.

The scented room diffuser is a plug-in machine that gently dispenses a scent which diffuses throughout the air. I loved the scent of the diffuser – Shiso Tea – which is apparently is “shiso tea leaf and citrus, with notes of white mint, tuberose, gardenia and lily” and it really did take me back to my stay at the St. Pancras Renaissance.

The scent filled my whole (admittedly small) house and even with it switched off, it leaves a scent in the room I’ve placed it.

I am delighted with the aptly named ‘Hygge’ throw, a large knitted blanket that has taken up residence on my sofa and is a cosy cover for these cooler autumn evenings. It’s stylish but not imposing and genuinely useful.

Looking at the Collect Renaissance shopping site, there’s a real range available including some beautiful bed linens, and a quirky vase that I thought would be a nice gift. Again, everything is available with 30% off for Marriott Bonvoy members, but only for the duration of the Week of Wonders.

In conclusion …..

Whilst buying an entirely new bed isn’t going to be top of many reader’s agendas, I did discover some really great ideas for gifts and home décor in the Marriott Bonvoy Boutiques. If I was going to splurge on new bed linens, I’d be very tempted by some of those available through the Boutiques, especially if I’ve stayed in that hotel brand and found the bedding comfy.

The 30% discount currently running is very appealing and does appear to be found on most products, although it is based on availability.

If nothing else, you can recreate a favourite hotel stay of the past from your own home and look forward to hopefully better travelling days ahead.

Many thanks to Marriott Bonvoy for our products.

    I wonder if Malmaison sell their lobby fragrance

  • Andrew says:

    The prices, even with the discount are very steep. And a very high delivery charge too – and you have to order from each hotel boutique separately rather than a robe from St Regis and shower gel from W all on one order. I’ve looked at the boutique before when they’ve run promotions and even with my deep pockets I’ve had to pass.

      We’re in the market for a new mattress and have enjoyed Heavenly beds in our travels. I had no idea each brand had ‘exclusive’ beds at different prices. Or that W Hotels don’t offer the discount on their ‘exclusive’ mattress.

      In any case, there’s not enough information on the products when spending 1,500-3,000 Euros for our size mattress.

  • ChrisW says:

    €150 for a discounted bathrobe!

    • Lady London says:

      Frette bathrobes could cost a few times that if bought in regular retail. That one looked great. Even in decent hotels robes are often ‘skimped’ – too short, too thin material, not soft, non-shawl collar and no hood either, belt not substantial enough for the weight of the robe, etc.

      I would really like one but not feeling like doing 150+shipping right now.

      A more preferable solution is the few times a pricelist for the items in the room is discreetly placed in the closet – with a decent discount and the robe in my hand as well, I’m more likely to put it on the hotel bill.

  • RussellH says:

    I agree with Rhys!
    (I find the smell of melon quite unpleasant.)

    • Nick says:

      My melon hierarchy:
      Gala – very yum
      Water – also yum
      Cantaloupe – not yum
      Honeydew – why does this even exist?

      If covid is still causing disruption to travel we could have a ‘head for fruits’ edition for a while!

  • cinereus says:

    No surprises that the “wonders” aren’t all that.

  • marcw says:

    I guess the only worthy thing to buy would have been the St. Regis Bloody Mary book. Oh! Surprise! Out of stock!

    Alternatively, you may fancy buying Valentine NYC Thong.

  • Andrew says:

    The article makes it sound like this is a HFP organised week of promos and yet TLFL are also running the same ones each day.

    • Rob says:

      All of the features and, from Monday, the competitions are exclusive to us. No-one else got a free bath robe 🙂
