Marriott Bonvoy has brought back ‘Week of Wonders’, giving you seven days of offers and promotions to get you back in the mood for travel.

We are looking at our pick of the ‘Week of Wonders’ offers over a number of articles this week. To see the full selection of offers, you should visit the ‘Week of Wonders’ website here.

If you are planning a luxury hotel stay this Winter, the most attractive part of ‘Week of Wonders’ may be the offer outlined in this article. You can get up to $300 hotel credit on your next stay.

The offer is outlined in detail on this page of

Marriott Week of Wonders

Receive up to $300 of hotel folio credit

You can receive up to $300 to spend in your hotel when you book selected luxury hotels by 14th October.

It is valid at the following brands outside North America:

  • The Ritz Carlton
  • St Regis
  • Edition

In the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, Middle East, and Africa, this offer is available seven days per week as long as you stay at least two nights. Different rules apply in other regions – see here for full terms

You will receive up to $300 of hotel credit if you are a Marriott Bonvoy member (which you almost certainly are if you are reading this) and up to $200 if you are not. If you’re not, clearly signing up to Marriott Bonvoy for free before you book would be lucrative ….

You need to book between 7th-14th October for stays up to 17 January 2022.

You need to pre-pay your booking BUT you can cancel for a full refund. The exact number of days notice required – usually 1-3 days before arrival – will be shown during the booking process.

The credit is NOT valid against your room bill, which will be pre-paid anyway, but is valid against food and drink in the hotel and, depending on property, spa and other incidentals.

Here’s an example

Penha Longa in Portugal is a The Ritz Carlton managed hotel which Rhys reviewed here. A picture of the golf course is below.

A 2-night stay in late October comes out at €598 but includes a $75 hotel credit, which is a decent rebate.

The cancellation policy here is 1 day before arrival to receive a full refund.

Looking for ideas?

Here are links to some of our The Ritz Carlton, St Regis and EDITION hotel reviews from the last few years to give you some ideas for a Winter break (OK, Kyoto is unlikely but it is an amazing hotel and worth bookmarking for 2022):

St Regis Mardavall in Mallorca is not included due to its Winter closure.

This offer will stack with other Marriott Bonvoy promotions

Don’t forget the other Marriott Bonvoy offers currently running, which will stack with this:

  • 2,000 bonus points on your next Bonvoy stay until 21st November if you hold a Marriott Bonvoy credit card (article here, register here)
  • £100 cashback if you spend £400 by 31st December at selected Marriott Bonvoy luxury hotels if you are targeted for the current UK American Express cashback promotion. In theory this offer is based on check-out spend but will usually trigger on pre-paid stays too.

Put all these together and you could have a very lucrative stay.

You can find out more about the other ‘Week of Wonders’ offers on the Marriott website here.

  • Martin says:

    The rates attached to this offer seem to be significantly higher than the member rates e.g St Regis Dubai Downtown in December is this your understanding?

    • Rob says:

      Penha Longha was not more expensive, adjusting for different cancellation terms, but it wouldn’t surprise me at certain places if a hotel is discounting heavily from its standard rate.

      You’d expect a 24 hour cancellation room to be pricier than a non-refundable or 7/14 day cancellation booking.

  • Martin says:

    Also the hotel is only offering $200 despite looking to book through the App

  • Marko Gec says:

    Hi Rob

    I tried to book the St. Regis The Palm Dubai with the promotion but it says only 75$ in credit. Tried to book via Marriott App

    • Marko says:

      I couldn’t find in the terms&conditions how they specify the “up to 300$”

      • Rob says:

        Neither could I – I am guessing there are some properties, somewhere, which throw up $300 but I didn’t find one. Whether the value of the rebate also adjusts by stay length I don’t know.

  • Crafty says:

    Week of Wondering what the deal actually is?

  • Rolf says:

    I have a question regarding the 2000 points Marriott Bonvoy credit card offer. The terms and conditions specify “consecutive nights of which one night needs to be a paid night”. Does that mean that you need to stay for two nights minimum to qualify for the 2000 points?
    Any idea?

    • MinR says:

      Hyatt has the ‘pay my way’ feature on the mobile app that lets you pay using different methods (points or cash) for each night on a multiple nights reservation.

  • Sam G says:

    Had a quick look Barcelona but FHR or maybe Emyr is a better deal IMO as they’ll include breakfast & a credit & potential upgrade etc. A Platinum at St Regis etc may find it better value as they’ll get the breakfast included via status

    Also noticed what a couple of others are saying – check the hotels own rates, some have their own deals on with credits that are much cheaper

  • Safety Card says:

    Interesting pricing looking at this for Budapest RC. Prepay and save rate (refundable up to 7 days before) 830 total including breakfast, escape to luxury rate (still pre-paying in advance, but refundable and $200 credit) 1154 with no breakfast included. Doesn’t quite seem like the best deal to me. That extra 6 days of cancellation time is really costly!

  • ankomonkey says:

    Apologies in advance for the often asked question – if I take out the Marriott Amex, how long does it take for the 15 nights to hit my account?
