Marriott Bonvoy has released a new batch of tickets for its box at the O2 Arena in London.

If you’ve never been, this is a great way to see a concert – or at least it is about as good as you can get in the aircraft hangar that is the O2.

I finally got to visit the new suite – it moved during the pandemic – last week, along with some HfP readers, and I can confirm that you are now nearer the stage than you were. The drinks and ‘comfort food’ hot buffet were also good.

The real value of the suite is the ability to wander in and out at will. Dull song comes along? There is no problem nipping out to the loo or crashing out on a sofa to check your emails!

Here are the new concerts you can book:

  • (SOLD OUT) Disney 100: The Concert, 4th June – 30,000 points for two
  • Roger Waters, 6th June and 7th June – 50,000 points for two
  • Peter Gabriel, 19th June – 40,000 points for two
  • The Black Keys, 21st June – 40,000 points for two

You can redeem your Marriott Bonvoy points on this page of the Marriott site.

    Just to mention, the Roger Waters tickets are 50K points, not 40K.

    I see that the bidding for the annual Monaco Grand Prix package, with an overnight stay on the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team Yacht, is going well, currently at 2,102,500 points!

  • Michael C says:

    Please tell Lana del Rey to get her @ss over here – or tell Marriott to sell Glastonbury tickets! ;o)))

    • MT says:

      While not directly linked, I remember when SPG used to be heavily involved in what is now BST. They ran some great events and would be great if Marriott would get more into these things and get rid of Accor. It doesn’t seem Marriott quite see music as a way to premote things in the same way some companies do. I half expected them to drop the O2 suite after Covid, so am pleased they haven’t.

    • MT says:

      On this I believe Lana del Ray is doing BST on the 9th July, so another chance for tickets!

  • Jordan D says:

    Bought tickets to another of the Elton nights, and have to say the food and beverage offering has markedly declined in quality since the Stereophonic in March 2020.

    This isn’t due to the venue changing offering – a wander past the open doors of other suits showed that premium food offerings were available – so this is clearly a decision by Marriott.

    Obviously the food/drink isn’t the primary reason for going to the Suite, but it does make up a large part of the ticket package.

      I went to Ed Sheeran and there wasn’t any dessert!

    • Rhys says:

      Seemed very similar to what I had pre-covid. I agree, it is the weakest part.

      • MT says:

        I can confirm it very much depends what “package” the Suite picks and how many they order catering for, if the bar stools are taken, but they dont “cater for them” then things can become tight.

        The Amex Suite has been trying to decide what they want to do for years. It has gone from free flow Champagne and some small nibbles, the open bar and no food, 2 glasses of alchol and food to the current offering of a welcome glass of champagne and a good buffett. The issue they have had is when you buy the tickets they tell you what the package is, so depending when the tickets were bought they still have different offerings. Elton John was totallly different to Ed Sheeran for instance. It comes down to cost and all suites have a certain number of packages to choose from and they pay the O2 a fixed amount depending on which, but those prices have been increasing considerably.

    • StanTheMan says:

      We were there for Elton John last Thursday. The food is very poor. Would have been better to order something on deliveroo from one of the restaurants in the 02 downstairs.

      Shame, because it has such potential, and the staff working are a delight.

    • Track says:

      You have to pay for a burger/pizza junk food.

      Only shared buffet is free, weird food.

  • Alex W says:

    Still waiting for blink-182 then… general sale sold out in seconds!

  • Jordan D says:

    Happy to share with you photos of what Mar 2020 looked like! Last week was a cornucopia of biege, compared with 3yrs ago!

    (Maybe they saved the premium food for the HfP box night!)

    • Rhys says:

      To be fair, this was my first time in the Marriott box – but seemed very similar, food-wise to Virgin 3 years ago.

  • Rob A says:

    I was very disappointed that when I went to Elton the box opened 30mins late. All suite holders were packed into the Amex lounge.

    I complained to Marriott but they said as it was down to the arena they wouldn’t be reimbursing any points.

  • mart says:

    My Daughter just redeemed 20k virgin points for someone called Post Malone at the AO arena Manchester she seemed happy anyway
