Get 10,000 Marriott Bonvoy points with £100 of food and beverage spend

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

If you have the Marriott Bonvoy American Express credit card (review here), you should see a new offer available via the Amex app or website.

If you spend £100 at selected bars and restaurants in Marriott hotels in London, you will receive a bonus of 10,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

We value a Marriott Bonvoy point at 0.5p, so this is a decent £50 return on your spending. You may also receive 6 points per £1 for your Bonvoy Amex spend if it is treated as hotel spend.

Get 7,500 Marriott Bonvoy points with £100 of food and beverage spend

The wording implies that – because this offer is aimed at non-hotel guests – you won’t receive the 10,000 points if you charge your meal or drinks to your room. This isn’t necessarily the case at all of the restaurants and bars listed, but for safety I would pay separately instead of – if a guest – charging the meal to the room.

Participating restaurants and bars can be found at Marriott County Hall, Marriott Kensington, Marriott Grosvenor Square, Marriott Marble Arch, Sheraton Park Lane, Aloft EXCEL, St Pancras Renaissance and Marriott Canary Wharf.

The offer runs to 16th May. You need to opt-in to register via the Amex website, on the statement page for your Marriott Bonvoy American Express card. Cumulative spend is OK.

    70 Park Ave was 30,000 points as a redemption for every night of the year when it first went on IHG as an unbranded, I managed to get 2 nights in May for £120/nt with bought points, vs cash rates £300+. A few people took advantage and a couple of days later the prices doubled (or more) to reflect the dynamic pricing elsewhere.

    Rip-off amenity charge of $30ish a night which gets pretty much nothing – 2 bottles of water on the first night, free wifi (which is free anyway to members) and use of the gym which looks akin to one in a 2* motel. They don’t even have a restaurant at the moment, so no breakfast for Diamond. And you can’t use a Suite upgrade voucher as they’re ’not integrated into the system’. It’s not the best option overall, unless you got the 30k deal.

    It was a Kimpton before it became an Iberostar in 2016 I believe, so I wonder it will revert to that, or change to a Voco/Indigo or something else.

    New independent properties seem to be dropping into the IHG website at a standard 30k until they’re updated – there’s one that’s converting from a Hampton in Pittsburg which is also at a blanket 30k, which looks like a prison, which the very nice Indogo nearby is only 20k. Bad for ones like Hampton Pittsburg, but great for the higher end hotels if you can catch them.

    • Tiberius says:

      Is there any way to quickly search for these new unbranded properties being added to the IHG site or is a manual search of the destination on semi-regular basis the best approach?

  • Jake says:

    No offer on my Bonvoy card and I’ve got dinner at the Edition booked in 2 weeks 🙁

  • Adam says:

    Any recommendations for any of these Marriott dining places?

  • Michael C says:

    Should also be pointed out that a good deal of the Iberostars are more “self-appointed 4*/5*¨! In their heyday, many were seen as sunny Butlin’s…

  • Ryan says:

    How do you ensure that your Bonvoy account is linked when you pay? Or is that not necessary and the points just hit your Amex card?

  • Lady London says:

    I had a targeted offer from IHG last week – all excited when it said do 4 nights get 40,000 points as IHG’s offers have been miserable for years.

    Then I looked closer and for the 40 000 they wanted 4 nights in Iberostar. So at least IHG are supporting Iberostar incoming

  • Ian says:

    Interested in the ‘outside of Cuba’ point, I’ve unconsciously booked one in Crete but it doesn’t recognise IHG status. Is that likely to change before the summer?

  • Bertster says:

    A quick data point on the Amex / Bonvoy offer. A prepaid reservation at Renaissance St Pancras made on Tuesday has already triggered the 10,000 points. I think I redeemed this, or a similar one, before just through a hotel stay too. No need for F&B spend, at the StP at least.
