Marriott is offering 10,000 Marriott Rewards bonus points when you stay in the City of Light.
Two nights are required in order to receive the 10,000 point bonus, and the stays can be any time between July 10 and September 10, 2017.
Bookings must be made by September 3, 2017, and include free Wifi.
Here are the hotels participating in the offer, along with booking links –

Use promotional code M41 when booking.
If flat out purchasing 10,000 Marriott Rewards points the cost is 1.25 cents each ($12.50 per 1000 points), coming out to 125 USD. Looking at a random midweek date for the Paris Marriott Champs Elysees Hotel, the promotional rate came to 569 EUR per night (about 640 USD).
Taking the best available rate of 499 EUR, the difference between the two rates is 70 EUR, or about 78 USD right now. With two nights, you’d be paying about 156 USD, 31 USD higher than if you bought the 10,000 points without the stay.
I wouldn’t go out of my way to stay here to get the points, but if you are planning on staying anyhow this is a nice bonus.
What I especially like about this promotion is that the rates are not advance purchase and are fully refundable if your plans change.
