Marriott is offering 2,500 bonus points per night from June 11 through August 31, 2014 on Thursday – Sunday at a participating Residence Inn, Courtyard, or TownePlace Suites in Chicago. Since I’m currently based in Chicago, I thought this would be a helpful promo for other locals or those who may be stopping by this summer. (HT: Loyalty Lobby)
Called “Big Bonus Weekends”, you’ll still enjoy the usual free internet, free breakfast for two adults at Courtyard properties, and free breakfast buffet and Residence Inn & SpringHill Suites.
Use promo code M11 when booking, which can be done online or over the phone. Here’s the Marriott promo page.
Note that all participating Courtyard hotels and the Residence Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile require a Friday or Saturday night stay.
Here are the participating properties, along with booking links:
Residence Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile
Courtyard Chicago Downtown/River North
Courtyard Chicago Deerfield
Residence Inn Chicago Deerfield
Courtyard Chicago O’Hare
Courtyard Chicago Highland Park/Northbrook
Courtyard Chicago Lincolnshire
Residence Inn Chicago Lombard
TownePlace Suites Chicago Lombard
Courtyard Chicago Naperville
Courtyard Chicago Oakbrook Terrace
Courtyard Chicago Waukegan/Gurnee
Courtyard Chicago Elgin/West Dundee
TownePlace Suites Chicago Elgin/West Dundee
Testing the random date of June 18, 2014 at the Residence Inn Lombard resulted in a price of $174.
Using the same date, both the regular rate and AAA came out to $159.
I wouldn’t go out of my way for this promotion, but if I was staying at one of these properties anyway I would check the rates to see if the promotional rate was low enough to use to earn the bonus points.
