Use Points for Room Upgrades[Back]

When you choose to redeem points for a hotel stay, you may upgrade to a room with a preferred view or to a larger suite for an additional 5,000 points per night – or by making a direct payment if permitted by the hotel. This benefit is available at The Ritz-Carlton hotels and at participating Marriott brand hotels and resorts. Please note that you cannot use upgrade rewards to upgrade a paid room.

When you choose to upgrade, a minimum of one upgrade reward is required for each night in an upgraded room, in addition to your regular hotel reward. Two upgrade rewards are required at most of
The Ritz-Carlton hotels and selected Marriott locations.

Point Upgrades

Upgrade rewards are available for 5,000 points each. Two upgrades rewards are required at most of
The Ritz-Carlton hotels and selected Marriott brand locations. Some rooms only require one upgrade reward per night. This requirement is based on the view or room type. Availability may vary by hotel.

Paid Upgrades

At select hotels you can pay for an upgrade on a cost per night basis. The specific price varies by hotel and will be charged to your room during your stay. No Rewards points are involved with paid upgrades.

How to upgrade

For example, after booking a standard room for 150,000 points, here are three upgrade scenarios:

Point Upgrade
Upgraded Room Points/Cost
3 nights at a
Tier 3 property
Mountain view room 150,000 points +
(5,000 points x 3 nights) =
150,000 + 15,000 =
165,000 points

Point Upgrade — Four Upgrade Rewards/Night
Upgraded Room Points/Cost
3 nights at a
Tier 3 property
Ocean view room 150,000 points +
(20,000 points x 3 nights) =
150,000 + 60,000 =
210,000 points

Point Upgrade — $40 Cost/Night
Upgraded Room Points/Cost
3 nights at a
Tier 3 property
Coastal view room 150,000 points +
($40* x 3 nights) =
150,000 points + $120

*This is just an example. Each hotel determines the specific cost at that property.
