Frequently Asked Questions

“Protea Hotels will participate in Marriott Rewards sometime in 2015 after some necessary system upgrades. Until then, Rewards members are unable to earn Elite benefits, Elite nights, points or airlines miles for stays made prior to then.”

1. Is Protea Hotels participating in Marriott Rewards?

We look forward to Protea Hotels’ participation in Marriott Rewards sometime in 2015. To ensure we are able to appropriately recognize and reward your loyalty, we need time to implement the necessary system upgrades in order to provide the excellent service delivery and smooth check-in processes you are accustomed to.

2. Will I be awarded stays and points retroactively prior to the official program participation?

No, members who had stays made before the brand fully participates in Marriott Rewards will not earn points, miles or nights retroactively.

3. When is the official date when I can begin earning night and stay credit for my stays?

At this time, an official date has not been determined. Marriott Rewards members and members of our partner program, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards, will be notified through our Marriott Rewards and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards communication channels, including: Insiders, email notification, marriottrewards.com and ritzcarltonrewards.com. Sometime in 2015, members will be able to earn points, miles, Elite nights, Elite benefits, and redeem points for free night stays at that time going forward.

4. Will I, as an Elite member, receive any of my Elite benefits from the program during my stays prior to Protea Hotels joining the program sometime in 2015?

No, until Protea Hotels officially join Marriott Rewards sometime in 2015, members will not receive Elite level benefits they normally receive at participating brands. This includes, but is not limited to: Gold & Platinum free internet access and complimentary guest room upgrades.

5. When will I be able to redeem my points for a free stay at Protea Hotels?

Until Protea Hotels become a fully participating brand sometime in 2015, members will be unable to redeem points for a stay at Protea Hotels.

6. When Protea Hotels become a fully participating brand in Marriott Rewards, will I as a member of The Ritz-Carlton Rewards also earn points, miles, Elite nights, and Elite benefits at that time?

Yes, due to the program partnership between Marriott Rewards and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards, members of both programs will be able to earn and redeem points and receive the appropriate Elite benefits when Protea Hotels become a fully participating brand in Marriott Rewards sometime in 2015.
