Room and Hotel Upgrades

Upgrade to a preferred view room or larger suite for points or cash. Available at select Marriott Hotels and Resorts® and 
The Ritz-Carlton® hotels.

Please note: You can use upgrade rewards when you are redeeming points for a hotel stay; you will need an upgrade reward for each night in an upgraded room, in addition to your regular hotel reward. Where available, you may use points to upgrade a cash room by using Instant Redemption at the time of check-in.

Look for specific upgrade details under rate rules when booking your redemption reservation online.

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 Marriott or The Ritz-Carlton Rewards points are involved with paid upgrades.

Point Upgrades

Upgrade rewards are available for 5,000 points each. Most rooms require only one upgrade reward per night. However, some hotels require two or more upgrade rewards per night, depending on the view or room type. Availability varies by hotel.

Some upgrades require payment in local currency and cannot be purchased with Marriott Rewards points. So be sure to check the room description when you book online.

Keep in Mind

  • Upgrade reward offerings vary by hotel and by season.
  • Most rooms require only one upgrade reward per night. However, in some cases, depending on the view or room type, multiple upgrade rewards may be required for each night.
  • Most resorts require upgrade for rooms with special views, such as ocean or bay view. All Residence Inn® and TownePlace Suites® require upgrade for 2-bedroom or penthouse suites. Marriott Vacation Club® International locations require upgrade for 2 and 3-bedroom suites.
