Marriott Shuffles Hotel Redemption Categories Effective March 8

Loyalty Traveler details Marriott’s moving around hotels amongst various redemption categories. Bottom-line appears to be not bad at all.

Approximately 350 hotels will decrease by one category and approximately 300 hotels will increase by one category. Ninety-five percent of the hotels changing categories are in categories 1-5.

And clearly more hotels are moving down than up in categories 6, 7, and 8.
