Off-peak and peak redemption rates were added to the Marriott Bonvoy award chart effective as of Saturday, September 14, 2019; and the standard redemption rates remain.

The award chart for the redemption of Marriott Bonvoy points is as follows:

Category Off-Peak Standard Peak Percentage
1 5,000 7,500 10,000 33.33 percent
2 10,000 12,500 15,000 20.00 percent
3 15,000 17,500 20,000 14.29 percent
4 20,000 25,000 30,000 20.00 percent
5 30,000 35,000 40,000 14.29 percent
6 40,000 50,000 60,000 20.00 percent
7 50,000 60,000 70,000 16.67 percent
8 70,000 85,000 100,000 17.65 percent

Point values are based on a standard room; and may vary by length of stay and hotel category or tier. Point values might be higher at selected locations. Upgrades may be available for additional Marriott Bonvoy points.

The percentage column applies for both off-peak and peak redemption of Marriott Bonvoy points when compared to the standard redemption of Marriott Bonvoy points: for example, 10,000 points for an off-peak award night at a Category 2 hotel property is a 20 percent discount when compared to 12,500 points for a standard award night; while 15,000 points for a peak award night at a Category 2 hotel property is a 20 percent premium when compared to 12,500 points for a standard award night.

Put another way, the best value is for off-peak award nights at Category 1 hotel properties, with which you will save 33.33 percent on the number of points redeemed versus the standard award night; while at 14.29 percent on the number of points redeemed, the lowest premium for peak award nights applies to Category 3 and Category 5 hotel properties versus the standard award night.

Other restrictions, limitations, terms and conditions — including those of the Marriott Rewards frequent guest loyalty program — may apply and are subject to change.
