Room Upgrade Information

Available at selected Marriott brand hotels and resorts and The Ritz-Carlton hotels, you will need an upgrade reward for each night in an upgraded room, in addition to your regular hotel reward.

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 upgrade 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.
