Marriott 20% Global Rate Break – Book by Jan 22, Stay by March 21

Marriott has a 20% global rate break for weekend stays, valid from Thursday through Sunday nights. Some resorts in Hawaii, Caribbean, and Latin America offer 40% discounts and offer the global rate break seven days a week. The rate is available at over 2,500 participating hotels in all 9 Marriott brands. At most hotels, the discount rate requires a Friday or Saturday night as part of your stay.

Marriott Global Rate Break Promotional Code = F5X.

Some hotels offer a breakfast rate discount for just a few dollars more than the room only rate.

The Marriott Global Rate break is not a prepaid, nonrefundable rate for hotels I checked in San Francisco where the reservation could be cancelled up to day of arrival. Hilton’s weekend rate Winter Sale of 33% discount or 50% discount for weekends all through 2010 is a bigger discount available through January for booking, but the Hilton rate is prepaid and nonrefundable.

The JW Marriott San Francisco had weekend rates as low as $143.20 for Friday, January 29. The same hotel and date with a breakfast rate was $155.20. Adding $12 to the room-only rate to receive breakfast for two at the J.W. Marriott is a good deal. The AAA room-only rate was $161 for this date so the 20% discount rate was a better value than the AAA rate.

JW Marriott Ihilani Resort in Oahu, Hawaii Monday Feb 1-Monday Feb 8

Cancellation allowed up to 3 days before arrival.

King, Mountain or Golf view = $203.40/night

King, Deluxe Ocean View with breakfast for 2 = $281.40/night.

(The Deluxe Ocean View room category for this resort was priced at $417 per night (AAA rate, no breakfast) in a hotel rate search conducted August 2009 for a 5-night stay on Nov 7-12 for this Loyalty Traveler post.)
