Europe Marriott 3rd Night Free Weekends Mar 6 –May 30

Marriott has a Europe region third night free deal on weekend stays of three consecutive nights for Thursday to Sunday or Friday to Monday. Rate Code C9E.

I tried a couple of hotels using the C9E corporate/promotional code and the search returned several rates offering breakfast, however, look for the specific rate rules stating 3 for 2 with Rate Rules “European Spring 3 for 2, American Breakfast Daily” rate.

This offer is available at 170 hotels across Europe in JW Marriott, Marriott, Renaissance and Courtyard brands from March 6 to May 30, 2011.

This looks to be a much better deal than the Hilton discount sale that requires prepaid, nonrefundable rates. The cancellation policies are liberal for the Marriott 3rd night free with hotel rates I checked showing day of arrival cancellation with no penalty.

  • 3 nights at 118EUR first night and 98 EUR for Saturday and Sunday nights (Sunday free)
  • 216 EUR total for 3 nights with “European Spring 3 for 2, American Breakfast Daily” rate.
  • Other lowest rate (no breakfast) = 98 EUR Fri 4/15 and 78EUR for Saturday and Sunday nights = 254 EUR.

  • 540 GBP total for three nights with breakfast.
  • Visa member offer has discount rate of 187.50GBP per night without breakfast and no 3rd night free.

Visa member offer rate rules state Thursday to Sunday discount rates are available for Visa members from March 14 to August 31, 2011 for Visa members who reserve and pay with a Visa card. The Visa member rate also allows day of arrival cancellation like the 3rd night free rate.

Marriott is generous in with regard to cancellation policies for these European hotel rates.

I have not located a Marriott promotion page for the Visa member offer yet to see the range of hotels offering this discount rate.
