Marriott Rewards new website pages make navigation to the Marriott Hotel Directory page to search hotels by reward category hard to find. There are all kinds of navigation routes that take you to different kinds of hotel pages. I copied the direct link to the Marriott Hotel Directory page in a file for easy access to the worldwide hotel directory.
Filter tools are available on the Marriott Hotel Directory page to search by reward category, region, country, city, brand and more.
Open ‘Rewards Category’ and I can filter for category 7 hotels to see 210 hotels worldwide.
USA has 64 Marriott Rewards category 7 in 11 states.
Europe has 91 category 7 hotels in 15 countries.
Italy has 19 category 7 hotels. Click on Italy for a page list of 19 hotels.
There is a filter button near the top of the page.
Using the filter button allows a search refinement focused on Italy.
Change the search of Italy to category 5 and 6 hotels only.
Now I have a new list of 17 hotels.
Assume I want a hotel with a pool. Filter for pool using the Amenities menu.
I see there are 6 hotels in Italy in Category 5 and 6 with a pool.
Seeing Westin Excelsior Rome has a pool has me wondering if Category 7 St. Regis Rome has a pool? I walked by both these hotels when I was in Rome in June.
Go back to the filter button and add category 7 to the search and I get a list of 15 hotels in Italy in Marriott Rewards category 5-6-7 with a pool.
Scrolling down the list ordered alphabetically by city name shows St. Regis Rome does not have a pool, however, Palazzo Naiadi, The Dedica Anthology, Autograph Collection has a pool. This hotel is only 400 meters from St. Regis Rome and closer to Termini train station on Piazza della Repubblica.
Marriott Rewards Hotel Directory page and filters can be a useful tool to narrow down precisely the kind of hotel you want where you want to go.
