Marriott has officially announced its first loyalty promotion under the new Bonvoy brand.
The promotion is called “Double Take” and it offers double points on all stays (starting with your second stay) at more than 6,700 participating Marriott hotels and resorts around the world. Overall, I think it is a pretty good promotion. Here are the details..

Marriott Bonvoy Promotion: 2020
How the Marriott Bonvoy Double Take Promotion works:
This bonus points will start after you register and stay one night at any hotel that participates in the Marriott Bonvoy Program. Then, starting with your second stay, you will earn bonus points for each stay at Marriott hotels and resorts worldwide. The double bonus points are not for all the points you earn, just the base points. Base points are are calculated as follows:
- 10 base points per dollar spent on all qualifying charges at most Marriott Bonvoy Brands
- 5 base points per dollar spent on all qualifying charges at Residence Inn, TownPlace Suites and element.
- 2.5 base points per dollar on all qualifying charges at ExecuStay and Marriott Executive Apartments.
Here is a quick calculation on how many points you will earn for a $200 hotel stay at different Marriott brands, including any elite status bonuses you may qualify for.
There is no cap on the number of points that can be earned with this promotion.
Marriott Card Holder Bonus – There is a second bonus on this offer for Marriott credit card holders, although it is not great and pobably won't apply to most people. With this part of the bonus you can earn 500 bonus points for a weekend stay, which is essentially any paid stay that includes a Friday and Saturday night.
