If you’re looking to plan some summer travel, check out The Ritz-Carlton’s new summer promotion that was announced today. Between July 1 and October 31, you can earn one complimentary night at a Tier 1-3 property for every two paid stays, and you can earn up to 2 complimentary nights.

Earn up to two complimentary nights when you stay at participating Ritz-Carlton properties.

If you are already a member of Ritz-Carlton Rewards you can register for this promotion here by simply entering your membership number. If you’re not yet a member, you can enroll by following this link and by doing so you will be automatically registered for this promotion.

Per the terms & conditions, complimentary night certificates will be deposited into your account 3-5 business days after your second qualifying stay. They can only be used at Tier 1-3 hotels and will expire after one year. To qualify, your stay must consist of consecutive nights and only one room per hotel per stay will be counted. Be aware that certain hotels are excluded from this promotion including: The Ritz - Carlton, Millennia Singapore; Ritz - Carlton, Montreal; Phulay Bay; Dorado Beach; The Ritz - Carlton Destination Club; The Ritz - Carlton Residences; and Partner Hotels. Also remember that you can be a member of either Ritz-Carlton Rewards or Marriott Rewards, but not both programs, and this offer is only open to members of Ritz-Carlton Rewards – either existing members or new members who were not previously members of Marriott Rewards.

Ritz-Carlton has 5 Tiers of properties, but the complimentary night certificates are only good at Tier 1-3 properties and they expire one year from date of issuance. Still you can get some great values by using them at Tier 3 properties like The Ritz-Carlton, DubaiThe Ritz-Carlton Moscow, or The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua on Maui.

Despite the fact that the complimentary nights are only for Tier 1-3 properties, I actually think this is a pretty juicy summer promotion, and much better than some of the other ones out there like Hilton’s Daily Grand promo where you can earn just 1,000-2,000 bonus points per night, or double points with Starwood’s Double Take Promo.

    If you stay for one night, does that count as a “stay” that counts towards earning a complimentary night? Or does a “stay” have to be two or more nights?

  • Jim Strong

    I find it a bit confusing too. It says “to qualify your stay must consist of consecutive nights…”.

  • thepointsguy

    Yes, the terms don’t say anything about having to stay more than one night.

  • thepointsguy

    The terms say this so that people who are staying at a property for more than one night try to check in and check out again and again to try to count each night as a separate stay.

    Puttin’ on the Ritz

    So, if I am already a Marriott Rewards member I just need to enroll in the RC program and provide that new number when making the reservation?

  • Connor

    What if you check in one night, your wife checks in the next night, you check in the following night…. and so on?

  • thepointsguy

    You can’t have been a member of Marriott Rewards if you want to enroll in Ritz-Carlton Rewards. You could take a chance, but if Ritz finds out they will close your account.

  • thepointsguy

    No, the terms state: A stay is defined as consecutive nights spent at the same hotel, regardless of check-in/check-out activity.

  • James

    Any idea why they only let you have one or the other? is there a minimum account lifetime once switched, or are you free to go back and forth? I’ve got no Marriott stays in the next year, so I pulled the trigger.

    Only Ritz Rewards member can join this promotion ? If I am a Marriot Rewards member, may I switch it to Ritz Rewards member then join this promotion ?
