In my Giveaway post this week, where two lucky readers can win $500 Marriott gift cards, I mentioned that Marriott would be coming out with a great deal for December 2nd, Cyber Monday, and today we received the full details of their sale:
“30% off of room rates at over 350 participating Marriott hotels across several brands. This includes a wide selection of hotels, from New York to San Francisco and over 350 hotels in between. Stays must occur between December 20, 2013 and March 31, 2014.”
The sale will open at 12:01 am EST on December 2, 2013 and will end at 11:59pm ET that evening. For 24 hours guests will be able to book special 30% off hotel rates, with participating hotels that range from brands such as Courtyard by Marriott to brands that include Renaissance Hotels and JW Marriott Hotels.
To book reservations go to www.marriottcybermonday.com and enter the promo code: 16C. You can also book stays over the phone and still get the discount by calling 1-888-703-9727 and quoting promo 16C.
Marriott Rewards members will still be eligible to earn points for stays booked using this promotion as well as elite night stay credit and all elite benefits will still be recognized. If you are not yet a member of Marriott Rewards you can sign up here.
I checked sample rates at select Marriott properties for stays during the promo period of December 20 – March 31, and as you can see below, they’re pretty decent:
Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace: starting from $90 per night
JW Marriott New Orleans: starting from $97
JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort: starting from $132 per night
