Update: Marriott has confirmed that as of January 28, 22 Delta hotels have joined Marriott Rewards. An additional 14 will join in late April, 2016.
No, not that Delta. Earlier this year, Marriott completed its acquisition of Canadian hotel chain Delta Hotels and Resorts. By bringing the new brand on board, Marriott added hotels in 30 major Canadian destinations, including 37 properties and nearly 10,000 additional rooms. Of course, the big news for Marriott Rewards members is that you’ll eventually be able to earn and redeem points with Delta Hotels and Resorts, and now we have a timeline to share.
You can boost your Marriott Rewards balance with sign-up bonuses from the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card and the Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card, in addition to transfers from Ultimate Rewards.
Beginning June 18th, Marriott elite members will receive the following benefits with Delta:
Then, in “early 2016,” you’ll be able to earn and redeem points for stays. You’ll also earn Elite Night Credits, 48-hour guaranteed room availability (Gold and Platinum Marriott members) and Rewards point bonuses, just as you would at other Marriott hotels.
This is particularly fantastic news for Marriott Rewards members who travel frequently to Canada, but even if you only pop up north once and a while you should be able to benefit from the acquisition.
