I am trying to pick a destination, on the romantic side, for early to mid-December. The catch is that I will have three nights free up to Category 5 + a little over 30,000pts (Cat 6). The original plan was Miami beach and the Dolphins/Patriots game BUT of course all of the Miami beach Marriotts start at Category 6 so I cannot use my certificates. From here I've tried to utilize Tripadvisor and Travel+Leisure to find top destinations that won't be freezing and have good Marriott Category 5 options.
I have pretty much narrowed my options down to San Diego (Downtown or La Jolla) and New Orleans (French Quarter).
What does everyone think? Does anyone have other ideas?
Hi and welcome to Insiders! I did a search on the Miami area and found a Category 5 vacation club that might be of interest to you:
As far as San Diego goes there are a couple of cat 5 Courtyard properties that might be of interest:
https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/sancd-courtyard-san-diego-downtown/ - This one has some rooms with Water Views
https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/sancy-courtyard-san-diego-central/ - This one has a nice outdoor pool area with a Fireplace
Hope this helps!
