Marriott Points for Ritz Carlton Stay

I recently returned from a 5 night stay at the Ritz Carlton Cancun. I used Reward points to off-set the nightly room charge, paid $200. USD p/n (identified on the Folio as 'Room Charge') and $100. p/n 'Extra Person Charge'  for the upgrade to the Club Floor (there were 3 of us in the room). There are other charges on the Folio including 'Room Service', 'Fitness Center' and a charge from an outside tour company along with the usual taxes.

 

Do Ritz Room Folio charges earn Marriott Reward Points, and if so which charges, and will I receive 5 Reward points for each $1.00 USD charged at the Ritz to my Marriott VISA card?

 

Regardless, if you have the opportunity and want a treat, the staff and facilities at the Ritz Carlton Cancun are absolutely wonderful!!

    You earn 10 marriott points per dollar spent on room rate (and only room rate) at the ritz carlton. You'll earn 5 points per dollar for EVERY dollar charged at a marriott or ritz carlton property when using your Marriott Premier Visa Signature card or Ritz Carlton Rewards card.

      Is 'room charge' and/or 'extra person charge' for each night of a stay considered part of the 'room rate' for the purposes of marriott points?

        I would think yes, since it is part of the cost to upgrade to club level. I'm not 100% sure though

    Hey knightswhosayni! joshm and team looked into your questions, and it looks like the Ritz-Carlton does not offer points for any type of incidental charges or room upgrade charges, when combined with a redemption reservation. However, like @jsucool76 mentioned, charges paid for with the Ritz Carlton credit card at the hotel will earn you 5 points per dollar.

      the Marriott premier card will also give you 5 pts /$1 spent as well.
