Currently Marriott is promoting Mexico and Caribbean resorts packages that include breakfast for two and one $100 credit per stay. At Aruba, as an example, you can get a room only in March for $349 per night. If you want the above promotion, the rate turns into $539 per night. So for an additional $190 they'll throw in free breakfast and a $100 credit.
Who actually falls for this promotion?
And speaking of Club 91, the Aruba Marriott has thier version named Tradewinds. $729 per night in March.....that's right, nearly $400 more than a regular room to access breakfast, finger foods, apps and drinks. No Platinum upgrades or points allowed to access....cash only. NO THANKS!
