This option is available at the Marriott Redmond Town Center location in Redmond, Washington. I decided to give it a try- 500 points a night if you opt out of housekeeping.
I have a feeling I will need to call back to get the points for it however, as each day when I said hello to housekeeping on my floor they were planning on cleaning our room, despite the door hanger I left on as sort of an experiment. Of course it fell off periodically throughout our stay, or perhaps it was other guests subtly asking me to get some clean sheets and towels..
By the last of our three days I was sufficiently grossed out by myself that I simply asked for fresh towels and soaps from housekeeping. I asked them each morning for more Starbucks coffee for the coffee maker machine too of course- it IS Seattle after all.
cerealtrader you hit the nail on the head here. I realized I should ask for extra toiletries, towels, coffee/tea etc via the app on the front end of my stay. I've now done that twice, and gotten everything I asked for. So, my 3 days without housekeeping didn't leave me wanting for tea and towels
That is another point that I'm not sure we've reiterated in this thread, there is a maximum of three consecutive days going without housekeeping. I don't know whether that's to ensure we haven't completely destroyed the room, or there is some scientific evidence to support that we can't make it beyond 3 days without help.
I saw signs/posters at the desk and near the elevator over the weekend at the Courtyard in Indianapolis near the international airport. My stay was only one night so could not take advantage of the offer.
I did not see the similar information at a Fairfield Inn near Indianapolis but am not certain whether that was because they had not rolled it out or they didn't participate.
I stayed at two Marriotts in London last week. The first did not offer it. The second did, but I was only staying for one night, so couldn't try it. This is new at this hotel. The offer was not there at my previous stay at the hotel 2 weeks earlier, or at any previous stay.
It seems worth a try so long as you can get additional supplies of tea, coffee, shampoo, etc whenever you want them. You're effectively getting 500 points for making the bed yourself.
Here's the link to the program - you can check participating hotels at the bottom, right. Unfortunately, the hotel we stay at the most isn't on the list - wonder why certain hotels choose to participate....
This was actually my first time seeing this for a Marriott on our recent stay at a Springhill Suites at Dallas. Took some haggling since the staff was confused and thought I still needed housekeeping (got a note every day beneath my door) even though I told the frontdesk on day 1 we don't need housekeeping. I usually see this at Sheraton hotels in the past but great to see Marriott rolling this out.
