I am very confused on the rewards allocated for a stay at the Anaheim Marriott Suites. I am wondering if I should stay at Anaheim Suites since I dont see it listed as a sanctioned Marriott. Anyone know?
At Courtyard, RI, etc. you get 1 night for every 3 you stay and Executive Apartments are screwy too.
Just wondering; I want the max points possible but don't really want to stay across from Disneyland.
The Anaheim Suites is a great hotel with Executive King Suites, and my preference over the Residence Inn which tends to get overcrowded with families because the RI is a few blocks from Disney. The Anaheim Suites are available for 25,000 points per night but the RI is difficult to get using points. The Anaheim Suites is most definitely a 'sanctioned' Marriott hotel and actively listed on Marriott.com.
The Reward schedule can be very confusing because the Redeem 4 Get the 5th Night Free pointsavers schedule is built-in, but not explained. Since January 2009, whenever you redeem 4 nights using Marriott Rewards points the 5th night is automatically FREE. Anaheim Suites is a Category 5 hotel where a Standard room may be redeemed for 25,000 points. However, with Redeem 4 Get the 5th Night Free, the 5NC5 Reward Code has the same number of points required as the 4NC5 Reward:
# Nights # Points Reward Code
So if you have to stay 6 nights, book a 5NC5 + 1NC5 for 125,000 points. That's an automatic 20% discount. Enjoy and post back either way if this clears up the confusion or not.
I've stayed at the Anaheim Marriott Suites 3 or 4 times, most recently as last summer, and will be there again this June. Accomodations are teriffic, and I have always been given comp access to the full breakfast buffet during my stays. Hard to imagine you'll go wrong with Anaheim Marriott Suites. Have fun!
