Boy, once again I am completely disappointed! I've been waiting and waiting for more information on this deal. And, then get sucker punched...
I thought that the deal Marriott was making with Spain's AC Hotels chain would open up all of their hotels for point redemption. Nope... just 4 hotels. 2 in Madrid, 1 in Granada, and 1 in the Pyrenees will be added to the AC Collection.
AC Hotels have properties in 58 cities/towns in Spain with multiple properties in many of those locations.
I wanted to use MR points in September-October. Guess I'll be looking for somewhere else to vacation this year and return to Spain another year when, hopefully, more properties are added.
The locations that I was interested in included central Spain for this year and northern Spain for another year.
