Free WiFi at Marriott

Starting January 15, 2015, Marriott will be offering free in-room WiFi to ALL Marriott Rewards members regardless of status. I am beyond excited to see this happen as WiFi can be an outrageous cost at some hotels. The kicker this benefit is you MUST book your hotel reservation through Marriott directly. Reservations made via a third-party reservation system will not get you this free WiFi access.

Like all benefits at major chain hotels, there are still some hotels that have opted out of this. I feel like Marriott should enforce it on all of their hotels, but oh well. The list includes:

  • Non-Participating Brand: Protea

    • The Ritz-Carlton, Millennia Singapore
    • Phulay Bay, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve

Not yet a Marriott Rewards member? Remember, this only applied for Marriott Rewards members so I highly suggest signing up. There are currently two promotions for new members, so make sure to jump on one of them prior to registering:

  • Refer a friend – Friends can refer others to the Marriott Rewards program where both the referrer and the referee will get 2,000 bonus points for each stay up to 5 stays. That means you both can earn a 10,000 point bonus! Although all stays must occur within 365 days of enrollment. So go find a friend so you can both take advantage of the bonus. I am more than happy to refer you as well, just let me know! Details
  • Free night – Stay twice at a participating hotel for about 6 months and get a free night to use at a category 1-5 hotel. The free night expires one year after it is earned. Details

Hopefully all other chains will follow!
