The Marriott family – which includes Marriott Hotels, The Ritz-Carlton, Autograph Collection Hotels, JW Marriott, Renaissance Hotels and Delta Hotels, as well as 23 other brands – has garnered high praise from travel experts and guests alike for its ability to balance a 50-year-old legacy with innovative luxury. Marriott combines a high level of customer service with a drive to provide visitors with a unique experience at every hotel. What's more, the Marriott Bonvoy rewards program offers frequent guests (including former members of The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and the Starwood Preferred Guest programs) a range of perks, such as free nights and priority late checkout. Members can strive for Silver Elite, Gold Elite, Platinum Elite, Platinum Premier Elite or Platinum Premier Elite with Ambassador membership status for bonus rewards.
