Marriott has introduced a new feature on their website that will help you avoid a lot of stress and frustration. The hotel chain has added a button that allows you to see actual room rates with all taxes and fees included.
While these resort fees aren’t going away anytime soon, this will certainly help you better understand how much you’re actually paying for your hotel stay.
Whether you’re looking for a hotel room or a residential property, you can find it all on marriott search. In addition to hotel rooms, the app now offers Homes & Villas by Marriott International home rentals and Marriott Bonvoy Tours & Activities. The new dynamic map makes it easy to see which properties are nearby, and you can book award stays right on the app.
As always, one of the best ways to save on hotel rooms is to travel during off-season. Many hotels lower their prices one month prior to your check-in date, so traveling around that time can help you save on the overall cost of your trip. As well, it’s important to know what taxes and fees are associated with a particular property, which can add significant costs to your overall bill. Marriott has recently introduced a new search option that shows you actual room rates with all fees and taxes included, allowing you to compare prices much more easily than before.
In addition to hotel rooms, Marriott also offers a number of residential properties. From swanky penthouse apartments in Miami and Las Vegas to beachfront condos along the Carolina coast, you can score a slice of the local pie for a fraction of what you’d pay for a hotel room. The company even has a bespoke residential concierge service to boot, which is a bit of a rarity these days. The best part? A marriott search account is free. The app has a wealth of features that make it easy to navigate to the right property, as well as to check in and out on the go.
Tours & Activities
If you’re looking for tours and activities in a specific destination, marriott search offers a convenient place to find them. It also allows you to compare options from more than 30 different booking sites, so you can find the best deal.
Currently, the platform specializes in typical tourist activities in major international destinations. The site also features free tour options that you can book without paying any money.
However, the cancellation policy varies according to the activity provider, and it’s worth keeping that in mind when booking.
As the hotel industry continues to grow, there’s a need for travel companies to expand into other areas, including experiences. Marriott recently invested in metasearch platform PlacePass, which provides listings and price comparisons for more than 100,000 tours and activities in 800 destinations around the world. It’ll be integrated with the company’s own digital channels, including its Marriott and Starwood mobile apps and websites. It’s a move that will add to the experiences already offered to loyalty members through its Experiences Marketplace and Moments program.
