1000 Free Marriott Points is Back!

After taking a week off for Christmas, Marriott is back with their offer of 1000 free points if you can answer their NFL trivia question. Here is this week’s question:

If you think you know the answer, link your Marriott and Twitter accounts (see this post for instructions) and reply to @MarriottRewards with the answer.  Be sure to include the hashtag #RewardsPoints.  Tweets must be submitted by 8 PM ET.

This is the last week of the NFL’s regular season and I don’t know if Marriott will continue to offer points during the playoffs so be sure to get these 1000 points this week!

Note: Two weeks ago there were issues with bots compromising the process so make sure you get a response to your tweet.  If you submit your tweet before 8 PM ET but don’t hear back from Marriott by the following morning, follow up with tweets to @MarriottRewards and @Marriott to be sure you get your points.

Lodging Review: Residence Inn – Palm Desert, California

I recently spent four nights at the Residence Inn in Palm Desert, California with a couple of friends. When we travel together we each like our own bed so that can sometimes be a challenge to find properties with this configuration.  It’s one reason we love Residence Inns and Hyatt Places – we know we can have the bedding we want AND free breakfast!

Residence Inn Palm Desert

My two friends had already spent a couple of days in the area at a different property before I could join them late on a Tuesday evening.  So thanks to them for taking most of the room photos you’ll see below. Continue reading

Our first two nights in Prague were at the Marriott Courtyard courtesy of the free night we each earned by holding the Chase Marriott credit card.  For our last night we decided to splurge on the Boscolo Prague, which is part of Marriott’s Autograph collection.

I fully admit that we initially selected this hotel because it’s beautiful.  As  it turned out it was more convenient to Old Town and was practically across the street from the train station.

Danube Trip: Marriott Courtyard Prague

Danube Trip: Prague, Czech Republic
Danube Trip: Boscolo, Autograph Collection
Danube Trip: Prague to Nuremberg

Danube Trip: Budapest to Chicago

When deciding where to stay in Prague we naturally turned to our points and free night certificates.  We each have the Marriott credit card from Chase and that card comes with a free night certificate for a category 1-4 hotel.  Since the Courtyard is a category 4, it worked out perfectly for us.  We booked two free nights, each using our certificate.  We decided to splurge on the Boscolo, part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, for our final night.

The front desk staff assisted us quickly.  They noted that they were completely full for the night and thus could not give us our preference of a room, which was a high floor away from the elevator.  They did say that we could have that type of room for the following night.  Knowing that we’d be spending very little time in the room, we opted to keep the same room for both nights.

We’d reserved a room with two beds and they appeared to be double beds.
