Earlier this year a family issue came up and we needed to cancel a trip to Venice, Italy to celebrate my parents anniversary. It’s been rattling around ever since and I was discussing making a late 2019 speculative booking at the Gritti Palace ( soon to be cat 8 ) for 60k a night. This is an epic, $1000+ a night hotel right in the heart of Venice and is emblematic of the aspirational redemptions we seek here at MM.
While I was going over strategy with my folks I realized I’d never published the extension Marriott had given its members to book category 7 hotels at category 6 prices. Early in December we learned that we’d have until March 2019 to book at the 60k a night rate before they are raised to 85k a night.
If you are even mildly leaning towards taking a trip, and a property you’re keen on staying at is listed to raise in price you have a little more time to shore up your dates.
The exact date in March has yet to be announced – but get your booking on!
