Members of Marriott International’s loyalty program, Marriott Bonvoy, can take advantage of three new offerings as an alternative to working from home.
The ‘Day Pass’, ‘Stay Pass’ and ‘Play Pass’ packages were designed as flexible options whether guests are seeking a one-day stay from early morning into the evening, extended overnight stay with an early morning check-in and evening checkout or a multi-day work and leisure destination getaway.
“We are inviting guests to work anywhere with Marriott Bonvoy to help them be more productive and achieve a better work/life balance by reimagining our hotel rooms as local remote workspaces for our customers,” said Stephanie Linnartz, Group President – Consumer Operations, Technology & Emerging Businesses, Marriott International. “By providing flexible booking options, our loyalty members and guests have a familiar alternative when choosing where to work.”
Here’s a look at what the passes offer:
Day Pass is a new offering that makes the hotel room your office for the day from 6am check in to 6pm check out. Guests are provided easy access to enhanced Wi-Fi, food and drinks, and additional spaces in the hotel. Additionally, guests are free to access the on-property business facilities such as printing, fax and scanning equipment, wherever available and depending on brand. Marriott Bonvoy members will receive a complimentary welcome amenity of healthy snacks, gift shop discounts, and lounge access where available for those with Platinum, Titanium or Ambassador Elite status and they will earn points on eligible hotel charges.
Stay Pass combines a Day Pass for work with an overnight stay. It is designed to marry all the benefits of a hotel stay with the convenience to be productive and make the most of the workday, with early check in at 6am and late checkout at 6pm the day of departure. In addition to all the amenities included in Day Pass, guests may take advantage of hotel amenities, whether a quick swim or a workout, in markets where regulations allow. Guests can also enjoy free breakfast and complimentary evening cocktails, wherever available. Marriott Bonvoy members will be able to earn Elite night credits, points on eligible hotel charges, gift shop discounts and take advantage of lounge access where available for those with Platinum, Titanium or Ambassador Elite status. Stay Pass is currently available at nearly 2,000 hotels worldwide.
Play Pass is for those seeking to work while also getting away – even with family. Available in participating luxury and resort locations worldwide, Play Pass recognises that consumers currently have much more flexibility to travel, work and engage in school from anywhere they want. Increasingly, consumers are choosing to escape the confines of their home office or work desk and travel while making the most of work and playtime too.
With Play Pass, guests enjoy a business concierge, supervised kids’ activities, preferred office/study spaces along with curated experiences for the whole family to enjoy. Marriott Bonvoy members will be able to earn Elite night credits and points on eligible charges along with access to standard member benefits.
The new range of Passes are currently limited to select locations. Find out more at workanywhere.marriott.com
