Marriott Bonvoy Introduces Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy

Last year, Marriott announced the launch of Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy, a new brand of serviced apartments designed for travelers seeking unique experiences. These apartments will cater to leisure travelers looking for upscale, locally-inspired accommodations with the convenience of home amenities like full kitchens and laundry facilities.

Integration into Marriott Bonvoy Program

Details about Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy are still limited, but the program has announced how these stays will be integrated into the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program. According to a spokesperson, guests can earn 5 points per dollar spent on these extended stays, offering a high-end alternative to budget-minded brands like Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites.

Will It Be the Next Airbnb?

While Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy may not rival Airbnb, it does provide a smart alternative for those looking to earn points and elite-qualifying nights for their residential stays. With a design approach similar to Marriott's successful Autograph Collection and Tribute Portfolio brands, these unique accommodations offer a distinct hotel experience.

Changes for Four Points Express by Sheraton

Marriott's 33rd brand, Four Points Express by Sheraton, is set to cater to budget-conscious travelers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. While it may not offer one elite-qualifying night per stay, guests will still earn elite night credits on multi-night stays.


Marriott Bonvoy's new changes offer a range of options for travelers, from upscale serviced apartments to affordable midscale accommodations. Whether you're looking for a unique residential experience or a comfortable budget-friendly stay, Marriott Bonvoy has you covered.
