Marriott added the 31st brand to its portfolio with the acquisition of City Express in May. These hotels are now integrated into the Marriott Bonvoy® loyalty program so that members can earn and redeem points.
City Express is a Latin-American hotel chain that has 150 hotels in Mexico, Chile, Colombia, and Costa Rica. One of its hotels is pictured above. The portfolio consists of five brands, including: City Express, City Express Plus, City Express Suites, City Express Junior, and City Centro. This will represent an additional 18,000 rooms being added to Marriott.
The City Express loyalty program, known as City Premios Rewards, has been fully integrated into Marriott Bonvoy®. City Premios members can transfer their points and become Marriott Bonvoy® members. These new members will further grow Marriott Bonvoy®, which currently has more than 186 million members globally.
Marriott Bonvoy® is offering City Premios members status matches during this transition phase. Points transfers are possible until September 30th. Select City Premios benefits, such as gift card redemptions, are continuing to be available through the Marriott Bonvoy® loyalty program.
Anthony’s Take: Marriott’s footprint continues to grow and this acquisition greatly increases its presence in cities across Mexico and Central America. It’s always good to have more hotels that can earn points and offer redemption options.
