The Experience of Marriott Rewards Travel: Perks Galore!

I am happy to be able to work with the Marriott Rewards┬« program and Mom Central Consulting, my family loves to travel! Although compensated, all opinions are mine, read all about how to get free hotel rooms and hot perks at Marriott properties…


The Pool at JW Marriott Hotel, Santa Monica


I will admit: I was never a member of the Marriott Rewards® program until recently. I often stay at Marriott properties, but I guess it never occurred to me that I should be taking advantage of all of perks that come with signing up. Recently, I was given a bunch of points and upgraded to Platinum Elite status to be able to check out a hotel of choice. We decided that since the weather is so gorgeous here in Southern California, we would have a quick getaway. We hit the road and headed North to Los Angeles, we stayed at the JW Marriott Santa Monica Le Marigot.

If you are ever in the Los Angeles area, this is THEE place to stay! I am not sure if you know about Marriott’s JW properties, but they are some of the finest right under the Ritz Carlton. This property is right by the beach, Santa Monica Pier, and so many nice restaurants and shops. Since we were Marriott Rewards┬« Platinum Elite guests, we were able to take advantage of so many great benefits. We got free wifi, late check out, and even our own dedicated Platinum Elite reservation line. I was glad that I could stay connected and check emails late at night after a fun and exhausting day at the beach and the pool.
