Ways to redeem Marriott Bonvoy points for maximum value:

Here are just a few examples of the many ways in which you could redeem 200,000 points with Marriott.

For 197,000 points you could book 3 nights at this top-tier, luxury hotel in Venice, a stay that would cost you about $2,500 in cash.

You could also book this hotel in Bali for a whopping 40 nights for only 198,000 points! This stay would otherwise cost you around $2,800 if you were paying cash.


Or, if you want some CRAZY value, you could book 21 nights at this hotel in Kathmandu, Nepal for 198,000 points. If you booked this with your hard-earned money, you would pay $3,800. That's some incredible value right there.
