It's summer and I have "travel" on my mind. That, and "adventure." Perhaps that's why we've been going on long-ish family hikes, tentatively planning a trip to Washington State, and dreaming about going on a camping trip (soon!).
If you're vacationing or road-tripping this summer, I wanted to be sure and tell you about Marriott's FREE Rewards program. Marriott Rewards has no blackout dates and points can be redeemed for hotel stays, frequent flyer miles, cruises, car rentals, brand-name merchandise, and more. And, now, with Marriott Instant Redemption, you can choose to spend your points on room service, a massage, a round of golf, or a room upgrade.
Marriott Rewards points can be earned by staying at over 3,200 Marriott International hotels around the world (including Marriott Hotels & Resorts, JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Renaissance Hotels, Courtyard, Residence Inn, Fairfield Inn & Suites, TownePlace Suites, SpringHill Suites, and Marriott Vacation Club).
I wonder how SLY Award recipient Nicole Bateman will spend her 25,000 points! Perhaps she'll round up her boys for a mini "staycation" at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa - I just know her boys would LOVE the Monsoon Falls Waterslide! Or maybe she and her husband will escape for a night away at the Scottsdale Marriott at McDowell Mountains. So many possibilities!
