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!
Note: If you like, you can follow Marriott on Twitter.
WIN IT! One winner will receive 25,000 Marriott Rewards points. To enter, leave any topic-related comment on this post prior to Tuesday, June 22nd at 11:59 p.m. All generic comments like “Enter me!,” “Love it,” and “Cool stuff!” will be disqualified. Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.
Marriott has generously donated two 25,000 point credits for this SLY Awards promotion – one for Nicole and one for the giveaway. I received no product or monetary compensation for this post. I’m just excited to celebrate Nicole and…you.
*UPDATE* The winner is #9 Vanessa. Congratulations!
My family and I are traveling to North Carolina later this summer to visit family and this would be perfect! My father in law recently had to move into assisted living and we have no where to stay!
He had a lovely old home and had to give it up when his health deteriorated.
We love to stay at Marriott
This would be great to have for a mini vacation weekend to somewhere down by the beach.
We stayed at a Marriott Courtyard last summer during out trip to Sesame Place. We were very impressed! The beds were so comfortable, the rooms were very clean, and the kids loved the pool!
This would be great for our next family vacation to mount rushmore! :)
I'm sure my husband would love to use these points for a round of golf...but I'll probably use the points for spa services. I think I deserve it!
I like the marriott hotels I have stayed twice, once with the kids and once without and it was nice both times thanks for the chance. I would love to stay at one in seattle. [email protected]
No blackout dates? I've had trouble with my current points card, I can never book my trip when I want it! Sign me up!
We love to travel and I actually like Marriott hotels. We just stayed in one in April and had a great visit. I sure would love to win this giveaway!
I love this program. I would love to win the contest. It would be great for a family vacation.
Wow! Wouldn't this be fun??!! I love the pampered feeling of staying at a Marriott property! My husband and I could really use a get-away for sure; we have ten kids at home!!! What a blessing it would be for us to win this incredible prize of staying at a Marriott!
I would LOVE to have a getaway to a beautiful Marriott! I LOVE Marriott, they are so relaxing, comfortable, and beautiful! And we are so in need of a getaway! This would be wonderful for our family! thanks for the chance!

I have always loved Marriott hotels, and my fiance and I would love to spend our honeymoon at one.
I would love to have a staycation at the JW Marriot in Atlanta at Lenox.
My wife and I love Marriott hotels and could really use a weekend away - even if we just go to the next town!
Thanks for the giveaway...a Marriott is my first choice when traveling !
senorpiero [at] yahoo [dot] com
I just LOVE the Marriott!!!! The staff is always easy to work with!! :)
this could be very useful to me. i have been battling neuroendocrine tumors and have to fly periodically from the west coast to the east coast for testing and evaluation. love Marriott.
Marriot is great. I stay there a lot for work.
I could really use those points!
After a tough first year with baby number 3, a nice vacation sounds wonderful right now. That waterslide at the Tuscon Marriot is sounding especially good.
I'd sure love to win this because we stayed at the Renaissance Marriot Hotel in Aruba last spring when our son was married down there. The hotel owns a private island (where the wedding was held on the beach at sunset,) and a small boat goes back and forth every 20 minutes and is available only for those staying at the hotel. Beautiful and private! Loved the hotel!
My family and I are presently planning a trip to Hawaii using various frequent flyer miles, we are short 5 nights stay. These Marriott points would sure help us towards our goal of a 10 days free in Hawaii!!
Traveling is the greatest thing! I love all the places I have been and would go back to any of them, especially Santa Fe, Puerto Vallarta or Rome.
I so want a vacation!
Ooh! Would love to stay at the Marriott! Maybe we'd take a trip to Maui! :)
I stayed at Marriott in San Diego and it was absolutely wonderful...I'd say the best experience EVER. It was beyond words.
Bringing our big family of 6 kids on vacation to a Marriott would be an awesome memory. We love to spend time away from homework and after school activities and just have fun!
We love staying at the Marriott and just came back from one of them at Washington DC. Great service and accommodations. Love their reward points too!
ardy22 at earthlink dot net
Trying to do a weekend getaway to Philly and this would be great for the hotel portion (that way I can spend more money on food and good seats to a Phillies game :)
Wow, This is great! I would plan a honeymoon for me and my husband. We will be married three years next month and have not taken one yet.
This would be a huge blessing for us to win as we could use it next month when we head down south to pick up our newest addition through adoption.
Wow, what an awesome giveaway! We have a couple of trips planend this summer and it would be SO wonderful to put this toward our lodging expenses! I also love that the points are flexible and can be used for hotel services in addition to just room expenses.
kendylann3 (at) yahoo (dot) com
Great giveaway. I have not seen my mom in 3 years. I would use the points to visit her in Denver.
We are trying to plan a quick weekend to Chicago and would LOVE to use the points to stay at a Marriott property downtown
Dave and I have 7 kids between us.
We are always busy, always running and though we have date nights they are becoming less and less datey.
So... how about taking the kids to Disney Land? Having my sister come and watch the kids at the hotel while we are there and giving us a night out, in another state?
We could stay at the Marriott... cut costs and have a truly romantic time out!
I prefer Marriotts to other hotels because they are so nice. Because I am usually on a very tight budget, I generally do not get to stay at them. This prize would make that possible this summer.
i will use the points to go to the marriott in orlando, fl on vacation
I would love to go see my Mom in NY
We are using our Marriott points to go to Florida in August. It would be great to win and extend our vacation!
This would be great to use to visit out families in Omaha. They have a great Marriott hotel there we like to stay at.
I am a huge fan of the Marriott chain and would love take a much need vacation.
I would love to surprise my husband for our upcoming 36th wedding anniversary with a trip to California to stay in a Marriott. He would love it!!!
I am totally looking forward to our upcoming family vacation. We are driving to SD!
My BFF and I are planning a trip to Europe this summer and are looking at some Marriott hotels overseas! We've always had great experiences at Marriotts.
I love Marriott. Always clean and well appointed and right near the destinations I want. 25,000 points would go a long way towards an overdue vacation!
We are trying to arrange a trip to visit our newest family additions and this would definitely help us along the way! :)
We would love to have these points to spend on a mini-vacation to visit the new niece!
My son has swim meets over the summer. It would be great to go to some of these meets with style (not to mention a great hotel). Thanks for the chance.
I think a summer getaway by myself would be great..The family..ok..but myself..wow...a night to sleep without getting woke up and no fighting..
My family would love to take a vacation this summer and stay at a Marriott. Residence Inns are our favorite and always seem to be located near great attractions. Thanks for the giveaway!
Our favorite Marriott property are the TwonePlace suites. Whenever we travel, our family trys to stay at one because they are set up for families. Spacious room with kitchenette, pool and a delicious breakfast. I'd love to win 25,000 Marriott points, too. My balance is getting low. GLTA!
I would love to add 25, 000 points to my Marriott rewards card. I only have a few thousand right now, not enough to redeem yet!
we desperetly need a vacation lol anywhere would be nice even just going to a hotel to get out of here for a bit
I love the beds at the Marriott so much that it's a little ridiculous. When my father had a really serious operation, the Marriott staff made us feel like we were at home & they were honestly concerned for us. It was very special.
I have never been to marriott, but would like to go to north carolina and stay at one
I love the Marriott hotels--I would love to win the points I would use it to go stay at the Marriott in Newport Beach, California.
Nice win. Thanks for counting me in. We really like Marriot hotels.
Would love to win this thanks ! Marriots rock!
Would love to spend a night with my family at any Marriott hotel...they are awesome!
We're having our 3rd child in just a few weeks, so I could really use these (after she's born!)
I WOULD LOVE TO STAY AT A MARRIOTT HOTEL. We just got a brand new one in our hometown and it looks AWESOME!!
I love all of the fun amenities at them!
Marriotts are my favorite, I get sad when we travel somewhere without one.
We have a Courtyard by Marriot here in town. Would love to have a one or two night babymoon there!
Marriott always treats you so well. I would love to 'run away' with my husband for a few nights and a Marriott is the perfect place to run.
I love the idea of being able to redeem points for things like room service. Often I can get a good deal on a hotel room, but not on the extras.
My hubby travels almost 150,000 airplane miles a year not including car travel. We stay at only Marriott related hotels. It's awesome that we can combine out points. We are a big fan of The Courtyard Hotels for their breakfast's. Thank You Marriott!!!
Wow, what a great contest that has me daydreaming about what I would do... where to go... Im a single mom with four daughters and well... we haven't been on a vacation in a while... I think that we would probably use the points at Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes ... I can already envision the relaxing time enjoying the summer sun and listening to the ocean waves .... letting them lull me to sleep!!!
Ahhhh... please don't force me to wake up from this daydream... it is sooo wonderful.. looking at the Resort photo tour has me imagining the sounds of the ocean already !!! http://www.marriott.com/hotels/hotel-photos.mi?marshaCode=myrgd&pageID=HWHOM
Marriott hotels are beautiful and we really never get to stay in them hehe
I have won a trip to Scotland and I am staying in a Marriott. They are letting us extend our stay at our own dime, so I could really use these points. PLEASE
I love the versatility of the Marriott Rewards program - it's awesome that they allow their customers to use their points on free nights, services and luxuries, even shopping. With summer travel season approaching, it's definitely an added reason (and added bonus) for booking at the Marriott wherever we travel to this year. Thanks!
This is a terrific prize.The Marriott hotels are so nice.
Great give-a-way family vacation
we desperately need a staycation so this would come in very handy
jdmimi at gmail dot com
I'd love to take off for a few nights with my sweetie. I've stayed at quite a few of the Marriott properties across the country and I've never been disappointed.
Holy Crap, 25,000 Marriott Rewards points. Stayed at the Marriot on Oahu, most beautiful, most enjoyed hotel stay ever. I'd use these points to go back!
I always trust the Marriott chain whenever I travel. Especially overseas 'cause you know what your going to get and that is nice clean rooms and great service. Thanks for the nice chance at a great giveaway.
I would love a getaway to a Marriott hotel. Every one that I have stayed in has been lovely. We usually get to go to the beach for a few days in the summer, but with teacher furloughs this year that luxury had to be cut out. Help a teacher and mother of four get a little R & R before heading back to the classroom! LOL
We've stayed at the Marriott on many occasions, and it is always great! They have the amenities needed to travel with a toddler. I hope Nicole enjoys her stay and time away in the comfort of Marriott.
Our family loves suite hotels, and this would make it lots easier. As always, thanks for the site and giveaway!
I just stayed at my very first Marriott and it was really nice!
We frequently stay at Marriott and love them. If we win, we would use this on our anniversary for a romatic getaway.
Im a freelancer graphic designer and I had a great time working and traveling in the marriot at new orleans!Would love to get a chance to spend some time resting and not working and resting for a change(:
I love the Marriott in Minneapolis! Would absolutely adore this with a summer vacation in the works depending on funds.
I would love a weekend away with my husband (and without our kids), especially as our 4th wedding anniversary is coming up.
I love Marriott hotels especially the JW Marriotts.
We would like to go to the Nags Head/Kitty Hawk area of North Carolina this fall. This would be great for that.
I'd love to use Marriott Rewards points for a night in San Diego!
chrisny2(at) aol(dot) com
Oh this would be a huge blessing as we will be watching our son graduate from Army boot camp this summer and will need lodging and plane tickets!!
I would love to take my grandkids on a trip and this would really help.
We love staying at the Marriott because their personnel are really service oriented and the hotels are always nice. I'm hoping to get schedules coordinated so I can take my granddaughters on a short trip to D.C. this summer. It would be wonderful to have Rewards points to use for a hotel.
I do a lot of rode trip traveling and Marriott Hotels are every I've been. This is so convenient and shows how widespread a Marriott reward card can go!
We stayed at a new Mariott Springhill Suites last weekend. It was new and had a very cool "Metropolitan" modern design going on. I really liked the sliding doors on the TWO bathrooms - great idea for adding to space in a hotel room - and the workspace divider between the bedroom and the living areas. Very nice - I'd stay at one again in a heartbeat and the points could help make that happen.
I would love for me and my spouse to take a little trip...it has been a really tough year, and our child was seriously ill, and we both had job losses, blah blah wah wah....we'd really like to get away, lol....
I'd love to plan a mini trip for the family~everyone needs a chance to get away every once in a while=) Marriott is going to really make someone's day!
i would love to go on a vacation with my husband. Our children are now grown and moved on with their lifes. we are retired and could afford the marriot.
I need a hotel stay when I travel to Ft. Lauderdale later this year. There are a few Marriotts in that area that look really great!
We stayed at a Mariott in downtown Memphis on our wedding night...it was FABULOUS! It would be amazing to go to a Mariott in another city for a little getaway!
This would come in handy on the road trip the kids and I are taking this summer. I have stayed at the Marriot before, and they are very nice.
i would love to stay at the Marriot
When I hear Marriott I think of a soft, comfortable bed that I gratefully sink into at the end of a full day of power-tourism.
This is a terrific giveaway. Marriott hotels are really great - I have stayed in MANY! :) I also like how the points can be spent for more than just a hotel room - that is a great bonus to their rewards program! I would LOVE to spend reward points for a massage or something fun! :)
We always try to stay at a Marriott property when we travel. 25,000 points would be great.
You have nooooooo idea how I need a vacation. I've loved every Marriott I've ever stayed in. My fingers are crossed ever so tightly. Thank you for the chance!
I have always been a Marriott Rewards girl, I have stayed free nights all over the United States, as well as Bermuda, London, and St. Thomas. I already have a plan of where I want to put my points towards for this summer's trip!
I have a Marriott Rewards account because I travel for work, I try to stay in a Marriott as much as possible. The beds are sooooo comfy and the service is always top notch.
We would love to be able to travel more and to stay at some of the great Marriott properties.
A mini staycation sounds like something we need badly! Marriott has always had good service.
I've never stayed at a Marriott but would love to. This would be a nice break from Days Inn. :)
i would love to stay at the Marriot in downtown Brooklyn, NY. I had the opportunity to go in there and it is gorgeous.
rmartinclarke at gmail dot com
What a treat this would be...the imagining of the getaway is almost as fun as the winning! Well, not quite...
I love Marriott Hotels.... would love to win this prize!!!
I love Marriott hotels. I try to stay at them as much as can on vacation. this would be a great reward for me to win.
They have a lot of great bonus opportunities too -so if you are enrolled, make sure you sign up to get their mailings to see when their bonus-times are.
This is a great giveaway. I would use this for a much needed weekend away with my husband.
Whenever we travel, I always check for the closest Marriott Hotel to where we will be staying.
I would love to use these points for a small getawy. Thaks!!
My family and I have stayed at a Marriott before and enjoyed it. My husband travels and always stays at a Marriott. The points are definitely a plus!!
I'm already a member. Unfortunately, their redemption website does not seem to me to be well organized to give you, say, all of a particular category's hotels ("as in where in the US can I stay for free with my points") in contrast to your telling it where you're going first and they responding with a list of nearby hotels.
We're taking our first family vacation! OK, its kind of a last-minute mini version of a vacation, but it's still our very first family vacay. We leave early tomorrow morning - bound for Seaworld San Antonio! We're back home by the end of the weekend, but we're going to pack a lot of fun into the next three days:) Still have to book a hotel and I just saw that there is a Courtyard by Marriot close to Seaworld - time to start earning some points!
I love Marriott Hotels and would love to win this! I plan to travel a lot in the next few months so I could really use this.
the honeymoon we never had
We love Marriott! They are everywhere and picking one to stay at would be hard, but I am sure we could come up with one.
I would love to win as a (belated) father;s day gift for my husband! We are going to take a little trip to see a band I really like this summer and he works so hard he would love to be able to stay at a Marriott for free! We would stay in one anyways so this wold be a bonus (he always carries his little rewards card)!
The point would really help for our upcoming trip to Vegas and Seattle!
We love Marriott Reward points. Especially since you can use them at a Residence Inn. That's our favorite place to stay because it's family friendly w/free breakfast and a little kitchen!
Wow! What a special treat for Nicole and family! I think with so many people feeling the pinch of the economy right now, this giveaway seems like a dream. We are blessed to have family all over the country (and in different countries), but we don't get to see them much due to the cost. Affordable travel and lodging is always a bit tricky. Great gift idea Stephanie!
The Marriott rewards program is one of the best ones around. The hotels always meet my expectations.
Our budget lately has been more Motel6 than Marriott, so this prize would be wonderful!
How nice! We're still thinking about where to go for a summer trip this year. Despite having to pack for 3 kids, I'm all about the last-minute, spontaneous adventure!
I'm longing for an adventure too! When traveling home from our high school reunion last weekend I was sorely tempted to add a few days to our drive. We did the next best thing by choosing a different route and stopping in several odd tourist locations, but I'm still dreaming of sneaking off. This is a fun prize idea!
This would be the perfect prize for my gf and I. We need a vacation and the Marriott is by far, the best.
When I traveled for work I chose a Marriott if there was one around just so I could get the points and use them for personal trips later. I love the Residents Inn Marriott's the best because they have a small kitchen and you can save on dining costs.
Marriott is my fave hotel change
I am already a Marriott card member and love it! My wife and I are planning a trip in the near future and this would be so, so useful (my fuel pump went our so this would help with paying, haha). But seriously, I love their Hotels!!!!
Staying at the Marriott when we elope would be icing on the cake for sure!
I love Marriotts! I could certainly use a vacation and this would sure help!
I want to take my daughter to San Antonio where she was born and show her were she was born and go to sea world. Marriott is my favorite hotel with comfortable beds and great breakfast.
I could use a vacation, and this would definitely help me in affording one. Love Marriott.
I would love this, just used up all of my banked points on my trip home to visit friends and family last week
We would use ours to help with our trip to chicago this summer
I would love to take a trip back to Indianapolis this summer to see friends. I have stayed at the Marriott downtown and it is beautiful.
We would use ours to help with our trip to chicago this summer.
I love this deal.
Marriott is my favorite hotel, hands down!!
A vacation sure does sound good right about now. The Tucson resort you mentioned sounds fun, I want to go on that waterslide!
I seriously love the Marriott rewards program. You can get some fantastic rooms for a really low amount of points, and it's so easy to earn points!
The Marriotts are probably my favorite chain. I like their suites with the little kitchens best.
I prefer the Marriotts overseas.
I don't think I've ever stayed at a Marriott but my husband and I just had a baby so a vacation would be wonderful!
Marriott hotels are wonderful. My husband especially liked the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta.
I have only stayed at a Marriot once and do remember it being a really nice hotel. My husband and I like to get away for a weekend once in awhile, this would be an awesome win, thanks for the chance to win!
We always try to stay at Marriotts. Last time we were in Savannah GA I wish we had stayed there! We did eat breakfast at the Marriott and it was truly lovely.
Wow, it's been a while since I've stayed at a Marriott. The last one I went to was in Vancouver, Canada but I actually enjoyed it. If I travel anytime soon I'll definitely consider signing up for their rewards program.
I was glad to learn more about the Marriott’s FREE Rewards program
I've never stayed at a Marriott, but would love to. We'll be heading out on our family vacation next month, so this would be a great time to try Marriott.
I have stayed at their hotel. Very clean and great service.
this would motivate me to take a great marriot vacation!
Although we don't always stay at Marriott's, we find that they have some of the nicest rooms as far as hotels go.
Oooh I would love to win this! I would love to go somewhere, close-ish, for a mini vacation. Maybe just hubs and me... we could use some "us time."
My hubby and I will be married 29 years on June 26th. Every year for our Anniversary, we try to get away, even if it is only for a day or two at a local B&B or Hotel, for a bit of romance. The Marriott's here in Madison are beautiful. As we haven't been able to afford our annual getaway for the last two years, it would truly be awesome.
Thanks for the information! I am road tripping to North Carolina this summer and my boyfriend wants to rough it and camp the entire time. I hope his economical and deal-loving side will be unable to resist free Marriott points, and I will get at least a night or two of hotel stays!
One of the anime conventions my friends and I attend always has it in a Mariott in Coralville, Iowa. Their beds are super comfy and the decor's so nice~
I just spent a happy Memorial Day weekend at the Marriott Courtyard in downtown Chicago. (Go Hawks!) The best part: my brother got our room free with his Marriott points! I'd love to return the gesture next time he is back in the U.S.
Or use it for a weekend getaway with my husband....1st anniversary is coming up fast. How about a weekend at the Marriott Renaissance Chicago?!
It's my hubby and my 10 year anniversary this October and since having our daughter (5 years ago) we haven't been alone over night together once. We would love to take a weekend trip to a hotel somewhere and just have one uninterrupted night of sleep. We can't afford to take a special trip, so getting these points would really help us to at least get a night out..that is if Grandma will come and babysit! Thanks Marriott!
Any Marriott that we've stayed at has always been very nice and very accomadating.
I love the Marriott. Whenever I travel, I try to stay at their hotel. This year we stayed at The Courtyard by Marriott Newburgh for a week and we found it so inviting we didn't want to leave.
We love to stay at Marriott when traveling, we find that they have quality,clean and friendly staff.
What an amazing getaway anyone could have! Marriot Hotels are standard in excellence and I would love to have a mini-break. Congrats to who does win.
Winning this would give me the chance to take in the town with my husband! That would be a great anniversary present to us!
I could use a little getaway with my hubby - this would be nice.
I love Marriot Hotels and would love to stay in the Bahamas!
I love Marriott hotels! I just stayed in one in Beijing last month and it was in my Top 5 hotel stays ever! Such a classy place!
I could really usethese points. I got a ten monthold and buy do i need a vaca.
We are staying at the Marriott in Albany, NY next weekend as my daughter is in the Empire Cup soccer tournament.
Love Marriott hotels...especial Courtyard hotels.
Would love to see San Francisco or DC this summer.
I've never stayed at a Marriott, but I'd love the opportunity--and DH and I need a vacation in the worst way!
My family loves to travel and this would be a great giveaway to win. Marriott's are so nice and safe, we would surely enjoy this giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity. We would put it to good use!
I love to stay at the Marriot whenever I get the chance!
Very classy place, I love Marriots!
I love Marriott! It's just about the only hotel we stay at now-a-days
we stayed at the courtyard in New Orleans, I love their free breakfast in the morning, great way to start the day
I'm a big Marriott supporter. I travel a couple times a month for work and always stay at a Marriott when available. Sadly, I just recently signed up for the rewards program (where have I been hiding?!) and my points pool is in pretty sad shape right now.
Stayed at a Mariott recently and was impressed at its renovation and how comfy the beds were. Kudos Marriott!

We just used up the last of our rewards mileage for a wedding in Idaho.
I'm looking to move and this would be a GREAT help in me being able to go see some places and areas to move to!
I travel a lot and belong to many frequent guest programs. Marriott's has long been the easiest to use and benefit from, and I love the consistency of each Marriott brand.
The Marriott chain of hotels in my opinion means quality. I rely on the Marriott for comfort with class.
A stay-cation would be awesome because we love living in Tucson! We've never stayed at a Marriott but they all seem to be beautiful!
I love Marriott! I haven't stayed in one in a while and I'm about to lose my card status :( There haven't been any available rooms in the places I needed. I'd love to win
My father is very ill and I have been making numerous trips back and forth. These rewards would be excellent!
Love Marriott hotels! Just recently stayed at a Courtyard Marriott and was so impressed! The decor was modern and the service was top notch.
this would be helpful in being able to take a honeymoon!
I love Marriott Hotels. I'd love to take my family and I on a vacation. It's been years since we've gone on any vacation. We mostly do staycations now and would love this. Thanks so much.
We'll be celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary soon and would love to be able to go spend a weekend away together.
I always stayed at Marriott Hotels when I was working. Would like to have a pleasure stay at one of their hotel.s
WE GO TO A MARRIOTT EVERY CHRISTMAS
WITH OUR KIDS AND GRANDKIDS
I love Marriott hotels/motels...always a step above all others. This would certainly be a wonderful win for summer fun! :-) Thank you.
I'd love to win, we love the quality of Marriotts.
I would love a little get away for me and the hubby. He's been working so much this summer I haven't seen him much! Marriott has such nice hotels!
We love Marriott - and I really want try the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa. JW Marriott Desert Ridge is awesome - Scottsdale Marriott at McDowell Mountains, not so great.
I have always wondered about Marriott rewards! My husband and I always stay at the one close to use for a few days for our anniversary! It is heavenly, and the staff there is great! Oh, so there's a chance we could stay this year for nada... sounds amazing!
I attend a conference in Tucson every summer, and my first summer I stayed at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa, the year after that, the rooms filled up so fast, that we ended up at the Marriott near Uof A campus. I liked the Marriott University, but it was the JW Starr Pass, that I would really want to stay at again. They had the most delicious food and my sons loved the pool and lazy water park area (:
I LOVE Marriott hotels..If I won, I know that we will find a family-fun Marriott hotel to stay at on our road trip to Michigan in the fall.
*The Starr Pass Resort is our little vacation spot with out leaving Tucson! I hope to stay there soon! *
I don' think I have ever stayed at a Marriott! It would be nice to stay at a better hotel than what our budget usually allows!
BTW, if you are thinking about flying to Washington State then check out Allegiant Air. They are really cheap and fly to some small towns in Washington out of a small airport in Phoenix. We are flying with them to Bellingham, WA in August.
Thanks for the recommendation! I'll definitely check their rates when the time comes.
Do you have family in Bellingham? We've been there a few times..such a beautiful area.
Marriot has a great Hotel line. I have the opportunity to travel occasionally, but not enough to accumulate many points. It seems to take forever! Thank you for the opportunity to win these points!
This would be perfect for us! My hubby and I are looking into several short trips with the kids for this summer and Fall - a day or two in Washington DC, a day or two at the beach, etc. THe Marriot has always been a dependable hotel chain & I'd love to take advantage of their program, and the 25,000 points :)
You know I love travel!! A free place to stay would be a nice change! :)
I think it is really neat that Marriott has a rewards system. My brother-in-law is always traveling for work and usually stays at Marriotts. He has racked up major points. Thanks to it, all housing accommodations for my family for my wedding in San Diego were taken care of without paying anything out of pocket. Great wedding gift, right?
We just got back from our vacation and we're already "dreaming" up the next one. It's so much fun to have adventures with our little ones!
Marriott's are great hotels.
We usually don't stay overnight in a hotel but since we couldn't do anything special for our 10 year anniversary last year I'd love to try this year to do something. I'd kinda like to have my Hubby to myself for a night - the kids are always with us (and I'm glad, but... Momma's feeling the need for some special alone time with Daddy) and I'd love to just have one night that I could just relax and enjoy some time alone with my husband.
Hotels are one of my favorite things (as long as they're nice clean ones, and suites). :) The idea of not having to clean up, of being close to wherever we want to visit and not having to travel far to go take naps or whatever in the middle of the day, the excitement of being somewhere new and different...I love it all. Great idea!
I love to stay at Marriott hotels. I have a credit card with them and have been saving up some points to stay in Grand Cayman in December for my 35th anniversary. Winning this would mean we could stay 2 nights for free!
Wow this would be so fun to win! I have heard of the Starr Pass in Tucson and would love to try it. I just can't decide if I would keep it for me and my family or give it to my parents as a gift.
I love Marriott hotels! And a mini-staycation would be amazing this summer - Scottsdale is calling my name.
We have been so pleased with our Marriott experiences, we would love to win this. With a family of 8, it's not easy to find an affordable place to stay, so this would be most helpful, too! Thanks!
We've been a member of the Marriott Rewards program for years and I think it's great! We also have rewards with some other hotel chains. It's a great idea if you like to travel.
I love the idea of a stay cataion. I am 6 mos prego now so we can't travel far but there are plenty of places close by we could use this for a baby moon!
We love the Marriott and stay there whenever we travel! I'd use this for a quick weekend getaway to somewhere fun! :)
We love staying in Marriott hotels when we get the chance. We've never been to one of their resorts, but I'd love the opportunity to check one out!
Awesome giveaway. I want to go to the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort and Spa.
Seeing as I am due with baby #3 in a couple weeks here, I think I would save this for a bit and plan a vacation when it's easier to travel. There are so many places we want to go! We haven't really done a "family vacation" yet, so this would be the perfect opportunity!
My family loves the Mariott! This would really allow us to get some more vacation time in.
Seeing as I'm itching to go anywhere as the weather warms up here, this is a great give away. We usually just camp, but sometimes hotels can really make a trip feel that much more luxurious. :)
Wow. Stephanie, you have done it again with a great gift! This will be a blessing to whomever receives it. J and I were just talking the other day about how desperately we need a vacation... It might be those postpartum crazies that are driving us to think that. We are starting to get more sleep... slowly but surely. And we are starting to get healthy. Little One still has a cough and congestion, but it seems to be better. She said she would like to try the king sized beds in those Marriot hotels sometime! With mom and dad on either side, of course! :)
We have always had a great experience at the Marriot family of hotels. If I won this, we would go to Baltimore overnight this summer and stay right in Inner Harbor next to the aquarium as a family. What fun!
Marriot is also a child friendly hotel. Its very safe for families with babies and toddlers.
I would love to win this so my husband and I can go away for a night to celebrate our 5th anniversary! :-)
I was unfamiliar as to what the reward points were until now. I would love to win this so we could either go away as a couple or travel as a family (as I don't like to leave my kiddos).
We just spent the weekend at a Marriott Courtyard. It was a great hotel that fit our needs. Would love to take another summer getaway.
We seldom do the hotel thing, but have started to recently. We often take those LONG road trips 1000+ miles, and often just drive it straight through. UGGG. A few times we have stopped for a bed, shower, clean toilets, etc. and our girls LOVED it. We even ventured to Phoenix just for a one night (something to do besides hang out at home) get away. We had loads of fun swimming, channel surfing, and just hanging out together with some "different" walls than our own. What a great gift idea!
Wow, where could you NOT go with a prize like this! I'd save it probably for a bit until I could leave both boys with my parents and have a real anniversary getaway. Can you believe we've been married 5 years and this summer will be the first time we're actually doing something special for our anniversary? Lame! But at least we get to go back to the family cabin where we honeymooned! Oh, and the in-laws are keeping the 3 year old for us! :)
I love that reward points can be traded for frequent flyer miles - that's incredibly useful!
Wow, this is a neat little giveaway. I don't know anybody who wouldn't want this! I've only stayed at the Marriott once, but it was probably the best hotel stay I've ever had. Wouldn't mind doing it again ;-)
The Marriott hotels we've stayed at have always been wonderful, well except for 1 but I won't go there ;) If I won I'd use this to surprise my husband with a weekend, kid free getaway!
I would love to take a mini vacation with just me and my hubby for our 6 year anniversay. The only thing is that I don't think I could leave our girls for 2 days with anyone. I have never spent a night away from both girls at the same time.
We love Marriott hotels! We have escaped to the Starr pass one for a night just me and the hubs, it was beautiful there
I would love to spend the weekend with my family at the Marriott hotels. Have stayed in past and was always pleased.
We have stayed at many hotels and I have never been disappointed with Marriott.
