Now, we have received word that it’s a done deal.

Marriott will lose 122 hotels in total as a result of missed payments to Service Properties Trust

98 of the Marriott branded hotels lost here will be operated under the Royal Sonesta, Sonesta, Sonesta Select and Sonesta ES Suites brands. This will bring the domestic Sonesta footprint to 178 hotels – up from close to none prior to 2020.

The remaining 24 hotels will be sold, consisting of 8 TownePlace Suites hotels, 13 Courtyard hotels and 3 Residence Inn hotels with 342 rooms).

This is probably a great time for you to brush up on Sonesta and it’s loyalty program + status match and credit card.

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.


  1. We have a 3 night stay at the Kauai Marriott Resort using points scheduled for March of 2021. Havent received an email yet letting me know of the cancellation but Im guessing I will soon.
