Ways to Earn Points and Types of Rewards Renaissance Hotel Offers

Earning points with Renaissance Hotels doesn't happen solely when you stay at one of their hotels. In fact, they take their motto of 'earn points when you sleep' to the next level. Marriott has partnered with American Express and Chase Bank to bring you 4 credit cards that ensure you earn credit for most of your purchases. This includes earning points for doing daily, necessary things such as dining, earning whenever you book a rental through Hertz, earning when you book flights or partnered cruises, and more.

Renaissance Hotels, or Marriott, rewards are pretty luxurious. As you rack up points, you can cash them in for things like:

  • Airline tickets
  • TSA PreCheck or Priority Pass at airports
  • Car rentals
  • Full travel packages
  • Hotels + room upgrades
  • Spa treatments
  • Golfing and other excursions
  • Shopping in-store and online with major brands and retailers

To make traveling even easier, the program allows you to place a hold on a trip redemption stay if you don't quite have the points you need in order to claim a free night. However, you must have all of the necessary points required for your redemption 14 days prior to the trip.

How to Redeem Renaissance Hotels Rewards?
