Ritz-Carlton to Offer Reward Program to Attract Travelers
Marriot International (MAR), the chain's parent, will introduce the Ritz-Carlton Rewards program. Fairfield Inn and Courtyard by Marriot, both of which are owned by Marriot International, already offer points. A 20-night stay at a $300-a-night Ritz room will earn one or two nights at most other Ritz hotels, or 10 nights at a lower-end Marriot brand hotel.
The move is the latest by Ritz hotels to attract travelers. Earlier in the summer, many resorts offered free meals for children.
