When staying at Marriott brand hotels, you can earn anywhere from 2.5 points to 23.5 points per $1 spent based on the brand you're staying at, your elite status level, and whether or not you use a Marriott credit card to pay for your stay.

Base points 2.5 - 10
Elite status 1 - 7.5
Marriott credit cards 3 - 6

Base points

Marriott Bonvoy members earn up to 10 base points per $1 spent at most Marriott properties. The exceptions to this are Residence Inn, Towneplace Suites, and Element brands which will earn you 5 base points per $1 and Executive Apartments and Execustay will earn you 2.5 base points per $1.

Marriott Brand Base Points Earned Per $1
Executive Apartments, Execustay 2.5
Residence Inn, Towneplace Suites, Element 5
All other Marriott brands 10

Elite status points

Marriott Bonvoy Members with elite status will earn up to a 75% point bonus on the base rate. For most Marriott hotels, this will earn you up to an additional 7.5 points per $1 spent.

So a $200 stay as a Titanium Member would earn you 2,000 base points plus an additional 1,500 points (75% bonus) for a total of 3,500 points.

Level Bonus Max Points Earned
Member No Bonus 0
Silver 10% 1
Gold 25% 2.5
Platinum 50% 5
Titanium 75% 7.5
Ambassador Elite 75% 7.5

Marriott credit card points

You can earn additional Marriott Bonvoy points by using a Marriott credit card to pay for your stay. Here's the earning rates per $1 spent at Marriott brand hotels for all available Marriott credit cards:

Unlike base points and elite status points, Marriott credit cards allow you to earn points on the entire cost of the stay which includes the taxes and fees. This is because your room charge will appear as a single Marriott charge on your credit card and statement.

Another big difference is that points earned with Marriott credit cards will post to your account after your statement ends. They are not added to your balance shortly after your stay like base points and elite status points.

Example: A $200 stay as a Titanium Member using a Marriott credit card that earns 6X on Marriott spend would earn 2,000 base points, 1,500 points from elite status, and 1,200 credit card points for a total of 4,700 Marriott Bonvoy Points.
