While looking over the terms of this offer I wasn’t happy to see how Marriott defined a stay. “A stay is defined as consecutive nights spent in the same hotel, regardless of check-in/check-out activity“. So to earn each 1,000 SkyMiles bonus, 2 consecutive nights are required at the Marriott property you book.
I misread what Marriott considered a stay to mean which was pointed out by reader Bob. To clarify, I tweeted Marriott and got this response: One reservation equals one stay. A one night reservation would count as a stay.
If you’re planning to stay at a Marriott and would prefer to earn Delta miles, then this is a nice little bonus. However, I by no means would go out of my way to book due to this promo.
